Allison is a certified HypnoBirthing practitioner, hypnotist and mama. She has three children who have taught her the importance of patience, presence and kindness. Having been a young single mother and an older married mother, she brings a wide array of experiences to her classes. She believes that giving birth can be a joyful experience and has a passion for empowering families to experience birth with love and peacefulness. She is committed to personal growth and practices Qi Gong and meditation to expand her compassion for herself and others.
A researcher and analyst at heart, she never tires of learning about birth and is continually reading about evidence based practices while being firmly rooted in the philosophy that birth is a normal, human experience rather than a medical event. She believes that the best possible births occur when medical expertise is brought together with a deep respect for our bodies and our innate birthing wisdom. Birth is an aspect of our sexuality and as such, should be treated with love, respect, compassion and consent.
