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!

Hello - my name is Hannah and I run Harmony Hypnobirthing. I am a fully qualified hypnobirthing teacher having trained with the Royal College of Midwives accredited KG Hypnobirthing course. My group classes take place in the centre of Chester, and I offer private sessions across Cheshire. I can be flexible on venues, dates and timings.
I'm really excited about meeting lots of new mums-to-be and helping you to feel excited about welcoming your baby into the world!
Are you hoping for a calm, comfortable and more enjoyable birth? Do you want to feel more in control of the birth of your baby?
Whatever kind of birth you’re planning – home birth, hospital, birthing centre – I can help.
I have a degree in English Literature and work as a publicist. I have over a decade’s worth of knowledge and experience in how words and language can be incredibly powerful tools in creating positive messages – a vital tool for hypnobirthing.
In 2016, while pregnant with my first child, I came across hypnobirthing. I was nervous about giving birth, having heard a lot of negative stories from relatives and friends, and was keen to try anything that might help. I loved hypnobirthing - it was incredibly relaxing, helped me to sleep well during the latter stages of pregnancy, and made me feel really excited about having my baby. Everything it taught made complete sense, and no part of it felt odd or strange. It also made a real difference for me on the day my daughter arrived.
I became a fully qualified hypnobirthing teacher in 2017, training with the Royal College of Midwives accredited KG Hypnobirthing programme. KG Hypnobirthing is the original UK Hypnobirthing course, which is designed especially for mothers in the UK. The course is constantly evolving to keep up-to-date with the latest evidence and research.
I have been a qualified midwife for 10years now and have worked in all areas of midwifery including hospital, community, teaching in Universities. I am also a qualified lecturer in Midwifery and have a PGcert qualification. I especailly love the promotion of normality and hypnobirthing adds another dimension to deliver a relaxed enviornment to deliver your baby. I would love to share this knowledge with you as parents to be to aid you to achieve the birth experience that you want.

Hello my name is Kate and I live in Macclesfield with my husband and son. If you have found out that you are pregnant then wow congratulations go to you and your family. By way of introduction below is a snapshot of my professional qualifications and working experiences.
I am a qualified professional Hypnotherapist and Counsellor (Dip Hyp CS) and registered as a Professional Member (MHS) with the National Hypnotherapy Society. I am a fully qualified Hypnobirthing teacher using the Katharine Graves KG Method. My KG teacher training diploma DipHB (KG) is fully accredited by the Hypnobirthing Association and The Royal College of Midwives (RCM). I am also a qualified Reiki practitioner.
The majority of my working life was spent in the public sector as a supervisor and latterly as a qualified trainer and facilitator. Having become a qualified hypnotherapist helping clients to overcome all manner of everyday problems, including anxiety and phobias, I was introduced to the benefits of Hypnobirthing via friend`s and pregnant work colleagues. Hypnobirthing was not around at the time I had my children so I was immediately impressed and exited by the positive experiences that Hypnobirthing gives to new parents. Having trained in the KG method and helped couples on the childbirth journey I am convinced that this empowering knowledge is a gift that all should enjoy.
I am a qualified midwife with over 11 years experience working in the NHS. I have spent the last 7 years working in the antenatal clinic, caring for women throughout their pregnancies.
I live in the Stockport area and I am a wife to Paul and mummy to William and Poppy.
Hello, my name is Carole and I have been trained to teach the Katherine Graves method of Hynobirthing. I am a practicing midwife and qualified complementary therapist. I am employed part time within the NHS as a midwife, working at the local birth centre and I run my business Optimum Birthing, which provides complementary therapies for pregnant mums. I feel very privileged to be able to accompany women and their partners through the final part of their childbirth journey. For me, to be part of that special moment when they finally meet their baby for the first time is truly magical. I live with my husband Chris in Macclesfield, our two grown up children have flown the nest and set up homes of their own nearby. I really wish that hypnobirthing had been around at the time of their births, as I know that I would have loved hypnobirthing my babies.
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.
