Whilst working on delivery suite I became interested supporting women who used Hypnobirthing, and was amazed how women were able to cope using the techniques. When I became pregnant I completed a course on Hypnobirthing and used it to amazing affect, I can honestly say that I don't think I would have coped as well without it. Now as a Community Midwife I've had the pleasure of supporting many women in their home who choose to use Hypnobirthing to further aid their relaxation.
I'm a Registered Midwife and have worked in all areas of the maternity services. I am passionate about supporting women's choices and helping them to achieve the birth that's right for them.
I'm a mother of two adult boys and slave to a naughty dog and a haughty cat.
I love teaching and feel enormous gratitude that I am able to witness the transformation that women and their families go through as they journey through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
In addition to teaching and training KGH I am also an Interntional Board Certified Lactation Consultant so I can support families postnatally however they are feeding their baby, and a Certified Women's Coach helping women feel confident, powerful and excited by their journey through motherhood and beyond.
Prior to becoming a passionate KGH Teacher, I worked for a sub-Saharan African girls' education NGO. I have also been a Peer Supporter for Mind mental health charity and a teaching volunteer for school children.
I was a loving Doula to some of my closest friends, before becoming a professional Doula, which led me to discovering the awesome effect Hypnobirthing has on labouring women, their birth partners and their babies. I knew I had to teach it!
My approach is flexible, and based on the premise that no two women are the same, no two births are the same and no two babies are the same, therefore individualsed care and utmost respect for the pregnant person are paramount.
I live happily in Warmley with my partner.
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.
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.
I came to hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my first child in 2016.
As a first-time mum, terrified of giving birth, I was at first a little sceptical about what hypnobirthing could offer. But, about 30 minutes into my first hypnobirthing session, I was a complete convert and I went on to have two separate incredible birth experiences of my own!
I quickly became a keen advocate of hypnobirthing and would urge every pregnant women I came into contact with to "give it a try" because I genuinely believe that every woman's birth experience can be benefitted in some way by hypnobirthing!
Following the birth of my second child, I completed my teacher training with KGHypnobirthing.
I am a positive birth enthusiast, passionate about supporting women to feel prepared and in the best possible position to give birth.
I absolutely love working with women and their partners, be it with their first baby, second, third or more (!) and supporting them in realising their own amazing birthing ability and preparing for a positive birth experience.
Whatever the perfect birth looks like for you, be it a water birth at home to an elective caesarean birth, I will support you in stacking the odds in your favour of achieving the birth you want.
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.
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!
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.
