Hello, I’m Alexia
As soon as my second daughter was born I was getting emails (from women I didn’t even know!) asking me how I’d managed to have yet another wonderful birth when I had been so terrified of birth.
It got to the point that I thought It would be quicker to write a book than to reply to them all. So I did. But the emails kept on coming and the book wasn’t ready.
I started the Fear Free Childbirth podcast so that I could share how I overcame tokophobia and was able to have two incredibly wonderful birth experiences. This little maternity side project quickly escalated as I realised that fear around birth was actually a pretty big thing. And I thought it was just me!
Today I help women to lose the fear and prepare for pregnancy, birth and motherhood. I do this through my private sessions, my podcast, my book, my online products and programs.
I also train birth professionals and therapists in my fear-clearance technique so that more women can access the support they need when they need it.
