Hypnobirthing Essex - Teachers' Directory
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.
Trudy Glenister, Life Coach – As an established Clinical Hypnotherapist, it is my business to reduce stress and fear where people are not coping. As a KGHypnobirthing Teacher, it is my pleasure to offer to Mothers and their chosen partner all the support they require on a true journey of a lifetime.
For over 24 years I have had the privilege of working with many women, supporting them through conception, pregnancy and in a post-natal capacity. I have also worked with new mothers and their babies immediately after their births. I am so excited to now be able to teach KGHypnobirthing, I know that the knowledge and information that unfolds during the course will be invaluable to the parents and to the baby. The skills they learn will enable them to have the most empowering birth and the effects of the course will continue to blossom through their relationship and the rest of their lives. I am a fully qualified Cranio Sacral Therapist, Reflexologist, Aromatherapist, Shiatsu Practitioner and KGHypnobirthing Teacher. I have three grown up children. I am empathetic have a great sense of humour and am a home maker too.
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
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.
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
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!
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 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.
