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 support. Please visit my website to find out more about my services.

Goodbirth provides KGHypnobirthing courses for you (and if you have a birth partner they are encouraged to attend free of charge). These can be held in your home, or a place you feel comfortable. The course is 10-12 hours over two, three or four sessions depending on your preference. Group courses are available at my office 'The Snug' in Brixham. Please contact me for current course dates and to find out more about how hypnobirthing may help you. I look forward to hearing from you.
