1-1 Private Classes
Hi! I’m Linzi,
I live just outside Glasgow with my husband and 4 kids.
I have always had an interest in pregnancy and birth since I was at school. I had planned to study midwifery. But after my first baby, I kind of lost the passion. I had a straightforward pregnancy and birth but I definitely felt like I didn’t have any say in my birth. I wasn’t sure it was the career for me. Babies 2 and 3 came along and I suffered from post-natal depression both times. I wasn’t sure why and thought maybe I was just unlucky?
The turning point came in 2018 when I found out I was expecting our 4th baby.
I started to dig a bit deeper to see if there was anything I could do to reduce my chances of developing PND this time.
I researched about my hormones in pregnancy, how my brain and body are connected, the best environment to support this and the power of positive thoughts.
We (I) decided on a homebirth. My husband trusted that I had done my research and was making the right choice for us and our baby.
I practiced breathing techniques, each week I took time for myself at a pregnancy yoga class and focussed on positive birth stories and videos. I didn’t think hypnobirthing was for me…I had no idea all the prep I was doing was just some of the info I could have learned from a Little Birth Company hypnobirthing course!
Penny was born in the pool at home on the 3rd February 2019. It felt bloody amazing! I was in awe of what my body could achieve. I was on cloud nine! Her birth set me up beautifully for those newborn months. I felt so strong and empowered!
Ever since, I have immersed myself in all things pregnancy, birth and beyond. I studied Maternity Care at college, attended a birthrights workshop, became a Perinatal Family Support Worker, completed my Breastfeeding Peer Support training with NCT and the icing on the cake…I became a qualified Hypnobirthing Instructor.
I absolutely love supporting families to feel confident and excited about their birth. I believe any birth can be a positive one, with the right preparation.
Feel free to contact me to find out more or to book one of my course.
