Hypnobirthing South - Teachers' Directory
I am Hollie a fully qualified KGHypnobirthing practitioner
I am also a registered midwife in a very big, busy London hospital after originally training in Devon.
I have worked with woman and children in many different roles. I am very lucky to have the pleasure of supporting new parents throughout their journey as a midwife. I am very passionate about midwifery and empowering, informing women at this momentous time and being the advocate midwives are to be for the birth that is right for each individual and their baby.
Hi, I’m Rachel, founder of Barefoot Birthing. I hope you're feeling well during your pregancy.
I first discovered hypnobirthing whilst pregnant with my daughter. After her fantastic birth I had a light bulb moment - hypnobirthing and proper birth preparation is a BIG deal. After my son's homebirth, I was hooked on all things birthing, and there was no question that I wanted to share this incredibly logical, profound, and life-changing concept with other mums-to-be.
The impact of a positive birth experience for mum and baby should never be underestimated. A healthy baby is not all that matters, mothers matter too.
I have found my passion in working with countless new mums and had the honour of assisting many of them to bring their beautiful babies into the world. Through my practice in midwifery, I have seen firsthand the amazing effect hypnobirthing has on a labour and birth, and am passioniate about spreading the techniques!
I am anaesthetic midwife, which basically means that I am a nurse specialist in anaesthesia and a current student of midwifery. I have been calming mothers in the most terrifying situations of their lives for years, and have also worked with newborn babies and young children going through serious medical and surgical rough patches. For you, this translates as a mountain of practical knowledge and experience to help guide you and open up options for you and your birth. As a hypnobirthing teacher, I won't be invoking my medical training, but I use my skills and lived experience to deliver a pragmatic, gentle, eveidence-based and empowering course. I know that knowledge is power and I will pass mine on to you by the bucketload; and I have witnessed just how paralyzing fear can be, especially in childbirth, so I will teach you how to step out of anxieties, how to keep yourself calm (and each other!) and find your inner strength to discover just how much you are capable of. Questions and skeptics and enthusiasm are all welcome!
The birth of my baby and hypnobirthing inspired me to take on this journey to becoming a hypnobirthing teacher. I now want to share all these fantastic skills, inform and prepare mums-to-be and their birth partners for this magical moment in their lives.
I am based in Sutton, South London, Surrey and surrounding areas such as
* Worcester Park
I am the mother of two children and I have been a childbirth educator since 1995, having trained with the NCT.
I have prepared thousands of couples for labour, birth and early parenting in Battersea, Clapham, Twickenham and the surrounding areas.
On a personal note, I benefitted enormously from Hypnobirthing while preparing for the arrival of my second child. The birth was fast and completely natural; it was a joyous experience, to be cherished forever.
I hold a Diploma in Antenatal Education, a Diploma in Hypnobirthing and I am a member of the Hypnobirthing Association. I thoroughly enjoy putting Katharine's training into practice.
Sacha has a broad range of experience. Having initially gained a degree in psychology, she then trained as a registered nurse and has over a decade of experience in the NHS, building connections and delivering education to members of the public.
Whilst still passionate about helping people, in recent years Sacha has shifted to a more holistic way of achieving this, through yoga, meditation, life-coaching and hypnobirthing. She is trained in pregnancy yoga, yoga for birth preparation and KG Hypnobirthing, and has a true passion for empowering women to have the birth experience that they want.
Coming from a healthcare background means that it is important to Sacha that she can always back up her teachings with evidence and/or logic, and that she can always find a way of communicating effectively with the person in front of her.
