Hypnobirthing Staffordshire - Teachers' Directory
Throughout my midwifery training, I was amazed and encouraged by the remarkable women I met and cared for, reinforcing my passion to improve birth experiences for all women. When I first cared for a woman who was utilising Hypnobirthing techniques, I was astounded by her confidence in her body, her baby and her birth and witnessed firsthand what a positive impact this had. I am a firm believer in KG Hypnobirthing, having seen it's huge success in a multitude of scenarios and my aim is to assist couples, making their pregnancy journey and experience as calm and positive as possible. I completed my dissertation on the use of hypnosis as a complementary therapy and I was amazed by the quantity of positive research. I was then fortunate enough to win the Iolanthe Midwifery Trust Student Award which funded my Hypnobirthing training. I teach Hypnobirthing alongside my career as a midwife which gives me a full insight into the advantages of Hypnobirthing throughout the birthing journey.
Hi, I'm Amy Rooney (DipHb(KGH)), founder of Empowered Mama Birthing. My mission is to provide birth preparation classes suitable for ALL WOMEN so that however they give birth they do so feeling empowered and positive.
I'ma mummy to two hypnobirth babies - a crazy flame haired toddler and a very chilled baby. I first came across hypnobirthing whilst pregnant with my eldest. My first reaction was that I wasn't the right type of person for hypnobirthing... I was a fast paced corporate lawyer with lists coming out of my ears, surely I'd need to be more hippy and chilled to hypnobirth successfully?
Despite my initial naivety (and stereotyping!) I quickly learned that hypnobirthing was so much more than a bunch of relaxation techniques and that it was applicable to everyone and so beneficial. I went on to have two amazing (but very different) hypnobirth experiences. My passion for all things hypnobirthing was ignited and I haven't looked back.
I love helping parents to prepare for their birth experience.
I am a partner, a mother and a midwife. I have been with my partner Joe for coming up to 14 years. Together we have 6 dogs, 2 guniea pigs a pony and a beautiful daughter.
I qualified as a midwife in January 2013, since then I have worked in a busy obstetric unit seeing over 6,000 births per year.
During this time I have witnessed many births, some straightforward and others not so straightforward. However, the end result is not just about a healthy mum and baby, but also how the woman perceived her birth also.
I started to study hypnobirthing and began to see how it is so detrimental to every woman out there, to learn about her body, how it works and how she can help herself achieve a straightforward, natural delivery. Then for those not so straightforward deliveries, be empowered and confident in their choices regarding their pregnancy and birth.
