Hypnobirthing Middlesex - Teachers' Directory
I trained as a KGHypnobirthing teacher after using this method to have my first baby in 2016. I had an extremely positive and empowering birth, and I am excited and enthusiastic to help other mothers and families to achieve the right birth for them
I am also a trained Paediatric Nurse (since 2013) and still work in this field, specialising in caring for children with neurological and spinal injuries. I believe this experience helps me to give parents a better understanding of the healthcare system and give them confidence to make decisions throughout pregnancy and birth.
I currently work as a midwife at Kingston Hospital having three years midwifery training at St Thomas' Hospital, where I gained invaluable experience and knowledge caring for a huge array of women and families.
Prior to studying midwifery, I completed a Masters in Child Psychology and a BSc in Educational Studies with Early Childhood Studies. I am proud of my knowledge I have gained over the years and I have always admired the power of the human mind.
I have cared for hypnobirthing mums who have experienced analgesic free births and those who have needed emergency caesareans. Each birth is unique, powerful and emotional. I have seen hypnobirthing work and I believe removing fear and negativity can make the experience of pregnancy, labour and birth a magical one.
I came to hypnobirthing quite by chance as an anxious mum-to-be and it completely transformed my experience of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. I am now passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge with other mums-to-be and families to empower them to have a similar fantastic, calm and positive experience.
I have taught over 50 couples and my passion for empowering women in pregnancy, birth and motherhood only continues to grow.
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 Twickenham, Battersea 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.
More and more, hypnobirthing is being recognised as an excellent technique for birthing as it helps the mother have a far less stressful, much more relaxed and natural experience than she might have thought possible.
All of our accredited teachers are skilled, professional individuals who have trained in hypnobirthing techniques and are highly experienced in teaching mothers how to use these methods as a part of giving birth. We train and assess each of our teachers to ensure they meet our high standards of practice, and only then will they receive accreditation from us.
Each teacher espouses our ethics and principles, including promoting good practice in the teaching of hypnobirthing and displaying professionalism at all times. They are also committed to raising awareness about the benefits of natural birthing techniques, both to mother and baby, in order to increase recognition of it as a viable form of natural childbirth.
