Firstly, let me congratulate you on your pregnancy and say that I'm thrilled that you are considering taking a course in Hypnobirthing!

I am a Mama of two small boys and I live with my husband in Chandlers Ford, a small town located between Southampton and Winchester. For most of my adult life I have been an Onboard Manager for a long haul airline but after having my children, I decided to leave the travel industry and concentrate on my Hypnobirthing teaching business.

I practiced Hypnobirthing during both of my pregnancies and I had two very different but very positive births. Hypnobirthing changed everything for me. My whole belief system about childbirth, how strong I was, what I knew about my body and what it was capable of and also what a mechanised and medicalised system we live in where we actively condition women to believe they cannot give birth without medical intervention. It was a revelation. And like many women who have experienced the power of Hypnobirthing, I wanted to bring this message to as many other women as I could.

In addition to being a KG Hypnobirthing teacher, I’m a certified life coach and NLP Practitioner. NLP is all about understanding how our experiences in life get processed and stored within our subconscious and are the basis of all of our beliefs, thoughts and behaviours. NLP is hugely powerful in unearthing and tackling deep rooted beliefs that limit us and this is so relevant for pregnancy and childbirth. KG Hypnobirthing focusses on letting go of fear, assumptions and preconceptions about pregnancy and birth and replaces them with information and confidence. Shifting the idea that birth is something you ‘do’ and helping you understand that you can simply let go and allow your body to do what it is designed to do. The tools and techniques of NLP complement this beautifully.


At the start of my first pregnancy I had all the usual fears about childbirth. The girls in my family are all petite and, thanks to stories shared by my mum, I was so scared of the pain of birth and of tearing. But I remember the exact moment my thoughts and fears about childbirth changed - it was the point in the KG Hypnobirthing course when I learned what the muscles in the uterus are actually trying to do during labour and what it is that can make this painful verses really quite comfortable. Once I understood this and realised that, left to run it’s natural course, your body has got this process sorted, my focus shifted entirely. I stopped worrying about the pain and began enjoying the process of looking after myself, learning to relax and just taking things as they came. My birth was really quite lovely - I laboured at home, then travelled to my local birthing centre, had a natural birth in the pool and afterwards enjoyed a wonderful night snuggled up with my husband and baby boy. No drugs, no drama, and no tearing.

Hello, my name's Marina! Because I had a lot of fear around birth, I did a hypnobirthing course to prepare for the birth of my son. I had an amazing, positive birth experience that afterwards made me feel so empowered! I was shocked that it's not talked about in our society, that birth can be magical and empowering, and felt called to help other women experience birth in the way that I had. I would love to help you!

Running a busy home with two children, my partner and work as a Doula and Hypnobirthing Instructor, it can sometimes be tricky to balance life. I often find in these moments that I make myself take some “me time”  and put to use the fantastic hypnobirthing techniques that I was taught by Katharine.
I very quickly remember how to slow everything down and gain perspective. Often I find my mind wandering to the women I am working with and I feel ….energised ….inspired ….in awe ….full of expectation ….and confident in our and their ability......then its game on!

I am hugely blessed to live in rural Wiltshire with my husband Owen, and our daughter Isabel. We have a dog, a pony, ducks and a front hall full of muddy wellies. My background is in the outdoors and therapy. Originally I trained as a horticultural therapist, before moving in to the field of equine assisted therapy.

Currently I am a full time Mum. I support my wonderful husband, enjoying raising our daughter, and try to keep the house tidyish and the garden weed free. This is a big surprise to me having previously been focused and career driven! 

We had a lovely straight forward homebirth with Isabel. My full birth story is on my website in case it is of interest to you. Please be reassured KGHypnobirthing is relevant and useful in every birthing situation. We had a beautiful homebirth, if you are planning a beautiful C Section or a beautiful hospital birth KGHypnobirthing is still totally relevant to you.

My dream is to see women empowered to have the birth of their dreams. It can feel like an uphill struggle, I am here to support you.

In 2007, I gave birth to my daughter using Hypnobirthing following my own course with the inspirational Katharine Graves herself.  It was my own life-changing, positive birth experience then which led me to change career direction and bring the benenfits of Hypnobirthing to Bournemouth.

In 2010, as well as passing my hypnotherapy diploma with distinction, I qualified to teach Hypnobirthing.  I haven't looked back since then and love helping expectant parents on their journey to calm labour and birth for themselves and their babies.

The idea for bump & glide came about after the realisation that there is so much care and support out there for babies but nowhere near enough for mothers.

After having my two children, who are eighteen months apart, I realised that there's a whole group of people out there who just aren't getting the care and support they need at a time when they need it most: Mothers-to-be and Mothers.

Carrying and growing a baby, giving birth, then caring for that gorgeous but demanding little human 24/7, takes time, energy and resources from the mother. Time, energy and resources which need to be replenished, and yet society today wrongly portrays that the most important thing after having a baby is to 'shift that baby weight', 'get back into those skinny jeans' and to just well, 'get on with it'. 

I became a mother for the first time just over 4 years ago now and practised KGhypnobirthing techniques during both my first and subsequent labour, but following the birth of my first child, I felt let down by the support I received. KGHypnobirthing allowed me, and my husband, to know what to expect in terms of our choices, our rights and various techniques to use during labour, and hand on heart, I can't imagine how it would have been without having had this knowledge. However, I had that feeling of 'I wish someone had told me...' and 'Why didn't anyone check this before..',in the weeks and months that followed.

I have been amazed, confused, upset and frustrated about the fact that women are being let down. My strongest emotion now though is passion. I am, and have always been, passionate about people, helping people and I'm now dedicated to hopefully making a difference to how women experience their entrance into motherhood, a story which should have a better first chapter for us all.

Let's continue to help each other and make a difference where we can.

Warmest wishes,

Serena x

I have had many roles within my adult life, including carer and bus driver! For the last 3 years I have been working within Information Governance and Data Protection within the NHS. After the birth of my son I completely and whole heartedly knew that I needed to train to be a KGHypnobirthing teacher.
