Hi there, I’m Corinne, birther and nurturer of mothers and babies, lover of gin, books, knitting and science. My dream is for every mother to feel as loved, nurtured, supported and nourished as her baby.
I have been a HypnoBirthing practitioner since 2011, and have more recently expanded my practice and knowledge in completing postnatal doula training.
After doing HypnoBirthing as a first time pregnant mother and having the most incredible birth, I knew it was absolutely essential for me to share HypnoBirthing with others. And so Intuitive Birthing was born. Despite my beautiful birth experience that I had prepared for with countless hours of lovely HypnoBirthing, I was completely underprepared for the postnatal period.
Unprepared for the demands of nurturing a newborn and filled with doubt, I S.T.R.U.G.G.L.E.D! I felt alone. I felt overwhelmed. I felt judged and confused. I didn’t know how to ask for help or that help could come without judgement. I was unable to articulate my needs and I felt like i’d been left in another country unable to speak the local language.
With this experience of absolute isolation and confusion, hindsight has given me the understanding that I was one of many mothers to feel this way. I want you to feel prepared. Confident. Nurtured. Supported. Safe. I want you to feel encouraged to invest in your self care.
