For those who know me, there are no two ways about it, I am dotty about birth, but more than that, I am passionate about the way women give birth.
The way we birth, the way we are supported and the way we are made to feel...those feelings and memories will stay with us for a lifetime.
I provide birth support to women in a variety of ways, one of which is teaching the amazing KGHypnobirthing method, how to have a more comfortable and relaxing birth experience which benefits mum, dad and baby. This means that this is one of the most rewarding jobs ever and the feedback is overwhelmingly positive!
I like to keep things upbeat in the classroom and use a variety of teaching styles and techniques to keep things fresh as well as providing loads of resources. I teach group classes in Sandhurst, Berkshire as well as private one-to-one classes.

Running a busy home with two children, my partner and work as a Doula and Hypnobirthing Instructor, it can sometimes be tricky to balance life. I often find in these moments that I make myself take some “me time” and put to use the fantastic hypnobirthing techniques that I was taught by Katharine.
I very quickly remember how to slow everything down and gain perspective. Often I find my mind wandering to the women I am working with and I feel ….energised ….inspired ….in awe ….full of expectation ….and confident in our and their ability......then its game on!
If you believe in the best that is available then this is KG Hypnobirthing. The method teaches you and your partner easy to learn skills which can also be applied to everyday life situations. You will gather more confidence than you currently have and feel secure in making your choices.
It is also a complete course that includes thorough antenatal sessions. Allows you to question and explore what is right for you.
"Lovely and warm lady explained everything really well! Erika gave us everything we needed to know and more by providing information at each session and building our knowledge up. The scripts, I found very useful and relaxing. I found learning about how all the muscles work and being taught how to breathe through the waves most interesting. The course helped me to remain calm and labour at home until I felt I needed to go to the hospital. When I got there I was 8cms dilated!"
