My name is Samiya Al Habsi, born and raised in the Sultanate of Oman. I’m a technical person by study and profession. I speak three languages, Arabic, English and Swahili. I moved to England to join my husband as he continued his studies. My passion and love for birth and babies made me utilize my time and turn it into an opportunity to expand my knowledge beyond the technical know-how. My journey in the field started by learning baby massage techniques and getting qualified and certified to teach. Furthermore, I then decided to elevate my skills and knowledge in the field of birth and supporting women, by taking the Doula preparation course for birth and postnatal work. I believe that every mother deserves to enjoy pregnancy and birth. Being a certified to support women, and given the knowledge and experience I’ve gained from The Real Birth Workshop, I would love to share what I’ve learnt so that the mother’s journey would be as memorable and positive as possible.
