Hypnobirthing North - Teachers' Directory
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.
I’m AJ, a KGHypnobirthing teacher, midwife, Level 2 personal trainer and all-round supporter of women! I am passionate about women’s choice and health and have been empowered through training as a KGHypnobirthing teacher to provide simple yet effective tools to help women to thrive during pregnancy and beyond. I work full time as a midwife in the NHS at a busy, central London hospital so the scope of my knowledge and experience in pregnancy, birth and beyond gives me incredible insight into what individuals can achieve as their woman-born right.

A mum to a lovely little girl-eager to spread the word on Hypnobirthing.
I am an experienced Pregnancy Yoga Teacher who following my passion and desire of helping women to achieve a calm and empowering birth, I decided to extend my knowledge by becoming a KGHypnobirthing Antenatal Educator.
I offer the mum to be an extensive private Hypnobirthing antenatal course. This will be an special time to reinforce the knowledge about your body, pregnancy and birth, achieving confidence, calm and serenity. Creating a healthy pregnancy and subsequently a wonderful birth experience for you and your baby.
I’m originally from Mexico where pregnancy and the transition into Motherhood is really supported by families and the community. Since I was a little girl, I found myself being part of this support and with time I realised that here it was the place where the seed of my passion for pregnancy and birth was placed, to eventually germinate and growth.
I have been living in London for the last 18 years, where my yoga practice and personal development started. I’ve been able to help hundreds of women through my yoga classes and HB courses to achieve a calm a positive pregnancy and also to have an empowering birth. Please read some of my testimonies and if my energy resonates with you and feel the call to reach out…I will be looking forward to hear from you and your baby.
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.
My name is Sara and I'm a doula, hypnobirthing and yoga teacher based in North London. Having had a traumatic birth experience with my first baby, I became passionate about the prospect of empowering women to have a positive birth by offering emotional and practical support during pregnancy, birth and the early days of motherhood.
