“Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.”

Welcome to Cloud Nine HypnoBirthing.

Hello… my name is Alison and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist working as a HypnoBirthing Practitioner in Edinburgh, Berwick upon Tweed, the Borders, and East Lothian. Congratulations on your pregnancy, it is such a truly special and important time in your life and that of your baby. I am delighted that you are considering HypnoBirthing to support the pregnancy and birth of your baby. Completing a HypnoBirthing programme can be one of the most powerful and empowering experiences that you and your birth companion can do. HypnoBirthing can enable you to trust and believe in your body and work with your body to have a gentle and joyful birthing experience for both you and your baby. It is therefore very important to feel comfortable and confident in the choice of HypnoBirthing practitioner you work with, I have outlined some of my experiences in order for you to be confident in your choice.

About me

I am a mum of two grown up children and recently became a grandma…this is amazing and scary at the same time! I now live in Dunbar with my husband, and dog ‘Ted’ who I love walking on the beach every day. I practice yoga and I am a specialist pregnancy yoga teacher, for more information on these classes, please call me or go to my website www.cloud9yoga.co.uk. I am a qualified nurse and worked as a Health Visitor for over 12 years and then in various roles in a programme that supported first time teenage parents to reach their potential both for themselves and their baby. During this time, I also gained an MSc in teaching and child protection.

My Background

Along the way I have also gained qualifications in life coaching, reiki, reflexology, Motivational Interviewing and experience of maternal and infant attachment. I currently work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and HypnoBirthing practitioner trained in the Mongan Method. I feel so lucky to do this work. Pregnancy and the birth of your baby is such a special experience and the chance to work with you is a privilege and the most exciting work I could have the opportunity to do.
