Hypnobirthing Manchester - Teachers' Directory
I am a qualified midwife with over 13 years experience working in the NHS. My current role is as a Practice Based Educator for Maternity.
I live in the Stockport area and I am a wife to Paul and mummy to William and Poppy.

Meeting your baby for the very first time has the power to be one of the most magical and transformative events in your life. Setting up your birth so that you feel love and calmness helps the birth hormones flow effectively. Your body takes over and you can tap into your instincts that know how to birth a baby. That is what I can help you with.
In general, people know so little about birth and I am on a mission to change that!
I leave no stone unturned so you'll know everything you need to know to have the best experience possible. If you have a birth partner (which, these days, is usually but not always dad), I have a strong emphasis on teaching them what to do so they are not just a spare part. They will know what best to do to help you faciliate your baby's birth in the best way.
This helps you all bond together and start parenthood feeling strong.
Please get in touch. In the first instance, we can chat to see what it is you are looking for and what I can do to help you achieve that and we go from there.
Sending you Love,
After 37 years as a practising midwife, I remain as passionate as ever about promoting birth as a natural and very special event. I have recently retired so have been able to channel my skills and experience in helping ‘soon to be mothers’ like you best prepare for birth. Experience has taught me a mother’s body is perfectly designed for birth, yet mothers have a tendency to work against it. I believe KGHypnobirthing is the perfect way for me to empower you with knowledge and skills to help you achieve the best birth for you.
I am professional in my approach, trustworthy, warm and friendly (so I’m told!). I will support you from first contact on enquiry, throughout pregnancy and for the first month after birth. I will provide you with a chance for birth reflection within my support period, both as a positive means of birth recovery and as a celebration. We will also have fun along the way
I hold both a teaching and counselling qualification and have extensive experience in teaching Antenatal Education, Active Birth and Relaxation, along with providing De-brief, Birth Reflection and Breastfeeding Support.
Please don't hesitate to ring me should you have any questions at all, or wish to discuss a tailor made session.
Hi, I’m Becky!
I have been working with parents, babies and families for over 10 years and I love what I do.
My background is in swimming and I am the owner of Dolphin Academy Swimming School where I teach several Baby swimming classes alongside special Aqua Natal Yoga for mummies-to-be.
I also teach Pregnancy yoga classes, and hope to give expectant parents the most out of their special journey! I don’t want this journey to end once baby is here, and with my baby massage, baby swimming and mummy yoga classes I hope to stay with you throughout this amazing time!
Pregnancy and birth should be such a magical time, but often from a past experience or stories told from friends/family, this can be filled with anxiety. This is not the way nature intended, and I want to help women to embrace this wonderful time of their life!
Hi I'm Ruth, the Down to Birth - KGHypnobirthing founder and teacher. I'm a KGH mum myself and I'm really passionate about sharing the wisdom of KGHypnobirthing to all of my mums and birth partners through a fun, informative and transformative look at birth! I’ve been the soon to be mum, relentlessly searching the internet for information information information! I was "ready" but daunted for the birth of my baby. I then attended a KGH course with a local teacher and it transformed me (and my husband too actually) … My thinking completely changed and we birthed our babies the way we wanted to. Our births were completely different, but both were our births. We did it as a team, me, my husband and our babies- and it was magical. I want that for every woman I come across, I don’t care how she chooses to give birth, but I want her to feel empowered, calm and ready to meet her baby.
My name is Laura and I'm a mum to a very energetic little boy. Originally from Glasgow, I now live in Cuddington with my husband and son.
After my own birth I decided I wanted to become a birth worker to advocate for mothers and help them to have the best birth experience possible.
Unfortunately I didn't know much about hypnobirthing until after my own birth experience. I fully believe my son's birth would have been a positive and happy experience if I had been a hypnobirthing mum rather than a traumatic one.
Now I am extremely happy and proud to call this my job and I can't wait to support lots of future mums in having a calm, positive and happy birth.
Hi, I’m Nicole! KGHypnobirthing teacher, Mum and birth fanatic!
I used hypnobirthing during my pregnancy and the birth of my son. My husband and I found it made a massive difference to our outlook on the experience, and it empowered us to be in control and confident. Despite a difficult pregnancy, we had the most wonderful experience.
My background is in language, having studied and researched linguistics for many years. As such, I understand the importance of the words that we choose, and the impact, both good and bad, that language can have an our experiences and relationships. I’m passionate about changing the language we use surrounding birth to positive
Having been involved in local maternity services, I have seen first-hand the difference hypnobirthing makes. I’m excited to support you in your pregnancy through hypnobirthing. Every parent is entitled to a calm, confident and empowered birth experience! I look forward to working with you to achieve that.
I am an adult nurse and midwife with 16 years experience of working in the NHS. Having observed Hypnobirthing women labour and birth their babies so efficiently and beautifully, I felt it imperative that I train and offer this service to the women in my care. I now offer Hypnobirthing courses for parents to be.
Please see my website for more details about my courses and feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
