I am Sam Rose, a complementary therapist, HypnoBirthing Practitioner, HypnoBirthing Faculty Member & NCT Antenatal Teacher and Breastfeeding Counsellor.  I also run the HypnoBirthing European Distribution Centre.  I am also a HypnoBirthing mum and experienced 3  amazing HypnoBirths!

 

 

My backround.....

 

 

I have an MA (Hons) degree in Management and German. After leaving Glasgow University, I attended officer training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. I then spent 3 years in the British Army commanding a troop of tank transporters in Kosovo and the UK. Upon promotion to the rank of Captain, I  served as a Regimental Training Officer.

After an epiphany, I  left the Army to train to become a complementary therapist. I trained in hypno-psychotherapy, acupuncture and many healing modalities. It was whilst I was living in Germany that I stumbled upon HypnoBirthing on the internet as a pregnant mum-to-be. As there were no classes in locally, I asked my mother (Renee Buchanan) to train and fly over to teach the method to myself and my husband. There was no looking back after the HypnoBirthing birth of my first child…I had caught the ‘birth bug’! I then had two further amazing HypnoBirthing births of rather large 11lb babies, the last of which being a Lotus Birth.

 

I have taught HypnoBirthing to couples over many years and I also run the HypnoBirthing European Distribution Centre. I also created and manage the HypnoBirthing UK website and I am the point of contact for any HypnoBirthing UK enquiries. Additionally I am a HypnoBirthing Faculty Member, trained doula, HypnoBirthing Fertility Practitioner, NCT Antenatal Teacher, yoga teacher and baby massage practitioner. I am passionate about birth and believe that the way we are born moulds our perception of life. Birth for a mother can also be the gateway to her birthing herself into a new way of being.
