Hypnobirthing London - Teachers' Directory
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.
My name is Lorraine and I am a KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner, as well as a yoga teacher and NLP practitioner.
I offer hypnobirthing courses across North West London, West London and Middlesex, including Queen's Park, Wembley, Harrow, Ealing and beyond.
For many years I have worked as a yoga teacher and gained valuable experience guiding people towards a greater awareness of their mind-body connection and supporting their well-being. I am also trained in NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming).
Through my experience of witnessing how the power of the mind and breath affect the body, I was naturally drawn to hypnobirthing. In my classes, I am able to draw upon both my yoga and NLP training, which are both closely linked to the key premises of hypnobirthing.
I am passionate about how hypnobirthing can prepare mothers-to-be to have a more positive pregnancy, labour and birth. I love supporting couples on their journey and providing them with tools to support deep relaxation and feelings of calm confidence. What you learn in hypnobirthing prepares you not only for a wonderful birth, but also gives you skills that are useful in all aspects of life.
I look forward to guiding you as you prepare for a natural birth and helping you achieve the best possible birth experience for you.
My name is Edwina and as well as being mum to two gorgeous girls, I’m a KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner; ‘Birthing from Within’ Birth Preparation Mentor; Life Coach and experienced Registered Shiatsu Practitioner, specialising in pregnancy. In a previous life, many moons ago, I was a Chartered Accountant!
As the founder of ‘Birthways’, I’m passionate about helping couples have a positive, empowering birth experience however events may unfold.
My range of qualifications and professional experience allow me to offer you support on many levels (emotionally, mentally and physically) throughout your pregnancy. I will give you the tools to achieve the best birth for you and increase your potential of a calmer, gentler birth.
You’ll learn ways to relax; release any fears and anxieties; build trust and confidence in your body’s ability to birth and feel fully prepared and aware of all your options.
My passion for birth started during a postgraduate course in ‘Shiatsu for Maternity and the Postnatal Period’. This simmering passion ignited after my two amazing home births. Despite some unexpected events along the way, including a hospital visit, throughout my labour I truly felt a deep level of calm and at one with the powerful flow of nature and birth. There’s nothing quite like that magic moment when you realise ‘I did it…We did it!!!’ The recognition that you stepped into the unknown; laboured; did what you instinctively needed to do to get through each moment and were now on the other side with your baby! I strongly feel that my birth preparation significantly contributed to what I can only describe as a life-affirming event.
When I’m not supporting pregnant couples, you may find me at yoga, cycling, playing tennis and being a ‘mummy taxi’ to my 13 and 10 year old daughters... amongst other things!
It’s such a privilege and joy to mentor mothers and their birth partners as they journey towards the birth of their baby and themselves as parents. I love my role as a KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner and Birth Preparation Mentor and look forward to meeting and working with many more families for years to come.
I came to Hypnobirthing like many Hypnobirthing teachers, through being pregnant, using it to birth and absolutely LOVING IT!
Hypnobirthing was first mentioned to me during my first pregnancy, where I had read everything about birth (I was totally prepared for any ante-natal quiz) and took a weekly pregnancy yoga class, all in preparation for the unknown event of birth which I was secretly terrified of. My best friend who was also expecting her first child was telling me about Hypnobirthing and I thought it sounded very much like what I was doing already, getting clued up on ante-natal knowledge and relaxing, so I decided not to pursue it further.
During my labour I knew there was a better way for me, my body and baby to birth but I didn't have the tools.
When I came to my second pregnancy, I knew I was willing to invest in myself as much as I had been baby items and having a good experience was priceless. I decided to look into Hypnobirthing for myself, my baby and also my husband who wanted to be a part of the experience.
I loved the whole experience of wellbeing throughout pregnancy and during labour, as well as the connection I had to my body. The sense of team it gave my husband and I and our son along the whole journey was so important in preparing us all for the transitions and transformations that were happening. We all enjoyed the birth experience and started family life calmly, positively and empowered.
Having had that experience I knew that better births were out there and every mother and family deserved to have them. I also knew Hypnobirthing was a great tool in enabling them. As a teacher I work without judgment about your birth choices and in full support of you having an informed and positive birth that is uniquely yours. I am always honoured and privileged to work with people at this stage in their lives.
Proud and delighted to be a KG Hypnobirthing teacher and a recognised birth doula registered with Douka UK.
My son was born in 2011, my daughter in 2013 and my third baby is due in May 2016. I will always treasure and look back on my pregnancies and my two natural, smooth and calm labours with pride and happiness and I am looking forward to my third labour too.
Giving birth to your baby is one of the most awe-inspiring, wonderful and potentially empowering and rewarding thing you will ever do but it can also seem to some as one of the most daunting or frightening things to do too, and memories of your labour will stay with you forever. This is why having a positive birth experience is so very important. As a fully qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher my aim is to help you have a wonderful, calm, smooth and empowering birth experience, learning skills that can also so easily be adapted to other situations seeking a calm, confident approach in your lives.

we just recently run a group session in East London.
As a Fitness Instructor for many years, part of my job was to keep people motivated and conscious about their body and their health. I helped many to achieve their goals and getting the results what they wanted, and now again to help is all I want.
After hypnobirthing my baby it was clear for me that I do not want to end this journey with my daughter being born. I became a Hypnobirthing teacher myself and now I am ever so excited and passionate about showing you this wonderful way of giving birth.
I am a fully qualified and registered Hypnobirthing pratictioner with the Royal College of Midwives accredited KG Hypnobirthing course.

I am also a mother of two hypno-babies and am passionate about more women gaining access to information that will help them achieve a comfortable and wonderful birth experenience.
I am Mama to three boys with a background in psychology. I am passionate about birth and empowering women having had two wonderful hypnobirths myself (after a less than ideal hospital birth first time round). I am in awe of what women's bodies are capable of and believe strongly that if women and their birth partners are fully informed and equipped with the right tools, then they will have an empowering and positive birth experience wherever and however they choose to birth their baby. Nothing is more rewarding for me than helping women and their birth partners prepare for this key moment in their life.

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.
