I’m Rose, founder of The Birthing Well, Glasgow. I am a midwife, mum, pre and postnatal yoga instructor and Hypnobirthing teacher with the Little Birth Company. I’m on a mission to help you have a positive birth experience.
I have been working as an NHS midwife in London and Glasgow since qualifying in 2016. Having supported many women and birthing people through pregnancy and birth, I feel passionate that a positive birth is about being fully informed and having an active role in the decisions made surrounding your care, and not necessarily about having a pain free and natural birth.
I have cared for many Hypnobirthing mums during labour and have seen what an amazing impact the techniques can have on women’s experiences. This was one of the main driving forces that led me to complete Hypnobirthing instructor training in 2018.
I have practiced yoga for the past 10 years and after having a very positive experience of yoga during pregnancy myself, I decided to train as a pregnancy yoga teacher with Sally Parkes. I found that yoga really helped my mental health during pregnancy and was one of the most positive things that I did.
I am passionate about supporting and empowering women to have a positive birth experience and believe that birth is beautiful no matter how it unfolds.
I currently live in Langside with my husband, daughter and cat Stevie; I am a keen runner, cake lover and dream of one day moving to a remote Scottish Island.
