Hi! My name is Kylie. I am a KGHypnobirthing practitioner.  

In the past I worked as a home birth doula and pregnancy massage therapist for several years.  I am now a registered midwife in a busy London hospital.

Over the years I have witnessed many women sucessfully apply Hypnobirthing to remain in control throughout labour and achieve a calm birth.

I am passionate about learning and sharing strategies and tools that can help you to be empowered through your pregnancy, labour and birth. Strategies and techniques that can support the progression of normal labour and birth.

My name is Lydia. I am a mum of two and a registered KGHypnobirthing practitioner (KGHypnobirthing the UK's leading provider). The KGHypnobirthing teaching diploma is fully accredited by the Royal College of Midwives, which is a testament to the highest standard of training. I am also a registered member of the Hypnobirthing Association.

I have first hand experience of Hypnobirthing and with two contrasting labour experiences, I understand the difference Hypnobirthing makes. My approach to teaching will empower you to have complete confidence in your own understanding and how Hypnobirthing can work for you.

My focus and passion is supporting women to have a joyful, empowered birth, whatever the kind of birth they choose.

I have been teaching pregnancy/postnatal yoga and childbirth education since 1991 and my classes reflect the wealth of experience I have, providing practical advice and encouragement to women throughout their pregnancies and as new mothers.

As well as teaching KG Hypnobirthing I am a qualified Yoga and Active Birth teacher and am registered with YogaBirth, the Active Birth Centre, Birthlight and the British Wheel of Yoga. I have completed the Unicef Breastfeeding Management training and I hold Diplomas in Remedial Massage and Source Breathwork. I am the mother of two boys, both born at home in water while using hypnotherapy, affirmations and relaxation techniques. I have a keen interest in complementary medicine and nutrition, particularly where it is relevant to pregnancy and labour.

I currently teach KGHypnobirthing, Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth Preparation and Post-Natal classes near Queen’s Park/Kensal Rise, close to NW6 and NW10 where I provide holistic support to women during the childbearing year. Private classes are also available.

I currently work as a midwife at Kingston Hospital having three years midwifery training at St Thomas' Hospital, where I gained invaluable experience and knowledge caring for a huge array of women and families. 

Prior to studying midwifery, I completed a Masters in Child Psychology and a BSc in Educational Studies with Early Childhood Studies. I am proud of my knowledge I have gained over the years and I have always admired the power of the human mind. 

I have cared for hypnobirthing mums who have experienced analgesic free births and those who have needed emergency caesareans. Each birth is unique, powerful and emotional. I have seen hypnobirthing work and I believe removing fear and negativity can make the experience of pregnancy, labour and birth a magical one.

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.

Hypnobirthing London

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.

Countrywide Membership

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.
