Hypnobirthing Devon - Teachers' Directory
I am passionate about helping you to have the best birth possible and I bring to the classes a long and wide experience in the world of pregnancy and birth.
Before training as a KG Hypnobirthing teacher with Katharine herself I was already a fully qualified, registered and practising hypnotherapist. I chose her method because it stood out from all the others.
After giving birth to my first child I trained as an antenatal teacher and taught for the National Childbirth Trust for seven years before qualifying as a professional registered homeopath. As a homeopath I’ve attended a number of births over the years, at home, in hospital, in and out of water as well as giving birth to my own two children. I was also commissioned to write a distance learning course on using Homeopathy during pregnancy and labour.
So as you can see I have a wealth of knowledge and experience of birth both as a hypnotherapist, through my work as a homeopath and as a teacher and mother in my own right and I bring all this to my classes.
I like to make my classes fun and informative as well as giving you all the tools you need to give birth with confidence, calmly and comfortably.
Hi, I'm Nicky. I am a midwife and I have been teaching hypnobirthing since 2008.
My hypnobirthing inspiration came when I was a midwife looking after women who were using hypnobirthing. Their births were so calm that I felt I had to find out more. I have now taught the program to many couples and also been priviledged enough to be present when their gorgeous babies came peacefully into the world. I am lucky to have seen hypnobirthing in action and I know it makes a difference.

My own pregnancy 16 years ago (I was aged 26) was all it took to inspire me to become a Midwife and then a Hypnobirthing teacher. Prior to this my background was in Complementary Health Practice. After qualifying in Midwifery, I was fortunate enough to work at The Birth Centre Ltd., Professor Caroline Flint's well known establishment. Here the vast majority of our clients were hypnobirthing. There were vast differences between these women’s labours and those I had looked after within the NHS. I immediately realised that the benefits of Hypnobirthing had a strong ripple effect, extending to the Midwife! Coming back from a hypnobirth, I would feel relaxed and refreshed thanks to being in such a positively peaceful atmosphere. I cannot imagine a more fulfilling career than supporting clients / couples and their babies through what is undoubtedly the most important time in their lives. I am very proud to have been trained by Katherine Graves herself and to be continually inspired by the birth experiences of my personal clients. I appreciate the intimacy of life. My passion is to gently facilitate the human experience in ways that point directly to wholeness, or true nature. Hypnobirthing does this very effectively.
My name is Olivia and I am currently a Registered Midwife, living in Devon. Having seen how effective hypnobirthing techniques are in creating such a calm and serene birth experience for women and their partners, I was inspired to find out more and so enrolled on the KG Hypnobirthing Teachers Training Course. I successfully obtained a Hypnobirthing Diploma, accredited by the Royal College of Midwives, which provided an enlightening experience and supplied me with the necessary expertise to begin teaching hypnobirthing to women and their partners.
Welcome to GOODBIRTH KGHypnobirthing. Having the right support and finding up to date practical information through your pregnancy, will help you feel more relaxed and prepared for your birth. As a Doula, a former Midwife and a qualified Nursery Nurse I have over 25 years experience working with families and supporting births. GOODBIRTH aims to ensure that ALL parents feel safe, respected, informed and in control, wherever and whatever their circumstances. Everyone has different needs, and a private course can be individual to you, answering your personal concerns and focusing on your birth preferences.
I was privileged to attend a course at The Farm Midwifery Centre in Tennessee, USA, with the acclaimed midwife and author Ina May Gaskin and her colleagues. What I learned there shaped my Midwifery practice and continues to influence my practice as a Doula and Hypnobirthing teacher. I have complete respect for and belief in a woman’s ability to give birth naturally without intervention. If a pregnancy or labour takes a different path, and a woman does require obstetric care, Hypnobirthing will help them to feel confident and in control of their choices.
I have worked in NHS trusts and Birth Centres, with experience in homebirths, water births, births on the labour ward and in Theatre. I support pregnancies under obstetric care, including VBAC (vaginal birth after Caesarean), IVF pregnancies, multiple births, and any medical concerns.
I am a Mum of three grown up daughters and was delighted to support my eldest daughter at the births of both her babies! I am a proud Nana! This has also deepened my understanding of the needs of new parents. I chose to leave Midwifery to focus on giving true one to one care as Doula. I trained with Nurturing Birth and am a recognised Birth Doula registered with Doula UK.
As your Hypnobirthing Teacher and/or Doula I can offer non biased, non medical, practical and emotional support. Please visit my website to find out more about my services.

I trained with KG Hypnobirthing in February 2018. My interest sparked when I provided care for a woman, during my midwifery training, who was birthing using the KGH techniques. I then completed my KGH training to become a teacher myself.
I then qualified as a midwife in September 2018 and have since supported many women giving birth using hypnobirthing techniques. I am excited to hear from you!
