Hypnobirthing Surrey - Teachers' Directory
Hi, I’m Rachel, founder of Barefoot Birthing. Wife to an arsenal supporter, mum to an inquisitive daughter and a sleep-thief son (born 2017 by IVF and 2018). I'm a positive birth advocate, and a lover of lattes, music festivals, Grey’s Anatomy, a murder mystery, my slow-growing art collection, Leonardo DiCaprio, and a good softplay cafe (for my sanity).
My passion and deep-down belly-fire to share the incredibly logical, profound, and life-changing concept of Hypnobirthing led me to completing the KGH Teacher Training and the creation of Barefoot Birthing. I believe every new mum (whether it be your first or fifth baby) deserves to feel proud, healthy, empowered, and like the super-fricking-hero that she is. The Barefoot Birthing course will help you achieve this in a relaxed, friendly, open-minded, and hopefully funny (at times) atmosphere. I understand parents want to feel knowledgeable, prepared, and confident for labour and birth, and that is exactly what the Barefoot Birthing course is designed to do.
I am a mother of two young children (born 2017 and 2018), owner of Well & Good studio in Godalming and an international events professional. Having worked with large teams across the world, I pride myself on being able to relate and engage with widely varying groups of people. My approach to teaching is one of honest relatability. There is nothing you can ask me to which I won't give you an honest answer. Rest assured, though, that I will always approach any subject matter with tact and empathy. Born in Liverpool and raised in Suffolk, studying in Leeds, then travelling the world for work - I have always been on the move but I have spent the last few years based in leafy Surrey, where I plan to bring up my two young children.

When I fell pregnant in 2017 with my firstborn son, I was determined to try and make the most of those precious 40 weeks and to rejoice in the amazing miracle my body was creating. At about 13 weeks pregnant I came across The Positive Birth Book by Milli Hill (included as part of all Magnificent Mama courses) and it genuinely changed my life. I read it cover to cover and from this point on, had a completely different outlook on my pregnancy and birth. My thoughts on my birth plan completely changed, I became very curious about Hypnobirthing and the prospect of an enjoyable birth, and I was determined to learn more. I undertook a Hypnobirthing class and it confirmed that this was the route I wanted to take. For the first time, I felt excited about giving birth. I felt in awe of what my body could do, I felt confident! My first choice was no longer a birth that was 'calm' because I was full of drugs. I now wanted a connected and positive birth, managed only by the power of my mind and body. My birth, my choices.
I became as informed as I could, I practised my Hypnobirthing techniques as often as possible and when my labour started I was so happy and excited! I went on to have a wonderful, calm birth experience and I'm sure that Hypnobirthing played a huge part in this. I’m eternally grateful that I had the opportunity to learn these invaluable techniques and I’m now choosing to spend my life on a mission to help other pregnant women achieve the best birth for them.
I am a hypnobirthing mum on a mission to help parents achieve the most positive, calm and empowering birth for their baby.
I first learnt about KGHypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my first baby and subsequently went on to have a wonderfully calm, quick and empowering birth.
I was amazed at how powerful and effective hypnobirthing had been for me and went on to tell as many people as possible about it. It was then I realised how passionately I felt about helping others have positive birth experience too and just 12 weeks after my daughter was born I decided to become a fully qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher.
Congratulations on being pregnant mama! It’s such an exciting time.
My name is Rachel and I founded Hey Mama Hypnobirthing because I believe every woman should give birth feeling happy and proud of what her body and baby have achieved. My background in Psychology has given me an understanding of how the mind and body work together.
Why choose Hey Mama Hypnobirthing Co.?
I was sceptical that it could actually have a profound effect on my birth, but it did. My waters broke 2 days before he was due after listening to a relaxation MP3 and talking to him, convincing him that it was perfectly safe to come. After 6 hours and no contractions I put on the same MP3 and yup you guessed it my contractions started. Safe to say 12 hours later once he was born I was amazed and overwhelmed with positive feelings towards my body and my baby. It was a great start to mamahood!

I am a dedicated mother to a daughter of 8 years and twins, boy/girl of 3 years.
I am a pro at IVF, 6 cycles in, mine were all conceived via IVF and so would love to work with fellow IVF couples along my teaching journey.
I owned my own pre-school for 15 years, so my background prior to this has always been children, I was an Early Years Professional and SENCO for many years.
My focus, professionally, is now on birth and babies, however I remain in my Early Years role at home with my twins.
I like the fact that the couples I teach Hypnobirthing to now come back to me for baby massage. I get to meet the beautiful babies, whose parents I helped prepare, to bring them into the world.
I look forward to helping couples release their fear and go into birthing their child with the tools they need to be calm and confident.
I’m Kara Cox. Producer by day and Hypnobirthing teacher by night. Mother of two hypno-babies.
The mere mention of pregnancy and birth used to make me break out in a cold sweat. That was before I stumbled upon this rather mystical sounding hypnobirthing. I did the course. Did LOTS of practise. The rest is history.
Baby number one was a swift, calm, hospital hypnobirth. Baby number two was a mind-blowing breech home birth. Thanks to hypnobirthing I’ve turned my biggest fears into my greatest achievements and I would LOVE to help you do the same.
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.
