Practice Name: Maternal Minds
Location of Service: Berrimah, NT
Hello, I’m Alison, a Darwin local and proud registered nurse and Hypnobirthing Australia practitioner. I view myself as kind, empathetic and an introverted extrovert. I am passionate about perinatal mental health, women’s health and encouraging mothers to create their own positive birth stories. I believe that birth is a unique and individual journey, however, we all need support in our lives and especially during this life-changing chapter. I trust in the methods of hypnobirthing to provide you with a toolkit that will help you to birth calmly and in control under a variety of situations. I chose to become a hypnobirthing practitioner because I want to make a positive difference in the lives of mothers and growing families. In reflection over my professional experiences, I feel there is a lack of support for growing families, particularly about childbirth and childbirth education. When I came across Hypnobirthing Australia, I knew that I just had to be a part of such a wonderful positive birth movement. I want mothers to enjoy their birth and truly believe that they are more than capable of birthing their baby. I hope to be a support to mothers in the NT and give them the skills they deserve to enjoy their birth experience.
