About Alys

Alys the midwife is a midwifery educator, researcher and writer who combines an academic career with her work supporting pregnant people in preparing for birth

She trained as a hypnobirthing practitioner and used her knowledge, expertise and experience to develop Centred Birth, a form of antenatal education which combines evidence based information with techniques of deep hypnotic relaxation and positive mindset.

Alys is also an author and novelist.

I started writing when I was seven, and it’s been the one constant love of my life since. I have a very eclectic background, having both a nursing and a midwifery qualification, a PhD, and having masters degrees in Professional Development and Creative Writing. I I am a bit of a polymath, spending my life teaching and researching midwifery and women’s health, providing Centred Birth classes, and writing fiction.
