About Us

 

Beth and her team from The Bump to Baby Chapter are midwives. That’s what makes over here so different from the rest. We work in Gloucester Royal hospital so we’re catching babies weekly or looking after mothers and newborns on the maternity ward. We are all mothers too so are able to share what we know from working as midwives but also from what we know and have experienced as mothers.

Beths favourite season is Autumn and she is slightly Christmas obsessed. She is a lover of all things salted caramel, and is always well caffeinated whether that be from a flat white or an espresso martini on a weekend. Before Beth became a midwife she completed a course in Swedish massage. Beth is trained in KG Hypnobirthing, which is a hypnobirthing course that has been accredited by The Royal College of Midwives.

Ali is mother of 2, she is also a midwife at Gloucester hospital, although is currently on maternity leave with her 2nd child, Tallulah. Ali lives in a little village in The Cotswolds.

Sports Psychology vs. Hypnobirthing.

Why they are so similar?

Jonny Wilkinson - Renowned for visualising the perfect kick, from the line that the ball will follow to the feel of a great kick on his boot. The match before that perfect drop kick in the World Cup wouldn’t have been the first time he’d been in that situation. Having visualised that kick or others similar many a times that week before. This is positive visualisation. In Wilkinson’s words, “If you have realistically imagined situations, you feel better prepared and less fearful of the unexpected.” He’s basically HypnoSporting- hypnobirthing but for sportsmen! I’ve wrote a blog about it...
