Rhonda - Mindful Beginnings - antenatal courses

Hello, I'm Rhonda

Welcome to Mindful Beginnings! I am a fully qualified midwife and proud Mindful Birth Group® teacher, with over 20 years of experience in the field. As a professional midwife and mother, I understand the complexities of pregnancy and childbirth more than most, and how it can often be a stressful time for expectant mothers. 

However, I believe that every pregnancy should be an enjoyable experience, full of excitement; free from stress or anxiety. This ethos is one of the many reasons why Mindful Beginnings was brought to fruition, and I take immense pride in the services I have worked so hard to make happen, and the happy mothers, couples and families I have helped along the way.

    My Story

    After having my two children, I decided I wanted to train to be midwife. I originally started as a healthcare assistant, but fell in love with the role of the midwife as I felt I could provide physical and emotional support to women during their pregnancy, labour and postnatal period.

    With now over 20 years experience, I've focused my midwifery career in antenatal care. I've worked in a variety of settings, starting my career in community-based and antenatal clinic roles, before obtaining a specialist midwife role in Antenatal and Newborn screening and fetal medicine.

    I have always wanted every woman to have a positive experience of birth, whether by Caesarean section or homebirth. My focus on communication has enabled me to support women in their choices.

    In 2022 I became a Mindful Birth® teacher and am so proud to be able to offer this syllabus and truly believe in the techniques that I teach on this course. 

    I believe pregnancy and birth are normal life events which require a partnership between the woman and the midwife to achieve safe and effective care choices within maternity services. I am passionate about giving high quality care, through individualised support, to increase your choices during your maternity care.​
