Before coming to Belgium I was a qualified nurse with 25 years practical experience and a Master of Studies in Primary and Community Care from Cambridge University. I completed the Rode Kruis Vlaanderen Brevet Eerste Hulp (Basiscursus) and Brevet Helper (Vervolgcursus) in March 2015. Then through Aid Training and Operations Ltd in the UK completed a First Aid Instructors Course and now attend an annual update day in the UK. I teach in line with the requirements of the UK Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 with the content delivered in line with the Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines 2015. This is backed up by my experiences working as a prenatal teacher (Diploma of Higher Education Antenatal Education) and mum to my 14 year old daughter with a home constantly echoing with the sound of giggling young people and a husband who is rather fond of DIY!
I look forward to meeting at a class soon
First Aid Instructor Qualifications
P.S. I am also an accredited KG Hypnobirthing Teacher and can offer a complete birth education programme. During a 12 hour course you will learn how to release fear (which can create pain) and gain a powerful toolkit of techniques including breathing, visualisation and self-hypnosis to help you journey confidently through your labour. By using self-hypnosis techniques you, as the one in control, will be able to put yourself into an altered state of awareness during labour to remain relaxed and calm. Hypnobirthing acknowledges the importance of the birth companion's role and gives them a specific part to play. What makes it special is the extra insight it offers in how to use hypnobirthing in the medical system in which you find yourself. This is extremely important as the environment you are in and the people around you can make a significant difference to your experience of giving birth.
