I’m Megan Rossiter, hypnobirthing practitioner, mother and former student midwife.
based in Surrey, covering areas including Thames Diton, Cobham, St Margarets, Twickenham, 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. 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.
But it wasn’t simply the hypnobirthing techniques that made this possible. The combination of the practical, relaxation tools of hypnobirthing AND the insider knowledge of my choices, options and HOW to get them, is what led to my positive experience and later formed the foundations of Positively Birthing. I often joke in our courses that I could run a whole two day workshop on ‘navigating the maternity system’. And it’s THIS that sets a Positively Birthing Course aside from any other hypnobirthing or antenatal course. You will leave any of our courses not only with a thorough understanding of the physiology of birth, and a whole toolbox of hypnobirthing techniques; but also with the ability to make informed, thought through decisions, to get the most out of your care providers and to access safe, but personalised care.
I am SO excited to share all this with you, if you're ready to make your dream birth a reality, please get in touch!
