  • My own birth experiences consisted of a hospital birth (2010) and two home water births using hypnobirthing techniques (2012 and 2015) which were attended by my doula.
  • I can recommend beneficial positions, breathing and relaxing techniques during labour to help things progress nicely as well as maximise comfort.
