Former Midwife

HBCE (HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator)

Reflexologist qualified in Reflexology in Pregnancy, Fertility Reflexology and Reflexology Lymph Drainage

My Story

I originally trained as a teacher but took a leap of faith and decided to start a new career in midwifery in 2008, successfully qualifying as a midwife with first class honours in Midwifery Science from QUB three years later!

Since then I have worked as a registered midwife in all areas of maternity care and more recently as a Community Midwife.  I was also part of the team responsible for the 'Getting Ready for Baby' antenatal education programme.

I strongly believe in the ability of women to have a natural birth and have seen first hand the benefits of relaxation and hypnobirthing in helping couples achieve a more comfortable birth experience free from fear. I also appreciate that in some cases couples are not able to plan for a 'normal' birth but I am convinced that education and relaxation techniques are extremely beneficial for them too.

My aim is to help women and their partners achieve the birth experience that they want by empowering them to trust in their bodies and use relaxation and self-hypnosis to assist them to have a safer, easier and more comfortable birth.

Reflexology is a great aid to relaxation so goes hand-in-hand with antenatal education.

I am qualified in both Pregnancy and Fertility Reflexology and also Reflexology Lymph Drainage for women suffering from lymphoedema.
