Hello, my name is Miranda and I am a mummy to Forest and Daisy! I'm originally from the UK, one of 6 daughters to my wonderful parents. I lived in Singapore, and now here in the Netherlands.
I'm so passionate about everything massage, pregnancy and birth related. I never thought I would be! After school, my life was all about travelling with my backpack. I was fascinated with the world! Hungry to scuba dive oceans, climb mountains, learn yoga, meditation, different cultures and traditions. I travelled for 4 years around Australia and Asia, picking up jobs along the way.
Then I met Nik and everything changed. Having my own children opened my eyes to the magical world of pregnancy and birth!
I absolutely love helping to empower women to achieve a calm, comfortable and enjoyable (yes, enjoyable!) birth. I love to help birth partners feel prepared and confident. I enjoy helping parents to continue that calm through bonding with their babies using the loving and therapeutic touch of massage.
Giving birth, and becoming a parent, is a huge journey, a life-changing experience.
I gave birth to Forest and Daisy using HypnoBirthing. I was really scared of birth, petrified even! I'd heard so many scary stories about birth (my own 5 sisters' births too!). But HypnoBirthing changed that. I know firsthand how birth feels and how HypnoBirthing really, truly works, to make the birthing process such a beautiful, calm experience for EVERY woman. I was able to use the HypnoBirthing techniques with my husband, Nik, for both of my (very different) births. I loved it so much that I started teaching HypnoBirthing in 2012, after training with the Mongan Method.
I truly believe that if a woman has great support by her side, she can have the most positive, empowering birth experience. This is why I became a doula. A supportive and encouraging birth partner can be positively birth-changing! HypnoBirthing courses help birth partners to be wonderful support. For some, they feel they need an experienced and skilled female support too, and that's where I can step in. I'm a birth doula and love to support and empower parents through their journey, whether they birth at home, in a hospital, without pain relief, with all the pain meds on offer, or via c-section. Every single birth deserves preparation and love and support.
I began my training in India in 2004 where I fell in love with massage. I then became a Holistic massage therapist in the UK in 2009, and have been learning more and more since then through experience and trainings. I enjoy working with pregnant women especially. A woman's body goes through many changes during pregnancy, and birth, and massage supports those changes, while nurturing her, making her feel wonderful.
I'm also a fully qualified Baby Massage teacher, having trained in London. Baby massage is a powerful way to communicate and bond with your baby, helping to build your confidence whilst supporting and encouraging your baby's development. Touch is so important for a baby's development.
I have been lucky to have helped 100's of families whilst living and working in Singapore, the UK, and now here in the Netherlands, and have experience teaching and supporting in hospitals and in more intimate venues and private homes.
I can't wait to be able to help and support you through your pregnancy, birth and baby journey!

With love, Miranda
