Hypnobirthing Hertfordshire - Teachers' Directory
My interest and enthusiasm for supporting women and their partners through pregnancy, birth and new parenthood was sparked by my own experiences. Pregnancy and birth is a portal to another world, once you have stepped through it there is no return to your previous life.
Now, as an experienced mother of three older children, a birth and postnatal doula and Hypnobirthing teacher, I have the passion, energy and belief that this is my time to educate, nurture and encourage expectant parents as they prepare for the huge changes in life that a baby brings. I am keen and willing to keep on learning and exploring in order to educate myself, so that I can hand that knowledge on to others.
Having walked the same path that you are now walking, I can understand some of the fears and challenges you might be facing. Let me be your guide so that I can share the skills and techniques of KGHypnobirthing to unlock the powerful resources that are within you, so that you have the strength, stamina and knowledge to face them.
I'm a passionate believer in not only taking care of your body throughout the different stages of life but also your mind. I have a huge interest and love for complementary therapies to bring about a sense of good health and general well being. I'm not only a trained hypnobirthing practitioner but also a Massage therapist and reflexologist, specialising in pregnancy.
I'm a mummy to three small children and I discovered my passion for pregnancy & birth after the birth of my babies. It was by far the most empowering experience I've ever had! I was not aware of hypnobirthing at the time and it wasn't until a friend told me about it, that I realised how similar my birthing experience was to those who had used hypnobirthing. It fascinated me and I thought back to the ways in which I had prepared for the birth of my babies. Without knowing it I had followed a very similar route to hypnobirthing in terms of getting your mind mentally ready. I read lots of positive birth stories thanks to a book called spiritual Midwifery by Ina May Gaskin and I did weekly pilates classes. What I didn't realise at the time was how I was flooding my subconscious with all these lovely positive affirmations, so when the time came my mind and body was in the best place to birth my babies naturally. Lots of people create an image in their mind of the 'perfect birth' but in reality I do not believe such a thing exists. Having the ability to relax, to release fear or anxieties and ultimately allowing your body to be able to do what it needs to, will help you on your way to having the best birth possible. I feel if i'd have done hypnobirthing I would have been in an even better place, not just before and during labour but also after the birth of my babies.
It's important to remember that whatever kind of birth you have you're totally amazing!! Enjoy your babies they grow up so fast!
I am a hypnotherapist specialising in Hypnobirthing and I was a Science and Psychology teacher for 10 years. These skills enable me to be very flexible in my approach. I use a wide range of techniques so that we can find the ones that work best for you, whatever your birth preferences.
There are so many things I love about preparing couples for birth, such as seeing how quickly sceptical partners convert, watching fear turn into anticipation, hearing wonderful birth stories and of course, if I’m lucky, meeting the adorable babies.
I became a KG Hypnobirthing teacher following two amazing and, dare I say it, enjoyable births. Before my first pregnancy I was incredibly sceptical about Hypnobirthing, so I was blown away when simply listening to some CD’s helped the birthing process and me. For my second pregnancy I decided to book a complete course, to see what a difference it could make. As a result, we birthed comfortably and quickly at home.
I have been teaching yoga for over thirteen years and pregnancy Yoga for four years. I teach regular classes in my local community of Berkhamsted.
I am married with two grown up children .
