Hypnobirthing Bristol and Bath - Teachers' Directory
I am a qualified hypnotherapist who is a mother of three and a grandmother to seven. I have been privileged to be birth partner at three of those births.
My passion for empowering women to have the birth that they want and deserve, comes from my own personal experiences of birth, and professional experience using the wonderful resource of hypnosis.
I find nothing more rewarding than supporting mothers to achieve a calm, gentle and confident birth.
I can also offer additional professional support, to mothers who may have experienced a previous traumatic birth, are exceptionally anxious about the birth process, or have other issues that they would like additional help with.
I'm a registered midwife and have worked in all areas of maternity. I am passionate about supporting women's choices and helping them to achieve the birth that's right for them.
I'm a mother of two adult boys and slave to a naughty dog and a haughty cat.
I love teaching and feel enormous gratitude that I am able to witness the transformation that women and their families go through as they journey through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Hello! I'm Cat - a hypnobirthing practioner, hypnotherapist and mum to my two year old daughter.
I had a wonderful birthing experience with my own daughter that left me feeling joyous and so empowered. I feel very passionately that every woman should have the same. It is a pleasure to pass on the information and techniques that can do this.
My hypnotherapy experience means that I am in the privileged position to be able to help with any fears directly, freeing women (and their birth partners) from anxiety and enabling them to have the calm, comfortable and relaxed birthing experience they deserve.
My name is Charlotte Brown, a qualified and experienced nurse and midwife. I became a Registered General Nurse in 1990. This led me to further train and qualify as a Midwife - a job that I found very fulfilling.
I worked in three leading hospitals - two of them in London - as well as benefiting from a years experience working in Australia. Before relocating from London I was a Band 7 Sister Midwife at the prestigious and world famous Lindo Wing in St Marys' Hospital London.
I have helped many women through pregnancy and birth. My experience of childbirth is very diverse and includes home birth, water birth, breach and twin deliveries.
Having moved to Bath I then decided to train as a doula. I undertook two courses - one with British Doulas and one with Doula UK.
After having several clients who had used hypnobirthing successfully, I decided to train with KG Hypnobirthing, achieving my Diploma.
I live in Montpelier with my husband and daughter in a Victorian terrace house, I look forward to welcoming you to my comfortable home. I've had an interest in women's health for many years and trained as a Massage therapist. One of my clients became pregnant, I then completed a diploma in Pregnancy massage and this course inspired me to do my Midwifery degree.
Whilst working on delivery suite I became interested supporting women who used Hypnobirthing, and was amazed how women were able to cope using the techniques. When I became pregnant I completed a course on Hypnobirthing and used it to amazing affect, I can honestly say that I don't think I would have coped as well without it. Now as a Community Midwife I've had the pleasure of supporting many women in their home who choose to use Hypnobirthing to further aid their relaxation, and felt it was time I undertook the diploma course to teach the course.
My name is Beverley and I am privileged to have been trained to teach the KG method of Hypnobirthing, as well as be a member of the Hypnobirthing Association. As a mother of 3 children I have experienced first-hand the benefits and beauty of Hypnobirthing during the pregnancy and arrival of my 7 grandchildren. I am passionate about teaching and sharing the benefits of Hypnobirthing with other parents to be, empowering them with confidence and techniques to maintain a positive and relaxed state of mind throughout the pregnancy and labour to ensure every aspect is a wonderful experience. The course provides both the mother and birth partner with all the knowledge needed to make informed choices, to relax and release any fears or apprehensions, giving them the knowledge and confidence to work naturally with their body to experience a calm, beautiful and joyous birthing experience. The knowledge gained from the course not only empowers parents to be to have the very best experience of child birth, it also assists in making positive long lasting changes in every aspect of life and has far reaching benefits for both your relationship with your partner and your baby. Alongside my Hypnobirthing practice, I have worked as a diabetes specialist nurse with over 28 years working for the NHS. I am also interested in ‘Mindfulness’ – both personally and professionally as there are many benefits of learning to be/live in the moment, rather than spending time worrying about past and future events. I believe this compliments the ethos of Hypnobirthing
My name is Maritza Becker, founder of Beyond Serenity Hypnobirthing. I am a Hypnobirthing mother of a gorgeous boy and I am passionate about working with and supporting couples on their journey to have a positive birthing experience. I hold a diploma in KG Hypnobirthing (accredited by The Royal College of Midwives). Additionally I am a qualified Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, working with Pre and post-natal clients. When I became pregnant, I decided what a great opportunity to train as a Hypnobirthing teacher and use the skills I have learned for my own empowering birthing experience and to assist mums-to-be with a calm, comfortable and controlled birthing experience. It is such an amazing time for your whole family and calm birthing ensures that this wonderful time is positive for all – you, your partner and baby.
