I am a very proud Mum of 4, 2 being twins

I have extensive experience working as a Nurse, Midwife and currently a Health visitor supporting families from pregnancy through birth and beyond.

I am also priviledged to be a KGHypnobirthing teacher and love empowering Mums to have confidence in their bodies and reduce the fear and anxiety that is often associated with pregnancy and birth

 

I believe in the natural process of labour and birth and think that the KGH method provides a fantastic structure and set of tools to explain this to parents to be. I have over 30 years of experience, working as a nurse, midwife and health visitor combined and I draw on this knowledge along with my  skills gained through KGH so that I can help empower women to have their optimal birthing experience. I love working with women and feel honoured to be working within this field. I feel really passionate that women are given the choices they deserve. I pride myself in the relationships I form to ensure they are supportive and non-judgmental.

I also love teaching yoga, specialising in pregnancy, postnatal and Mum and Baby yoga

Hi, I am Kirsty and I am a fully qualified and insured KG Hypnobirthing teacher, Breastfeeding Peer Supporter and before having lots of children, a Primary Teacher.  

For the last 11 years I have been passionate about supporting mothers, working to develop my knowledge and skills in how I may do this.  Hypnobirthing became a big part of my pregnancy with my third child and the skills I attained accompany me and my family even now.  Interestingly, my third child was the most relaxed baby! My experience in volunteering across the NCT, the NHS and running my own new mums group shows just how passionate I am and how much I enjoy supporting new mums and mums-to-be!  With first-hand experience about how hypnobirthing can affect attitude, choices and feelings about birth, I decided to extend my teaching career into hypnobirthing and I love it! 

Gaining a diploma in KGHypnobirthing has enabled me to set up BreatheBirth, running classess for groups and couples privately.  I am now able to support you and your birth parter, for a positive, comfortable and empowering birth experience.  As a qualified Breastfeeding Peer Supporter, I can support you on your postnatal feeding journey if you require it.

My name is Louise, I am a mother to my daughter, Ottilie, full time member of the Royal Air Force and founder of Birth Calmly Hypnobirthing. I am also a certified Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing practitioner, a qualification which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.

I always knew I wanted to be a Mum, and so to find out I was expecting our little bundle of joy in January 2018 was truly magical. I had a wonderful pregnancy and was really excited at the prospect of becoming a mother for the first time, however it was during my pregnancy that I was told many negative birth stories which left me feeling anxious and scared.

I recall very early on in my first trimester that a family friend described the birth of her children as the most ‘empowering experience’ of her life, and it was at that moment where I really started to invest in myself and discovered hypnobirthing. The more I read about it, the more I wanted to try it, and so in my second trimester my husband and I embarked on our hypnobirthing journey together.

We attended a 1:1 private session and at first, were both very sceptical, doubting that it would work, however I soon realised that it was entirely logical. To have my husband with me during the course and experiencing it together, meant we could prepare as best we could for the impending arrival of our baby. His dedication and unwavering support throughout the rest of my pregnancy and during labour was vital and really did make my birth experience so much more empowering, something which I will forever cherish.

If like me, you know what you want from your birth experience – to feel calm, positive, and supported, to minimise the chance of any medical interventions and remain in control of your decisions; then you need to make sure you’re equipped with all the right tools to make it happen.

As a KGHypnobirthing practitioner, I wish to inspire and provide couples with the knowledge and practical tools to enable them to have a more positive and calming birth experience. This includes the use of any pain relief and where and how they choose to birth their baby.

You deserve to have a brilliant birth experience.

Many women approach birth feeling fearful in some ways, not surprising given the negative stories flooding our media and what we might have heard (or not heard) about birth from family and friends growing up!  And because of the pressures on our wonderful NHS maternity services, many women end up going along the ‘conveyor belt of care’, not knowing their options and birth rights.

This needs to change and I want to help!

Hypnobirthing is as much about releasing fears and the toolbox of relaxation techniques as it is about the science of birth, and the many choices and options available to you, to help you have the best possible birth experience– whatever that looks like for you.

My other mission is Postnatal Wellbeing and supporting parents (whether for the 1st or 4th time!) in the incredibly beautiful but intense early days and weeks postpartum. Having experienced anxiety before having children, and again when my daughter was born, I feel really strongly about equipping parents with practical tools to navigate this momentous transition with confidence and calm.

I am a mum of two toddlers and live in Winchester, Hampshire. I can often be seen in town pushing a double buggy with a sleeping boy and a chatty toddler girl. As well as running after my two, I love going for park runs (on my own preferably ☺) and walking in the countryside where my husband and I get to properly talk! Am I a parenting expert? Absolutely not, I am a complete work in progress! I try my best, I make mistakes, I try again tomorrow, I have regrets, I feel guilt, I feel resentful, I feel guilty for feeling resentful, I laugh a lot, and I cry sometimes too. I strive to be a GOOD ENOUGH mum because parenting is a bit of a rollercoaster that is going too quickly for my liking, and I want to enjoy the ride, even if I have my eyes closed sometimes i.e. completely winging it!

Don’t hesitate to get in touch on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions. I offer a range of private and group courses, in person and on Zoom, including Hypnobirthing Refresher and Post 36 Weeks courses. For more information or to book a free chat (with no obligation to sign up afterwards!) you can also have a look at my website

Hello there, My name is Susanna,  I am a qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher and mum of two living  in a small village in Hampshire with my husband J-P and our two sons. I'm passionate about expecting parents understanding their opportunities to expereince a positive and empowering birth and teach both 1-2-1 and group hypnobirthing classes from my home in Bentworth, throughout North Hampshire and the surrounding area as well as online.

My Hypnobirthing journey started when I was pregnant with my second child. Whilst I was vaguely aware of Hypnobirthing when pregnant with my first, I dismissed it as 'hippie jargon' under the misguided assumption that I was not the sort of person it was aimed at. I could not have been more wrong. Whilst my first birth was relatively uncomplicated it was chaotic, out of control, and ill-informed.

The birth of my second son was entirely different. Employing Hypnobirthing techniques, my husband and I worked together to create a calm environment where I was comfortable, confident and completely in control. I have no doubt that had I attended a KGH course prior to my first birth, it would have been a very different, positive and empowering experience.

So convinced was I by Hypnobirthing and it's techniques, that I decided to train as a practitioner during my second maternity leave and I am now delighted to be able to offer both group and private KGH classes in North Hampshire and the surrounding counties. 

With my own first hand experience of childbirth both with and without Hypnobirthing, I have a deep understanding of the difference KGH can make to a mother and her partner, both during pregnancy as well as birth itself. Teaching evidence based techniques in a logical and practical  manner, my aim is for you to continue your pregnancy feeling informed, confident and calm so you may experience the best birth for you and your baby and have your own positive birth story.

I trained as a midwife in 1997 and left the NHS in 2005 to bring up my own children. I completed my Diploma in Hypnobirthing with the founder of KG Hypnobirthing Katharine Graves in May 2015 and I have been enjoying teaching hypnobirthing to couples since that time. My hypnobirthing classes are designed to release fear and to give women and their birth partners the tools they need to feel able to approach birth with confidence.

I also love to support families once their baby is born. I can help provide emotional or practical support with breastfeeding and baby care to help new parents grow in confidence. I can help establish good daytime routines for feeding and sleep and I also can provide night time nanny support to help parents to have more sleep at night. Once the baby is over 6 months I provide sleep training support to encourage the baby to sleep through the night.

I am married and live in Lymington with my husband and our three children.

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!
