Hypnobirthing London - Teachers' Directory
I had a positive birth experience when my son was born but felt challenged in my antenatal care by an overly medicalised approach to childbirth, as well as the popular notion that childbirth is an inevitably painful experience.
I used Hypnobirthing techniques suggested to me by a friend and it was these small pieces of advice that really helped me to navigate the medical system and to have a positive birth experience.
Realising after my son’s birth how integral these techniques had been, I looked into Hypnobirthing in more detail- reading books and speaking to people about their own Hypnobirthing experiences - and realised that the techniques I had used were just the tip of the amazing iceberg that is Hypnobirthing. I was astounded by the way that the skills that Hypnobirthing provides, along with the knowledge of how the body works in childbirth, can free women from the fear often felt about childbirth, enabling them to look forward to the birth of their child and to have incredibly empowering, positive birth experiences.
And so I knew I had to be part of it! I carried out my training with Katherine Graves and began in my mission to empower women and their partners to experience childbirth as the wonderful, natural experience it is.
Hello. I'm Jemma, founder of Bright Births. and mum to Maya Ocean.
Whilst pregnant with Maya, I did what every expectant mama does and researched everything there is to know about giving birth. I was terrified, but committed to doing everything I could to have a natural and positive birth. A friend recommended hypnobirthing, and having convinced my incredibly sceptical husband to get onboard, we embarked on an unexpected but truly wonderful journey.
Having had a positive and empowering hypnobirthing experience with Maya, I was so inspired that I went on to train to become a hypnobirthing teacher with Katharine Graves - this is the only Hynobirthing course to be accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. I am now qualified to teach the KGHypnobirthing course, and I am also a member of The Hypnobirthing Association.
But most importantly, I am fully committed to helping as many couples as possible have a positive and empowering birth experience.
I am a trained KGHypnobirthing teacher, life + wellness coach with NLP training, meditation teacher and Reiki (energy) healer. My ethos is that a mother is a child's primary nurturer and teacher and in order to give a child the best start in life, the mother needs to have her health and well being needs met. There's a proverb that states "It takes a village to raise a child". In today's society we don't have the same infrastructure as mothers used to, especially in big cities. That's where I come in. My passion is to support mothers through every stage of motherhood so they are best able to support and nurture their child. Through my business Calm Mutha, I have created 3 programmes to help mothers through their mothering journey.
Calm Birth is a comprehensive antenatal training programme designed to release fear and build confidence during birth.
Calm Nurture is a wellness coaching program to help support mothers during the first 40 days of motherhood.
Calm You is a coaching program to help mothers connect back to who they are (aside from being a mother). Whether it be helping support a mother achieve career goals or set new goals for her future as a mother.

Hi, my name is Emily. I am a midwife, a Katherine Graves Hypnobirthing instructor and soon to be mama! I am experienced in caring for women and their families during the birth of their babies, and I am passionate about ensuring mamas have the preparation they need for this incredible journey.
During my work as a midwife I have become intensely aware of how fear can unfavourably affect birth. I have seen first-hand, the difference between women who believed their bodies could and so did, and those who were consumed by fear. I have also witnessed many women who were empowered and confident in birthing their babies as a result of hypnobirthing. These women often go on to have incredible natural births and become confident mothers, giving both them and their babies the best start.
As a result I wanted to help make a positive impact in preparing women, in the best way I knew of, for birth. So, I trained in the KG Hypnobirthing method, on a Royal College of Midwives accredited course, as I believe this course gives women the preparation necessary to have the chance of a beautiful, empowering birth. I am passionate about supporting women on their journey to motherhood and I love watching women grow into beautiful, assured mamas.
I know you can do it, and I want you to believe it too!

My name is Lydia. I am a mum of two and a registered KGHypnobirthing practitioner (KGHypnobirthing the UK's leading provider). The KGHypnobirthing teaching diploma is fully accredited by the Royal College of Midwives, which is a testament to the highest standard of training. I am also a registered member of the Hypnobirthing Association.
With a degree in Sociology & Linguistics, I have an understanding of the power of language, which plays a vital role in understanding why and how Hypnobirthing works.
I come from a creative background, with a focus on training & development of large teams. I have first hand experience of Hypnobirthing and with two contrasting labour experiences, I understand the difference Hypnobirthing makes. My approach to teaching will empower you to have complete confidence in your own understanding and how Hypnobirthing can work for you.
My focus and passion is supporting women to have a joyful, empowered birth, whatever the kind of birth they choose.
I currently teach KGHypnobirthing, Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth Preparation and Post-Natal classes near Queen’s Park/Kensal Rise, close to NW6 and NW10 where I provide holistic support to women during the childbearing year. Private classes are also available.
Hypnobirthing produces effective, more stress-free childbirth to the mother and baby through the use of hypnosis methods to create relaxation. Our teachers are here to teach and support you, so that you can achieve this relaxation during your birthing for you and your baby.
We have teachers throughout Central London and Greater London, which means that wherever you live in the capital, you should be able to find someone who can support you and teach you hypnobirthing techniques for when you give birth. Each of them has been trained and assessed by us, so you can rest assured that whoever you choose, you will receive the best levels of support possible.
Our Core Principles
Each of our teachers also adheres to our code of practice, embracing ethics and best practice when teaching natural childbirth techniques, to enhance birthing for mothers. We also ask them to promote hypnobirthing and natural childbirth, if they do not do so already, to help make it a more widespread choice for a mother and to become more widely understood, generally.
