About Vicki Hobbs
My name is Vicki Hobbs and I am a mother of two amazing girls, who due to their 15 year age gap have helped me to adapt and become more patient and resilient through life changes, while improving myself on many levels to become who I am today.
I started my own business as a health care professional in 2004 and have been working with pregnant women since 2006. I help you to prepare your body for your growing baby and to minimise pain and discomfort during your pregnancy and birth. The best part of my job is educating pregnant women with evidence-based resources, tools and techniques in a non-judgemental way so you are confident and fearless during labour and birth.
My mission is to help your body prepare physically for your growing baby and reduce the pain and discomfort associated with pregnancy, while providing you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to have a calm and positive birth and to release and let go of fear. It is so important that you feel safe, calm, listened to and supported.
What Do I Do?
I provide comprehensive childbirth education to eliminate fear so that you feel strong, confident and comfortable with your birth choices.
I educate you on the tools and techniques you can use to stay calm and reduce pain during labour, allowing you to experience a positive, calm birth.
I listen to what you have to say, what your fears are, what your goals are for your birth and what you feel you need to achieve that, which means that I can then start helping you to formulate your birth preferences to achieve those goals.
I train your partners to be the very best support person they can be, allowing you to relax and focus on you, your body and your baby during labour and birth.
I provide a specialist pregnancy massage service, which means you can feel safe having a massage, while releasing tension and discomfort during your pregnancy in preparation for your labour and birth.
As your birth coach I provide you with ongoing education, resources and bodywork providing you with an opportunity to genuinely feel calm and supported while having continuity of care during your pregnancy, labour and birth.
I am highly trained in many different complementary therapies for the mind, body, emotions and energy; which means you can save time and money by using my services for all your needs in preparation for a positive, calm birth.
I offer a private group for couples on Facebook as well as a monthly face to face meet up so you can be a part of a supportive group, which means that you can ask questions, chat to other couples who are experiencing similar challenges and share in positivity and reassurance particularly during the postpartum period as newborn parents.
