Hypnobirthing London - Teachers' Directory
Hello, I am Diana! I was almost born in Tokyo. Yet my father, who spoke fluent Japanese and could have supported my mother during her delivery as both a birthing partner, and a translator, simply refused to be in the delivery room. He was absolutely terrified of the idea of witnessing birth.
Sadly, to this day, so many parents are apprehensive and anxious about the birth of their little baby. Working as a baby photographer for several years now, I have met so many wonderful parents-to-be, who are ecstatic about meeting their little baby, but oh so nervous about the birth.
As someone who has been privileged to meet many mummies-to-be for their maternity shoots, and then shortly after that for their newborn shoots, I have been fortunate to hear so many birth stories and experiences. Each unique and significant to the expecting family. Yet one approach to birth that seemed to be incredibly profound was Hypnobirthing.
Hearing so many positive stories sparked my desire to acquire all the knowledge necessary to support and prepare women for one of the most significant days in their lives - the day they meet their little baby!
Having trained with Katherine Graves, I am a qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher, who is determined to introduce as many expecting families as possible to the benefits of Hypnobirthing in a modern, relaxed and tailored approach.
I would be delighted to support you and your birthing partner in overcoming any fear or preconceptions about birth, as well as teaching you the tools and techniques to enable you to birth your baby confidently in the way that works best for you!
Hello there, I’m Lydia. I have been a practising midwife for the last 7 years, as a midwife and pregnancy yoga teacher completing my hypnobirthing training felt like the natural progression for me. I was extremely impressed by the variety of content provided within the KG Hypnobirthing course. Having taught NHS antenatal classes and government initiative parenting courses I bring a combination of years of experience. I am passionate about supporting families on their birth and parenting journey and would love to share my positive experiences of hypnobirthing with you.
Hi there, my name is Lisa and I am a KG Hypnobirthing teacher in Epping and East London. My background is in training, development and coaching, which has really supported me in becoming a hypnobirthing trainer.
I first came across hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my daughter, I had felt very anxious about understanding my antenatal care and the birth of my first child. KGH supported me greatly as a comprehensive antenatal course, and I now love being able to supporting expectant parents to have the best birth experience for them.
I cover Epping (and surrounding areas), Theydon Bois, Debden, Loughton, Buckhurst Hill and Woodford.

I'm origallly from Mexico and have been based in London for the last 13 years, where my yoga practice and personal development journey started.
I gained her Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher certification in Thailand with Lorraine Taylor, focusing on female bodies and energies. I hold a Yoga Alliance US accreditation (RYT200). I furthered my teacher training in 2015 becoming a Pregnancy Yoga Teacher with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli. Where my passion for creating nurturing spaces for mothers to be was totally awaken.
Deciding then to extend my knowledge becoming an KGHypnobirthing teacher. I offer the mum-to-be a peaceful time to reinforce the knowldege about pregnancy, to achieve serenity and to create a healthy pregnancy and subsequently a wondeful birth experience for her and her baby.
I am anaesthetic midwife, which basically means that I am a nurse specialist in anaesthesia and a current student of midwifery. I have been calming mothers in the most terrifying situations of their lives for years, and have also worked with newborn babies and young children going through serious medical and surgical rough patches. For you, this translates as a mountain of practical knowledge and experience to help guide you and open up options for you and your birth. As a hypnobirthing teacher, I won't be invoking my medical training, but I use my skills and lived experience to deliver a pragmatic, gentle, eveidence-based and empowering course. I know that knowledge is power and I will pass mine on to you by the bucketload; and I have witnessed just how paralyzing fear can be, especially in childbirth, so I will teach you how to step out of anxieties, how to keep yourself calm (and each other!) and find your inner strength to discover just how much you are capable of. Questions and skeptics and enthusiasm are all welcome!
Hypnobirthing produces effective, more stress-free childbirth to the mother and baby through the use of hypnosis methods to create relaxation. Our teachers are here to teach and support you, so that you can achieve this relaxation during your birthing for you and your baby.
We have teachers throughout Central London and Greater London, which means that wherever you live in the capital, you should be able to find someone who can support you and teach you hypnobirthing techniques for when you give birth. Each of them has been trained and assessed by us, so you can rest assured that whoever you choose, you will receive the best levels of support possible. If you wish to join a course with Katharine Graves she teaches once a month at St Thomas' Hospital. You can find out more details about her London Hypnobirthing classes here.
Our Core Principles
Each of our teachers also adheres to our code of practice, embracing ethics and best practice when teaching natural childbirth techniques, to enhance birthing for mothers. We also ask them to promote hypnobirthing and natural childbirth, if they do not do so already, to help make it a more widespread choice for a mother and to become more widely understood, generally.
