Hello! My name is Shona, founder of Empowered Hypnobirthing. I am mummy to one
gorgeous little girl and all round lover of pregnancy, birth and babies! 

I came across Hypnobirthing when I was about 25 weeks pregnant. I was determined to not have the horror story birth everyone had told me I would, so I took matters into my own hands and began to do my research. 

My husband and I completed an intensive weekend course when I was about 30 weeks and I fell in love with Hypnobirthing. I practiced everyday and it completely paid off when I had the most wonderful (induced) water birth. The first words I said afterwards were ‘I could do that again!’ 

I decided to begin teaching as I believe every women has the right to a wonderful birth experience. No matter what their situation, first baby or fifth, every one deserves to feel strong, empowered and confident about the birth of their baby.

I’m so passionate about supporting, guiding and helping women and their partners through one of the most special times of their life. The most rewarding part of the job is seeing a compete transformation in each and every couple and they move from nervous, anxious and worried, to confident, knowledgeable and excited! 

I continue to support throughout pregnancy, birth and parenthood, providing support and honest, relatable advice. These women are absolute warriors and I am there every step of the way reminding them that they are!
