I'M A SELF CONFESSED BIRTH NERD
BA Hons Midwifery
Hi, I'm Steph. Midwife, mother to 3 beautiful boys, hypnobirthing practitioner and all-round birth nerd.
My love for all things birthing came long before I started my midwifery degree. I come from a strong family background of midwives and nurses. From a very young age I remember thinking "wow, a woman's body can do that!!". My flame for 'birth' was ignited and it only grew stronger.
There is nothing quite so magical and mesmerising as the birth of a baby. Whether you are the mother, birth partner or birth attendant. Some may call me crazy but after the birth of a baby a 'mist' is present in the room with quite a distinct smell. Maybe it's a cloud of oxytocin?
I enjoyed every minute of my midwifery training and being a midwife. However, I always felt like there was something missing. Something just didn't sit comfortably with me. Early on in my training I learnt that good antenatal education was so very important. Women need knowledge, as knowledge is power; tools quite literally for life!
I went on to train to become a hypnobirthing teacher with Katharine Graves, the only hypnobirthing course to be accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. Through completing this course I found the missing piece of the puzzle.
I am SO excited to share all of my knowledge and experience with you. I passionately believe that your birth experience matters. whether that be a home, hospital or theatre birth. So if you are ready to feel empowered and in control of your birth, I would love to hear from you.
