Thanks for stopping by!
Still regularly known as Alison Fyfe, my newly married name is Alison Brown, and I'm still getting used to it! You could say I'm passionate about birth and women's birth experience but I guess I'll let you find that out for yourself.
It was my son Jordan's birth almost 25 years ago that that set me off on this somewhat Evangelical journey. (Jordan = No 1 son who changed my world for ever). Birth is so important. I'm ever privileged to welcome babies gently in the world. When a healthy mother is fully supported, nurtured, and not disturbed she releases some powerful hormones! It's a heartfelt joy to witness.
And, sometimes Mother's face challenges. Perhaps birth, or the Mother or the baby need assistance. Fully involved, fully informed, nurtured, supported, surrounded in kindness, that's how the Mother rises. When a baby is born, a Mother is born, a family is created. I'll stop there...
I trained in HypnoBirthing in 2008 and myself and my friend, Donna Burns introduced the first of its kind, hypnobirthing service into our local maternity unit. After training as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I was invited to become a faculty member and went onto to become a hypnobirthing instructor trainer. Complementary therapies, yes I do them too.
I ran The Melrose Clinic in Crosshouse and travelled to Iran to train midwives in physiological birth (you can check out my blog here). I then enjoyed a well earned rest and took some time off to get married! I'm now back working from home. You can read some of the reviews.
I'm a lover of life and a life long learner (and a bit technology challenged so bear with me). I'm not sure I'll discover the meaning of life, but I've definitely found the meaning in mine.
Be well and be happy.
RCM Award Winners 2012
A very special moment for myself and friend, Donna Burns when we were announced Winners of the prestigious Royal College of Midwives Award 2012 for Promoting Normality in Childbirth.
I was equally delighted to be Shortlisted for the Mother's Midwife RCM Award in 2013 and have recently been nominated for Midwife of the Year 2018!!
