101: Interview With Miriam Greaves

Episode 101: Welcome back to Real Health Radio. It’s another guest interview episode and this week I sat down with Miriam Greaves. Miriam is a hypnobirthing teacher and mother of two. 

After working for years in the theatre industry in London and New York, she became passionate about every woman having a positive birth experience after her own positive birth.

Miriam trained with KG Hypnobirthing, and now works with parents to build their confidence and give them the tools to not only make a difference to their experience of birth but to give their baby the best possible start in life.

Miriam is also The Positive Birth Movement’s Regional Coordinator for the South East of England – free to attend support groups connecting mothers and pregnant women to share stories, expertise and positivity about childbirth and parenting.
