I’m a midwife with many years experience. As well as being a Registered Nurse I have an Advanced Diploma in Midwifery, an Adult Teaching Certificate and hold The Hypnotherapy Certificate from the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.
In 1993 I set up and developed Aquanatal Exercise classes in Jersey, where, in addition to physical preparation for childbirth I taught relaxation and breathing techniques to encourage natural childbirth. As a result I was approached in December 2002 by a mum-to be who had heard of “HypnoBirthing” – she became the first woman in Jersey to give birth using HypnoBirthing and my inspiration to introduce the programme to Jersey.
In 2003 I became a Certified HypnoBirthing Practitioner and together with my midwifery experience, now offer this original and unique method of childbirth preparation to mums-to-be and their chosen birthing companions.
I’m committed to promoting natural birthing and my aim is for more mums to experience safe, calm, satisfying, stress-free and drug-free births. I have worked as a midwife in Jersey since 1979.
I’m happily married, have 2 sons and live in St Brelade.
