Hypnobirthing Bristol and Bath - Teachers' Directory
I have been working as a midwife for 4 years!
I have worked within a small hospital where I was a community midwife seeing women at home and assisting women at homebirths. I have also worked in large hospitals within a fast pace high-risk delivery suite.
Most recently gone back to my roots working as a midwife on a MIDWIFE LED UNIT, giving women a "home from home" environment.
I love empowering women throughout labour and birth and seeing couples become parents and families grow. Hypnobirthing has a positive and calming effect on the whole process - getting to grips with the changing female body in pregnancy, labour and birth and also postnatally with feeding and new parents demands.
Having seen its impact, I want to increase the profile of hypnobirthing because it is AMAZING.
Hello I am Lorraine, a passionate hypnobirthing instructor, mum of three and owner of a beauty and well-being salon where I also specialise in pregnancy treatments. In 2015 I fell pregnant with my first born. I spent a lot of my pregnancy hearing many negative stories and naturally I feared birth! however I thankfully discovered hypnobirthing and went on to have an extremely positive birth andhave since gone on to have two more beautiful births. I am so passionate in supporting others to feel confident and empowered in their birthing journey. I spend lots of time studying and reading to give my clients the best and most accurate knowledge. I created Birth to Nurture Co to offer hypnobirthing classes that empower and nurture the mother and their birthing team. I can also offer complementary therapies to help alongside your pregnancy and for the lead up to your birth.
I am a hypnotherapist, former midwife of 20 years experience and KGHypnobirthing teacher. I have used hypnotherapy in labour with my second daughter and supported women using hypnotherapy techniques. I have lots of experience in antenatal education and enjoy working with couples and solo parents and their birth partners, in a relaxed and friendly environment, currently via Zoom.
I have lots of practical experience supporting women with breastfeeding and have also trained hundreds of NHS and early years staff in infant feeding whilst working in breastfeeding/maternal and infant public health. I offer an additional bespoke session on infant feeding for those who would like this.
I am Eleanor, a KG Hypnobirthing teacher and postnatal doula based in rural Wiltshire, near Bath.
I am passionate about the need for birthing people to understand as much as possible about their baby’s birth, and to have the confidence to ask questions, do research and make informed choices. My training as both a hypnobirthing teacher and doula has given me the in-depth knowledge on birth physiology, the support needed and the rights woman have when in labour and birthing their baby. It makes complete sense to me to use what I have learnt, then learn more about hypnobirthing and put the two things together as they overlap and complement each other so well.
I feel so incredibly lucky to have had such positive birth experiences with both my daughters, and very much want to share my knowledge with others. Everyone has the right to a positive and empowering birth experience.
I have been a full time working nanny for nearly 10 years and have worked with serval mothers who hypnobirthed their babies, they had such inspiring and wonderful births that it made me look into it and well here I am! This for me is a different side of childcare allowing me to share my knowledge and everything that I have learnt with families on the run-up to the births. I am also paediatric first aid trained and recently completed a Norland College newborn course.
I am a passionate KGHypnobirthing Teacher and qualified Hypnotherapist based in Bristol. I chose to train as a Hypnobirthing Teacher as I always felt sad and really disappointed when I heard women describe their birth as ‘awful’, ‘traumatic’, ‘not enjoyable’ or that they felt out of control within their own experience because they didn’t what their options were. I truly believe that woman should and can experience a positive and empowering labour and birth and that this can be achieved with the help of the KGHypnobirthing, delivered by Harmony Hypnobirthing KGH. I have seen the incredible benefits that the KGH programme has on mothers, their labours, births and their baby’s.
I look forward to working with you through your pregnancy and birth journey.
I am primarily based in Bristol but can easily visit Exeter and North Devon. Whilst I am happy to travel to accomodate your needs, I am also available via zoom and currently offering a discounted rate for this during covid.
The classes are small and limited to four couples per group but I am available for one to one too with you and your birthing partner.
I offer a monthly taster session so please come and join me to see what it's all about. This might also be helpful for getting any unsure partners onboard too! Please get in touch with any questions that you might have and I am sure that we can make it happen.
Having never heard of Hypnobirthing until I discovered it at 30 weeks pregnant, I am still amazed by the experience and the path it has led me to follow.
My husband and I were intrigued about what Hypnobirthing claimed to be able to do for us and as soon as we started attending our local classes, we were instantly impressed. We learned so much more than the other antenatal classes we attended and we realised there was a very real alternative to the drama, pain and drugs portrayed on television, in films or through the media, along with friends' stories/experiences and what is generally expected by all women.
The techniques I learned in the classes quickly helped me release all the anxiety and fear that I had been feeling, so the latter part of my pregnancy became a much more relaxed and enjoyable affair!
When the big day came, it couldn't have gone better. I was calm and relaxed throughout, didn't need any pain relief at all and my daughter came out coo-ing instead of screaming, appreciating her calm entry into the world as much as we did!
As a result of my experience, I knew more parents needed to know about Hypnobirthing, so I decided to change careers completely and become a HypnoBirthing Educator in 2012, training with The HypnoBirthing Institute in The Mongan Method. I am so very passionate about Hypnobirthing, having experienced it first hand, understanding how much it can help women during their pregnancy, during labour and even long after the baby is born and watching all the couples I teach transform and go on to have better birth experiences too.
In 2020, I furthered my Hypnobirthing career by training with KGHypnobirthing, the home Hypnobirthing in the UK, so that the couples I teach can have the very best experience from the course and further increase their chances of having a wonderful birth. There is so much to gain from attending a KGHypnobirthing course and I am so happy to be teaching this UK-based programme to local mums and dads so they can experience a calm, relaxed and comfortable birth too.
Emma started teaching hypnobirthing after requests from her pregnancy yoga students, gained her hypnobirthing qualification with the Hypnobirthing Association and Katharine Graves and then put what she had learnt into practice during her own pregnancy and labour.
She completed her yoga teacher training with the Sivananda organisation and pregnancy training with Yoga Campus. She is also a qualified reflexologist, trained to the highest qualification level with the Central London College of Reflexologists and is also an Emergency First Response (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) Instructor Trainer.
She is fully insured and a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, the national voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners in the UK.
She is passionate about informing and empowering couples through her hypnobirthing courses to have a positive birthing experience which is uniquely right for them.
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 name is Jenny and I am a Hypnobirthing 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, however it unfolds.
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 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.
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.
