Hypnobirthing Somerset - Teachers' Directory
I used hypnobirthing techniques in my third pregnancy. It profoundly affected my views of birth and led to a wonderful experience that I will forever cherish. My aim is to share this knowledge to help other mothers to feel empowered when giving birth and have their own wonderfully positive experience.
I have been a midwife since 1999, holding a wide variety of experience in all areas of midwifery care.
I am a mum of 3 children, all still at school. Home is very busy, with horses, dogs, cat, sheep and pigs!!!!!! Never a dull moment!
I currently work in a midwife led birthing unit where I am passionate about supporting women and their partners in all aspects of their care throughout their pregnancy, birth and early days with their new baby.
I am a mother of a ten year old boy and as a family we enjoy a active lifestyle.
It is my privilege to be able to support women with their pregnancy and birth, which is greatly enhanced by the relaxation and methods learnt on the KG Hypnobirthing course.
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 Estelle an experienced Hypnobirthing practitioner of over 7 years standing and hypnotherapist of some 15 years., qualified and experienced in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Hypnofertility Therapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, REIKI (master practitioner/teacher), Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Childbirth Education.
My simple aim for those who take my course is that they have the best "birth experience" possible on the day, be it the first time or the 3rd time - each time is special!
All our teachers have been trained in KG Hypnobirthing and reached a level of skill and expertise we expect from our teachers. Each teacher is given an assessment by us to ensure their suitability and professionalism.
All our teachers subscribe to our core ethics, promoting good practice in the teaching and promotion of natural birthing techniques. They also commit themselves to raising awareness of and knowledge about hypnobirthing and natural childbirth. This is to help broaden general understanding and enable knowledge of its effectiveness to reach a wider audience, particularly expecting mothers.
The use of hypnobirthing as an effective method for giving birth is increasing as medical professionals and mothers are appreciating its benefits, not only for the mother but for the baby as well.
