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.
Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy.
The experience coupled with the tools I learnt in hypnobirthing have quite literally changed my life -as cheesy as it sounds, both my husband and I live a much more stress free, fulfilled life and we are calm, confident parents.
Qualified nurse and midwife, interested in alternative and complimentary solutions within healthcare.
I love yoga the great outdoors and travel.
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!
I am a fully qualified solution focused hypnotherapist specialising in hypnobirthing. I am passionate about passing on the knowledge to empower women to have a positive birth experience - leading to a confident start for them and their babies. Over the last five years I have taught many women and their partners who have had their babies in varied settings - at home, in hospital, by caesarean. Its not about having a 'perfect' birth - it's for all births! The simple and gentle techniques really can have a profound effect on mothers, fathers and babies.
I became interested in hypnobirthing after the birth of my daughter. I had a long labour with a lot of intervention and felt traumatised by the whole experience, which put me in a vulnerable place to start motherhood. I felt that I must have had an unusually difficult labour, only to discover when speaking to other mums that my experience was pretty common and seen as "just the way childbirth is".
This seemed wrong to me on so many levels. Why was this a normal experience? Childbirth is something the majority of women will experience in our lives, it is a natural process that our bodies are designed to do. It should be something we look forward to as a rite of passage, surely it shouldn't be such a trial? And I found that it really doesn't have to be!
In my search for answers I became interested in hypnotherapy and trained at the Clifton Practice in Bristol. I then went on to specialise in hypnobirthing.
When I became pregnant again, I had my son at home in water using the hypnobirthing techniques I had learned and I had such an amazing time. What was the difference? I felt calm, confident and in control of my experience at all times. I was able to allow my body to do what it needed to do without interference from worries and anxiety.
This time I came out of the experience of childbirth feeling empowered and strong and it meant that I bonded easily with my baby, felt confident in my abilities as a parent and recovered quickly physically. I was able to let go of my previous birth experience and move on.
This is why I teach hypnobirthing. I am passionate about passing on this knowledge to empower women to have a positive birth experience - leading to a confident start for them and their babies.
Since my own experience I have taught many women and their partners who have had their babies in many different settings - at home, in hospital, by caesarean. Its not about having a 'perfect' birth - it's for all births!
The simple and gentle techniques really can have a profound effect on mothers, fathers and babies.
I have been teaching yoga and meditation to women since 2012. I have been certified as a KGHypnobirthing teacher in 2017 and used it myself as I gave birth in December 2017. It helped me a lot to overcome my fears and doubts and experience an amazing and serein pregnancy and birth as a result.
I teach private or group in South of France and London, in English and French.
J'enseigne le yoga et la méditation aux femmes depuis 2012.Aussi, depuis 2017, je suis practicienne certifiée KGH hypnobirthing.

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.
