Hypnobirthing Hampshire - Teachers' Directory
Hi, my name is Louise and I live in Sandhurst with two of my three boys and our dog, Harry. take a look at my website http://www.thepeacefuldoula.co.uk I gained my Hypnobirthing Diploma at KGHypnobirthing, “The Gold Standard” of the hypnobirthing world. A programme designed by the guru of Hypnobirthing, Katherine Graves and delivered by the aspiring Nancy Keen. I completed my Doula Training underneath the guidance and instruction of the very experienced Kicki Hansard at the BirthBliss Academy..
My name is Charlotte and I am a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher and Doula based in West Berkshire. I am also Mum to 3 wonderful children, wife to 1 wonderful husband and a complete & utter birth nerd! When I had my first baby 13 years ago my passion for pregnancy and birth was born and I knew that somehow I had to do something to support & empower women to go on to have the positive births that they deserved.. just like I had. My second birth was equally as calm, relaxed and magical (she was born in her sac!) and I was even more determined to change the negative mindset that so many pregnant women find themselves in - that birth is a medical event & is going to hurt! I then trained to be a Doula in 2010 and was privileged to support many women through their pregnancies, births and early days of motherhood. Baby number 3 wasn't far behind and again my positive mindset, confidence, calm & relaxed attitude and understanding of the task ahead made for another quick, peaceful birth!! Being Mummy then took over my life and I had to put Doula duties on hold until my children became more independent... and then I discovered Hypnobirthing! I couldn't believe it, it was everything I had believed in and had practised with my own babies with scientific evidence to back it up and even better.. I could become a teacher! I didn't really have to consider it and soon trained to become a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher which is honestly the most wonderful "job" and I feel so lucky to be able to make a difference to pregnant women, their birth partners and their whole experience of pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Hi my name is Abi.
Congratulations on your pregnancy and for taking the first step to looking into hypnobirthing and what's offered out there. I have two sons 12 and 6, it was their labours which ignited my passion to teach women about birth preparation and tool them with all the knowledge they need in order to achieve the birth that is right for both mother and child. I also feel very passionate about helping Dad/birth partner to feel as involved as they can and to tool them so that they don't feel like a spare part.
It doesn't matter whether this is your 1st pregnancy or your 5th - hypnobirthing is for everyone and each time that I run the course I learn something new. I have taught first time mums who haven't a clue what to expect, second and third time mums who want to have a birth that they feel in control of, mums who are in the medical profession and twin mums. I have had women who when they first came to me had been told how they would labour their babies but by the end were working with their care team to have the birth that was right for them and their babies. A lot of dads or birth partners don't want to initially attend but all who have attended the first session have fallen in love with the contents and have become so passionate about hypnobirthing that they can't help but tell anyone who will listen about what they are learning.
As a KGH teacher I will support you from the moment that you book onto my course until after baby is born. I also offer postnatal support.
I am a qualified hypnotherapist and counsellor and can offer you a relaxing and safe space to learn in. I have two teenage children and love to work with others to help develop that fundamental relationship that you will have with your baby right from the word go
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.
Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm Harriet, mother of one and registered KGHypnobirthing practitioner. My job is to help you feel confident and calm during pregnancy, and to arm you with the knowledge and skills you need to help you take positive control of your birth experience. If you have any questions about hypnobirthing or the courses and products I offer, please don't hesistate to get in touch via my website.
I became a mother for the first time just over 3 years ago and practised hypnobirthing techniques during both my first and subsequent labour.
KGallowed 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!
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.
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.
