Hypnobirthing London - Teachers' Directory
After having prepared a hypnobirth and given birth to my first baby at home, I became fascinated with the birth process and the power of a woman's body. Coming from Spain, where giving an epidural to mums is part of a routine and cesarean rates are high, I didn't know how empowering giving birth could be.
I thank KG Hypnobirthing for opening my eyes and help me discover this passion in me. Now I want every possible woman to have the amazing experience and joy I had when giving birth to Arthur. I want women to come through birth empowered and remember it for life as one of their happiest moments. I want couples to work together on this and be prepared for birth and to have the best outcome. You owe it to yourselves.
My name is Edwina and as well as being mum to two gorgeous girls, I’m a KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner; ‘Birthing from Within’ Birth Preparation Mentor; Life Coach and experienced Registered Shiatsu Practitioner, specialising in pregnancy. In a previous life, many moons ago, I was a Chartered Accountant!
As the founder of ‘Birthways’, I’m passionate about helping couples have a positive, empowering birth experience however events may unfold.
My range of qualifications and professional experience allow me to offer you support on many levels (emotionally, mentally and physically) throughout your pregnancy. I will give you the tools to achieve the best birth for you and increase your potential of a calmer, gentler birth.
You’ll learn ways to relax; release any fears and anxieties; build trust and confidence in your body’s ability to birth and feel fully prepared and aware of all your options.
My passion for birth started during a postgraduate course in ‘Shiatsu for Maternity and the Postnatal Period’. This simmering passion ignited after my two amazing home births. Despite some unexpected events along the way, including a hospital visit, throughout my labour I truly felt a deep level of calm and at one with the powerful flow of nature and birth. There’s nothing quite like that magic moment when you realise ‘I did it…We did it!!!’ The recognition that you stepped into the unknown; laboured; did what you instinctively needed to do to get through each moment and were now on the other side with your baby! I strongly feel that my birth preparation significantly contributed to what I can only describe as a life-affirming event.
When I’m not supporting pregnant couples, you may find me at yoga, cycling, playing tennis and being a ‘mummy taxi’ to my 13 and 10 year old daughters... amongst other things!
It’s such a privilege and joy to mentor mothers and their birth partners as they journey towards the birth of their baby and themselves as parents. I love my role as a KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner and Birth Preparation Mentor and look forward to meeting and working with many more families for years to come.
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.

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.

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.
