Hypnobirthing North - Teachers' Directory
As a midwife and childbirth educator I bring the combination of my many years experience to you, so you can learn some simple techniques that will make a difference to your birthing and parenting.
*Now offering virtual online courses to support you at this time*
Hello! I'm Kate, a Practising Midwife, KGHypnobirthing teacher and mum of 2. I'm also a reflexologist and am based in North London. I offer bespoke private KGHypnobirthing courses in your own home. I am passionate about educating women about their birth choices and helping you achieve the best birth for you! I love meeting new people and really value the difference positivity makes to our lives!
Love, Support and trust. I believe every woman has the right to be supported by a friend. With her birth journey and with her new family. Someone to listen to, to understand her situation and to reflect her emotions.
My name is Liat and I am a mother to 3 beautiful girls. When I had my first baby I was washed over with lots of love and care for this tiny creature. I rediscovered myself and I felt like motherhood is my job, my profession. I couldn’t wait longer and when my eldest was 2.5 years old I had my second daughter. From family of 3 we became family of 4 and after 4 years we had one more addition to our family and I became proud mother of 3.
I know that birth is an emotional experience. It is the most happy, exciting and scary moment in our life.
My offer to you is a completely exclusive ongoing support during pregnancy. I will be available for you from 38 weeks (or earlier as per your needs), face to face, texts, WhatsApp, emails…
I will do my best to make sure you feel safe and confident in any way you choose.
When it’s time, I will be entirely with you. I will help you stay calm and feel loved and support. After birth I will meet you again at your home, making sure you and your family are taken care of.
Postnatal Care, it doesn’t matter if you are a first or a third time mum, you still need support! I am offering my experience as a mum of 3, helping you and your family to bond and recover from your amazing experience.
My care will be whatever you need including breastfeeding support, cooking you hot meal, rubbing your feet and babysitting your baby so you could shower and rest.
Birth preparation I also offer birth preparation in your convenient place like your home. Some parents only need a short session to remind them how birth starts, what to do in every stage, positions, breathing and more.
KGHypnobirthing I am excited to offer a KGHypnobirthing class. KGHypnobirthing is life changing for every woman.
I will be very honoured to help you try to get there.
I believe in good energy and a good connection.
I decided to extend my knowledge as a yoga teacher specialised in pregnacy by becoming an KGHypnobirthing teacher. I offer the mum-to-be a peaceful time to reinforce the knowldege about her body, pregnancy and birth, achieving confidence, calm and serenity, creating a healthy pregnancy and subsequently a wondeful birth experience for her and her baby.
I'm origallly from Mexico and have been based in London for the last 16 years, where my yoga practice and personal development journey started.
I gained my Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher certification in Thailand with Lorraine Taylor, focusing on female bodies and energies. I hold a Yoga Alliance US accreditation (RYT200). I furthered my teacher training becoming a Pregnancy Yoga Teacher with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Restorative Yoga Teacher with Judith Lasater, where my passion for creating nurturing spaces for mothers to be was awaken.
I'm the founder of the women's circle: "Journey Into Motherhood", an intimate gathering where mums to be are invited to share and express their emotional experiences through pregnancy, taking time to slow down, connect within and journal what pregnancy and their babies are unfolding for them.
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.

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.
