Hypnobirthing Cheshire - Teachers' Directory
Nanette Lyon, Mum and Hypnobirthing teacher, pleased to meet you. So a little about me. When I first found out I was pregnant I began a roller-coaster journey of emotions.... excitement , happiness, nervousness, and fear. Oh my, I actually have to have this baby! I can't give birth. I can't even watch an episode of Casualty , how on earth can I give birth? Oh and everyone says how painful it is, plus I watched "One Born every Minute" way too much!
I did my research and came across "hypnobirthing". Hmm....I thought. I can see how this may work and much to the sceptisism of my husband who thought I had completely gone "baby brain ga ga", I started my hypnobirthing journey.
I have never looked back! I arrived at hospital at 9am, expecting to be induced. By 11.17 I was holding my beautiful daughter Penelope in my arms. No induction,no gas/air and no drugs required. Much to my husband's surprise not even a raised voice, swear word or scream! He was converted there and then and is now my biggest advocate, "it works!" I heard him say , "it just works, I saw it!"
At the time the Midwives admitted I had taken them by complete surprise, saying they had no idea that I would give birth so calmly, relaxed and quickly.
My "secret weapon" I called it.... "Hypnobirthing". I had practiced and I was in the zone, mentally, "I can do this, I am designed to do this, I have got this". Honestly afterwards, I had to question what all the fuss is about with childbirth!
I want to share my experience with all women to show we really shouldn't fear birth. I think the information I teach to parents is invaluable, there is something that stops us questioning maternity procedures and there is no reason why this should be.
Having been an English & Media teacher in a senior school, I have a passion for teaching. I fully understand the power of words and being an avid yoga fan , I fully appreciate the state of the mind and relaxation.
With this passion to teach and share hypnobirthing it was destiny that I would retrain and open Lyoness Hynobirthing.
I look forward to meeting you!

Hi, I'm Steph. Midwife, mother to 3 beautiful boys, hypnobirthing practitioner and all-round birth nerd.
My love for all things birthing came long before I started my midwifery degree. I come from a strong family background of midwives and nurses. From a very young age I remember thinking "wow, a woman's body can do that!!". My flame for 'birth' was ignited and it only grew stronger.
I am so excited to share all of my knowledge and experience with you. I passionately believe that your birth experience matters. Whether that be at home, hospital or theatre birth. So if you are ready to feel empowered and in control of your birth, I would love to hear from you.
Hi, I'm Amy Rooney (DipHb(KGH)), founder of Empowered Mama Birthing. My mission is to provide birth preparation classes suitable for ALL WOMEN so that however they give birth they do so feeling empowered and positive.
I'ma mummy to two hypnobirth babies - a crazy flame haired toddler and a very chilled baby. I first came across hypnobirthing whilst pregnant with my eldest. My first reaction was that I wasn't the right type of person for hypnobirthing... I was a fast paced corporate lawyer with lists coming out of my ears, surely I'd need to be more hippy and chilled to hypnobirth successfully?
Despite my initial naivety (and stereotyping!) I quickly learned that hypnobirthing was so much more than a bunch of relaxation techniques and that it was applicable to everyone and so beneficial. I went on to have two amazing (but very different) hypnobirth experiences. My passion for all things hypnobirthing was ignited and I haven't looked back.
I love helping parents to prepare for their birth experience.
Originally trained as a Registered General Nurse in Scotland, home of my birth! Continued training to become a Registered Midwife and worked both in the UK and in Saudi Arabia.
I am a mum of 3 boys who teaches KG Hypnobirthing, pregnancy yoga, and mum and baby postnatal yoga. I also teach adult yoga and meditation.
I first started as a birth worker after the birth of my sons in the late 1990s. KGHypnobirthing wasn't around then, but through education and relaxation, I had some really wonderful experiences of birth. And since then I have been passionate about helping couples to find their way through the maze of appointments and hospital protocols to help them also have an amazing birth, to find their power, their knowledge and their confidence.
My name is Laura and I'm a mum to a very energetic little boy. Originally from Glasgow, I now live in Cuddington with my husband and son.
After my own birth I decided I wanted to become a birth worker to advocate for mothers and help them to have the best birth experience possible.
Unfortunately I didn't know much about hypnobirthing until after my own birth experience. I fully believe my son's birth would have been a positive and happy experience if I had been a hypnobirthing mum rather than a traumatic one.
Now I am extremely happy and proud to call this my job and I can't wait to support lots of future mums in having a calm, positive and happy birth.
I had my first child in 1998, at the time there wasn’t even waterbirth on offer let alone hypnobirthing. However my parents always spoke about birth as such a positive and exciting experience. My mum was always telling me how she didn’t recall any pain. So I went into labour relaxed and not fearing it. I had Jack at the local birthing centre, in 4 hours. In 2000 I had a fantastic home birth with Libby. Then in 2010 I had a wonderful waterbirth with Charlotte, even though she was born back to back. I totally believe, both as a mother and a midwife, that being relaxed and having confidence in your body makes the most difference to your birthing experience.
As a midwife I am highly motivated and dedicated to promoting normality and women/family centred care. I have been heavily involved with the homebirth support group and promoting waterbirth and I'm also a Reiki II practitioner.
I qualified as a midwife in 2007, during my training I won a valedictory award for “Excellence in clinical practice” and in 2009 I received 2 nominations for midwife of the year.
I am passionate about empowering women and their partners so they feel confident and in control, not only through labour but in the transition to becoming a parent.

Why Choose a Hypnobirth?
Hypnobirthing is a recognised method of natural childbirth which promotes a far more calm birthing through the teaching of hypnosis techniques to relax the mother. This reduces the likelihood of intervention through pain relief and also results in a more relaxed, less stressed, baby.
All of the teachers have trained in an RCM accredited KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training and have been assessed prior to receiving accreditation from us, to ensure they meet the highest standards we demand of all our practitioners. This ensures they are highly experienced in teaching hypnobirthing methods to expectant mothers, so you can feel you are in very safe hands.
