About Joan Mills

She attends births as a Doula and supports families as a postnatal doula.

Prior to this holistic work, Joan was a nurse for many years and worked both in the community and hospitals in Accident & Emergency and Intensive Care Units. She is a mum of three children and grandmother of one.
Joan was an inspiring and knowledgeable teacher of the Wise Hippo hypnobirthing techniques. As our doula she ensured that the birth of our daughter was an incredible experience we will always treasure.
Joan gave me the knowledge, power, love, and support with both the hypnobirthing course she taught us and being present at our daughters birth as our doula.
Joan is excellent and creates a relaxing and fun atmosphere – we learned so much about how to approach birth in a positive manner and made great friends along the way.
I enjoyed a normal vaginal birth after a c-section first time round. I learned to trust my body. I would highly recommend Hypnobirthing with Joan.
I had two amazing Hypnobirthing experiences, one was a medical induction of my labour but still a really positive experience thanks to Joans courses.
What is Hypnobirthing?
HypnoBirthing is an antenatal programme designed to prepare both the mind and body for birth.
During your course you will learn all the tools and techniques to enable you to have a calmer, easier and more comfortable labour and birth.
Both in birth preparation and birth itself, these skills and techniques will help manage fear – the enemy of labour – and support the positive birthing hormones (oxytocin and endorphins) to flow and benefit the labour and birth.
Women birthing their babies using Hypnobirthing regularly report positively on their experience, suggest that recovery is faster and bonding and feeding with their babies is quickly established resulting in an all round happier family.
