I’m Megan Rossiter, a student midwife, mother and hypnobirthing practitioner
based in Surrey, covering areas including Thames Diton, Cobham, Esher, Surbiton, Molesey, Teddington, Kingston, Hampton and beyond.
My love for all things birthing came long before I discovered hypnobirthing, and I began my midwifery training in 2015. On this journey, I’ve been lucky enough to support many women through labour and birthing their babies, so when it came to giving birth myself I felt pretty prepared, right? Wrong!
I had an in depth understanding of the mechanisms of birth, hospital protocols and medical procedures, but I needed a way of understanding me. This body, this baby! WE had never done this before. That’s when a friend introduced us to hypnobirthing! And it changed me! As a mother, as a student midwife, as a person!
The course was amazing. Within just a few sessions, and some practice at home, I was able to relax, more deeply than I ever had before (which was welcomed during a very difficult pregnancy). My partner felt involved and the three of us felt connected (Me, Hubby and the Baby that is!). We were thrown one complexity after the other, and the prospect of ‘induction’ loomed over us. Hypnobirthing gave us the power to make informed, thought through decisions, to get the most out of our care providers and access safe, but personalised care. The glorious home birth plans we had made went out of the window, but thanks to hypnobirthing, we took everything thrown at us in our stride, and went on to have a calm, connected, beautiful birth! I would do it again tomorrow.
(Now, please excuse the preaching, but I hope you will feel the same after your birth too). WHY, I thought to myself, aren’t all women doing this?! Why isn’t this the FIRST thing they mention to you at your midwife appointments? Why is it still presented as some sort of hippy fad? Since then, it has been my mission to make birth positive, powerful and (dare I say it) enjoyable for new mums and families everywhere!
So, if you're ready to make your dream birth a reality, please get in touch!
