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.
My name is Becky. I'm a qualified Midwife and Health Visitor. I'm also the proud mother of my little boy. I had such an epic birth with him and I believe this is due to the knowledge and experience that my profession gave me. But not all women have that prior knowledge, which is why I think that KG Hypnobirthing is great! It provides parents to be with the Real information so that they can have a calmness during their pregnancy, Labour and the early days with baby.
I believe in empowering parents to be to have the best Birth possible for themselves.
I am a three time Hypnobirthing mummy, and Clinical Hypnotherapist with a peaceful therapeutic practice just outside Oxford city, but I go wherever my works takes me. I run popular group courses in Oxford, Thame and Eynsham Witney but also offer private classes across Oxfordshire and surrounding counties.
I have experience and training in several types of Hypnobirthing and have 3 very happy hypnobabies! As well as delivering the highly regarded KGHypnobirthing course, I offer hypnotherapy for fertility, morning sickness, antenatal & postnatal services and have great success turning Breech babies with Hypnotherapy.
Before hypnotherapy, my years of scientific learning (biology & psychology) led me to a long and rewarding career in the emergency services. I was able to support people who were often going through the most stressful & challenging times in their lives and am delighted to continue supporting people as a Hypnotherapist. Hypnobirthing is one of my greatest pleasures as a therapist. Having a baby is without doubt a pivotal time in your life, and Hypnobirthing brings invaluable calm and confidence to it. Your memories of your babies birth will last you a lifetime, so why not make them positive?

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.
