Hi, I'm Katherine
I am a mum of 3 a certified Hypnobirthing Childbirth Educator and Doula.
Sometimes Hypnobirthing sounds too good to be true and I didn't truly believe and trust it would work until I experienced it myself. I didn't have a great first birth experience as I was very unprepared and just thought I would 'wait and see' how I went on the day. I also felt that my doctor knew better than me and should make the decisions for me, which left me feeling very dis-empowered and out of control on my birthing day. When pregnant with our second child, I knew I needed some tools and techniques to help me through and to help me release fear from my previous birth experience. Hypnobirthing helped me to relax and enjoy my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies and labours and have the most amazing experiences of my life, beautiful, peaceful and calm natural births. It was also amazing the difference Hypnobirthing made for my husband, he felt very involved and knew what he could do to help my stay calm, focussed and in my Hypnobirthing zone. It was a very empowering experience for him too.
I'm very passionate about helping couples during this special time of their lives and and also offer birth support services as a Doula. A Doula is a woman like me who has life experience and knowledge, someone you can call on when you're experiencing a crisis of confidence. I don't replace your loving partner, I'm there for both of you and your baby. I provide emotional, physical and practical support during your pregnancy, labour and journey into parenting. Find out more about my birth support services here.
Society often focuses on the baby centred view of birth - as long as there is a healthy baby at the end that's all that matters. I prefer to view birth as baby and mother (and father) focussed, where mother's wellbeing, physical, mental and emotional, is just as important as baby's.
