Hi, some people still know me as Alison Fyfe, but I'm now married to the gorgeous Stephen and now Alison Brown!
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 30 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! My heart bursts every time, even after 25 years of supporting birthing families.
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 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.
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. I'm not sure I'll discover the meaning of life, but I've definitely found the meaning in mine.
Peace on earth, begins with birth.
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!! Honestly, I am truly forever grateful.
