Alana Hurst has been a Midwife for 15 years and has now also become a Calmbirth Educator. What some of you may not know, or you may even recognise her as being our poster girl or the face for Calmbirth’s, There’s no birth like a Calmbirth campaign which features her very own birth of her daughter Poppy.

“I love my job and the incredible women, families, midwives and other health professionals I have the pleasure to work with. I have always loved sharing birth stories and helping prepare women and their families for bringing a baby in to their lives. I attended a Clambirth session when I was pregnant and I just loved everything about the course and couldn’t wait to become a facilitator. I am a mother to four children and in my spare time I am also a wedding celebrant and love nothing more than going for a run or a swim or reading a good book.”
