Hypnobirthing & Pregnancy yoga classes in LONDON WATERLOO
Love, Support and trust. I believe every woman has the right to be supported by a friend. With her birth journey and with her new family. Someone to listen to, to understand her situation and to reflect her emotions.
My name is Liat and I am a mother to 3 beautiful girls. When I had my first baby I was washed over with lots of love and care for this tiny creature. I rediscovered myself and I felt like motherhood is my job, my profession. I couldn’t wait longer and when my eldest was 2.5 years old I had my second daughter. From family of 3 we became family of 4 and after 4 years we had one more addition to our family and I became proud mother of 3.
I know that birth is an emotional experience. It is the most happy, exciting and scary moment in our life.
My offer to you is a completely exclusive ongoing support during pregnancy. I will be available for you from 38 weeks (or earlier as per your needs), face to face, texts, WhatsApp, emails…
I will do my best to make sure you feel safe and confident in any way you choose.
When it’s time, I will be entirely with you. I will help you stay calm and feel loved and support. After birth I will meet you again at your home, making sure you and your family are taken care of.
Postnatal Care, it doesn’t matter if you are a first or a third time mum, you still need support! I am offering my experience as a mum of 3, helping you and your family to bond and recover from your amazing experience.
My care will be whatever you need including breastfeeding support, cooking you hot meal, rubbing your feet and babysitting your baby so you could shower and rest.
Birth preparation I also offer birth preparation in your convenient place like your home. Some parents only need a short session to remind them how birth starts, what to do in every stage, positions, breathing and more.
KGHypnobirthing I am excited to offer a KGHypnobirthing class. KGHypnobirthing is life changing for every woman.
I will be very honoured to help you try to get there.
I believe in good energy and a good connection.
I'm Yetunde a qualified KGHypnobirthing 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 have worked with children and families for most of my adult life and have been a hypnotherapist, psychosensory therapist and a master trainer for the past 7 years.
I do a great deal of work training school and children’s facilities staff as well as parents.
The work I do with parents ranges from those trying to become pregnant, being pregnant, giving birth to bringing up their children. It’s my passion and my whole life has been about finding out more about what makes us happy, healthy humans.
My husband and I have 3 daughters and 2 sons between us and we currently have 8 grandchildren.
Kirsty is a fully qualified hypnobirthing practitioner based in SW London. She is a member of the Hypnobirthing Association and the National Childbirth Trust (NCT). She has a diploma in Antenatal Education and teaches antenatal classes for the NCT. Kirsty is committed to do what she can to help people have a better birth experience. She regularly attends meetings with midwives and obstetricians at the local hospitals in order to feedback issues and keep updated with local hospital policies. Kirsty also attends study days and keeps up-to-date with current research and practice.
Kirsty has three children and has experienced birthing with and without hypnobirthing techniques. After a bad first birth experience Kirsty was terrified of giving birth a second time so undertook hypnobirthing classes. The difference between the births was unbelievable. The birth of her daughter (at home) was an empowering and enjoyable experience. Picture a relaxed, glowing mother sitting on her own sofa, nursing her newborn baby and enjoying a very well deserved cup of tea and chocolate biscuit! Contrast this to her first birth experience where she looked grey, was completely exhausted and couldn't move from her hospital bed, she wasn't even allowed to sit-up for 2 hours after the birth. Kirsty was so amazed at the power of hypnobirthing she feels that all women should be given the opportunity to have a positive birth experience. Kirsty has just had her third baby and once again had a brilliant experience as a result of using hypnobirthing techniques.
I understand that being pregnant is a very special time of our lives, and I am so happy to be able to help families to feel confident and supported throughout their journey.
Hypnobirthing is really a fantastic way to prepare with, and my experience so far is that it has a positive effect on labour and birth every time. I read more and more positive birth stories from my lovely couples who did Hypnobirthing with me, and I hope to receive loads more in the future.
I also work as a fitness professional, so I am familiar with motivating people, and help them to achieve their goals.
I hope I will see you in my class one day, and we can work together to achieve that beautiful birth you have dreamt of.
Hi, I’m Laura, The Holistic Doula
I am here to support you in your personal and unique journey to motherhood. I love working with both pregnant mothers as well as with mothers and babies once their baby/ies arrives.
My aim is to offer compassionate and heart centred continuity of care to you during your pregnancy, labour and during the early stages after your new babies arrival.
I believe that the happiness and health of mothers has a huge impact on babies and in turn society. This fuels my passion for supporting women in creating awareness, empowerment, respect and positivity around birth as well as creating value around the role of the mother.
I have a holistic outlook but I am also realistic. I have no preconceptions about what birth should look or feel like, and no bias towards the method. My aim is simply to support you and give you the tools to optimise your process whatever that ends up being.
Prior to the birth of your baby I will help you to identify your options and feel well informed and confident in your choices in preparation for labour. I can be someone that you can trust to air your concerns with and listen without judgement as you healthily explore any fears or concerns.
I teach Pregnancy and Mum & Baby Yoga as incredible tools to equip mothers emotionally, physically and mentally for pregnancy, labour and after child birth for bonding and wellbeing. This form of birth preparation cultivates connection, awareness and trust in the bodies natural intelligence. I teach movements and breath work techniques which can be effectively used in labour and practices such as relaxation, positive visualisation and mindfulness to help a mother to stay present. I bring a lot of the influence of this work into being a doula.
Additionally I organise beautiful Blessingway’s (the alternative to a baby shower) to honour a woman’s transition into motherhood. Postnatally I have trained in Closing the Bones and love to offer this beautiful ritual as part of the closing cycle post the birth of my clients babies should they so wish.
The Birth of your Baby
As your doula my aim is to enhance the labour environment by holding a space where you feel nurtured, safe and empowered to tune in.
Once in the flow of labour l will help you to get in the zone so that you can focus – offering encouragement and reminding you just what a powerful goddess you are. I will serve as a calm and grounded anchor for you throughout the varying stages of labour.
Whilst I am entirely there for you – I am not a replacement for your chosen birth partner – my support extends to them, to be their ally, and to help facilitate an empathetic, intimate and loving connection. My training in Holistic Massage means I also have some nifty massage techniques I can give you or offer your birth partner guidance on. I can offer various rebozo techniques to help support you during your labour process as well as some labour related aromatherapy.
I can come to your hospital to offer support with breastfeeding post the birth of your baby should a longer stay be required (depending on individual hospital rules).
Supporting your Transformation into Motherhood
I offer practical and emotional support during the first few weeks to ease you into parenting your own way. I can offer lots of practical assistance as well as a listening ear and a reassuring hug to help you navigate options available to you.
My role is to nurture you in this precious time, enabling as much rest and recuperation as possible so that you can give your baby the best of yourself. Perhaps allowing you time for a relaxing bath, some sleep or just simply some space.
Reintegrating you into home life could mean helping you in looking after your baby and or other little ones, assisting with feeds and nappy changes, assisting with breastfeeding, helping you to navigate new equipment, setting up your nursery, discussing various parenting methods, helping around the house, grocery shopping, cooking, making tea (cake and biscuits a necessity), running errands or even taking care of small furries.
My belief is that women are deeply intuitive about what they and their babies need. I want to help to fill you with confidence and positivity to trust your own instinctual wisdom – leaving you feeling strong and capable as you get to know your little one on the outside.
I strongly believe that birth completion is a really important part of the post natal care that a woman should receive. Should you wish to, we can take time for you to reflect on your labour so that you can move on from it positively. I offer the Closing the Bones ceremony as a beautiful tool to complete the circle.
In addition I can provide Postnatal Yoga and Holistic Massage therapy as well as many holistic post natal nurturing remedies.
It would be an honour to support you during this life changing time.
If you would like to arrange a meet up or call to get to know more about my offering please do get in touch by phone or email
I look forward to hearing from you should you feel that you would like to work with me.

Robyn Spens is a leading therapist, who makes a difference in people’s lives. She is an empathic communicator and understands how the power of the brain and the words we tell ourselves have an immense impact on our behaviour and our bodies. The sole aim of the work I do is to help couples achieve and maintain the best possible mindset.
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.
