Hypnobirthing East - Teachers' Directory
I began my training as a doula with Nurturing Birth Doulas in June 2019 following the birth of my daughter in 2018. Her birth came after several years of infertility, IVF and pregnancy loss.
Once I was ready to believe that I finally was going to have a baby, I put everything into finding out all that I could about pregnancy and birth. I undertook Active Birth and Hypnobirthing courses and practiced the techniques. I was determined to not let the birth of my child be defined by the medical intervention that defined her conception. As IVF pregnancies are often categorised as ‘high risk’, this was not straightforward. However, I did end up having an extremely positive birth experience, one that I believe may not have been possible if I hadn’t prepared in the way that I did and hypnobirthing was a key aspect of this.
After the birth, I immediately knew that I was not ready to leave that world behind and wanted to support others going through pregnancy, birth and new parenthood. I decided to train as adoula and immediately knew that I wanted to be able to provide KGHypnobirthing to my clients, this having made such a significant impact on my own birth experience.
I'm based in Hackney, East London and live with my husband and my son (7) and daughter (almost 4). I had been wanting to teach hypnobirthing for years and finally in March 2020 I decided to take the plunge. In April 2020 Hackney Hypnobirthing was born- absolutely all puns intended.
My classes are straightforward, supportive and fun.
As they're are currently exclusively via Zoom they come from home to yours, wherever that may be... and the best bit? No need to travel anywhere - dial in from bed and wear your pyjamas if you like... Lots of my clients do!
I've always looked for the most natural approaches to life, from food to any kind of treatments and products.As an Osteopath and Holistic Therapist, I could repeatedlyverified the great power of the body, mind and nature and how they perfectly work together when in harmony. During my pregnancy, my maternal instinct also guided me to look for the most natural approach to pregnancy, labour and my baby's birth. I've always believed in the miracle of life and how special is pregnancy from conception to birth. As the woman body is absolutely capable of growing a baby, it is equally capable to give birth because it is designed to do it.
I found out that Hypnobirthing could confirm my theories, I started to read books about it and then my partner and I have decided to attend a Hypnobirthing antenatal course. I believe that Hypnobithing chose me, my natural way of feeling and living life put me on this wonderful path where I found the best approach to the greatest experience in a woman's life. I loved any moment of the course, from the classes to the daily practices. I increasingly felt more confident about me, my pregnancy and the birth of my baby and I was sure that everything was going to be ok, that I would have the best birth for me and my baby. It was indeed the best empowering experience ever, it was swift and easy, a magical event for my baby, my partner and I.
Even before giving birth to my baby, I had decided that I wanted to transmit this knowledge to any woman who wanted the best natural labour and birth. I've trained directly with Kathatrine Graves, the founder of KGHypnobirthing, which was a great honour for me and a wonderful opportunity to deepen the Hypnobirthing concepts and anything else related to pregnancy and birth. My previous knowledge about the body, my specialisation as Osteopath in treating pregnant women and newborns, my holistic and natural approach to health, my training as a KGHypnobirthing teacher are essential tools in guiding mothers and couples in achieving the best care and the best labour and birth possible.
Hi! I’m Tahira, a Hypnobirthing teacher based in London. I’m a mum of two, and used Hypnobirthing techniques throughout both of my pregnancies and labours.
Hypnobirthing 100% worked for me - especially when things didn’t go to plan. The teachings kept me calm, focused and also gave me an understanding of what was actually happening to my body.
Ever since the birth of my first baby I’ve been passionate about teaching others about this wonderful practice to help other mums have the best birthing experience possible through relaxation, breathing, focus and what is essentially Hypnobirth brain training!
