I have worked as an NHS occupational therapist for 38 years in medical, surgical and mental health specialities.  I have many years of experience in teaching Pilates and fitness and I am also qualified in hypnotherapy which I have used to help people overcome anxiety problems and addictions such as smoking. I also specialise in helping people improve many other aspects of wellbeing, including sleep quality, physical activity and a unique approach to quitting smoking. I have two children - now grown up but I remember when they were born like it was yesterday!  As a KGhypnobirthing teacher, I would love to help you learn the skills you need to have a relaxed, safe and inspirational birth experience.

My hypnobirthing story started over two years ago when I was pregnant with my first baby. Until this point in my life all I had heard was that childbirth was  painful, dangerous, and a risky business. I was convinced that being pregnant and giving birth was one of the few miracles in life that we get to experience, so why shouldn’t it be experienced positively?

 

From my academic background in Social Anthropology I believed that our reality was socially constructed. If we are told over the years and through mass media that childbirth is painful then we will believe and perpetuate this reality. So with a little help from Google I came across some fantastically positive birth stories. It was so refreshing. The one thing they all had in common was Hypnobirthing. So at my next appointment I asked my midwife about it and to my surprise she was very supportive and said my hospital offered a KGHypnobirthing course. I looked no further and signed up immediately.

 

My husband and I proceeded to practice and then use hypnobirthing successfully for the birth of our son almost two years ago. Since his gentle and calm entrance into this world we became strong advocates for hypnobirthing. However, reactions to our positive birth story were not quite what we expected. Many of our friends and family found it odd that we could speak so positively about something that is traditionally presented more negatively. Some dismissed us as soon as they heard ‘hypno’ thinking we were trying out some sort of new fad, not knowing how much scientific and physiological grounding there is in hypnobirthing.  These reactions spurred me on to wanting to change the rhetoric around birth and take a more active role.

 

I since trained as a hypnobirthing teacher with Katharine Graves, the only hypnobirthing course accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. I am now a qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher and I'm ready to spread the message.

 

I hope that through teaching and supporting other women and their partners that we can change the rhetoric around birth together. We can start looking forward to our birth experiences and begin parenthood positively.

KG Hypnobirthing course will help prepare you for a positive birth experience and beyond birth. I am pleased to offer 1 to 1 courses and group courses

Hi, I'm Lucy,

I'm a mum of three with a passion for birth and babies. All three of my babies were KGHypnobirthing births (although different experiences). I think all women should be able to go into their birth with a good understanding of what is happening, what is likely to happen and with techniques at their disposal to ensure they have the most calm and positive experience possible. I am also currently a trainee Breastfeeding Counsellor with the ABM.

In my younger years I studied social anthropology (and archaeology) at Cambridge University, travelled and lived abroad - including in New York City, trained as a massage therapist,and spent many years as a Communications / PR professional. I am a big fan of chocolate, tea, murder mysteries, walking on the beach and Netflix.

I am a mother of three and a birth geek, living and working in North London. I am passionate about childbirth and helping women and their partners find the confidence to have the best birth for them.

I am a qualified antenatal, hypnobirthing and Active Birth teacher. I teach Pregnancy Yoga, Postnatal Yoga and Couples Yoga and Preparation for Birth workshops. As a doula, I have first-hand experience of supporting mothers and their partners through all kinds of births.

I have spent a long time taking the best bits of all my training and creating classes that will give women the best chance of a straightforward birth. By understanding the body and the physiology of birth, a lot of the fear that surrounds childbirth is removed and women are empowered to believe in themselves and their bodies’ abilities to birth their babies. By being active in labour, using yoga, and utilising the power of their breath, women can find childbirth more manageable.

From my experience of having children and from attending births, I understand how important the birth partner role is, and I nurture that throughout my classes.

I don’t believe in striving for a particular type of birth. Birth, like parenthood, is completely unpredictable so I encourage women to think about all eventualities. Ultimately I want to help you birth with confidence and feel positive about your labour, however your baby is born.

My name is Jessica Warne and I am a clinical hypnotherapist and hypnobirth teacher based in Hampstead, London.

I have worked supporting families in the antenatal and postnatal period for over a decade and still wake up with a smile on my face every day, feeling extremely privileged to be able to work with families during this precious and exciting time. 

I am an antenatal educator, hypnobirth teacher and I am clinical hypnotherapist specialising in working with mothers during the perinatal period. 

I utilise my skills as a clinical hypnotherapist and my experience in the perinatal mental health field, to provide hypnobirth courses that uniquely encourages preparation for the postnatal period alongside birth.

I am utterly passionate about ensuring couples have a smooth and positive transition to becoming parents. I aim to encourage active participation in my group courses and private classes, to enable both partner and birthing mother to feel informed, positive and confident as they continue their journey towards the birth of their child. 

I am also the founder and former CEO of the successful perinatal mental health charity 'Cocoon Family Support'. Alongside my private practice I offer my hypnobirth courses to service users of the charity. I do this as utilising the skills hypnobirthing provides has been proven to lessen the risk of birth trauma and support those with pre-exisitng anxiety to have a positive birth experience. 

I very much look forward to meeting you and working together to create a positive, natural birth experience for your family
