BARBARA HANACHOVA

Midwife, Mizan therapist, Aromatherapist, student Herbalist

Hello and welcome to my website!

I am a mum of four beautiful kids. Becoming mum for the first time in 2002 set me off on a path of calm midwifery. Since then I have supported hundreds of women on their journey through pregnancy, birth and the first few postnatal weeks. I have worked with women from all walks of life in all settings including labour ward, birth centre and homebirth...

My mission to empower women and provide gentle holistic care led me to train in hypnobirthing (2013), Mizan Therapy (2016) and attend many short courses on pregnancy and birth related topics.

In 2018 I have completed the study of Aromatherapy and Essential Oil Science Diploma with Neal's Yard becoming qualified aromatherapist.

I first trained as La Leche League peer supporter in 2005 when expecting my second daughter. My passion for breastfeeding grew over the years and through breastfeeding my own kids for over two years each. It finally led me to a year long course with Indira Lopez-Bassols, IBCLC (2018) and I am now International Board Certified Lactation Consultant myself.

As a constant knowledge seaker I have been studying herbalism with Melanie Cardwell from the Nature's Pharmacy...

My aim is to help women achieve positive birth and breastfeeding experiences, to empower them to make real informed choices, and to support them on their healing journeys at all stages of a woman's life.
