Newly qualified midwife
Bedford Hospital NHS Trust
Chelsea Beckford-Procyk is a newly qualified midwife, hypnobirthing practitioner and anti-racism educator. She is a proponent for the decolonisation of midwifery education and anti-racism in maternity services. Chelsea supports both trainee hypnobirthing instructors and student midwives to identify and challenge any biases they may have and work towards being actively anti-racist moving forward. In doing so she creates a safe learning space where students can ask questions and grow as culturally sensitive practitioners. Chelsea believes women and birthing people from all ethnicities and backgrounds deserve to have positive experiences without fear of bias or cultural insensitivity.
