Hi, I'm Midwife Hannah
Midwife, Hypnobirthing teacher and Maternity Complementary Therapist
Hi there! I’m Hannah, midwife, wife and mumma to three little ones, Ada who is five, Eleanor who is four and Rupert who is three! I qualified in 2010 as a midwife with a first class honours degree, and feel just as passionate about caring for women and their families 12 years on. During this time, I’ve worked in several different maternity units, and in all aspects of maternity, including obstetric units, birth centres and home birth teams. I've witnessed first hand how important knowledge, confidence and trust is between a woman, her family and her health care provider. The more knowledge, confidence and trust, the more empowered the woman and her family feel leading to a more positive birth experience.
I qualified as a Katherine Graves Hypnobirthing (KGHypnobirthing) Teacher in 2013. I admit, along with most people who hear the term hypnobirth, I was a bit of a sceptic. But, I was astounded at how much sense it made, and how simple the techniques were. Since then, the popularity of hypnobirthing has increased and I see more and more women using these techniques to achieve the best birth for them. I found hypnobirthing an incredibly powerful tool for my own births, and I’m certain that for me personally, there would have been very different outcomes had I not trusted my own body’s ability and had the confidence to ask questions.
Maternity Complementary Therapist
As well as being a midwife I own and run a private maternity practice in Warwickshire and can offer acupuncture, aromatherapy, reflexology and clinical hypnosis to support women and birthing people during pregnancy and in early parenthood. Even though I am no longer based in Surrey clients are still able to access a lot of the services from making bespoke essential oil blends to help with pregnancy and birth, teaching moxibustion to clients with breech babies and teaching acupressure to help encourage labour.
