I can't believe it's been five years this month since I did my Hypnobirthing training and started my business!
When I started, I thought it would be a hobby. Starting my business changed my life and it really is the best thing I've ever done.
Being a midwife is such a rewarding job and something I trained so hard to do. It took a lot of dedication and blood sweat and tears.
One of the biggest challenges for me and for many other midwives is there are so many women but so little time. I wanted to be able to offer the couples I teach and the wonderful gift of time. I love spending time helping couples prepare for their birth and have time to answer any questions. When you have never done something before, it's the great unknown that makes it frightening. When it comes to birth it is no different.
I just finished teaching couple 100!
I started doing this for friends and family and now it is my job, my passion and my dream. I truly believe I'm helping people more than I ever did before. Couple 100 was a milestone I wanted to celebrate!
The lovely couple had no idea and I managed to keep it secret until I surprised them with some balloons and gifts on their final session.
So I just wanted to use this blog to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to each and every person who has been a client, liked and shared posts on my page and recommended me to friends and family members.
I love my job and not many people can say that.
I also want to thank my Husband and my family for being so supportive. Knowing Stuart believes in me and in what I do is so important. You have seen it first hand when I rocked the births of our children!
Born This Way is continuing to grow and I've just launched the latest programme I will be teaching which continues on the preparation for parenthood called the F.U.S.S free format. I'll be taking couples through helpful and practical support with feeding, understanding baby, sleep and state. (For more information please see the wisehippo.com or email me for more information)
I also have plans for additional training next year so watch this space.
I will be taking people from bump, birth, baby and beyond and I just can't wait to get to work with you in your pregnancy soon!
