My name is Natalie and as well as being a mother and grandmother I am a qualified meditation and mindfulness teacher and KGHypnobirther, accredited through OFQAL and qualified with a Diploma (distinction) from the British School of Meditation and a Level 3 qualification from ASCENTIS in meditation teaching. As a secondary teacher and adult education teacher, I have been instructing children and adults for over 25 years in relaxation and meditation techniques and specialise in using the mind-body relationship to control pain, both short and long term. Having used this myself I believe passionately that birth can be a joyful and affirming experience and that through knowledge, understanding and preparation both parents can enjoy the gentle birth of their baby.
Originally trained as a counsellor, I worked with young people with addiction and later qualified as a secondary school teacher. During this time I also learned to meditate and soon began to pass on this skill to others; I have now been teaching meditation for almost thirty years. Having used a form of hypnobirthing for my second and third births, and to support my own daughter in the birth of her baby, I wanted to combine this knowledge with my knowledge of relaxation and mindfulness techniques to support pregnant women further. I completed the KGHypnobirthing course to enable me to offer this specialist technique with the antenatal element which I believe so strongly is crucial to empowering women in taking control of their births.
KGHypnobirthing was the obvious choice for me, not least because it is endorsed by the Royal College of Midwives, but also because it is taught by experienced professionals in both midwifery and hypnotherapy and is rigorous in its expectations of hypnobirthing teachers which appealed to me as a teacher myself. The course itself includes extensive knowledge and information for the parents as well as the materials to prepare well for the birth which I believe to be essential for women and men in order to choose their own way to birth their babies.
