I have experienced all types of births during my role as a Doula. I have witnessed and heard of wonderful birth experiences that have left the new parents elated, proud and empowered.

I have also heard of and encountered a few negative birth experiences, one of which was my own caesarean birth 25 years ago.

I want all families to feel that their birth was a positive one, whatever journey it took,  however it unfolded, and in whatever environment it happened.

I discovered Hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my son and it absolutely changed my life. It allowed me to embrace pregnancy and look forward to giving birth which is something I had always feared. I was so inspired by the concept that I felt it was my calling to pass on the knowledge to other women so they could too experience an empowering birth. It is a dream come true to be able to share this journey with others and an absolute privilege to teach KGHypnobirthing at Meraki Mamas. I can't wait to meet you and your birth partner and introduce you to the magic of KGHypnobirthing!

Hi there, I'm Charlotte. I am a qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher, yoga teacher in training and founder of Baía Rituals - a brand dedicated to encouraging soulful living throughout every aspect of life.

I am Mum to Indio and Calia, both born at home calmly and I have Hypnobirthing to thank for that. I can quite honestly say - Hypnobirthing changed my life!

Hypnobirthing didn't just give me two wonderful birth experiences, it completely changed my life. It opened my eyes to the power of the mind, the body and the soul, and during pregnancy and after birth I started exploring practices that aligned with this way of thinking. I now practice yoga regularly and meditate to maintain a balanced and grounded life, but ultimately it's all about a frame of mind.

"Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change" - John Assaraf

The KGH method not only equips you perfectly to have the most wonderful, calm, relaxed birth experience, but the techniques and lessons learnt throughout the course transfer into life after birth and will ease you into parenthood and beyond beautifully.

Being pregnant and giving birth is such a precious time in your life, a time that should be cherished, enjoyed and experienced with positivity and wonder.

I would be honoured to provide you with the amazing KG Hypnobirthing course so you and your partner feel calm, prepared and excited about the birth of your baby.

I offer private classes (1:1 or a group of friends) and group classes online and in person. I cover the whole of Essex including Chelsmford, Braintree, Billericay, Ingatestone, Brentwood, Maldon, Ongar, Bishop's Stortford, Wickford, Witham, Halstead. And I also run private classes in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

I am a mum to two gorgeous girls, wife to my lovely husband and before training to become a hypnobirthing teacher I worked as a Marketing Manager. Hypnobirthing truly changed my life. I always imagined I'd be unable to cope when I was giving birth, that it would be a terrible, painful experience - this is what lead me to hypnobirthing. I wanted to take control of the only thing I could - my mind! Both of my labours were incredible, both were calm and relaxed and two of the best experiences of my life. Having these experiences made me want to help others achieve the same. It is so rewarding and enjoyable teaching my lovely couples and helping them on their journey to what is their ideal birth.

 I am available to teach throughout Southend and Essex.

My name is Charlotte and I am a practicing midwife, KGH hypnobirthing teacher and a proud mum of one hypnobirthed baby. I have years of experience as a midwife and have had the pleasure to be at many different types of birth during my career so far. I have seen how hypnobirthing can help women feel prepared and in control during their pregnancy and go into their labour and birth with a positive mind set. I am passionate about pregnancy, birth and parenthood and believe that antenatal preparation is vitally important. I feel privileged to be able to teach women and their birth partner the techniques of KGH hypnobirthing to enable them to have the birth they want. I experienced personally how powerful hypnobirthing can be when I gave birth to my own baby and I want you to feel the same!

I'm Verity, a KGHypnobirthing teacher, Birth & Postnatal Doula working in Essex, Herts and North London. I am also a proud mum of one.

Hypnobirthing allowed me to have a calm, confident and empowered birth through mindfulness and relaxation. Like many newly pregnant women I was fearful of birth and was very anxious through the first half of my pregnancy. After practising Hypnobirthing I was surprised to find that as my due date approached I was completely relaxed and calmly excited at the thought of giving birth.

Giving birth was the most empowering experience of my life. I was left in awe of the process of birth and what our bodies can achieve. When I started to meet other new parents I slowly discovered how important our birthing experiences are to us. I heard many mothers describe the impact their negative experiences had on them and their partners and how this had affected the first precious days, weeks and even months with their baby.

I had taken my positive experience for granted as I realised that my birth wasn’t just one amazing day to look back on with fond memories, it moulded me as a mother.

I decided to become a Hypnobirthing teacher and Doula because I am passionate about helping parents to feel in control of the birth of their baby no matter what direction it may take, to guide them in making informed decisions about their birth preferences, and ultimately give them the best possible start to life with their new baby. 

I provide group and 1-2-1 KGHynobirthing classes in Harlow, Sawbridgeworth and surrounding areas. I also offer a Birth Doula with KGHypnobirthing package.

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 am a newly qualified KG Hypnbirthing practitioner. Having completed a Diploma in Hypnotherapy, I discovered the powerful impact of Hypnobirthing and just knew it would be something I would love to practise. I then completed by teaching course and have loved expanding my knowledge, supporting couples and bringing my knowledge of Hypnotherapy into the pre-natal world.

Hi. I'm Verity, a lawyer, birth aficionado and mum of two boys (and therefore proud owner of a terrifying number of toy cars, trains, tractors and diggers...)

After a difficult birth with my first baby, I did a hypnobirthing course and had an absolutely magical homebirth with baby number two with no pain relief apart from a birthing pool and a bit of swearing at my husband. And all this was despite being an absolute cynic and having a hefty 9lb 1 baby. 

Before having children my take on giving birth was pretty accurately summed up by Miranda from Sex and the City: "When this gets going, don't let anyone get all cheerleadery on me. I don't want any of that, you can do it, push push" And actually I still have that view as with hypnobirthing YOU are your own cheerleader and doing a hypnobirthing course will equip you with all the tools you need to know that you CAN do it (without any overzealous support from the sidelines). 

I consider it an immense privilege to empower women to have the best birth possible for them. 

So if you want a no-nonsense course which gives you and your birth partner the facts about birth and the options open to you and think that I would be a good fit for you then get in touch. (And if your birth partner needs any encouragement then the good news is that the course I run from my home is only 150 yards from a pub...) 

I cover the North Essex/Suffolk region including:

  • Sudbury
  • Halstead
  • Braintree
  • Haverhill
  • Witham
  • Bury St Edmunds

Through my own birth experiences (an emergency caesarean, a planned caesarean, and a home water birth) and the births I have attended as a doula, I am constantly amazed by the intricacy of the human body, and how well and how delicately nature contrives what’s best for us and our babies, when we give it a chance. My goal is to ensure this perfect choreography, this dance of the hormones, which enables birth to proceed optimally, is protected and preserved. Hypnobirthing is a great tool to achieve this.
