Hypnobirthing Surrey - Teachers' Directory
I’m Megan Rossiter, a student midwife, mother and hypnobirthing practitionerI'm based in Surrey, covering areas including Thames Diton, Cobham, Esher, Surbiton, Molesey, Teddington, Kingston, Hampton and beyond.
My love for all things birthing came long before I discovered hypnobirthing, and I began my midwifery training in 2015. On this journey, I’ve been lucky enough to support many women through labour and birthing their babies, so when it came to giving birth myself I felt pretty prepared, right? Wrong!
I had an in depth understanding of the mechanisms of birth, hospital protocols and medical procedures, but I needed a way of understanding me. This body, this baby! WE had never done this before. That’s when a friend introduced us to hypnobirthing! And it changed me! As a mother, as a student midwife, as a person!
The course was amazing. Within just a few sessions, and some practice at home, I was able to relax, more deeply than I ever had before (which was welcomed during a very difficult pregnancy). My partner felt involved and the three of us felt connected (Me, Hubby and the Baby that is!). We were thrown one complexity after the other, and the prospect of ‘induction’ loomed over us. Hypnobirthing gave us the power to make informed, thought through decisions, to get the most out of our care providers and access safe, but personalised care. The glorious home birth plans we had made went out of the window, but thanks to hypnobirthing, we took everything thrown at us in our stride, and went on to have a calm, connected, beautiful birth! I would do it again tomorrow.
(Now, please excuse the preaching, but I hope you will feel the same after your birth too). WHY, I thought to myself, aren’t all women doing this?! Why isn’t this the FIRST thing they mention to you at your midwife appointments? Why is it still presented as some sort of hippy fad? Since then, it has been my mission to make birth positive, powerful and (dare I say it) enjoyable for new mums and families everywhere!
So, if you're ready to make your dream birth a reality, please get in touch!
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 beautiful, calm and empowering experience for her, 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 Katie, mum of 2, Midwife, Hypnobirthing practioner, feminist and level 10 tea maker! Having used hypnobirthing as antenatal education with my 2nd child and having seen women gently and calmly birthing their babies I decided I should train as a KGH teacher as I believe all women should have access to hypnobirthing as part of their antenatal education!
Hello, congratulations on your pregnancy!
I have taught hundreds of women ‘how to’ use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birth.
My journey began back in 2008 when I started teaching pregnancy yoga in the heart of London. The class was so popular and the mums-to-be seemed so stressed I decided to add some hypnobirthing techniques. I was so impressed with the results this naturally led me to offering couples the full hypnobirthing course.
Today I enjoy running classes and courses in London Waterloo and South Croydon.
If you are looking to enjoy your pregnancy and prepare for a calm and confident birth – however it shows up – Joyful Body Birth is for you.
I look forward to welcoming you.

I know how important it is for women to feel informed, loved and supported during her pregnancy and then on into her labour and birth. Whether it be her first or tenth baby, whether her birth is a planned c-section or home-birth, the way she is supported and nurtured should not differ, that is, and always has been my approach to being alongside a woman during this miraculous time.

I and you will have the benefit of my midwifery experience, which is there to enhance the wonderful training I have experienced during my KGHypnobirthing course.

I am an experienced midwife, currently working within a leading London NHS Trust as a midwifery matron, having trained as a registered nurse in 1979 and then as a midwife in 1984. I have worked in all areas of midwifery having been 'with women' from the North East of England, down to the Isle of Wight over the years - embracing the recommendations outlined within 'changing childbirth' back in 1993 to assisting with 'better births' which aims to improve the outcomes of maternity services today. I has been planning to set up my own antenatal busisness for several years and this dream was finally realised in April 2019.
I have six children myself and beleive that we are a clsoe family. Together we decided upon the idea of extending the antenatal class idea to incorporporate a whole lifestyle package for new parents with their babies. we want to enable women to recognise how empowering pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood can be and give them everything together within one package. OUr members are able to socialise, learn, exercise and best of all relax together.
Our package options benefit from KGH hypnobirthing, midwife led support, social events, first aid courses, baby courses, discounted spa sessions to phot shoots.
We have worked hard to think of most things and look forward to welcoming you, your birth partners and your new family to the underwood baby academy.
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 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.
Every one of our registered practitioners has been carefully assessed to ensure they fulfil our entry requirements, with extensive experience of teaching at least one of the recognised hypnobirthing methods.
Our Core Principles
Our members have signed up to our code of conduct, which ensures they are committed to enhancing birthing for mothers through natural childbirth, by teaching good quality practices. In addition, they work with us to promote hypnobirthing techniques in order to raise awareness of their effectiveness in achieving a relaxed birth for both mother and child.
