My name is Diane Fletcher and i have been a midwife working in the High Peak, Buxton and surrounding area since 1982.
Being part of the pathway that parents take when having their babies was never my intended career, I worked as astaff nurse in a Special Care Baby Unit and undertook midwifery to enhance my work there.
The bug bit, so to speak and I have never looked back since!
I have two children, the first premature, otherwise he should have arrived in a local birth centre the second an amazing home birth supported by local midwives and my partner.
My belief is that the mind and body work as one and are not separate, my work with stress therapy underpins my approach to hypnobirthing
Two of my beautiful grandchildren were also born at home in birthing pools. My daughter has lived with a normal approach to midwifery all her life so she had the confidence to be at home for the arrival of my amazing grandsons - who I never stop talking about!
My philosophy is that childbirth is one of the most lifechanging experiences in a womans life and she should be supported to make this a positive event.
I believe in a womans ability to work with her body to enhance the transition to motherhood. Hypnobirthing is an amazing way to prepare for this time in advance and learn to share this preparation with her birth partner, however unwilling this may be to start with...... the bug will bite them too......
I have been priviledged to witness many women who are able to centre themselves and achieve an amazing birth experience with the birth partner being a player not an observer.
