My hypnobirthing story started over two years ago when I was pregnant with my first baby. Until this point in my life all I had heard was that childbirth was painful, dangerous, and a risky business. I was convinced that being pregnant and giving birth was one of the few miracles in life that we get to experience, so why shouldn’t it be experienced positively?
From my academic background in Social Anthropology I believed that our reality was socially constructed. If we are told over the years and through mass media that childbirth is painful then we will believe and perpetuate this reality. So with a little help from Google I came across some fantastically positive birth stories. It was so refreshing. The one thing they all had in common was Hypnobirthing. So at my next appointment I asked my midwife about it and to my surprise she was very supportive and said my hospital offered a KGHypnobirthing course. I looked no further and signed up immediately.
My husband and I proceeded to practice and then use hypnobirthing successfully for the birth of our son almost two years ago. Since his gentle and calm entrance into this world we became strong advocates for hypnobirthing. However, reactions to our positive birth story were not quite what we expected. Many of our friends and family found it odd that we could speak so positively about something that is traditionally presented more negatively. Some dismissed us as soon as they heard ‘hypno’ thinking we were trying out some sort of new fad, not knowing how much scientific and physiological grounding there is in hypnobirthing. These reactions spurred me on to wanting to change the rhetoric around birth and take a more active role.
I since trained as a hypnobirthing teacher with Katharine Graves, the only hypnobirthing course accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. I am now a qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher and I'm ready to spread the message.
I hope that through teaching and supporting other women and their partners that we can change the rhetoric around birth together. We can start looking forward to our birth experiences and begin parenthood positively.
I’m Kara Cox. Producer by day and Hypnobirthing teacher by night. Mother of two hypno-babies.
The mere mention of pregnancy and birth used to make me break out in a cold sweat. That was before I stumbled upon this rather mystical sounding hypnobirthing. I did the course. Did LOTS of practise. The rest is history.
Baby number one was a swift, calm, hospital hypnobirth. Baby number two was a mind-blowing breech home birth. Thanks to hypnobirthing I’ve turned my biggest fears into my greatest achievements and I would LOVE to help you do the same.
I am a KGHypnobirthing trained teacher, accredited with the Royal College of Midwifery. I am also a trained actor and keen yogi. Both these things help me to breathe and not take myself too seriously!
I came to teaching Hypnobirthing because I did it myself and it worked. Simple as that. I had two very different births, but both times, practicing Hypnobirthing made me feel confident and in control. It allowed me and my partner to feel at the centre of the birthing experiences, making choices we understood and felt sure were the right ones for us. Although under very different circumstances both my births were extremely memorable and unforgettable experiences.
Whilst pregnancy is a period of joyful excitement, it can also be filled with fear and apprehension, and I firmly believe there are practical strategies couples can take through Hypnobirthing to allow them to enjoy and celebrate their journey towards birth and parenthood
I’m Megan Rossiter, a student midwife, mother and hypnobirthing practitionerbased in Surrey, covering areas including Thames Diton, Cobham, Esher, Surbiton, Molesey, Teddington, Kingston, Hampton and beyond.
My love for all things birthing came long before I discovered hypnobirthing, and I began my midwifery training in 2015. On this journey, I’ve been lucky enough to support many women through labour and birthing their babies, so when it came to giving birth myself I felt pretty prepared, right? Wrong!
I had an in depth understanding of the mechanisms of birth, hospital protocols and medical procedures, but I needed a way of understanding me. This body, this baby! WE had never done this before. That’s when a friend introduced us to hypnobirthing! And it changed me! As a mother, as a student midwife, as a person!
The course was amazing. Within just a few sessions, and some practice at home, I was able to relax, more deeply than I ever had before (which was welcomed during a very difficult pregnancy). My partner felt involved and the three of us felt connected (Me, Hubby and the Baby that is!). We were thrown one complexity after the other, and the prospect of ‘induction’ loomed over us. Hypnobirthing gave us the power to make informed, thought through decisions, to get the most out of our care providers and access safe, but personalised care. The glorious home birth plans we had made went out of the window, but thanks to hypnobirthing, we took everything thrown at us in our stride, and went on to have a calm, connected, beautiful birth! I would do it again tomorrow.
(Now, please excuse the preaching, but I hope you will feel the same after your birth too). WHY, I thought to myself, aren’t all women doing this?! Why isn’t this the FIRST thing they mention to you at your midwife appointments? Why is it still presented as some sort of hippy fad? Since then, it has been my mission to make birth positive, powerful and (dare I say it) enjoyable for new mums and families everywhere!
So, if you're ready to make your dream birth a reality, please get in touch!
Hi, I'm Yetunde a qualified KGHyponbirthing teacher and a mother of two. I discovered hypnobirthing in my first pregnancy while researching everything about birth. Having always believed that women are naturally designed to birth without drugs or pain I was thrilled to find proven techniques to facilitate this. Using the breathing techniques, visualisations and affirmations I enjoyed both my births and felt empowered by the process.
Knowing that hypnobirthing really works I wanted to share this with other women and their partners.
I am a registered midwife, KGHypnobirthing instructor, former university lecturer, mother of two girls, and resident of Highams Park.
I have a first class honours degree in midwifery from King’s College London. My dissertation was on women’s experience of a diagnosis of tongue-tie. My training was at St. Thomas’ Hospital, where I currently work part-time. I had a lovely homebirth with my second daughter while I was a student.
Before training as a midwife I was a university researcher and senior lecturer in education development. I have lots of experience of qualitative research – talking to people about their experiences – in the context of healthcare and learning, and learning for healthcare practice. I had my first daughter at Whipps Cross Hospital while I was a researcher, just completing a project looking at teamworking on delivery suites.
I am a feminist and am deeply passionate about supporting women, managing expectations, smoothing the transition to motherhood and helping women to make informed choices. By teaching couples with KGHypnobirthing I aim to empower women to have a calm, comfortable and positive birth.

I’m Syanne! I am married to an Egyptian man and have one lovely daughter. My parents are from Ghana and Jamaica, but I was born and brought up in South London. I love going out and meeting new people. I love eating and exploring new foods and cultures. I hope to visit every country in the world!
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.
