I wish I knew then what I know now!
I am so excited to be able to offer hypnobirthing courses to the ex-pat community in Belgium. I have a great insight and understanding of how it feels to have a baby in a country that is not your own, a solid knowledge of Belgium maternity services and an absolute passion for empowering you to birth your baby in a way that is safest and best for you. And, I can sign post you to support networks and services to ease your journey through the early days of parenthood and beyond.
Hypnobirthing provides the tools and confidence for you give birth more gently, calmly, in greater comfort and in safe hands. How wonderful is that! These are skills I wish someone had taught me 14 years ago when I gave birth to my daughter. I am committed to empowering women to have a positive birth experience. I love that KGH places responsibility for the birth of your baby firmly with you! Sharing the wonders of hypnobirthing with you would be my greatest pleasure.
Before coming to Belgium I was a qualified nurse with 25 years practical experience and a Master of Studies in Primary and Community Care from Cambridge University. Studying for a Diploma in Antenatal Education from the University of Bedford (UK) kept me busy as we settled into life in Belgium. I was a Prenatal Teacher for the BCT for 5 years. I qualified as a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher in August 2020.
I receive ongoing support from KG Hypnobirthing, with study days and talks from some of the leading figures in childbirth. This ensures my knowledge stays relevant and up to date.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
P.S. I am also a first aid instructor and offer first aid classes for new parents. Details can be found at www.lifefirstskills.com/
