Gorgeous location this morning for a meeting with a cuppa and some awesome cake πŸ’•πŸ’•β­οΈβ­οΈ

⭐️Choosing an antenatal and hypnobirthing teacher can be a daunting process!⭐️
β€’
It's important that you go with the person that you think is pretty bloomin' awesome and are really going to enjoy spending time with during this precious period β€’
To help along the way, I have popped together 5 things you might like to consider when choosing your antenatal and hypnobirthing teacher
β€’
Head on over to my FB page (and why not give it a like while you're there!) and catch me chatting about it 😊⭐️

Yay to capturing the beautiful sky over Milton Keynes tonight! β€’
Love this time of day! Always feels like something magical could happen πŸ’«πŸ’•
β€’
Today has been productive and a wee bit magical β€’
I love days like this when I manage to make decisions about things that have been niggling me!
β€’
Can go into the weekend with a clear head and a clear business plan for next week!
β€’
BRING IT ON! ⭐️

Seriously in love with my new @wearescamp jumper πŸ’•
β€’
Ordered at the @spiritfairs after falling for their stuff in a big way!
β€’
And it's grey and neon...I love me a bit of neon!
β€’
'Kind heart, fierce mind, brave spirit' πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ’«
β€’
Yep, that'll do nicely 😊

It's been just over a year since I qualified as a Wise Hippo instructor! ⭐️
β€’
I remember taking a serious leap of faith...deciding not to go back to a corporate life when I found myself at something of a career crossroads after my 2nd baby.
β€’
It took a lot for me to make the decision to set up on my own and become one of those 'mumpreneurs' I'd heard so much about
β€’
It was all a bit alien to me!
β€’
But I am so glad I did...
β€’
Mini Miracles has opened so many wonderful doors for me and has helped me to realise what it is I love doing...
β€’
I have met so many amazing people and have seen such love, strength and courage...in both my clients and the wonderful connections I now have β€’
I am grateful...so bloody grateful πŸ™πŸ»
β€’
And so I thought it fitting to re-share the birth story of where it all began
β€’
My first ever clients πŸ’•
β€’
This story never fails to bring a tear of joy to my eye and I still feel so privileged to have played any part in the positive birth experience Alison had...
β€’
It truly was the right birth on the day! πŸ’•β­οΈπŸ‘πŸ»

**The Right Birth on the Day**
.
.
It's the foundation of The Wise Hippo birth preparation programmes .
.
And something you'll find me talking about A LOT .
.
I truly believe that women should be supported in their choices when it comes to birth, whatever they may be .
.
And I'm often told 'But I'm having a C-Section, how will the Birth Programme work for me?' .
.
Simple answer is that it will! .
.
If you've got a C-Section planned or think you may be planning one, the preparing for a Caesarean section workshop is perfect for clients who have made the decision that a Caesarean section is β€˜the right birth on the day’ for their baby.
.
.
As with all birth, it is important that you feel completely involved in the decision-making and supported every step of the way .

I've been umming and ahhing about some changes I want to make to the business...
.
Feeling a bit nervous to ensure I feel truly aligned with what I'm doing
.
Then this morning, this affirmation actually jumped out of the pack at me
.
Oh ok then....I'll stop being a pussy and do what lights me up β­οΈπŸ’•πŸ‘πŸ»

I am proud of my achievements πŸ’
.
.
Yeah I am πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
.
.
Perfect affirmation for this mon morn as I start some awesome work for Mini Miracles
.
.
Got me to thinking too about a convo I had with one of my clients
.
.
How we don't feel comfortable celebrating our positive birth experiences...whatever path our birth takes
.
.
That we don't want to stand on a roof and shout 'fuck yeah I rocked it'
.
.
That we'll try and make up some detail so we can join in with the Negative Nancys and not be berated for having a positive birth experience
.
.
Or be told it was just luck
.
.
What the actual? .
.
If you've had a positive birth experience, no matter what path your birth took
.
.
You want to be celebrating the shit out of that!
.
.
Let's change the stories and the legends
.
.
Just as it's ok for people to share their experiences
.
.
It's ok to be proud of our achievements .
.
And it's ok to celebrate the positive .
.

Forging Familes asked mums what helped them in labour and these are some of the answers given. I love that there's such a range. We are all different. We all have different needs and wants. What works for one mama may not for another. And that's ok. We're fortunate to have options, rights, and incredible support in the uk when birthing our babies. We have the power to have #therightbirthontheday by making decisions about what is right for us and our baby, not anyone else. #informedbirth #confidentbirth #birthwithoutfear #amazingbirtheastmidlands #birthrevolutions #amazingbirth #empoweredbirth #empoweringwomen #rockthatbirth

Psyched to see my little advert in a local mag! .
.
Right under the Sudoku challenges...! .
.
That's where any self respecting business wants to be right! 🀣

Awesome πŸ’•

This floored me a bit this morning because sometimes it's a hard one to believe .
but it made me look in the mirror πŸ‘€with a 'you got this', and with a swish of my hair, I made my way out into the world with an air of 'I'm fucking awesome'nessπŸ’ͺ🏻
.
The power of a perfectly timed affirmation πŸ’
.
They can help change that little inner voice who sometimes likes to sabotage our awesome confidence and self belief
.
I love them and I love to see the positive effects they have on my clients

This made me shout MOTHERFUDGING YES 🀣πŸ’ͺ🏻
.
Self belief...self trust...self knowledge...all come from my classes
.
You will be treated like the expert in yourself and your body that you are
.
I am just there to help draw out your confidence and help tell those negative beliefs to DO ONE!
.
I trust that you can have the positive birth experience you want
.
You got this mama and you are AWESOME πŸ’•πŸ’•

Sometimes people come to class worried hypnosis will somehow brainwash them.
Fucking hell yes! Fucking believe in yourself! Strut.

@Regrann from @1thatgotawayy - My friendship sometimes comes with a warning label. Luckily so I get the same type of brainwashing from the women and men in my tribe ❀️ - #regrann

πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰2 years ago today we welcomed our 2nd baby into the worldπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ’•
.
.
My birth was not without its twists and turns but I look back on it with feelings of empowerment and positivity and so so much love πŸ’πŸ’
.
.
I felt respected, supported and in control of my birth experience and my husband and I were a kick ass birth team. .
.
I am forever grateful that I discovered the Wise Hippo and the tools and techniques I learnt and practiced to achieve our right birth on the day! .
.
I was a fucking birth ROCKSTAR πŸ’ͺπŸ»β­οΈπŸ’•πŸ’ͺπŸ»β­οΈπŸ’•

Happy International Day of the Midwife! πŸ’•
May 5th is recognised every year for highlighting and celebrating the awesome work of Midwives.
πŸ’•
The theme for #IDM2017 is "Midwives, Mothers and Families: Partners for Life!. Midwives everywhere understand that by working in partnership with women and their families they can support them to make better decisions about what they need to have a safe and fulfilling birth."
πŸ’
I personally had the support of the most amazing midwives in Milton Keynes, both in hospital and for my home birth. My choices were supported and listened to, I felt respected, as did my husband and there was nothing but care, love and compassion shown to us. (I'm feeling extremely emotional just thinking about it!)
πŸ’•
To all the midwives out there, thank you. Thank you for the incredible work you do.
We celebrate you...you truly are awesome.
