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.
In my opinion, completing a Hypnobirthing course is the most valuable preparation a mother and her partner can undertake in preparation for the birth of their child. Of course, it helps to have bought a moses basket and a nappy or two (!) but giving you and your baby the best possible birth experience is by far the most important thing.
Hypnobirthing is simply about educating parents about the mechanics of birth and enabling them to prepare their mind and body for this experience. The course is a full antenatal course so no other classes will be necessary. You will learn deep relaxation techniques, massage and the correct way to breathe. This will help you birth your baby comfortably and with confidence giving you the tools to have a calm birth whereby intervention and birthing drugs are unlikely to be needed.
Hypnobirthing will give you confidence and greatly reduce any fear you may have of giving birth. Your body is perfectly designed to birth a baby and you are more than capable of achieving this amazing thing.
'During our maternity classes with the local NHS centre they spoke about different forms of pain relief (and just brushed over Hypnobirthing). After an internet search for Hypnobirthing, it seemed a fabulous alternative to conventional pain relief. With Hypnobirthing the onus is put back onto natural childbirth – it is after all what women are designed for.
Linda was amazing in her relaxed teaching method, with any questions answered (however stupid!). As part of this process it was encouraged to share any worries you have about childbirth with your partner. This gives you a beautiful feeling of sharing every aspect of the birthing experience. We opted for the one to one sessions with Linda. This is our first baby and it gives us the best start in what will be a relaxed birth. Linda should record her own relaxing scripts she really enables you to get into complete state of calm.
As Linda had both her children with different Hypnobirthing techniques, we felt that this gave us broader spectrum of teaching. As part of the course Linda goes through with the birthing partner, what their role is and how important they are to the birth. We found this greatly helped prepare us for what was to lie ahead.'

'Hypnobirthing was the best preparation I could have chosen for giving birth. The course empowered me and my husband and filled us with confidence. One of the best aspects of the experience is the unity it brings between you and your partner, giving them a valuable role too.
Although not a naturally 'relaxed' person, the course taught me how to slow down and relax at a deeper level. This was invaluable when birthing, as I knew not to tense my body but to work with it. I opted for a home water birth and needed no drugs. It was the most empowering experience of my life.
Hypnobirthing takes away the fear and puts you in control of your birth. Linda is a great teacher, and clearly so passionate about what she does. I really believe that this course is the best preparation you can undertake in your journey to becoming parents – I would recommend it to anyone.'
