As a Mum of 2 high energy girls, my eldest Emily and her younger sister Rosie are two firecrackers full of resilience, determination and a zest for life. Wow do my girls keep me busy, entertained, elated and exhausted all in the same breathe! I love them dearly (most of the time) and birthed them both using Hypnobirthing techniques and Birth Preparations that I had learnt through a similar course to what I now love teaching myself.
My first birth was very straight forward and I achieved a positive experience at home, in my living room with a warm comfortable pool. Honestly, I was that person who actually looked forward to my first birth and although I was exhausted, I was ok – it was ok! Both of my birthing experiences were positive and I stood firm to my preferences with Rosie, bubba number 2. Having learnt about my choices, I felt confident to ask following questions after a decision was agreed that just didn’t sit well with me. I took my query to my consultant who fantastically agreed with me and I was signed off for another home birth. I actually gave him a high five because I was so pleased and relieved I was listened too and that he, an amazing and well respected consultant at Broomfield Hospital agreed I was right.
These are just a few things I learnt from Studying with Katherine Graves, The Wise Hippos and expanding my support circle in becoming a Mentored Birth and Post Natal Doula in Essex, helping and meeting amazing mums through Dovecote, The Mother Side, The Nesting Place and much more.
My family life is blessed and I enjoy teaching Hypnobirthing, Birth Preparations and now proudly hosting Pregnancy Relaxation Sessions at The Nesting Place too.
In a previous life, a life I hope to rekindle is a love of hill walking, an odd new hobby whilst pregnant I began learning the ukulele haha and of course Motherhood is not always easy and there are days I feel I got everything wrong, but the majority of the time Motherhood is amazing and has unleashed a new stronger side to me that I previously didn’t know existed. I hope that you enjoyed reading a little about me, that you’ll come follow me on Facebook, Instagram to say hello and even better hopefully join me with your own Pregnancy and transition into Motherhood xxx
