Hypnobirthing Cheshire - Teachers' Directory
I became a midwife 18 years ago after hearing stories about friends and families births, and hearing women report that the experience could have been better if they knew more and were able to have options about their care. This was startling as I imagined that it would be crucial to offer support and information at such an important time in the life of a new family. I trained at University of Chester and worked at the Countess of Chester Hospital (where I was born!) for 16 years where I have been blessed in my career to work with so many fabulous midwives and to have of looked after hundreds of lovely families from the Chester area. I initially worked in the hospital and then after my daughter was born (I used hypnobirthing when I birthed!) I transfered to work at as a community midwife, which was amazing as I had a feeling of truly knowing the women in my care, but working part time and on set patterns of work I rarely cared for women that I knew in labour and this was the icing on the cake for me as a midwife. As continuity felt so rewarding and a better way to provide care, I left the NHS team to join the private commissioned service of One to One Midwives locally where I thrived in being able to provide the care in a different and more personal way. After several years I have needed to reduce my hours for family reasons and have left caseloading midwifery for the time being, instead focusing on the teaching of antenatal education and hypnobirthing via Confident Birth Chester.
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’m Kat former 121 mother and midwife assitant, currently working in the NHS supporting the health visitors teams.
I have 3 children, personally had 2 home births and used kg hypnobirthing 3rd time around after being part of such wonderful outcomes at work. I fully believe In the power the mind has on us and that we need to take time for self care. Education is a passion of mine along with women centred care. Parenting is hard work and amazing all at the same time. I have many years breastfeeding support and parenting support and want to keep using these skills to support and empower more families.

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.
