I am a Registered Nurse trained in Aberdeen in 1979.  I have loved my nursing career and all the opportunities it has provided.  I have lived all over the world and I have been fortunate enough to use my nursing qualification to work in lots of interesting different areas, for example, setting up a health screening programme for local Indonesian Mothers to promoting women’s health in Dubai.


I have three children. Born in 1988, 1991, and 1994.  My first was a long drawn out affair which ended in a c-section.  The other two were completely different.  I even enjoyed them, I was calmer and better prepared, I believed in my ability to birth.


I became a Doula in Dubai with Nurturing Birth in 2009.  It was wonderful and fascinating to be part of the birth process and to give support to couples entering parenthood.


I came across hypnobirthing as a doula.  I was lucky enough to support a Mum throughout her birth while she used hypnobirthing.  It was such a calm, orgasmic and empowering experience for her and her partner and her baby, that I decided to become a hypnobirthing teacher.  I have since seen many babies born this way and feel so passionately about spreading the word.


I looked into doing my hypnobirth training with various schools, ie Natal or Marie Mongan but decided Katharine Graves was so much more relevant and would be better based here in the UK.  I have loved the course, the support and have met so many really inspirational people through doing the training.

I'm Elena and a mum to my two happy tots. I came to the world of hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my second one and was looking for a better, more comfortable birth experience. We had taken a hypnobirthing course and it was one of the best decisions of my life. I was struck by how these simple techniques taught in the course could help me to slow down and make my hectic life calmer and easier. Ever since these tools have been my everyday practise.

Pregnant women always caught my attention, especially when I was a little girl. There was something magical and charming in them. And this is so true because if you look at a childbearing and childbirth - it is wonderful. A little cell can develop into a beautiful baby that is a small copy of yourself. How amazing it is!? Every childbirth is truly a miracle!

I strongly believe that pregnancy along with the arrival of a new baby is the most exciting time of our lives (caused by the hormones dancing within the pregnant body) and, of course, the most intense and memorable experiences.

My desire is for everyone to have a positive, calm, enjoyable pregnancy and birth as well as a new life with a new.


So please feel free to contact me

Hi, my name is Gabriella, I’m a mum of two, a fully qualified KGH Hypnobirthing teacher, and founder of Mamanest Hypnobirthing.

I have a diploma in Hypnobirthing with the KG method which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.

When I was pregnant with my first child, me and my husband decided to do a private course that could prepare us in full for the birth.

That was the best decision we could have ever made. Hypnobirthing gave us all the information we needed to be fully prepared and more than anything it had the power to make me feel strong and calm; it gave me knowledge and confidence; my mindset shifted completely from being stressed and scared to being relaxed and positive; my husband was also empowered and felt he had an important role to play. 

The course gave us information about the physiology of birth, made us understand how much the mind and body are connected, how important it is to know that you have a voice when it comes to making decisions and that you can make decisions that are best for you and your baby based on the knowledge that you then have, and the facts that you have learned, and not based on assumptions.

I realised that Hypnobirthing made a great difference for us and our baby; our experience was so positive compared to one of the other couples we knew.

Giving birth doesn’t have to be scary, the worst experience of your life, the most painful thing you’ll ever do, and so on, unfortunately, our society doesn’t help women to feel less anxious about birth, we are surrounded by lots of negativity and disinformation.

This is why I decided to be a Hypnobirthing teacher, I love to help and support women to have a calm and positive mindset, to have confidence in their bodies, to have the knowledge to make the right decisions, and ultimately to achieve a positive birth experience.

I offer a completely free consultation to all couples.

Hello, my name is Dariya and apart from hypnobirthing, I teach Dreambirth Imagery techniques for conception, labour, birth and parenting. I have a background in teaching dance, yoga and meditation. I still teach the last too. I have always been passionate about everything related with the power of the mind&body. I found about hypnobirthing when I got pregnant with my first baby and just thought It would be too selfish not to share it with other women. It did make a profound difference in my nearly 48 hour long labor and thanks to the hypnobirthing techniques and knowledge I managed to have a natural and pleasant birth. My second birth though was an incredible water homebirth which changed completely the way I teach and help women. I am absolutely in love with this method as it provides a complete antenatal education and gives you the tools to have the best possible natural birth. After the course, you will be full of confidence and trust in the power of your own body to birth your baby beautifully and joyfully. An experience that will empower you for the rest of your life.

My name is Lesley and I live in Haslemere, Surrey .  

Before I had children I wanted to work in the neonatal world and in 2008, when my children were old enough,  I enrolled onto an Access to Nursing & Health Professions course at Guildford College, my aim was to become a midwife but my circumstances changed and that was no longer an option for me.   

When I heard about Doulas for the first time (after I finished my Access course in 2010) I did some research into the role  of a Birth Doula and  felt the ethos sat very comfortably with my own belief that childbirth is a natural process which, given the right  tools and emotional suport, means it is possible for women to come through their own birth experience with precious memories of a primitive and wonderful experience to treasure all their lives.

As a qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher I teach pregnant couples how to give themselves the best chance of the birth experience they are hoping for .  The sense of empowerment for a woman who understands what is happening  and why to her body in pregnancy, labour and birth, can be amazing and should be available to all women.  

Being invited onto a couple's journey into parenthood is an amazing privilege and  I can offer you support in the form of  practical help, emotional support (you may need both in varying amounts) and hypnobirthing techniques that can be used as coping skills in other potentially stressful life situations throughout  your life.  I offer non-judgemental up to date signposting during the antental, birth and immediate post-natal period, as you adjust to your beautiful new addition.

Firstly, congratulations on your pregnancy! I am an experienced midwife, mother to three and co-founder of Surrey and Sussex Midwives who specialises in birth education and KG Hypnobirthing. If you are looking for antenatal classes and support with a local midwife and an opportunity to meet other parents to be in your area, then I would love to hear from you.

After qualifying with a first class honours degree from the University of Bedfordshire in 2010 I spent my first year working in a small district hospital before venturing out to a busier maternity unit. Here, I worked for a period of time on the maternity unit before becoming a community midwife in 2012. During my time at that hospital, I chose to set up my own birth and parenthood course. I provided this to the women in my care and case loaded the families that were choosing to have their babies at home. 

I qualified as a Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing Teacher in 2013. I admit I was a bit of a sceptic (along with most people who hear the term hypnobirth) but was astounded at how much sense it made, and how simple the techniques were.

In 2014, I moved to another NHS trust in Surrey where I worked as a community midwife before becoming a member of a fantastic case loading home birth team.

I have experience in all aspects of midwifery, from supporting women with complex pregnancies and births in the community and hospital setting, to providing continuity of care to women and their families choosing to have their babies at home. I also have a lot of local knowledge of additional support available during pregnancy and postnatally with your baby, gained through being a local midwife, but also a mum too!  

Moving to the countryside was the best thing we did! Shortly after joining the home birth team my husband and I were blessed with the arrival of our daughter Ada, and then eleven months later (believe those midwives when they say you can fall pregnant when you are exclusively breast feeding), Eleanor came into the world. If we weren't busy enough, we decided to have another baby, and this year and our beautiful baby boy, Rupert arrived at the beginning of 2019.  Hypnobirthing was an invaluable technique for my pregnancies and births. I felt calm and in control, and confident that my body and baby knew what they were doing. My partner found the course incredibly useful, and felt prepared and at ease during the whole pregnancy and birth.  


It's been a whirlwind couple of years, but I wouldn't change a second. I feel privileged to be a midwife and now a mother and am looking forward to supporting you and your family through your pregnancy and birth.

I understand that being pregnant is a very special time of our lives, and I am so happy to be able to help families to feel confident and supported throughout their journey. 

Hypnobirthing is really a fantastic way to prepare with, and my experience so far is that it has a positive effect on labour and birth every time. I read more and more positive birth stories from my lovely couples who did Hypnobirthing with me, and I hope to receive loads more in the future.

I also work as a fitness professional, so I am familiar with motivating people, and help them to achieve their goals.

I hope I will see you in my class one day, and we can work together to achieve that beautiful birth you have dreamt of.

Warm wishes,

Hypnobirthing Surrey

Hypnobirthing is a form of natural childbirth which involves training expectant mothers how to use effective hypnosis techniques as part of a more calm and relaxed birth for them and their child.  We believe that this gives you, as a mother, more peace of mind over your birthing, and also gives your birthing partner much more involvement in the birth in a very positive way.

KG Hypobirthing

KG Hypnobiring is growing, so wherever you are, we hope that you will be able to find one of our practitioners near you.  Here in Surrey, we have members in Farnham, Godalming, Guildford, New Malden and Reigate, so wherever you live in the county, someone local should be able to give you support and training in hypnobirthing techniques for the birth of your baby.
