My name is Janet Naylor. I am a mother of 3 and have personal experience of self hypnosis during my own births (Hypnobirthing). I have given birth at home and in hospital. In the 1980's I was truly inspired by Dr Michel Odent and Ina May Gaskin. Together with my own experiences this lead me to become a doula accredited by Michel Odent. I later trained as a midwife. As a doula I worked in the North West of England.I have a strong passion to enable and support mothers (and partners) to have a positive birth experience.


In my role as a doula and midwife I have been priviledged to have witnessed many calm and beautiful births unfold, many using self hypnosis or Hypnobirthing. I have been fortunate to have observed many water births, home births,and hospital births, including VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean).


For over 30 years I have supported and empowered women and their birth partners to make informed choices regarding their labour, birth, feeding and early parenting. I currently work within the NHS as a midwife in a midwifery led unit and in community.


I originally trained in The Mongan Method (USA  HypnoBirthing). I am now also practising The Katharine Graves (KG) UK Hypnobirthing. I teach 4 classes or a more condensed course over 2 separate days. I understand that people have busy lives, so as far as classes go, I can be flexible to accommodate your individual needs, either in a small group or on a one to one basis,


In addition to my Hypnobirthing teaching role I work privately as a midwife, doula and maternity reflexologist, offering -


Antenatal care and support

Birth attendence and support

Postnatal care and support


I offer private Antenatal Classes in groups, preparing for labour and birth, helping you to do a birth "plan or preference sheet", role of the birth partner and much more. I also offer One to One in your own home at dates and times to suit your busy lives. In addition to this I offer sessions to prepare for when your baby is born, which include breastfeeding and the postnatal time ie life with your new born, early parenting, bonding, parenting roles, what is normal, changing nappies,bathing baby etc.


Please contact me to discuss your personal requirements and my availability.
