Hypnobirthing London - Teachers' Directory
I am a mother of 2 grown up and amazing sons. I am also a midwife, a KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner and a Positive Birth Movement Facilitator. My family are kind enough to allow me plenty of time and space to indulge my passion for all women and their families to have THEIR best birth possible. I live in Central London but have an undying love for Brighton, East Sussex so happily share my knowledge and passion there too. I love my vocation and love to share.
I am a Qualified State Registered Nurse, Registered Midwife, Hypnotherapist and Hypnobirthing Teacher registered with the NMC, RCN and Hypnobirthing Association. I have over 30 years’ experience working within the NHS and private sector and I am committed to teaching expectant parents the wonders of the KG Hypnobirthing technique. As a midwife I will be able to explain some of the obstetric terminology that can confuse parents; My hypnobirthing classes will prepare parents emotionally, psychologically and physically in the antenatal period for their new baby and will empower them to question routine treatments and methods used in current obstetric practices.I am also a mother of three and only wish I had had the knowledge, skills and confidence to have been a hypnobirthing mum so I could have enjoyed the natural process of childbirth.Please read my website for information on course dates or call me to discuss (as dates do change and I am very flexible and can offer weekend visits). I look forward to introducing you to the wonders of Hypnobirthing so you can achieve a more relaxed, gentle and comfortable birth.
“Hypnobirthing is the most wonderful empowering experience that parents can bestow upon their unborn baby, bringing them into the world gently, calmly and naturally". I run group or individual sessions which are broken down into practical and theory , there is plenty of laughter and I am very approachable and friendly and have many "Hypnobabies in London and Bedfordshire area". I believe in evidence based practice and I continually strive for excellence and attend KG Hypnobirthing refresher courses and link with local antenatal services including the NHS and NCT, giving talks and attending active birth workshops. If parents remain skeptical please try a taster hour session which answers many of your Hypnobirthing question's and parents can experience a relaxation session !
I live in Peckham with my husband James, son Joseph (5 years old) and daughter Iris (2 years old).
I am committed to doing everything I can to help you experience the empowerment of a gentle and natural birth with Hypnobirthing.
Hypnobirthing is logical, simple, practical… a very effective and complete antenatal education. I will teach you invaluable hypnobirthing techniques in a relaxed and supportive environment; very informative with lots of laughter too!
I am also an advanced Neurolinguistic Programming therapist (NLP). This is essentially a form of life coaching which uses tools to unlock unhelpful behaviours, thought patterns or habits, replacing them with more positive and helpful ones!
NLP gives me the expertise to provide not only the core Hypnobirthing techniques but also to offer tailor made tools and exercises to help parents–to–be get the most from my course. For example, if a mum-to-be says she simply don't know if she's physically or mentally able to have the birth she wants I have exercises to help her believe in herself.
I offer ongoing support after the course has finished and am on hand to help you and your partner get the most from your practice.
I am trained in the KGH method with Katharine herself and I fundamentally believe in, and feel empowered by, the message and logic of hypnobirthing. My entire life revolves around babies! As well as Hypnobirthing I am a trained Doula,Breastfeeding Specialist, Nutritional Therapist,(specialising in preconception and pregnancy health) a 3 Step Rewind (Birth Trauma Support) Practitioner and an Infant Massage Instructor and Trainer.

Most importantly, I am a mother of 2 myself and am more passionate about the power of Hypnobirthing since having had my own wonderful experience in 2015 with my daughter, her birth is now featured as one of the official KGH birth films. It was truly amazing.
I am Gina Potts, founder of ZenBirth, a leading provider of KG Hypnobirthing in Kent and South East London. I am a hypnobirthing mother of two beautiful hypnobabies, and I have been teaching hypnobirthing since April 2011.
I first found out about hypnobirthing from a friend late in my first pregnancy. I read the book, and I knew immediately that hypnobirthing was for me. I passed the book along to my husband and he was also enthusiastic about the hypnobirthing approach. We took semi-private classes and when on to have a beautiful 'zen' birth experience with our son. You can read all about it on my website (www.zenbirth.co.uk).

I am the mother of two children and I have been a childbirth educator since 1995, having trained with the NCT.
I have prepared thousands of couples for labour, birth and early parenting in Battersea, Clapham, Twickenham and the surrounding areas.
On a personal note, I benefitted enormously from Hypnobirthing while preparing for the arrival of my second child. The birth was fast and completely natural; it was a joyous experience, to be cherished forever.
I hold a Diploma in Antenatal Education, a Diploma in Hypnobirthing and I am a member of the Hypnobirthing Association. I thoroughly enjoy putting Katharine's training into practice.
My name is Shirley and I live in Fernhurst in the border of the three counties West Sussex, Surrey & Hampshire. We have three daughters. Two of these were hypnobirths. My third birth was at home and the most amazing experience I have ever had. I realised the importance of understanding the birth process and how to work with your body will enable you to have a positive birth experience.
Birth and children are my world! I also run world music and movement classes for babies and toddlers called Yo Baby.
I run a local Positive Birth Movement Group, a local Home Birth Support group where we lend pools for a donation, I am a Reiki Master and currently training in Indian Head Massage and as a ABM Breastfeeing Counsellor.
I am so passionate about spreading the Hypnobirth word, giving birth is a life changing experience. By practicing Hypnobirthing you are also learning new skills for life that you continue to use after your baby is born.

The main face behind MummaPod: Mary-Anne Constable, a mother of two (Max, born in 2016 in the UCHL birthing centre and Molly, born in 2018 at home, in Teddington).
Mary-Anne is an experienced Hypnobirthing teacher as well as a Birth & Post Natal Doula. Historically, Mary-Anne has worked in the city, in the financial sector as well as in the Events industry for over 8 years. Her mission today, is to release fear and build confidence in you and to provide you with all the tools you need for a more comfortable, calm and positive birth experience and journey to motherhood, just as both of hers were. She trained with Katharine Graves & Developing Doulas.
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.
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.
