Hypnobirthing Aberdeenshire - Teachers' Directory
I used hypnobirthing techniques for the births of both
My name is Kirsty. I live in Aberdeen with my fiancé, Liam and our son, Joseph. Giving birth was the best day of my life and that was thanks to hypnobirthing!
I was terrified when I found out I was pregnant, but completing a face to face hypnobirthing course really turned that around. From there on I was able to enjoy and appreciate my pregnancy, along with the birth of my baby.
My birth didn't go exactly to plan, but the hypnobirthing techniques I learned kept me calm throughout and it was still such a positive experience. I still use the techniques to help deal with day to day stress and find they are hugely beneficial in helping me keep calm amongst the chaos of parenting.
After Josephs birth, I decided I wanted to do my hypnobirthing teacher training to show other women that they can have positive and empowering births!
I am fortunate enough to have friends who are as passionate about birth as I am and also have done their KG Hypnobirthing training. Together we have created 'Empower: Parenting Consultants' dedicated to supporting and empowering parents.
I received my Midwifery degree with distinction in 2011 from The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen before moving to London to work in a large maternity unit. The majority of my time was spent within the Midwifery Led Birthing Unit facilitating mostly waterbirths before caseloading my own antenatal women in the community. Fed up of city life I then relocated to village life, firstly in Surrey and now settled in Nairn, in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. With the move came a new job in in the surrounding community providing antenatal care, postnatal care, homebirths and antenatal education sessions to the women in my care. I qualified as a KG Hypnobirthing instructor in early 2017 after witnessing women using the techniques in labour. I was astounded at how calm, relaxed and confident they were for their own birth and it inspired me to try and provide these tools to the other women in my care going forward. I have also since used these skills for the births of my two children, Euan and Iris. I found that these skills were key to me achieving relaxed and positive birth experiences, even with the need for a medical induction with my first birth.
In my spare time you can either find me on long walks with the kids accompanied by my busy Border Collie Pippa or tending to my chickens in the garden. I can't wait to meet you all and support you on your very special journey.
