Hypnobirthing Cambridgeshire - Teachers' Directory
Hi I’m Jackie, a Mother, a qualified practicing community midwife and recently qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher
I am lucky enough to do the job I love and this is the reason I am passionate about educating women and their families about the joy of a peaceful beautiful birth, creating a positive memory.
I provide antenatal and post natal care for women within my local trust, I teach the NHS parent craft classes, but women wish for more information and alternative choices for their birth experience, and that’s the reason why I expanded my knowledge and skills to share with women who want to give themselves and their babies the best start in life
A little about me.....
My name is Claire and I am a mother of three children, a practicing midwife and the founder of Baby Bird Midwifery Team, which offers unique additional midwifery services to families. I am a qualified KGHypnobithing facilitator and I can offer group classes at a local venue in locations of my clientele within Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas or private 1~1 sessions in the comfort in your own home, running at a relaxing pace.
You may wonder why.....
I became a midwife after having my 3 precious Children and as I soon found out what was good/poor care. I wanted to be ‘with woman’ providing exceptional care and compassion, while sharing the most exciting, but daunting at times, journey into motherhood and parenting with them; being their strong approachable advocate endeavouring to give families my very best care. My journey in wanting to become a hypnobirthing Instructor is simple, I wanted to assist women & partners wanting an additional tool to help them in pregnancy, labour & birth with feeling calm & confident in achieving the type of labour they wanted with positive results. I provide my education for you with common sense, humour and mixed teaching concepts which is adapted to any type of learner you are, while also explaining the ‘whys‘ of how things work. I believe this helps you understand why you are doing the things that is required easier.
Where you can find me.....
I am a Midwife working privately within my community to support women and families through pregnancy, birth and postnatal time.
I have a passion to ensure women have care and education which is centred around them and their specific needs. I endeavour to provide this with kindness, enthusiasm and with a sprinkling of humour!
I am a KGH qualified and fully insured hypnobirthing teacher based in Yaxley, serving Peterborough and the surrounding areas. I am passionate about empowering couples to take control of their own birth experience, through teaching the process of childbirth and instilling confidence. I offer one to one classes in the comfort of your own home. Please visit the Confident Birth webiste for more information.
My husband and 2 teenage daughters have lived in the growing community of Cambourne for the last 17 years. I began training 13 years ago with the NCT to become a fully qualified antental and postnatal facilitator. I run courses in and around Cambridge weekly and have good links with the local hospital and am involved in the local Maternity voices committees.
Along side this, I have worked as a birth and postnatal doula for 10 years, supporting many families through pregnancy birth and their early parenting experiences; trained wtih BabyCalm and the school of Babywearing and have completed lots of online learning modules with the University of Warwick.
I am keen and excited to be running hypnobirthing sessions to offer parents a more comprehensive and postitive pregnancy and birth experience.
Having grown up in a large family, as the middle child of nine, I scarcely recall a time when I wasn’t surrounded by babies or pregnant women. It seemed natural for me to follow suit. I started my family young and was blessed with five children, and now a brood of wonderful grand-children.
I always knew that I wanted to be a midwife. However, when I left school, it was routine to train as a nurse before specialising in midwifery. For many years I balanced a career in nursing with bringing up my children. In due course, with support from my kind, patient and supportive husband and my then teenage children, I qualified a with a degree in midwifery in 2007.
Becoming a midwife has been the best choice I ever made.
For the last ten years I have worked in a busy maternity unit in Huntingdon. I currently manage a large community caseload with regular shifts on the labour ward. I am fortunate enough to have been present for the birth of hundreds of babies, with each woman’s birth story being unique.
I support women throughout their pregnancy and see them at home with their new baby afterwards. Ensuring women and their partners are well prepared for labour, giving birth and beyond is an invaluable and enjoyable part of my job.
My name is Amy and I love all things to do with antenatal care and babiesI am a qualified nurse who has an ambitious passion for supporting other mums and expectant mothers. I was introduced into the Hypnobirthing world when I had my daughter, and knew straight away that it was something I definitely wanted to be involved in. Throughout what turned out to be a challenging pregnancy with her, I found myself seeking to make the most of every opportunity I had. As it turned out, it was the least traumatic and most euphoric experience I could have wished for! I want to bring this to other women, and share my love for Hypnobirthing! I want to help you have the best experience you can possibly have on the day.
I am on the border of Norfolk, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire, and also visit Chelmsford, Essex on a regular basis so am able to broaden my horizons when teaching.
I have been a nurse and midwife for over 40 years making the move into education 5 years ago. I am currently a senior lecturer in midiwfery at Anglia Ruskin University and still work clinically as a midiwfe at Peterborough City hospital. I have been passionate about the promotion of normal birth my whole working life and was instrumental in creating the midiwfe led unit at Peterborough with a fellow midwife. Whilst it won't promise you a perfect birth KGH offers strategies that can help empower women and their families to take control of their pregnancy, labour and birth.Within hypnobirthing there are many techniques and strategies that are equally useful for dealing with the stresses and strains of everyday life. My other great passion is holistic therapies. When not working I have my own buisness which offers a wide variety of treaments from massage to bridal hair and make up.
