Miriam is an awesome mummy to her superhero son and a charge midwife on labour ward in Edinburgh.
She has loved working as a midwife in London and Edinburgh for the past 13 years. She has always had a powerful belief in the rights for women and families to have the best possible pregnancy and birth for them. Through her own experience of trauma, both personal and professional, she understands the debilitating effect trauma can have on anyone. She brings this insight to her dedication to supporting recovery and resolution.
Gemma is proud mummy to two beautiful girls. She qualified as a midwife nine years ago and is currently a NHS bank midwife in Edinburgh. She runs Positive Birth Scotland, providing unique Hypnobirthing and birth preparation classes in Edinburgh, both nationally and internationally. Gemma also loves teaching hypnosis for childbirth, positive birth and mindfulness and relaxation to midwives and student midwives within NHS Lothian. Gemma is also a NLP practitioner and originally a massage therapist and combines her background as a mind-body therapist in all her practise.
Gemma feels very passionate about supporting parents to experience the most positive birth possible, and when this isn’t possible helping them to recover and heal from any traumatic birth or perinatal experience.
