Hypnobirthing Aberdeen - Teachers' Directory
I'm a full time mum of two wonderful wee people, hypnobirthing teacher and a part-time geophysicist.
I'm from south west Scotland but have been in Aberdeenshire for almost 10years, I love it here and my kids do too.
I found hypnobirthing during my first pregnancy through a wonderful yoga class and there's been no going back ever since. It made such a difference to both of my births that I felt compelled to train and allow more women to be able to experience a calm, relaxed birth. I love teaching hypnobirthing and sharing my passion for positive birth with other mums locally. Just get in touch if you'd like to know more about the classes available, I'm always happy to chat Hypnobirthing!
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.
When I moved to Scotland and became pregnant with our first born I stumbled across hypnoses and relaxation as a type of pain relief during labour and birth. The folder I was reading was very detailed; however on this bit there was only one line of information. I decided to look into it and discovered something called ‘hypnobirthing’. It was like a whole new world that suddenly opened its doors for me. It was amazing! Suddenly women could give birth! I could give birth! I wasn’t just an illness that had to be subjected to protocols and checklists. No, I was a woman and this is what women do; give birth to our next generation. Pieces were falling together and I was starting to understand there is a different way to give birth. Having a degree in Earth Science and being specialised in human behaviour in extreme circumstances, I am fully aware of the cultural believes we all have and ‘suffer’ from. But, I wasn’t aware that I was part of such a big one myself: birth is painful and dangerous. The more I read, the more I understood. Yes, there are risk of being pregnant and giving birth, but being alive and doing things in the mean time always caries a risk, of course. However, that birth is meant to be painful wasn’t always one of them. I kept reading more and more reports of women that experienced an amazing, powerful, and in some of those cases pain free birth. I know, right?! I gave birth in May 2014 to a lovely little girl Hannah using the hypnobirthing techniques. It was a wonderful and powerful experience. It was so amazing I decided to become a teacher so I could share this knowledge with women around me who deserve, just like me, this option for her birth experience. I have been teaching in many fields over the past decade, therefore I can easily switch between different teaching methods to fit different needs. Being Dutch born I can also teach classes in Dutch if that is preferred. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am here to help. Susanne Grant BSc MA DipHB(KG)
My name is Helen and I am the mother to two amazing children; Jacob aged 2 and a half and Eve aged 1. I discovered hypnobirthing whilst pregnant with Eve and the experience changed my life! All of the anxiety, fear and pain I had experienced whilst in labour with Jacob was completely reversed during my labour with Eve; which was calm, controlled with no need for pain-relief, thanks to hypnobirthing. As a result she was born a calm, alert baby who slept and fed brilliantly.
I also have a first class honours degree in pharmacy and a postgraduate certificate in clinical education, and have been practising as a qualified pharmacist since 2003. Being a mum, with firsthand experience of hypnobirhting, as well as working in the medical profession gives me a unique perspective which mothers find very reassuring.
Having realised it is possible to achieve the birth of your dreams I am committed to helping other women have the wonderful experience they deserve too! Each baby is special so whether it’s your first, second or fifth baby it’s a magical moment when your little one arrives.
