Hi – I’m Lindy, having been a proud HypnoBirthing Mum to my second child, inspired and passionate, I had the opportunity to change my life path and became a HypnoBirthing teacher, bringing the’ KG’ methods to North Wales.
My wish is that all Mum’s to be, find HypnoBirthing, as it is truly precious!!
Hypnobirthing empowers both mother and father and has the most profound effect on the baby which lasts a lifetime. Learn the confidence and the simplicity of a natural and calm birth. Your body is designed to give birth efficiently and comfortably so that birth can be the most wonderful and empowering experience of your life.
Hypnobirthing is a simple, logical and profound antenatal programme with a focus on natural birth. It uses the power of positive language to combine easy to learn methods of deep relaxation, breathing techniques, visualisation and affirmative positive thinking to reduce fear, anxiety and as a result, also reduce pain. Nobody can promise the perfect birth but if you have all the knowledge and tools, you are more likely to stay calm and focused if birth becomes challenging.

Sorry i haven’t been in touch, had my hands full with our new baby!
So baby Otis James Jackson made his entrance into the world on the Friday morning the 25th August at 7.50am. Just 8 hours after his due date! He was born at home in a birth pool in our living room and got to meet his big brother Seth just a few minutes later. Otis weighed 9lbs4oz and I delivered with just gas and air for the last 30mins. The midwives only arrived at 7am!
My waters broke at 1.30am and I stayed upstairs while Dave filled the pool. We used hypnobirthing techniques throughout. Mainly using my affirmations board, calming music, candlelight and burning essential oils. I was so calm during the build up and Dave was a fantastic support. I got into the pool at around 4am and things started to get more intense but I managed each surge with Daves support and thinking of my affirmations and knowing I would soon meet my baby. My mum arrived just before 6am and Seth came down and had breakfast (at the other end of the living room) with his nana.
The midwives arrived and soon after I went into the transition stage, I began to doubt myself but Dave and the midwives supported me and were all so positive. I had some gas and air and I began to push, just 20 or so mins later Otis was born. I caught him and brought him straight to my chest. It was glorious!
I delivered the placenta and gave Otis his first feed on my sofa while we all had a much deserved cuppa. Unfortunately a couple of hours after delivery I was feeling very faint and passed out several times. Although my blood loss appeared normal I had suffered a hidden bleed which was discovered once I was taken to hospital in an ambulance. After a couple of nights stay and two blood transfusions we were finally allowed home. I still feel quite weak (you can see the colour of my skin in the pics) but Otis is so perfect I wouldn’t change a thing.
I am so glad we decided to do your hypnobirthing course and all the practice really did pay off. The contrast between this birth and my first is staggering. I will never view birth with fear again, even after my experience with the bleed. The birth itself was perfect and I will always treasure it. Thank you a million times!

Hiya, just a quickie to say baby arrived safely on Saturday! Didn't make it to hospital and had a lovely quick, calm labour at home. My family were amazed how well I coped and I couldn't have planned it better. The two sessions I came along to were really friendly and helpful, teaching me practical techniques to help focus on a calm birth experience. Highly recommended!
Hi! Just letting you know how we got on - we had a natural water birth this time so i am delighted! A fabulous experience! Our daughter, Ava, was born last Saturday night. The breathing techniques definitely helped me to cope in the early stages and i will be recommending hypnobirthing to my friends! Thanks for your help xxx
Hiya. Would like to introduce you to Aurora born last night at 10.27pm weighing in at 7lbs 13.5oz. We're all home and doing well. I couldn't of asked for a better birth it was quick calm and relaxed. John was fabulous as saying affirmations to me and reminding me to go to peaceful happy place. Aurora was born in her sack in the pool. Just perfect! Thank you so much for giving me the confidence and opportunity to remain so calm throughout which in turn kept baby calm and relaxed too! Xxx

Hypnobirthing was the best decision I made through my pregnancy. Lindy was fantastic, she put us at ease straight away and is really friendly.
All the techniques we were shown really did help us have a calm and relaxed birth, we have recommended Lindy and hypnobirthing to everyone, I can't recommend it highly enough!
Rhys was sceptical to begin with but by the end of the sessions he was more confident than me that it would work. Since having Eira he's no longer a sceptic and believes hypnobirthing was the reason we were so calm and relaxed through the labour.
I began my first hypnobirthing session believing I would want every single pain relief option I could get and didn't believe I could get through it without anything. During the labour I used a birthing pool, some co-codamol and some gas and air right at the end. Because Eira was back to back a dr came in and said I would have to have an epidural, I was so annoyed that he was telling me that I had to have one, he made me more determined that I would give birth without an epidural and 20minutes later Eira was born.

My experience of hypnobirthing was very positive. I had heard about it long before my first pregnancy but knew I would be interested when the time came to have a baby. I had terrible sickness early on but as that faded I was determined to enjoy being pregnant. My hypnobirthing sessions with Lindy were relaxing, fun and most of all positive. I learnt all about what my body would do naturally during labour and that it was not to be feared but actually something to look forward to, after all it is the day you meet your baby for the first time!
My labour started one evening after I woke from a sleep having done a relaxation. We had our baby 10 hours later at a midwifery lead unit and I just used gas and air. It was a wonderful experience. My visualisations and positive thoughts were a huge help. Hypnobirthing gave me an inner strength and a determined state of mind. If the word hypno puts you off (I can understand why) think of it as calm, natural, or positive birthing! We couldn't have got through it as well as we did without the help of Lindy and the amazing hypnobirthing :)
Jane - After a very traumatic long first birth, Hypnobirthing gave me the confidence and belief to trust in nature and I birthed my 2nd and 3rd babies with delight, I loved every second of it, such a precious time.
Maggie – I feel so blessed to have found Hypnobirthing on my second birth, as my first ended in an emergency C section, due to fear and too much medical intervention. I recommend Hypnobirthing to everyone!!
