Hypnobirthing Buckinghamshire - Teachers' Directory
I've always been passionate about my role as a midwife and am lucky to do a job that I love and enjoy, however since having my son I have realised my dream to also focus on antenatal education.
I run The Village Midwife antenatal/postnatal courses and offer 1-1 and group hypnobirthing sessions on top of this. As a midwife, I have seen the effect that birth education can have on a woman and her birth partner's experiences and aim to empower them to have the best birth possible, as well as enjoy the antenatal and postnatal periods!
I am also passionate about providing this level of care to women coming to parenthood through all of the different ways possible!
I have worked for ten years in the area of behavioural change and am now excited to be using these skills within this field, working with expectant parents to help towards a positive birthing experience.
I’m Ruth Prowse a qualified hypnobirthing practitioner through KGHypnobirthing. I qualified as a hypnotherapist in 2009 following a Psychology BSc at The University of the West of England.
I am also a hypnobirthing mum myself!
As well as being a KGHypnobirthing teacher, I am also a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and run my own practice in Wendover.
When I am not working, I am busy looking after my two gorgeous daughters and my extremely nosy but loveable cat!

I first discovered hypnobirthing in 2004 while pregnant with my first daughter. I was terrified of the prospect of a natural birth but went on to have a calm, pain free experience where I was in complete control. I have since had two fabulous home births using the hypnobirthing techniques.
Since 2005 I have helped many couples to birth confidently and calmly. I trained with Katharine Graves of KGH and now train trainers as well as running my parent courses.
Holding a BSc Psychology and Biology I recognise the importance of both psychology and physiology in the hypnobirthing training. The course educates and prepares the body and mind using well established biological knowledge about birth processes.
I spent ten years as a teacher giving me a catalogue of teaching methods to ensure you get the best from the hypnobirthing course.
Whether it is your first or fourth, each birth is a unique and emotional journey and I hope to help you to find the path that is right for you.
I have seen the difference that hypnobirthing makes in my own birthing experiences and of those that I have introduced to hypnobirthing. The KGH course I teach will give you the tools to have the positive, empowering, calm and comfortable birth that you want.
I teach hypnobirthing alongside pregnancy yoga, reflexology, giving classes in the Bucks / Berks area. I've been a midwife for 16 years and have a family of two, and I'd love to help you through the birthing process as well.
