Why The Lemon Tree? What’s different? Why Hypnobirthing? Why not another course or NCT?

As an International Childbirth Educator, Hypnobirthing Teacher & Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioner, I have combined the very best of my knowledge & experience over the years & to create bespoke courses & workshops. Delivering you the very best comprehensive antenatal education there is. When you choose to work with me I can promise you that I’m fully committed to supporting you & I’m passionate about helping you achieve a positive experience. The tools & techniques you’ll learn I have used myself for the births of both my babies, one born in a hospital birthing unit & one born breech at home during the height of the pandemic

Combining

Hypnobirthing with incredible additional elements, all my courses give you the tools, information & confidence you need – whether that be antenatal, breastfeeding or postnatal. You only get 1 chance with each individual pregnancy, birth & baby you have, which is why I believe there’s no room for compromise when it comes to ensuring you have access to the very best education & support out there

Packed with information

Evidence based, research, resources, tools, tasks & more, building your confidence day by day, your birth partners confidence, walking side by side with you supporting you to make informed choices that are right for YOU. Every person & journey is unique, it’s not one size fits all & the current maternity system has many flaws, which is why my courses are designed for all births, for all people, in any setting. I firmly believe that learning should be fun, enjoyable & interactive, this is an exciting time in your life.

What is the Hypnobirthing part? Is it floaty, hippy & only for those wanting a drug free home birth?

Not at all. It’s based on science, evidence & the physiology of the body. It’s all to do with how the mind & body function & connect. Once you know about the science it’s easy to learn the skills & know how to support birth, you & your baby, wherever or however it unfolds. Hypnobirthing simply means – deep relaxation

Check out my client testimonials & client birth stories. How would it feel to have a positive & empowering birth experience? To feel confident, informed & excited? How would it feel as a birth partner to have the knowledge & tools to be a great support? What would it mean to reach your breastfeeding goals – have you seen my Breastfeeding Workshops? Society generates so much fear, people doubt their abilities or don’t have the information they need

Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body and your spirit for the rest of your life”
