A warm welcome to Noreen Hart’s Cherishing Birth website

“A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope and a dream of possibilities”
Edna J. Le Shan

I am the mother of four sons and grandmother to four delicious grandchildren.  Fortunately  they all live close by, so I love spending time with them and seeing them grow and flourish.

I live with my much loved chocolate Labrador Milo, who I enjoy walking in the  countryside around me, particularly if there is a country pub at the end of it!

I am a trained Natal Hypnotherapy Practitioner – all Natal Hypnotherapy Practitioners are personally trained by the inspirational Maggie Howell, the founder the Natal Hypnotherapy. Natal Hypnotherapy is the UK’s number 1 Hypnobirthing method teaching you and your birth partner powerful techniques for a calm and relaxed birth.

I have been an NCT Antenatal Practitioner for over 25 years, as well as an NCT Assessor and previously a Tutor. I am registered to run NCT Antenatal weekend and evening courses in and around Bath and Bristol.

Working as a Doula and Birth Supporter for over 25 years, I have been honoured to support couples during their home, hospital and caesarean births.

Trained as a Pregnancy Relaxation Teacher, I  love seeing the benefits for both mother and baby.
