Cornwall hypnobirthing doula Alice Rosemary

"I recommend you to absolutely everyone" Jayne Cosgrove, midwife


I'm Alice Rosemary; an accredited clinical hypnotherapist and one of the UK's most experienced independent hypnobirthing teachers. My background in midwifery underpins my teaching. I've taught thousands of families and birth professionals all over the world. As a registrant of the Professional Standards Authority accredited Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), I'm a trusted provider as recommended by the NHS

I live with my husband Andrew and 12 year old daughter Maya in west Cornwall, UK.

The values of my homegrown little business are quality, authenticity & affordability. My practice is down-to-earth, holistic, person-centred and evidence-based. I aim to inform and support you to become more confident and empowered, however you give birth.

I've trained with leading international experts including Janet Balaskas, Michel Odent, Adam Eason, Kicki Hansard and Maggie Howell. I gained my psychology and counselling degree in London, before completing over two years of midwifery training at St Thomas' Hospital (catching 22 babies!) Following further courses in childbirth education and hypnobirthing, I began teaching hypnobirthing in 2006, followed up by my clinical hypnotherapy diploma.
