Hi I’m Alex. I trained as a nurse many years ago and then pursued my real passion as a midwife. I’ve always been interested in complementary therapies and how they can work along side the NHS as we know it today.
I had a long break in practice whilst I looked after my four children. My eldest has special needs and when she was old enough for me to return to work, I commenced a rather arduous but rewarding, return to midwifery course.
I saw many changes, some very much for the better, but what struck me most of all was the level of anxiety that some women and their partners had and the lack of available emotional preparation they received before the birth of their child. Something that is such a wonderous event, in so may cases was shrouded in apprehension. This saddened me greatly.
My first experience of Hypnobirthing was when I was responsible for the care of a couple in labour. The mother and her partner were noticeable calm and in control. Mum was completely in her birth zone and the father was impressively relaxed and confident. The atmosphere in the room was lovely and we worked together in a mutually co-operative way. It was not until after the blissfully relaxed birth of their beautiful baby, that I was told they were using hypnobirthing.
And so, this was the start of a wonderful journey of discovery into the world of Mindful Hypnobirthing. So here I am, very happy and fulfilled in being Mindful Mamma Practitioner. What could be better than to be in a position to be able to teach and inform parents so they can feel empowered, confident and prepared.
