My name is Victoria. I am a qualified midwife and have four children. Throughout my career as a midwife I have worked in three large hospitals, two in London and one in Edinburgh. Completing my family in 2014, having four children under the age of 4 years old, gave me a different focus and changed my ideals. I had witnessed women using hypnobirthing for their birth experiences before and was amazed at the benefits. This is what led me to becoming a KG Hypnobirthing teacher. My vast experience as a qualified midwife and a Mum of four children gives me invaluable added knowledge. I am very passionate and excited about the programme I teach. I know it works! The knowledge and skills I will teach you will make a positive difference to your birth experience. I am passionate about positive birth and sharing knowledge and information to acheive the birth that you want. I provide KG Hypnobirthing classes, one to one, in West Lothian, South Queensferry, Falkirk, Kirkliston, Bo'ness, Stirling and Edinburgh. I also provide Relaxation In Pregnancy antenatal classes in Linlithgow on a Tuesday evening in 4 week blocks and Hypnobirthing Basics classes too as an introduction to Hypnobirthing. More information is on my Facebook page, KG Hypnobirhting West Lothian.

Hello, my name is Claire, I'm married to my lovely Husband, Graham and together we have two beautiful children; Georgia and Ryan.

I’d love to take a little moment to tell you how I found my love and passion for Hypnobirthing. It all started because I had rather a traumatic delivery with Georgia and this sadly affected me for some years after her birth. When I fell pregnant for a second time, I was extremely lucky to meet an incredibly kind midwife at my 16-week appointment. She quickly noticed my fears and anxiety and suggested I look into Hypnobirthing - I will forever be grateful to this very special lady. 

This is where my journey towards the birth I'd always dreamed about began. I studied KGHypnobirthing and from the very first session I was converted to this logical, science-based approach to birth. Everything made so much sense! I loved the fact that my Husband felt empowered to have more of an active role, and the practice we had in the lead up to the birth of our baby boy brought us closer together. It was such a special time in our relationship. 

I had a water birth with my little boy and he was born swiftly and calmly within a few hours of me going into labour. I only had a little bit of gas and air and one slight intervention was needed. He was so relaxed when he arrived that he didn't cry. It was honestly the best moment of my entire life and one that I still re-live over and over again. It really was AMAZING!

Whilst on maternity leave, I discovered that not only had KGHypnobirthing changed my life but it had also become my passion. I needed to help other women understand that birth could be something to look forward to and be met with confidence and calmness and that a positive experience is most definitely achievable and so, I decided that I would look into training to become a KGHypnobirthing Teacher.

I was trained by Katharine Graves herself and I am now qualified to teach the KG Hypnobirthing course, which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. I am also a member of The Hypnobirthing Association.

Hi I offer a wide variety of services from Conception to birthing and beyond. I work as a Complementary therapist and Hypnotherapist at the Rosemount Centre in Aberdeen where I also hold my Hypnobirthing classes.

I am a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist and have also undergone Doula training with Red Tent Doulas. My own deliveries were very much in the clinical style 30 years ago even though I wanted a more holistic approach so Hypnobirthing is very much close to my heart.

I want mothers to feel in control of their deliveries and to have the best birth experience possible.

Hi I am an experienced Hypnotherapist and Hypnobirthing Teacher with a passion to help women experience the best possible birth experience using KGHypnobirthing tools and techniques.  I think women have the opportunity to be better informed  and have more say in what they do and don't want during pregnancy and  labour.   KGHypnobirthing involves the partner through the whole experience (if that is what the mother wants) and makes sure you are equipped with the information you need to make your birth experience wonderful.

Hi,

My name is Kirsty. I live in Aberdeen with my fiancé, Liam and our son, Joseph. Giving birth was the best day of my life and that was thanks to hypnobirthing!

I was terrified when I found out I was pregnant, but completing a face to face hypnobirthing course really turned that around. From there on I was able to enjoy and appreciate my pregnancy, along with the birth of my baby.

My birth didn't go exactly to plan, but the hypnobirthing techniques I learned kept me calm throughout and it was still such a positive experience. I still use the techniques to help deal with day to day stress and find they are hugely beneficial in helping me keep calm amongst the chaos of parenting.

After Josephs birth, I decided I wanted to do my hypnobirthing teacher training to show other women that they can have positive and empowering births! 

I am fortunate enough to have friends who are as passionate about birth as I am and also have done their KG Hypnobirthing training. Together we have created 'Empower: Parenting Consultants' dedicated to supporting and empowering parents.

Hi, I’m Katy. Welcome to BORN READY BABY & congratulations on your pregnancy! Who am I? I’m a hypnobirthing mumma, Communications Professional (so I feel really passionately about the power of words and their ability to make us feel all sorts of things) and a fully qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher. 

I feel so passionately that becoming a parent is beyond wonderful but it can also be completely overwhelming. Anything we can do to make sure that it gets off to the best start possible, the better. So often we’re bombarded with birth “horror stories” (we’ve all heard them) but who is telling us the empowering ones, the stories that make us excited to meet our babies? No women should feel like she has to spend her pregnancy in fear and no couple should feel traumatised by their birth experience. 

Relaxed, friendly & fun, I offer a fresh, straight up, modern approach to hypnobirthing. Life is busy & your time is precious - let's make this both useful & enjoyable!

My name is Abi, I am a mum of two boys and live in the north side of Glasgow. 

Im a qualified social worker, and am passionate about supporting and empowering others. I have been involved in the social care sector for over a decade. 

My family and friends are the most important this to me, but I also love cooking, baking, music and sport.

I was originally recommended hypnobirthing by a friend who is a midwife. I was initially skeptical of it and imagined it being a very alternative "tree hugging" approach. However, I trusted by friend and her opinion and went on the course. After having two very positive births of my own, I know that hypnobirthing works, and can transform your birthing experience. 

Im really excited and honored to be able to support other couples to be able to experience positive births.

I am Janine, or Neen and I have one son Olaf who is my Valentine's baby and coming up to being 3 years old. 

During my pregnancy I used hypnobirthing techniques with great success, and felt informed enough so that when I was speaking to my consultants about gestational diabetes, I was able to ask the right questions to get the best possible birth on the day. 

I have never felt as strong as the day I gave birth and I want all mothers to feel that.   I've always mentored people to help them feel more confident and I now work with mothers throughout all stages of their pregnancy and beyond to help them always feel as empowered as they do on the day they give birth. 

I am finding ways to help parents in this critical stage to help them manage the emotional impact of things like post-natal depression as they step forward into their new role with their new family.

I love seeing how expectant parents can bond, how dads can feel useful in the delivery process, and how mothers can tap into that inner instinct that's just there.  This technique works.
