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.
I’m Megan Rossiter, a student midwife, mother and hypnobirthing practitionerbased 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 an accredited and registered solution focused therapist and clinical hypnotherapist. I live in Surrey with my husband, children and assorted pets. I enjoy walking, singing, reading and unexpectedly thanks to having small children, camping.
Hello! My name is Suzanne. I have been specialising in helping women during their pregnancy for around 20 years. I have been an Osteopath since 2000 and regularly run pregnancy and post partum clinics. I am also qualified as a Paediatric Specialist. I originally came across Hypnobirthing around 15 years ago and when I was pregnant there was no question about whether I would do a hypnobirthing course. It certainly worked for me. Within the first hour of giving birth I said that I would do it all again, straight away! I was full of energy and all ready for my new life as a Mum.
I am very passionate about Families enjoying their start out in life. If you have any reservations or questions I am happy to answer these, please do contact me.
Hello, I'm Anne, mother to one beautiful girl called Esme (hence my chosen company name). I have always wanted to work in healthcare, and after having my daughter I fell in love with the idea of being a midwife. So, I completed a college healthcare diploma and I am currently studying a degree in midwifery at the University of Brighton.
I developed an interest in hypnobirthing and I used techniques during my pregnancy and labour, which I found extremely beneficial. Having completed a KGHypnobirthing course, I am keen to share this gentle and empowering programme. I am extremely passionate about women feeling empowered and in control of their births.
Hello, my name is Sally. Qualifying as a clinical hypnotherapist has led me into many areas of hypnotherapy. Training as a KGHypnobirthing teacher quickly became one very exciting area for me to develop and enjoy.
I have two children and only wish that I had heard of hypnobirthing back then, (fifteen years ago!) to have had a better understanding of the natural birth process and how our bodies work and why would have been wonderfully beneficial.
After the birth of my second child I trained as a childminder which I moved on from as my children got older. Hypnotherapy has given me the privilege of helping people with a vast range of issues and KGHypnobirthing has expanded that privilege to empowering mothers to have gentle and natural births for themselves and their babies. An experience to be treasured.
I am Cranleigh based and also cover the surrounding villages nestled in between Horsham, Guildford and Dorking: Abinger, Albury, Alfold, Broadbridge Heath, Chiddingfold, Coldharbour, Dunsfold, Ewhurst, Forest Green, Godalming, Holmbury, Holmwood, Ockley, Peaslake, Rudgwick, Shalfold, Shamley Green, Sheere, Slinfold, Walliswood, Wonersh, to name a few!
Hi I'm Rachel, a mum, wife and hypnobirthing teacher living in Walton on Thames.
I used hypnobirthing when I gave birth to my son, George and I can honestly say that birthing my baby was the most extraordinary, wonderful and empowering experience of my life. In the weeks and months following the birth I kept re-living the experience in my mind with such fond and positive memories. However, not all my friends feel the same way about their births – so I decided to train as a hypnobirthing teacher so I can help more women to have positive births.

Hi, I'm Sarah, KG hypnobirthing teacher and Mum of two beautiful children, Kobe and Maia.
My love for hypnobirthing came after having my first child, to say I was terrified was an understatement. After hearing so many bad birth stories I was adamant I just could not give birth naturally!
I was then introduced to hypnobirthing, sceptical but intruiged, I needed to find out all I could about this! So after some research, I was surprised to discover that not only is it logical, gentle and evidence based, but also that it works. I felt excited about this, this was exactly what I needed, some positivity. Maybe I would be able to go through labour naturally afterall!
The course was absolutely amazing. Hypnobirthing gave us the power to make informed decisions, along with the tools, skills and knowledge to release our fears and build confidence for birth. We felt truly empowered, feeling in control and completely positive and prepared for whichever journey the birth was to take.
We went on to have a beautiful calm and relaxed birth. Not once, but twice, this is not just luck, this is hypnobirthing.
I just couldnt praise hypnobirthing enough and after preaching to all of my friends and family about it, I felt the only way to share my passion and spread the word about hypnobirthing is to became a hypnobirthing teacher myself. It's amazing to be able to do a job you love.
I originally trained and worked as a secondary school teacher. However, after having my daughter in 2009, I realised how important it is that families have access to heart based support in the antenatal and postnatal periods. I therefore trained as a Craniosacral Therapist who specialises in working with babies, and now work doing craniosacral therapy and teaching hypnobirthing, as well as co-running Alton Baby Centre where we offer a range of pregnancy and baby classes.
t is my mission to make as many women in Surrey, Kent and South London (and their partners) feel amazing in pregnancy, support them in preparing for an amazing birth and keep that support going once they begin the crazy world of parenthood!

I work with many other fantastic professionals in Surrey and beyond, and am able to advise on doulas, Pregnancy yoga and Pilates, aromatherapy, reflexology, physiotherapy and osteopathy, pregnancy and birth photographers as well as other practitioners.
I am a full spectrum doula. I provide birth and postnatal doula support

I am trained to give Ayurvedic yoga massage(AYM)

I suffered with postnatal depression with my first child for many many years after the birth. Although postnatal depression seems more commonly spoken about now, it wasnt when i had it and that experience made me passionate to help other women so no woman feels unsupported or alone in their journey to motherhood........A doula was born.
I breastfed all of my three children however struggled with my first two children due to lack of support. I was privileged recently to shadow a community midwife and help run co-ordinate her breastfeeding clinic. Hands on experience gave me an insight on the variety of different journeys mothers and their families face in breastfeeding.
Being a doula allows me to support women 1-2-1 whether its during pregnacy,birth or postnatally as women centred care is primary for me.
I have a clean drivers licence and cover all parts of London and out of London. If your not sure contact me. Ask me anything.......Always happy to help

Hi! I'm Liz Whitehead. I live in Lower Sunbury in Surrey with my husband Jonathan and son Alexander.
My experience with Hypnobirthing began long before giving birth - when I was actually 15 years old. Without knowing it, I used many of the Hypnobirthing techniques to over come the devastating side effects of chemotherapy. It was during treatment that I really started to appreciate the power of the mind. When I was diagnosed with cancer I underwent a rigorous regime of chemotherapy and radiotherapy and had pretty major surgery. It was at this point in my life I learnt how to use visualisations and positive mantras to aid my recovery. It really helped me maintain a positive attitude when things got tough.
I got through the whole ordeal in 2002 and went on to study and qualify as an RE teacher which I am still doing today.
Jonathan and I fell pregnant in 2015 after an unfortunate miscarriage and I knew straight away that visualisations, relaxation techniques and positive mantras were, once again, the way forward when approaching child birth.
I had heard about Hypnobirthing through numerous friends and after the 20 week scan immediately signed us up on a course. It turned out to be the best decision I have ever made. Not only was our birth calm and comfortable, I felt in complete control and actually enjoyed the whole experience.
Our son Alexander was born in the water with the lights down low and my mantras on repeat without the need for any pain relief. Afterwards I felt so incredibly proud of myself. I was empowered by the whole experience and I want to share that empowerment with all of you too.
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.
