I grew up in Leeds and have lived and worked in the NHS as a hospital pharmacist in Harrogate since 2005. I live with my husband Alfie and my 2 daughters Yasmeen born 2018 and Sumaya born 2019. I had my babies when I was 37 and 39 years old, geriatric in maternity terms, but in no way did I feel or want to be treated as such.
I first discovered Hypnobirthing with my first pregnancy, which didn’t quite go as I planned, resulting in an unplanned Caesarean birth, but nevertheless I felt calm and in control using some of the techniques I had learnt.

I was determined to have a physiological birth with Sumaya and I did it with a VBAC birth (vaginal birth after Caesarean) 4 hours after arriving on Delivery Suite. What an amazing moment that was for me, so much so that I started my journey into the birth world, undertaking a Hypnobirthing instructor course with The Little Birth Company during my maternity leave. I’ve been hooked ever since, completely in awe of how our amazing bodies are designed to grow, nurture, birth and feed our beautiful babies. I reflect back on both my birth experiences and how I would have done things differently with the knowledge and understanding I now have. If there ever was a third, it would be different again!

I’m super excited to share this knowledge with you mamas and birth partners so you can make informed birth choices that are right for you and your baby, know how to relax quickly and deeply, understand birthing and postnatal hormones, how to protect & maximise them, how to increase space in the pelvis to help birth baby more easily, how to make informed decisions that are right for you and your baby if interventions are suggested and know how birth partners can be the best support particularly in moments of fear and doubt.

No matter how birth unfolds, Hypnobirthing is for everyone no matter the age, medical/ personal circumstance, stage of pregnancy or whether it is the first pregnancy or not. Turn the feeling of dread of giving birth into that of excitement and empowerment. Welcome to the world of Hypnobirthing ☺
