Hypnobirthing London - Teachers' Directory
Hello! My name is Lottie, author, writer and mum to two hypno babies - Mia and Lily. I'm a self confessed birth junkie and Doula having trained with the great Michel Odent in February 2013.
Being pregnant and giving birth is one of the most precious moments in life that should be cherished and experienced with gentle trepidation and positivity. Every baby deserves a beautiful calm birth and every mum deserves the support, information and tools to enable her to experience the birth she desires.
Informed choice is such a big issue for me. I believe that all women deserve to know that they are the only ones to 'allow' anything that happens to them or their body during pregnancy. We needn't live in undue fear.
I aim, with my courses to teach a calm and controlled approach to pregnancy and birth, and beyond. Incredibly passionate about breastfeeding, natural immunity and gentle attachment parenting I aim to share the knowledge I have gained since becoming a mum to help other mums to be (and dads) to benefit fully from the get go.
I cover all London area including the following locations:
- Chalk Farm
- Finsbury park
- Gospel Oak
- Hampstead Heath
- Kentish Town
- Liverpool Street
- Old Street
- St. John's Wood
- Tufnell Park
I am a mum, wife and a teacher of HypnoBirthing, BabyCalm and Baby Massage. I love all things Birth and Baby related.
I have been involved with HypnoBirthing since 2006. I trained initially with the HypnoBirthing Institute, the founding body of The Mongan Method. Prior to having my children I feared birth, but attending HypnoBirthing™ classes with my initially sceptical husband changed how we both felt about birth and we were able to positively look forward to both births. I work with expectant parents, across South London, North Surrey and North Kent on a Group and 1-2-1 basis helping them to achieve calm and enjoyable births.
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.

Wife to James & Mummy to Max, born in April 2016 to an incredibly successful hynobirth. The birth feels like my biggest achievement. As a result of such a beautiful and profound experience, I want to share my passion with others and allow them to have the same tools to have a calm, confident and empowering birth.
I am a qualified Hypnobirth teacher, trained by Katharine Graves and a member of the Hypnobirthing Association. I am also a Hypnobirthing mother.
I attended Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing course together with my partner when I was pregnant. Our son was born into this world calmly and naturally, something I had not thought was possible before knowing about Hypnobirthing.
My passion for Hypnobirthing led me to train to become Hypnobirth teacher. I am dedicated to help other couples experience what a difference Hypnobirthing makes.
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 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 passionate about hypnobirthing and supporting couples to have positive birth experiences. I hold a Diploma in KG Hypnobirthing (accredited by the Royal College of Midwives) and a Certificate in HypnoBirthing (Mongan Method). Additionally, I am an NCT-trained Breastfeeding Peer Supporter. And I regularly undertake on-going study and continuing professional development. I am a member of the KG Hypnobirthing Steering Group, an active member of the Hypnobirthing Association (UK), and have also been member of the HypnoBirthing Institute (USA). I am registered and insured by FEDANT (the Federation of Antenatal Teachers).
Please feel free to contact me for a chat.
I am a mother of 3 children and qualified as an Active Birth Teacher in 1997 and have been teaching pregnancy yoga, birth preparation classes and postnatal yoga for the last 15 years.
I also trained as a doula with the Paramanadoula training course.
I trained on Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing Course in 2010. I feel that the work I do as a yoga teacher and the practices of Hypnobirthing together give women a complete preparation for labour and birth. Also my experiences as a doula attending births give me the skills to really understand the support women need in labour and this is reflected in the workshops I offer.
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.
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.
