My name is Valerie Hamilton and I have been a registered midwife and

 accredited childbirth educator for 33 years as well as a qualified yoga teacher with the International Yoga Teachers Association (IYTA) for the past 20 years. My passion for teaching yoga for pregnancy and birth began with the birth of my own children. It was during this amazing stage of my life that I discovered the many benefits of yoga postures, yoga breathing and yoga relaxation to support the body the mind and the spirit throughout the stages of pregnancy and also during the birth process.

My Story

My journey to yoga began at a young age of 17 when I began to practice transcendental meditation and discovered the benefits of sitting quietly and stilling the mind. This eventually led me to practise Hatha yoga as well and began with Iyengar Yoga in my early twenties. My passion for midwifery also was ignited when I was 17 when I had the privilege of witnessing a baby being born while studying child care. This birth had a lasting impression that planted the seed for me to becoming a midwife. The journey to my becoming a yoga teacher materialised after having my own two children and realising the benefits of practising yoga in pregnancy and birth. Practising yoga in pregnancy has many benefits such as minimising stress by encouraging you to stay present and connect with your body, your breath and your baby. Research shows that practising yoga in pregnancy can relieve back ache, headaches, insomnia, swelling, cramps, carpel tunnel syndrome and the breathing exercises and relaxations are a great preparation for labour. 

My journey now after many years of being a midwife, a childbirth educator, an academic and a yoga teacher is to empower women through the power of yoga and instil confidence in their bodies and mind so they can appreciate the full enjoyment of their pregnancy and take control of their birth experience. Women who feel empowered during childbirth will take this confidence with them as new mothers and this in turn will strengthen their families and society. The ripple effects of a positive birthing experience are far reaching and cannot be underestimated.
