Hey, I’m Carrie
I am super passionate about all things antenatal, birth and postnatal – I’ve attended more births than you could shake a stick at! My interest in hypnobirthing began when I was a student midwife and I witnessed a hypnobirthing mother for the first time. She was totally in her zone; I had never seen such focus or calming energy in a birthing room. We merely observed as she took care of the whole birth by herself. It got me questioning why this birth experience was so different from others and how I could encourage similar positive birthing experiences.
I’ve been a practicing midwife since 2011, starting off as a community midwife before nipping off to have my own bundles of joy. Nowadays you can find me working as a midwife at a busy London hospital, teaching hypnobirthing and antenatal classes in North London or enjoying family time with my little ones – running around parks, kissing grazed knees and watching endless episodes of Paw Patrol are just a few of my notable skills!
Antenatal education is so important – I jump at any opportunity to expand my own knowledge. I’ve trained in Yoga for maternity professionals with Birthlight, Complementary Therapies for Midwives with Expectancy and attended a workshop held by Spinning Babies. I’ve also trained with hypnobirthing teacher Hollie de Cruz from the yesmum® birth project and I teach antenatal classes for Bump and Baby Club in Finchley and Mill Hill. My hypnobirthing and antenatal classes in North London combine my education, my experiences in birthing rooms and my personal experience with birth to empower you during pregnancy and birth, in short…
