Hypnobirthing Cheshire - Teachers' Directory
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.
In 2007 I began to look at options to support women in labour. I completed a hypnobirthing practitioner course which enabled me to see the benefits of relaxation on the way in which women give birth. Following on from my training I became a registered midwife with a keen interest in supporting normality. During my midwifery training I received a valedictory award for excellence in clinical practice which reflected my passion for supporting women and their birth partners through the life changing experience of labour and beyond. In 2008 I got to use the hypnobirthing methods first hand with the birth of my son. The immense feeling of elation and empowerment I felt after the birth made me even more determined to share my experience with other women to allow them to have the best possible birth experience. Leading on from Hypnobirthing I began to look at other methods of supporting normality and completed a training program to use moxibustion, aromatherapy and massage in pregnancy. As well as teaching hypnobirthing I have also undertaken a training to offer professional hypnotherapy for a variety of phobias and addictions including smoking cessation and healthy lifestyle choices. I enjoy seeing women and their partners actually look forward to the birth of their baby and feel blessed in my role to support them.
Hello, my name is Carole and I have been trained to teach the Katherine Graves method of Hynobirthing. I am an experience midwife and qualified complementary therapist. I work occasional shifts as a midwife at the local birth centre and I run my business Optimum Birthing. I teach Hypnobirthing and provide 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. 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 am a qualified midwife with over 13 years experience working in the NHS. My current role is as a Practice Based Educator for Maternity.
I live in the Stockport area and I am a wife to Paul and mummy to William and Poppy.

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!

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.
