Hypnobirthing Somerset - Teachers' Directory
I'm an experienced psychologist and Hypnobirthing mum of 3 with personal experience of birthing, both with and without hypnobirthing training.
I built my hypnobirthing practice following ten years plus NHS experience of course facilitation, specialising in CBT and Mindfulness based groups for all types of anxiety.
I can work with parent pairs, individual parents or with groups of parents and birth partners to overcome past experiences, fears and phobias and build confidence in your personal choices and unique birth preferences.
Please take a look at my website for detailed information about my skills and practice.
IT ALL STARTED WHEN…I became pregnant with our very own bubba, we felt wonderfully blessed, but very unprepared.
Although I knew logically my body could handle this process, my mind still ruminated with the where’s, why’s, what ifs and how the hecks? Or what I now call the ‘unhelpfuls’!So my search began to find the right support.
That is when I came across KGHypnobirthing and unbeknown to me this is where my journey into becoming one would begin.......
Whilst reflecting on my own experince using KGH, it seemed a natural path for me to take to become a KGH teacher.So I diverted my personal training and massage therapy business towards pre and post natal wellbeing care. Combining all of my years of knowledge and experience to empower other women and their families achieve healthy , active pregnancies and calm, confident births.
Hi I’m Laura - psychology graduate, CBT & hypnobirthing instructor, and mum to one lovely little boy!
During my six years delivering CBT courses I helped many overcome their anxieties through a combination of tools, relaxation techniques and empowering knowledge.
Then I had my son, and this is when my passion for pregnancy and birth began. Like most mums-to-be I was daunted by the thought of giving birth and was recommended hypnobirthing. This led me to experience an empowering birth which left me in awe of the whole process and what our bodies can achieve.
I quickly realised that I could go on to support couples in their journeys to the positive births which they deserve, just like I’d had.
I believe every woman should be able to enjoy childbirth for what it is, an amazing experience, and in the calmest, safest way possible.
My name is Dr Katherine Fisher and I have spent most of the last decade working with patients to overcome fears in a clinical setting, understanding how essential this is to improve patient experience, comfort and wellbeing. When I was catapulted into motherhood I could never have appreciated just how fundamental releasing fear around childbirth is in order to have the positive birth experiences parents want and deserve. Training your mind to enhance, rather than hijack your experience of birth is transformative. Hypnobirthing is often quicker, calmer and requires less pain relief.
Birth is such a significant event in the mother and baby’s life. I do this work because I wholeheartedly feel passionate to help parents experience the difference hypnobirthing can make. It’s my absolute privilege to help support parents on this journey into parenthood and equip them with the tools and knowledge to make the birth they want more possible.
Together we will make calm, empowering births the norm not the exception.
Usually running classes across Somerset and Dorset, but now accessible globally through live virtual courses.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or enquiries, I would love to hear from you!
As a midwife passionate in labour and birth I have completed my KGHypnobirthing teacher training in March 2020. I am now setting up my new business Mindful Midwife Hypnobirthing to support the women of Somerset and the wider hours in their birth preparation through KGH.
All our teachers have been trained in KG Hypnobirthing and reached a level of skill and expertise we expect from our teachers. Each teacher is given an assessment by us to ensure their suitability and professionalism.
All our teachers subscribe to our core ethics, promoting good practice in the teaching and promotion of natural birthing techniques. They also commit themselves to raising awareness of and knowledge about hypnobirthing and natural childbirth. This is to help broaden general understanding and enable knowledge of its effectiveness to reach a wider audience, particularly expecting mothers.
The use of hypnobirthing as an effective method for giving birth is increasing as medical professionals and mothers are appreciating its benefits, not only for the mother but for the baby as well.
