Hi all, I am Zoe, I studied in Sheffield and have lived and worked in the UK and Cyprus. I fell in love with hypnobirthing when I was pregnant and living in London. From a very young age I always remember hearing my mother saying that giving birth was the best experience of her life. When I started thinking of having a baby myself I wanted to be able to have the same experience as my mother. However, I was afraid of birth, not for one particular reason but for many reasons: The fear of the unknown; The stuff I saw on TV; Some stories that people told me. So all I did was research (online/read books) and when I did the hospital tour at my local hospital in Greenwich - London someone who did the tour with me mentioned the word ‘hypnobirthing’. I wondered, what is hypnobirthing? Will someone hypnotise you when you are giving birth? Little did I know that hypnobirthing would change my life. I did an online course at 36 weeks and it changed my whole mindset. I got my partner involved as well, he was sceptical at the beginning but once he heard a few things about it and saw all the logic behind it he was impressed! What I love about hypnobirthing is that it truly makes you look forward to your birth - I couldn’t wait and it was truly the best experience.
I am so passionate about helping women and their birth partners to look forward to their births, let go of any fears and most important of all to be informed! That's why I decided to become a registered hypnobirthing teacher and by using my academic background to help empower parents to feel confident to be the best version of themselves.
