Kia Ora, I am Gemma. I am a registered Midwife and have always been passionate about midwifery and all things mums, bubs and new families. It's a privilege to be a part of a couple’s journey’s as they grow their whanau. My interest in HypnoBirthing® was ignited early in my career when a first time Mum I was caring for used HypnoBirthing® techniques during her labour. She was so calm and confident in her body and the birthing process. She birthed beautifully. Since then I have cared for more and more women using HypnoBirthing® techniques and was always so amazed at how empowered those birthing women and their birthing partners were.
To train and become a HypnoBirthing® practitioner went on my bucket list and years later I enrolled in the HypnoBirthing® practitioners’ course. Since then I have qualified as a Hypnobirthing® Childbirth Educator (HBCE) and from there Empowered Birthing was born. This work compliments my midwifery knowledge and experience. I am beyond excited to be able to teach women and their birthing partners the skills of HypnoBirthing®, to ensure more women and their birthing partners go into the birthing process feeling empowered. I look forward to meeting you.
