Hi, I’m Nicole! KGHypnobirthing teacher, Mum and birth fanatic!
I used hypnobirthing during my pregnancy and the birth of my son. My husband and I found it made a massive difference to our outlook on the experience, and it empowered us to be in control and confident. Despite a difficult pregnancy, we had the most wonderful experience.
My background is in language, having studied and researched linguistics for many years. As such, I understand the importance of the words that we choose, and the impact, both good and bad, that language can have an our experiences and relationships. I’m passionate about changing the language we use surrounding birth to positive
Having been involved in local maternity services, I have seen first-hand the difference hypnobirthing makes. I’m excited to support you in your pregnancy through hypnobirthing. Every parent is entitled to a calm, confident and empowered birth experience! I look forward to working with you to achieve that.
I'm based in the gorgeous northern town of Ramsbottom, I'm a Doula UK Recognised Birth Doula and the Northern Teacher Trainer for KG Hypnobirthing. My clients live throughout Manchester, parts of Lancashire and Cheshire and further afield via skype or zoom.
Meeting your baby for the very first time has the power to be one of the most magical and transformative events in your life. Setting up your birth so that you feel love and calmness helps the birth hormones flow effectively. Your body takes over and you can tap into your instincts that know how to birth a baby. That is what I can help you with.
In general, people know so little about birth and I am on a mission to change that!
I leave no stone unturned so you'll know everything you need to know to have the best experience possible. If you have a birth partner (which, these days, is usually but not always dad), I have a strong emphasis on teaching them what to do so they are not just a spare part. They will know what best to do to help you faciliate your baby's birth in the best way.
This helps you all bond together and start parenthood feeling strong.
Please get in touch. In the first instance, we can chat to see what it is you are looking for and what I can do to help you achieve that and we go from there.
Sending you Love,
With over 35 years experience of working with pregnant women and their birth partners, I am a mother of 3 grown up children and have personal experience of self hypnosis during my own births (Hypnobirthing). I am a midwife. I have given birth at home and in hospital. In the 1980's I was truly inspired by Dr Michel Odent and Ina May Gaskin. Together with my own experiences this led me to become a doula accredited by Michel Odent.
I later trained as a midwife. As a doula I worked in the North West of England. I have a strong passion to enable and support mothers (and partners) to have a positive birth experience.
In my role as a doula and midwife I have been privileged to have witnessed many calm and beautiful births unfold, many using self hypnosis or Hypnobirthing. I have been fortunate to have observed many water births, home births,and hospital births, including VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean).
For over 35 years I have supported and empowered women and their birth partners to make informed choices regarding their labour, birth, feeding and early parenting. I currently work within the NHS as a midwife in a midwifery led unit and in community.
I originally trained in The Mongan Method (USA HypnoBirthing). I am now also practising The Katharine Graves (KGH) UK Hypnobirthing. I teach 4 classes or a more condensed course over 2 separate days. I understand that people have busy lives, so as far as classes go, I can be flexible to accommodate your individual needs, either in a small group or on a one to one basis,
In addition to my Hypnobirthing teaching role I work privately as a reflexologist, offering -
Pre conception and Fertility enhancement with Reflexology and Fertile Body Method of Hypnosis.
Reflexology in Pregnancy
Reflexology for all womens health and relaxation
I offer private Antenatal Classes, preparing for labour and birth, helping you to do a birth "plan or preference sheet", role of the birth partner and much more at dates and times to suit your busy lives.
In addition to this I offer sessions to prepare for when your baby is born, which include breastfeeding and the postnatal time ie life with your new born, early parenting, bonding, parenting roles, what is normal, changing nappies,bathing baby etc.
Please contact me to discuss your personal requirements and my availability.
After 37 years as a practising midwife, I remain as passionate as ever about promoting birth as a natural and very special event. I have recently retired so have been able to channel my skills and experience in helping ‘soon to be mothers’ like you best prepare for birth. Experience has taught me a mother’s body is perfectly designed for birth, yet mothers have a tendency to work against it. I believe KGHypnobirthing is the perfect way for me to empower you with knowledge and skills to help you achieve the best birth for you.
I am professional in my approach, trustworthy, warm and friendly (so I’m told!). I will support you from first contact on enquiry, throughout pregnancy and for the first month after birth. I will provide you with a chance for birth reflection within my support period, both as a positive means of birth recovery and as a celebration. We will also have fun along the way
I hold both a teaching and counselling qualification and have extensive experience in teaching Antenatal Education, Active Birth and Relaxation, along with providing De-brief, Birth Reflection and Breastfeeding Support.
Please don't hesitate to ring me should you have any questions at all, or wish to discuss a tailor made session.
I have 3 children and have worked in famiy support all my adult life. I have been a Doula since 2011 and set up as a not for profit in 2014. I have recieved various pots of funding in order to provide support to all families. Running Snowdrop Doula CIC providing free support across Lancashire and the UK.

A BETTER WAY TO BIRTH.
Hello, my name is Leanne... I am a qualified KGH teacher, Hypnobirthing Mama & owner of The Lancashire Hypnobirthing Co.
I am an advocate for informed choice during birth and for supporting all women to have the best child-birth for them. By looking further in to HypnoBirthing and being here, you are already ensuring that you have all of the information, so that you can make informed decisions on what is best for you and your baby. The benefits of HypnoBirth for mum and baby are lifelong - so welcome! and remember, YOU'VE GOT THIS.
I always knew there had to be another way, a better way to approach child-birth. I found it frustrating that after announcing I was pregnant, more women would come to me with horror stories of birth than they would happy stories. So many spoke of the fear that I should be feeling about having to ‘push it out’. I felt deflated and a little scared. I hate the ‘one born every minute’ culture that has been created in today’s society…that somehow child-birth should be feared, that it isn’t natural and women’s hopes for it should be controlled and prohibited. I wanted to look back on the birth of Evelyn with amazement, pride and happy memories…and I do, thanks to HypnoBirth.
I went on to have the most INCREDIBLE experience welcoming Evelyn in to the world with my husband, Jason. I then went on to study with Katharine Graves and qualify as a KGHypnobirthing Practitioner (The KGH training course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and they are training many of our NHS Midwives across the country, too!)
My goal is to create a community, a safe haven where like-minded women can support each other through pregnancy, birth and beyond. I strive to deliver an informative, evidence based course in a calm, relaxing environment where parents feel supported, cared for and confident so that they can make positive choices throughout their birth journey. I am constantly developing our courses based on new research and evidence, client feedback and my personal interests, which at the moment is focused on supporting pregnancy after loss.
I can't wait to meet you! xx
I am the mother of two wonderful sons who were both born quickly and calmly in birth pools at home using hypnobirthing.
I came to hypnobirthing on a parents course while pregnant with my first. I always knew I wanted a home birth and I was fairly confident about giving birth, but I had heard a few “horror” stories and so I wanted to ensure I full prepared myself so I knew what to expect.
Everything in the course made perfect sense and I loved taking the time out each day to relax knowing that it was going to help me achieve the calm, comfortable birth I wished for. And it worked!!
The course also opened my eyes as to how society in general perceived birth and to how the ‘system’ worked in the maternity care services and I was saddened by the facts that women often feel nervous or even scared about labour/birth when it should be one of the most exciting times of a womans life and that some women do have a very negative experience of childbirth and this just didn’t sit well with me. We all know that birth can deviate from our “ideal” but whichever path a birth takes, whether it be completely natural, an induced labour, instrumental birth or even a C-section, it can still be and should be a very positive experience, where the woman feels in control, is given all of the information and options and is supported in all her decisions. These thoughts and feelings are what gave me the incentive to want to do more. To be able to inform and empower women and to help them achieve a birth experience that they will treasure for the rest of their lives is the reason why I love doing what I do and I am so privileged to be a part of their journey!
Hello, my name is Laura and I am a mummy of two and I live with my husband in Preston, Lancashire. I set up The better birthing company as I am passionate about working with women to enable them to believe that they can do it! They can have the best birth for them and be in control and knowledgeable and fully prepared. I use daily KGHypnobirthing with both my births which were both very different but I found it has made me enjoy and be able to look back on my births in a positive way and that's what I want for other women.
I am also a birth and postnatal doula and have an unhealthy obsession with cake and a fan of a gin or two xx
