If I’m honest, Hypnobirthing was never the plan for me, I got into it because I wanted to be able to support doula clients who were using the method. I was just going to ‘have a look’ , once I started, I became hooked! With two positive but different birth experiences behind me, plus my doula training, I wondered if it could really help me when it was time to birth baby number 4…
…YES it did help! It was like I was bathing in calm itself! Focusing on steadying my breath, silently repeating my affirmation, the induction I'd been dreading became the best of my three births. (if you’ve not done the math yet, yes I have twins.)
From the Uk, I’m a true northerner, even if I’ve gained a few Swedish traits along the way. I’m down to earth, love a good laugh and I’m never without a cup of tea.
2018 was the year I FINALLY got into birth work although it had been on the cards since having my first baby back in 2010.
I started my company, The Birth Suite and shortly therafter co founded Doulas of Gothenburg.
For me, birth really is mesmerizing, so raw and tangible yet intimate and otherworldly. Primal and profound. There isn’t much that beats it.
With that said, birth deserves respect, you deserve respect. Birth isn’t just one day, it’s the first day of a brand new lifetime!
So that’s why I’m here doing what I do, doing what I love. Reframing the way we view birth, the way we view ourselves in relation to birth, one cup of tea at a time.
