 OUR STORY 

17883212899908869.jpg

Natasha and Lucy, the founders of the Hypnatal Birth Company, first started their careers in adult nursing. Natasha worked in cardiology at a busy London hospital and, whilst working there, gained invaluable experience and insight by caring for people from all walks of life, and by dealing with many high-risk patients in high-stress situations. Lucy started her Nursing career on Surgical wards and then moved to the outpatients department. Both have seen the full range of clinical problems and are always prepared for the unexpected. 

 

Having always shared a passion and admiration for Midwifery, they left their jobs to pursue a career helping women through this amazing stage of their lives. Their paths first crossed as student midwives and both spent time working on consultant- and midwife-led units, antenatal and postnatal wards, maternity day units before settling into community teams- instantly recognising community midwifery to be the heart of the care provided to women in pregnancy. It's a special privilege to be a part of a woman's journey from their first appointment to seeing them happy at home with their baby - especially if they've been with them in labour!

In response to seeing too many women coming to their clinics fearful of labour, worried about the unexpected and hearing stories of disappointment and regret about birthing experiences, they decided to create Hypnatal Birth Co. to change that narrative and empower women to achieve the right birth for them on the day.

NATASHA

 Registered Nurse and Midwife 

Hello everyone! Originally from Sheffield, I came to London to study Nursing and 7 years later I am still here but practising Midwifery! (I also gained my Masters degree along the way!) I am  really passionate about empowering women and feel that the proper education and calm mindset is at the centre of a positive birth experience. Here at HypnatalBirthco we are here to provide that to you.

LUCY

Registered Nurse and Midwife

Hey guys! I am a mum of two beautiful girls, like Natasha I studied Nursing first but after a few years in different posts, I decided to follow my heart and pursue a career in Midwifery. I want to be able to provide women with the birth experience I never had. After working as a midwife, I now understand the physiology of birth but that can't change my experience. But I would love to arm women with a mountain of knowledge that will hopefully help them to achieve their positive birth experience.
