About Mollie

Hey! I’m Mollie. I’m a mum of two, Hypnobirthing & Birth Preparation Coach and former Midwife (aka a total birth nerd).

I live in the Somerset countryside now, but I previously lived and worked as a Midwife by the seaside in East Sussex. I LOVE preparing women and their birth partners for birth. It feels like a total honour to support parents-to-be with something so personal, and something that I know makes a monumental difference to their experience. My main aim is to change the narrative that birth is something to fear. I love spreading the word that birth can be amazing… And not only have I witnessed these incredible, positive, transformative births as a Midwife, but I’ve personally experienced it, twice! 

Another part of the work I do is creating connection in pregnancy and beyond. Pregnancy and new motherhood can be a lonely time, so I put as much energy as I can into holding space for Mothers, by connecting them and building bonds that will hopefully go on to support each other in this wild ride we call motherhood.

My Hypnobirthing Story – Why I teach 

In 2014 I started my Midwifery training, and quickly noticed Hypnobirthing women very early on – they were so in tune with their instincts and seemed in control, even when it was intense. There was no sense of fear around them and they seemed incredibly in charge of their births. So, when I was pregnant with my first baby I knew this was something I wanted to try too. I couldn’t believe how much I gained from a Hypnobirthing course…even with my Midwifery background. I learnt to completely trust my body and my instincts. And because of all this preparation, I went on to have the most powerful and positive birth experience – a water birth at home with no intervention. I felt calm and so connected to my baby. I wanted to shout from the rooftops for weeks afterwards! I really couldn’t shake that feeling, so 19 months later I did it again!  (Read my positive birth story here!)

Sharing my passion for positive, empowered birth was something I wanted pursue further; so after a break from Midwifery to be at home with my two babies, in Feb 2022 I did my Hypnobirthing training and in June 2022 Mollie Meadows Birthing was born! I am so happy that I have now turned my focus to empowering as many people as possible to have the birth they deserve, through antenatal education, support and preparation. My aim is to help you feel informed, calm and confident for the birth of your baby, however and wherever that may be.

 

 

My mission – Transforming mindsets for birth

The knowledge, skills and transformation you will gain from a course is an investment in your birth, but also in the start of your parenting journey. Having a positive experience can set you up for a smoother fourth trimester (the time where shit really gets real). We all know that pregnancy and birth can be unpredictable, and some things may be out of your control. But my aim is that after your course with me: 

  • You and your birth partner will have undergone a huge mindset transformation
  • You’ll have faith in your body’s incredible natural power to birth your baby 
  • As a birth team you’ll be armed with tools and techniques for an easier, more comfortable birth
  • You’ll feel confident in navigating situations if your birth journey changes
  • You and your birth partner will know the things you can be in totally control of

Hypnobirthing can absolutely benefit all people, all types of births, in all birth places. This is not just for water births at home.

If you have any questions please do get in contact. I’m only a message away and I’d love to support you on your journey to birth.

Love,

Mollie X
