Miranda is a wonderful person and a great HypnoBirthing teacher. She taught me so much and empowered me in my birthing experience. She was my birth doula during the birth of my 3rd baby.  Her presence, plus the things she had taught me, made such a difference.  I experienced giving birth as something beautiful and empowering. She's also an amazing massage therapist! - Stella, Amsterdam

Meet Ana and gorgeous little Theo.  Ana totally ROCKED her birth after taking a HypnoBirthing course with me in 2019.  Here she shares what she think's about HypnoBirthing.   You can read her full birth story here:  

"We are so grateful to Miranda for giving us the tools and confidence to achieve something that I never thought possible – a calm, painfree birth experience with no medication! And we like to think our son’s arrival into this world had an impact as he is the most chilled out little dude on the planet!"

— Kat & Tim, Singapore

“The Doula support during our pregnancy was amazing. Miranda was a constant gentle presence for me throughout my birth. She offered new positions to help my comfort levels and provided frequent physical comfort through touch etc. Even during the stages when I wasn’t very aware of what was going on around me, I could tell that I was surrounded by tons of support from my husband and doula.”

— Shelley & Richard, Amsterdam

A bit about me...

Hello, you're here! yay!


My name is Miranda, I'm originally from the UK and me and my little family have called The Netherlands home since 2017.  


I'm super passionate about supporting and empowering women in their pregnancy, birth and postnatal journeys.  Guess what?  I never thought I would be!  Read more HERE...

I'm grateful to have helped 1000's of families while I lived in Singapore, the UK, and now here in The Netherlands, prepare for birth and motherhood.  I'm so happy to now be able to reach women worldwide, offering support in person and virtually.


I'm so happy you're here!
