Karen Colquitt – Smart Hypnobirthing

65 Birchley Rd Billinge, Wigan, Lancashire WN5 7QN, England

Hello my name is karen and I have been a midwife for over 35 years in the Wigan area. I have recently retired and I was fortunate to work with Katherine Graves to undertake the Hypnobirthing training.

With this and my experiences and skills as a midwife I have been able to become an independent hypnobirthing trainer to support pregnant women and their partners to gain a more positive birth experience.

I have always been passionate about helping new parents to be to make the right choices and KGH hypnobirthing has enabled me to share these skills on a one to one basis or in group sessions.

As I live in the St Helens I am central to the Wigan, Warrington , Liverpool and manchester area, so can travel to provide this service in the comfort of your own home.

I look forward to meeting with new families to provide breathing and relaxation techniques which will help them to work together with their health professionals to make this exciting time even more enjoyable


I  have two grown up sons who are now married  and 3 grandchildren. I became interested in hypnobirthing when my daughter in law became involved with hypnobirthing to help her with her second pregnancy.  I was able to witness how hypnobirthing helped her and how calm and relaxed she was.

I was fortunate to undertake the KGH Hypnobirthing diploma and assisted the local NHS maternity service to develop a service for the pregnant women in the Wigan area.

I saw at first hand how women enjoyed the sessions with their partners and who they reported their positive birth stories.

I am looking forward to leading more sessions with women to meet their individual needs.

I am able to offer

•   one to one sessions in the comfort of your own home

•   group sessions

•   Special “BabyMoon” sessions  at local Spa

•   Talks to local groups

•   Mother and baby and pregnancy events

KS- We were very happy that we decided to do the hypnobirthing course  and we are convinced that it made all the difference in achieving the smooth and natural birth

HL-  Thank you for your support.i would like to share my birth experience. My husband said  I seemed to take  myself to another place and the midwife  left me more or less to myself, my husband used the massage techniques when i asked him to. My little girl was happy throughout and she was wide awake and alert. I am so pleased that my birth experience  was very special and with the hypnobirthing techniques i had learned.
