For a positive change to your life


Philippa Cowan BSc(Hons), RGN, RM, Clinical Hypnotherapist BSCH (Affil)


I originally trained as a Registered General Nurse and then as a Registered Midwife.  I have now been a midwife for twenty five years.


I have worked both in the hospital and community settings and now work as a Lead Midwife in The Rosie Hospital.   I have assisted many women to have their babies both in hospital and at home and have always believed that women have an instinctive ability to birth their own babies with minimal help from the medical profession. 


Because of my belief in ensuring women should be having individualised care provided by competent and confident practitioners I have also undertaken further training at Masters level to be a Supervisor of Midwives.  This means I am responsible for a group of midwives in the Cambridge area, ensuring they are practicing at a high level of expertise, with up to date knowledge and providing the best care possible to the families that they look after.  Being a Supervisor also means that I am there to assist women to have the type of birth that they want, in the setting that they want, ensuring that they are aware of all options available to them and they can make an informed decision about their care. 


I am also a clinical hypnotherapist and have a diploma from the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.  


I am a trained HypnoBirthing® Practitioner and a HypnoBirthing® Fertility Consultant.
