Hello, my name is Keira. I am a mother, a hypnobirthing practitioner and just starting my journey as a birth/postnatal doula. Having a child changed my life and I mean, really changed my whole reason for being. Bringing a new life into this world is absolutely the biggest deal and to support this, you need a cemented pillar of unconditional love and support so you don’t have to feel like you’re facing any of this alone.
Birth is not a one-off event that automatically equips you with everything you ever need to know about raising a baby – it’s about the whole experience of pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period that set a mother and her child up at the beginning of their journey and it’s essential this is supported physically, mentally and emotionally. When you really look at not only the physical changes that occur during pregnancy, but also the hormonal and mental changes that will continue as you begin your journey as a new family, birth is huge and probaby the biggest thing that will happen in your life. My journey to birth work started 6 months after my daughter’s birth.
I fell in love with hypnobirthing after using it for my daughter’s birth, trained 6 months later and never looked back. There’s something about birth work that draws me in – it’s raw, intense and so incredibly significant, it opens your heart every single time. Working with families and hearing their own, completely individual stories has lead me on to step into the role of a birth and postnatal doula. I’m still quite lost for words about the whole experience because it was so wonderful and life-changing I’m still processing it all. I’m taking the next steps in completing my coursework and connecting with other wonderful mothers, fathers, families and birth-workers, as I start my next adventure.
I’m going to try and document every step of the way, so if you’re interested in my thoughts on how great it is when a baby makes their way earth-side and how incredible it is when a woman transitions into a whole new way of being with so much love – it’s beautiful, stick around. If you’re looking to connect about positive birth/sisterhood/raising a village then let’s have a conversation! ♡
