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.
As well as being a KGHypnobirthing teacher I am also a mother, midwife and massage therapist.
I am passionate about helping women and their partners have a positive and empowering transition to motherhood.
I facilitate monthly Positive Birth Movement meetings in my home - all welcome. https://www.facebook.com/ThePositiveBirthMovementSouthEastEssex/
I also offer the 3 step rewind for birth trauma for healing past births
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.
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:
- Bury St Edmunds
