Hypnobirthing West Sussex - Teachers' Directory
I worked for 4 years in a Buddhist meditation and yoga centre where concentrating on your breath and relaxing your mind and body were the focus of every day. I also trained and worked as a counsellor for several years.
For the last 8 years I has worked in local Children & Family Centres working with families. I became a mother in 1992 and again in 2015....so only a slight age gap! Having heard about hypnobirthing, it seemed ideal. We had been running the fertility treatment marathon for 8 years with all it’s steep hills and u-turns when I finally became and stayed pregnant. I had huge anxiety and panic about ‘everything being ok’ and relaxing felt impossible. Gradually the ‘up’ breathing and scripts helped me loosen up and feel more calm.
I have the three best jobs in the world. Wife, Mummy and KG Hypnobirthing instructor (in no particular order!). Each of my jobs has it's own unique set of challenges and I couldn't love any of them more.
Having had cancer at 18 I have spent a LOT of time in hospitals and as you can imagine a lot of those experiences have been less than pleasant and left me feeling helpless. (Let me assure you, I am FAR FAR from helpless!) When I found out I was pregnant I started to search for something that would give me back some power and control for the birth of my baby, something I felt in my heart ought to feel natural and instinctive.
Whether by luck or judgement I came accross a KG Hypnobirthing class and I made the leap to book in (a little cautiously, half expecting to have incense and crystals waved around me). From the very first session I knew I had made the right choice (even my husband was convinced!!!) and from that moment onwards my passion for the KG Hypnobirthing method has continued to grow. When my son decided it was time to make his way in to the world, the tools I'd learned from KG hypnobirthing kept me calm, in control and helped me make rational and informed decisions when thing didn't go as I had envisioned them.
I didn't have the "perfect birth", but we had exactly the right birth for us. This empassioned me even more to help expectant parents understand that birth is not one size fits all. Birth (and parenthood) when in the hands of the parents without fear or undue influence is, in my eyes, just like love. It's not the same for everyone, it might not happen exactly as you anticipated, it's not always the easiest thing in the world and probably isn't 100% perfect; yet somehow it is exactly right for you. This is the message I want to spread and what I want to set families on the road to acheive for themselves.
Hello, my name is Dariya and apart from hypnobirthing, I have a background in teaching dance, yoga and meditation. I have always been passionate about everything related with the power of the mind&body. I found about hypnobirthing when I got pregnant with my first baby and just thought It would be too selfish not to share it with other women. It did make a profound difference in my nearly 48 hour long labor and thanks to the hypnobirthing techniques and knowledge I managed to have a natural and pleasant birth. I am absolutely in love with this method as it provides a complete antenatal education and gives you the tools to have the best possible natural birth. After the course, you will be full of confidence and trust in the power of your own body to birth your baby beautifully and joyfully. An experience that will empower you for the rest of your life.
My name is Shirley and I live in Fernhurst, West Sussex with our three daughters. Two of these were hypnobirths. My third birth was at home and the most amazing experience I have ever had. Since then I wanted to help others to experience giving birth naturally and comfortably.
Birth and children are my world! I also run world music and movement classes for babies and toddlers called Yo Baby.
I am so passionate about spreading the Hypnobirth word, giving birth is a life changing experience. By practicing Hypnobirthing you are also learning new skills for life that you continue to use after your baby is born.
