Alison Fiddler, Pregnancy specialist and founder of Yoga Panacea
Alison specialises in supporting pregnant mums through yoga and hypnobirthing. Alison first qualified as a nurse many years ago and then went onto become a midwife and worked as a Registered Midwife for 22 years (until December 2019). Alison has been teaching pregnancy yoga and birth preparation classes since 2010, she has cared for thousands of pregnant women as a midwife and has been present at more than 1,200 births.
Alison has a diploma in perinatal yoga and was a teacher trainer for several years - teaching yoga teachers, midwives and other maternity professionals how to teach pregnancy and postnatal yoga.
Many pregnant mums find that they do not see their antenatal midwife or maternity healthcare professional nearly as frequently as they would like during their pregnancy for all the support that they might want and need (especially when it's their first pregnancy). Alison knows first-hand just how busy midwives can be and how you may feel that you do not always have the time and opportunity to ask questions and have the discussions with your midwife in your antenatal appointments that you would like. You can come to any of Alison’s pregnancy sessions and know that you will have time to ask your questions and have unbiased, evidence-based answers and hopefully reassurance from Alison as she supports you through the many changes of pregnancy.
You are in the safest of hands with Alison as she guides you through safe and enjoyable Pregnancy Yoga classes and/or Positive Pregnancy well-being sessions.
Alison also provides postnatal yoga classes to help you regain strength and tone and to provide postnatal support and contact with other new mums.
