Hello! My name is Linda. I am a fully qualified Hypnobirthing teacher, mum to two beautiful hypnobabies and an enthusiastic home baker.

I discovered Hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my first child, George. It completely changed my perception of giving birth and left me feeling empowered, confident and really excited at the prospect. I went on to have a fantastic home birth, in a birth pool with no pain relief needed. Hypnobirthing gave me the tools to achieve this

I have been a secondary school teacher for 9 years and absolutely love inspiring young people. After having my second child I decided to combine my teaching experience and my enthusiasm for HypnoBirthing and train to be a HypnoBirthing teacher myself. I am thrilled that my teaching has taken a new direction. Teaching women and their birth partners is so valuable as birthing your child is one of the most important events in any persons life. Teaching hynobirthing also means I get to bake as I make homemade cakes for every class – I could not be called Bun in the Oven Birthing without offering decent cakes!

I feel so privileged to have stumbled upon HypnoBirthing because it made my birthing experiences so positive. I want all women to have access to this course so they can in turn have a wonderful birth.  I run small group classes from my home in Chelmsford, Essex and am also happy to travel to your home if you and your partner would like a private course.

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 absolutely love being able to give women the tools to have a positive birth experience, and I would like to help as many expectant parents as I can. The knowledge provided in the class is excellent and the benefits to the relaxation techniques last well beyond birth, it is a skill which can help in many other aspects of life.

Hello and a warm welcome to The Hypnobirth School in Chelmsford, Essex.

I am a mother of four including twins, a practicing NHS midwife and antenatal and hypnobirthing teacher at Bump and Baby club in London. I am also a qualified massage therapist with additional training in aromatherapy for childbirth. 

I absolutely love teaching antenatal education and hypnobirthing. Good antenatal education and hypnobirthing can really encourage your journey to be more positive, more informed and for you to feel more confident about birth and parenthood.

Every mother to be deserves to enjoy their pregnancy and the birth of their baby and attending a KG hypnobirthing course really helps women to experience this.

I’m a mum of three with a background in performance. Pre-kids life consisted of auditions, occasional acting jobs and a lot of temping! I was a stay at home mum for a good chunk of my three little poppets’ lives. 2017 saw my last little one embark on school life; cue Mummy’s chance to retrain and re-enter the world of work. Teaching Hypnobirthing ticks all the boxes for me; I get to talk all things birth and positivity; I can work around my family life AND I have the pleasure of meeting and working with parents during the most beautiful and exciting time in their lives - lucky me!

I had a positive birth experience when my son was born but felt challenged in my antenatal care by an overly medicalised approach to childbirth, as well as the popular notion that childbirth is an inevitably painful experience.

I used Hypnobirthing techniques suggested to me by a friend and it was these small pieces of advice that really helped me to navigate the medical system and to have a positive birth experience.

Realising after my son’s birth how integral these techniques had been, I looked into Hypnobirthing in more detail- reading books and speaking to people about their own Hypnobirthing experiences - and realised that the techniques I had used were just the tip of the amazing iceberg that is Hypnobirthing. I was astounded by the way that the skills that Hypnobirthing provides, along with the knowledge of how the body works in childbirth, can free women from the fear often felt about childbirth, enabling them to look forward to the birth of their child and to have incredibly empowering, positive birth experiences. 

And so I knew I had to be part of it! I carried out my training with Katherine Graves and began in my mission to empower women and their partners to experience childbirth as the wonderful, natural experience it is.
