Hi! I'm Joanna, a Registered Midwife, Hypnobirthing Instructor and Aquanatal instructor based in Glasgow and Lanarkshire - passionate about all things birth related! Outside the birthing world, another passion of mine is travelling. In the last two years, I have visited 25 countries and counting...
During my midwifery training, I was becoming disheartened by the many women I was meeting who were telling me about their previous "failed" births or women who were terrified about giving birth by hearing these stories. I knew there must be a way for women to overcome these anxieties and give themselves a chance at having a calm and positive birth. This led me to discovering the wild and wonderful world of Hypnobirthing. I love having the opportunity to meet couples, talk through their worries and reassure them that all their concerns are completely rational and that I can help to alter their mindset by teaching them tools and techniques to have a calm, positive birth. I'm passionate about empowering women to trust their body and instincts during the birthing process, and distancing themselves from the mindset of "Am I allowed..."
I'm affiliated with The Little Birth Company and currently teach their wonderful Hypnobirthing Course to parents across Glasgow and Lanarkshire. I have also completed a Royal College of Midwives (RCM) Accredited Course in Aromatherapy for Childbirth, which I have found compliments hypnobirthing well.
