As a Kinesiologist I have a passion for helping others to be healthy and there is no better start to a person’s life than a calm, pain free, drug free birth. The positive impact on both mother and baby’s lives is so important to me and it’s my absolute pleasure to work with families to achieve this. I am a proud hypnobirthing mother of two and now expecting our third baby which I'm extremely excited about. My teaching style is calm and relaxed yet enthusiastic. Teaching KG Hypnobirthing is one of the most rewarding things I've ever done and I love supporting my family, friends and clients during their pregnancy, labour and post-partum journeys.

My amazing first-hand experience using hypnobirthing to birth my daughter was so life changing that I felt it was my calling to spread the hypnobirthing love! 

I am in awe of our amazing bodies and what they are capable of doing. Birth is such an incredible event for all those involved and I am so honored when I am invited to be part of the journey! Contributing to create a positive birthing experience for mums and their birth partners is a real privilege.

My name is Jenny and I am a KGHypnobirthing practitioner based in Bath. I attended hypnobirthing classes when pregnant with my son and the impact it had was so great that I decided to train as a teacher myself.

My aim is that this course makes you look forward to the birth of your baby with excitement and fills you with the confidence you need to have a wonderful birth.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Having worked in the pregnancy and postnatal industry for the past five years I took the opportunity in 2018 to build my own business, centred around women’s health.

My own pregnancy journey to motherhood was a steep learning curve but one I thrived in, so much so that my interest in pregnancy, birthing and motherhood grew. Over the past 15 years I have been combining the experience of having three children, my own professional expertise and passion for education, into a career centred around women.

I am passionate about educating women about their bodies, capabilities and choices throughout the main stages of their lives – pregnancy and birth being a huge part of the journey a woman goes through.

I teach KGH Hypnobirthing ® classes either 1-2-1 or in a group, as well as refresher courses for those that have experienced this incredible journey before. My work is based in North Somerset and South Bristol.

I will always be happy to chat to you about the classes or any questions you might have about Hypnobirthing, so please feel free to contact me via the link on my FaceBook page (Ali Burlingham: Womens Wellbeing) or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Hi, I’m Anna, mother to two children, Lowenna and Jude. I hold a truly passionate belief in hypnobirthing and its potential to transform your birthing experience. My own hypnobirthing journey began during my second pregnancy when I was able to experience the full benefits of hypnobirthing and its ability to allow me to birth my baby how I wanted to.

Empowering both women and men is something I am hugely passionate about. My 10+ years as a Nurse has allowed me the privilege of empowering people and guiding them through momentous occasisions in their lives and I am so excited to be able to help you on this incredible journey!

I have been a midwife for several years, my passion lies with giving women individual care tailored to their needs. 

I have experienced the joy of attending several hypnobirths. I have witnessed many beautiful and peaceful births through this process.   The practice, gives women the tools and the confidence to return to the art of birthing naturally. They are able to call on their own natural birthing instincts, and experience a level of relaxation and calm, which allows them to have a much more comfortable, enjoyable and natural birthing experience. 

   What I have taken from the experience is watching women be more in control of their own birth, they have more information and are able to make decisions with confidence. As a result, many mothers find birth empowering and life-changing – something that carries over into their new role as mother, and often instils a greater confidence in other areas of their life too. Women are more often calmer and so birth a calm baby. It truly is a beautiful experience

 I find that hypnobirthing is a shared experience for the couple and the baby. Partners have a huge role to play in the birth experience guiding the mother into deep states of relaxation, and protecting the birthing environment. I believe that this helps build confidence in a birthing couple, giving each a strong role in welcoming their baby to the world.

I'm a trained nurse and midwife and mother of three. As a midwife of 28 years I have experience in working in hospitals and Midwife led Units. For the last fourteen years I've worked as a Community midwife and have cared for many women having home births. I wish to help and support women and couples through the wonderful, awe inspiring, life changing event that childbirth is, however that is achieved.

Hi, I’m Laura, a qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher DipHb (KG), proud hypnobirthing mum, registered midwife BSc (Hons) working within the NHS in Bristol and the founder of Little Passengers. I now live in the stunning surroundings of the Mendip Hills in Somerset with my husband and little boy, after 12 years of loving life in vibrant Bristol.

With years of experience of caring for women in labour in both midwife-led and high-risk obstetric settings, and attending home births as a community midwife, I see teaching KGHypnobirthing as a natural extension of this wonderful role. I am passionate and skilled in supporting women and their families to have a calm, positive birth experience and transition to parenthood and I know first-hand that hypnobirthing helps to achieve this. I see that those women (and partners) that have practised hypnobirthing are different. They are confident and empowered. They are open-minded and trusting of their bodies, able to let labour progress as nature intended it, gently but powerfully. It led me to seek out & use hypnobirthing for my own pregnancy and experience a birth that I can enthusiastically say I enjoyed. I feel so lucky to be able to say I loved giving birth, despite not all circumstances surrounding my pregnancy being ‘low risk’ and despite all the ‘baggage’ around birth complications and intervention that I carry as a midwife! I teach KG Hypnobirthing because I want others to feel about their birth the way I do about mine. And if it worked for me, then it can work for you!

I believe every pregnant woman needs to know about the difference hypnobirthing can make. I so commonly care for couples who arrive in labour already fearful of what’s happening and the ‘things’ that may go wrong. So it makes sense to me to reach out to couples during pregnancy and help enable women to eliminate those anxieties and doubts, to trust their instincts and be able to leave all the ‘what if’s’ to the midwife in the labour room. What an enormous a privilege it is to teach KGHypnobirthing and be able to help make such a truly special time for couples even better.

I'm an experienced psychologist and Hypnobirthing mum of 3 with personal experience of birthing, both with and without hypnobirthing training.

I built my hypnobirthing practice following ten years plus NHS experience of course facilitation, specialising in CBT and Mindfulness based groups for all types of anxiety.

I can work with parent pairs, individual parents or with groups of parents and birth partners to overcome past experiences, fears and phobias and build confidence in your personal choices and unique birth preferences. 

Please take a look at my website for detailed information about my skills and practice.
