I teach group hypnobirthing and birth education classes regularly to expectant mums and dads/birth partners, as well as teaching privately in your own home if you prefer.
Mums to be also attend my pregnancy relaxation sessions which have a really positive and powerful effect, both mentally and physically, for pregnancy and labour. They are also a great opportunity to get chatting to other mums afterwards over a drink and slice of cake!
Positive birth and the sharing of this information, as well as tuning in with our innate feminine power, are all passions of mine. I fully support everyone in making the informed decisions that are right for them.
Any type of birth can be positive. Becoming informed is becoming empowered and with the right support, respectful care and regular relaxation practice, you will absolutely smash it!
I'm Jo Taylor, a hypnobirthing mum myself to Aaron in 2014 and Julia in 2018, KGH made a profound difference to my knowledge, understanding, mindset and belief system surrounding birth, so I qualified to pass it on!
On a personal level I chose and experienced two beautiful home water births. On a professional level, I advocate for education and choice and women trusting their own intuition in knowing what is right for them.
Having supported dozens of pregnant women and partners for a couple of years now, I have seen the positive impact my classes have in helping couples take ownership of what they want for their birth experience.
You can book tickets for upcoming courses and classes via my website or email me with any queries. I'm always happy to chat!

I came to Jo for a Hypnobirthing refresher with my second child after already experiencing first hand the huge benefits of Hypnobirth with my first child 5 years ago. Jo was absolutely brilliant. She expertly guided me through the KG Hypnobirthing course and helped reassure my partner and I with any concerns or anxieties we had. She was a constant support at every stage of my pregnancy providing help and advice when I was first told my baby was breech and then later back to back. I practised the relaxation scripts she provided me with and listened to the app every night. I used the techniques we practised together throughout my labour and my second daughter was again born quickly and without the need for any pain relief or intervention. I can’t praise Jo or Hypnobirthing enough and would encourage anyone to give it a go.
My husband and I joined Jo's hypnobirthing course whilst expecting our third baby, after a bad experience with a previous birth. There is so much to be gained from attending this course whether you are expecting baby number 1 or subsequent babies! I feel extremely confident now instead of feeling anxious, and we are looking forward to the birth of our baby. I also feel empowered to make choices that are right for us, rather than believing there is only one course of action. We know so much more now about the choices available to us, and how to make decisions that are right for us. Jo made us feel at ease from the moment we arrived and the surroundings and environment were just right. I highly recommend this course to all mums and dads to be.
Jo is fantastic! She made me and my husband feel very welcome and at ease. As first time parents we felt a lot of apprehension about birth. The course has really helped my husband feel confident in his role to guide me through labour. We both left the course feeling empowered and in control of our birth journey and are actually looking forward to it now which I never expected! Thanks so much Jo! :-D
When you are pregnant you hear all sorts of stories about labour and birth, and I had heard about two friends of friends who had very positive labours and births through hypobirthing so I decided to register for the course to get some more information with the goal to be more informed to enable me to make a more informed choice about my own birthing plans and whether I wanted to use Hypnobirthing or not. Jo's Wonder Wombs Hypnobirthing course surprised me and as a result of the course I feel like both myself and my partner are more equipped to manage the stages of labour and birth and I no longer feel scared and afraid of labour and want to approach it positively with my partner playing an active key role. The book, audios, scripts videos and parent notes are a great learning aid, that I will be using and practicing at home before my labour. The course has provided both my partner and I with new perspective on pregnancy and labour and it was an enjoyable weekend in a relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Couldn't recommend Jo's hypnobirthing course enough. Has changed my perspective on childbirth. She gave us lots of information about choices and how to support your partner during labour. I am now confident that I can relay our wishes during birth so my partner can stay focused and relaxed.
We would highly recommend Jo after attending a full day hypnobirthing course ahead of the birth of our second child. She made us feel very relaxed and calm by providing appropriate skills and knowledge and access to lots of useful resources. The course was informal and provided an opportunity to meet other parents to be and ask questions. Thank you.
“Thank you Jo for this weekend, feeling much more positive about the birth now and we will be able to use so much from the course. I feel like I learnt more this weekend than in any midwife or antenatal classes so thank you very much for all your help and knowledge."
Unfortunately (I first thought) I didn't get my home birth and had to be induced due to my waters breaking without contractions at 39 weeks. If I hadn't taken part in Jo's classes I would have panicked and become overwhelmed, instead, I practiced the breathing techniques and positive affirmations I had learnt which really helped me in keeping positive and excited to meet baby. My partner Nick, also knew exactly how to support me in the process as he had attended the classes and done the practice with me. The birth of our little girl resulted in a c-section as I couldn't get past 3cm and her heart rate started to drop. Throughout the whole experience, I never once felt scared or worried, I kept on breathing and listening to the hypnobirthing scripts and although the birth wasn't how I had hoped, it was a really positive and amazing experience and Jo had a huge part to play in this. Hypnobirthing has a strong link to natural births, however, hypnobirthing can have a huge positive impact on any birth and I will definitely be revisting the practices in future pregnancies! Thank you so much Jo for helping us see the positives and joy that birth can be whichever way it goes!
I attended the amazing relaxation classes. I only made it to 2 out of the 3 sessions as my little boy made a surprise arrival 10 weeks early! I went into early labour unexpectedly which was very stressful and I wasn’t allowed any strong pain relief but I used the breathing techniques and other methods Jo demonstrated in our relaxation classes and it really helped me through. I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and the cup of tea and cake after was a great extra touch. It was so nice to chat to Jo and the other expecting mums. I would highly recommend Jo to anyone.
I completed Jo’s three week pregnancy course, it gave me the relaxation I needed and allowed me to use this to implement techniques on my own in preparation for birth. Great course to get started with before moving on the hypnobirthing or simply stick with the relaxation course.
