Hypnobirthing Northamptonshire - Teachers' Directory
By day I am a midwife who specialises in homebirth whilst also working regularly on an obstetric unit and a midwife led birthing centre. By night....I still do these things!
In my spare time I am a keen crocheter and love whipping up a new scarf or hat as well as attempting some more ambitious projects.
At the beginning of the year I took up running and this has now become a great hobby of mine along with attempting to get fit.
I have been a nurse and midwife for over 40 years making the move into education 5 years ago. I am currently a senior lecturer in midwifery at Anglia Ruskin University and still work clinically as a midiwfe at Peterborough City hospital. I have been passionate about the promotion of normal birth my whole working life and was instrumental in creating the midiwfe led unit at Peterborough with a fellow midwife. Whilst it won't promise you a perfect birth KGH offers strategies that can help empower women and their families to take control of their pregnancy, labour and birth.Within hypnobirthing there are many techniques and strategies that are equally useful for dealing with the stresses and strains of everyday life. My other great passion is holistic therapies. When not working I have my own buisness which offers a wide variety of treaments from massage to bridal hair and make up.
I’m Lois, founder of Precious Bond, a qualified Hypnobirthing teacher, and mother to my very own 'hypnobaby', Ted.
I practised KG Hypnobirthing myself when I was pregnant with my son and I have a really positive birth story to tell thanks to the programme. It inspired me to empower as many women as possible to experience birth in a beautiful way too, so I set up Precious Bond and trained to become a Hypnobirthing teacher on the KG Hypnobirthing teacher training course, accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.
I’m genuinely fascinated by the magic of pregnancy and birth and I’m passionate about giving women a positive experience of bringing their baby into the world. I can’t wait to be part of your journey to motherhood, from beautiful bump to holding your perfect baby in your arms.
