Welcome and Congratulations on your pregnancy!!
I’m Nicole, Experienced registered Midwife (10 years +) and the founder and facilitator of Hydrate and Bloom – A safe space for Mums and Mums- to- be to gain important information, feel empowered and to be themselves without judgement.
I began my midwifery journey in the NHS and then in 2017, my husband and I decided to emigrate to New Zealand with our 3 Children (we now have 4 😊!). It was an amazing experience for all of us, but Personally – I was able to practice midwifery in a truly Amazing, holistic way as an independent Midwife. That experience enabled me to foster deep meaningful connections with families in my care and expanded my knowledge tenfold.
I am passionate about connecting with parents on a personal level and helping them achieve a positive birth experience – it really aligns with me – birthwork is in my DNA.
I’ve supported many women who have used hypnobirthing with both vaginal and abdominal births and I have always been in awe at how calm and in control they have been.
This is why I chose to become a Hypnobirthing teacher on my return to the UK in 2020; to continue connecting, educating and supporting in a way that I can’t do within the NHS. Individualised, evidenced based & not routine.
