In this talk, Alexia exposes the damaging myths that the media perpetuate around childbirth and their psychological impact on women of childbearing age.

Alexia is the host of the award-nominated Fear Free Childbirth podcast, an author, a therapeutic coach and a trainer. She supports women on their journey to motherhood and trains birth workers in her fear-clearance method.
Alexia was formerly a speaker on mindset and marketing to business audiences and spoke at numerous large conferences and regional events all over the UK. When Alexia became pregnant she found out she had tokophobia, the extreme fear of pregnancy and birth. She was able to overcome her phobia using the mindset techniques that she teaches and in doing so realised how much of a problem fear is for women around birth. Alexia is now committed helping women and birth workers take the fear out of birth, and to help women boost their emotional resilience and find their power so that they can become the strong mothers our world needs.
Alexia’s book helps women to shift their mindset around birth and teaches them how to clear their fears during pregnancy and labour.
