Hypnobirthing Suffolk - Teachers' Directory
My name is Megan and I am a qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher. I have three children of my own and a grandson. I am very passionate about natural birth and helping women to achieve the best birthing journey they can.
I have been working in maternity services in the NHS since 2011, and am currently working as a maternity Support worker in the community setting. This is a supporting role to the midwives, and involves visiting new parents at home with their new-born babies. I also run breast feeding workshops and help in antenatal clinics. I have also been involved in the administration side of the hypnobirthing courses offered by the Trust. In this role I became more aware of hypnobirthing and the benefits to parents and babies, both during labour and afterwards. I saw the feedback from mums and midwives and was blown away by the profound effects that hypnobirthing had. It gave me an understanding of how knowledge and relaxation techniques combined can give the best preparation for labour and birth. I want all pregnant women to have the opportunity to attend hypnobirthing courses, and am passionate about what I teach.
Hypnobirthing can give you the tools as a couple to achieve the best birth whatever the circumstances. Hypnobirthing is about maintaining control, knowledge, focus, and staying calm to achieve the best birth for you.
Hi. I'm Verity, a lawyer, birth aficionado and mum of two boys (and therefore proud owner of a terrifying number of toy cars, trains, tractors and diggers...)
After a difficult birth with my first baby, I did a hypnobirthing course and had an absolutely magical homebirth with baby number two with no pain relief apart from a birthing pool and a bit of swearing at my husband. And all this was despite being an absolute cynic and having a hefty 9lb 1 baby.
Before having children my take on giving birth was pretty accurately summed up by Miranda from Sex and the City: "When this gets going, don't let anyone get all cheerleadery on me. I don't want any of that, you can do it, push push" And actually I still have that view as with hypnobirthing YOU are your own cheerleader and doing a hypnobirthing course will equip you with all the tools you need to know that you CAN do it (without any overzealous support from the sidelines).
I consider it an immense privilege to empower women to have the best birth possible for them.
So if you want a no-nonsense course which gives you and your birth partner the facts about birth and the options open to you and think that I would be a good fit for you then get in touch. (And if your birth partner needs any encouragement then the good news is that the course I run from my home is only 150 yards from a pub...)
I cover the North Essex/Suffolk region including:

I have two beautiful monkeys of my own (both of the girlie kind), and both of my births were very different. The latter was how I imagined birth should be, and was the birth which was totally instinctive, totally intuitive, and yes, using elements of hypnobirthing.
As a holistic therapist, I felt a need to completely support women during pregnancy and birth, as I felt it such an important message and awareness to share, based on my own experiences and since then, very much in my work with the women I support.
My name is Natalie and I am a mum to two little boys. I am passionate about hypnobirthing and am keen to spread the word of the benefit it provides both mothers and partners in the lead up to and during labour.
The preparation my husband and I did through hypnobirthing enbled us to stay in control during my labours and provided us with the most wonderful birthing experiences despite them not taking the path we had originally hoped and planned for. We would not change them for the world!
I am also a physiotherapist and feel the benefits of hypnobirthing don't only reflect on more positive birth experiences but also on postnatal recovery with evidence showing less incidence of interventions in hypnobirthing mothers.
I would love to support you on your KG Hypnobirthing journey.
Prior to becoming a passionate KGH Teacher, I worked for a sub-Saharan African girls' education NGO. I have also been a Peer Supporter for Mind mental health charity and a teaching volunteer for school children.
I was a loving Doula to some of my closest friends, before becoming a professional Doula, which led me to discovering the awesome effect Hypnobirthing has on labouring women, their birth partners and their babies. I knew I had to teach it!
My approach is flexible, and based on the premise that no two women are the same, no two births are the same and no two babies are the same, therefore individualsed care and utmost respect for the pregnant person are paramount.
I live happily in Bury St Edmunds with my partner.
