Hypnobirthing Tyne & Wear - Teachers' Directory
My name is Maddy and I have worked as a midwife for over 25 years. I led the very popular Parent Education service in Newcastle from 2010 until 2017, when I took early retirement. Since retiring I have not lost my passion for enabling women and their partners in their childbirth journey so have returned to midwifery part time. I have a BSc Hons in Midwifery Sciences and am also a qualified teacher of adults (PGCE). I have spent many hours teaching in peoples homes and in classroom settings in order to provide enough information for them to make considered choices. I now teach hypnobirthing as I truly believe in the process and have seen the benefits first hand. Women have used the techniques of focus and relaxation for many years and in many cultures across the world and I love the fact we now have this harnessed into recognised programmes such as KGHypnobirthing. I am privileged to have worked as a midwife for so long and to be able to support so many people in their journey.
I'm Liz. I have been working as a Midwife within NHS hospital settings since 2013 and have a vast range of experiences, skills and in depth knowledge that I am enthusiastic to share. I do some antenatal education/parent craft sporadically within my NHS role but I am passionate about sharing knowedge, and believe in providing better quality, individualised classes - hence the creation of New Arrivals.
Informed choice is essential - but what does this mean? And what does this mean for you? I believe in teaching a thorough and comprehensive range of classes, which can be tailored to your specific needs. Regardless of the type of birth you may plan for, and what type of birth happens on the day, I believe you should feel empowered, informed and confident in your skills and your choices.
I offer one to one classes in your home and group classes. I work across Northumberland, Newcastle and Gateshead and occaisionally further afield! I have also taught internationally via video calls.
I have a passion for helping parents to release their fears and build their confidence and knowledge around the birth of their baby/babies in order that they may achieve the most positive experience for themselves and their little one(s). I am also the mother of two fine young men and an enthusiastic Samba drummer!
I'm a dynamic yoga teacher who initially trained in pregnancy yoga purely to feel confident in keeping a pregnant woman safe in my regular yoga classes. However the pregnancy yoga teacher training ignited a flame I didn't even know existed. Half way through the course I realised that my passion was moving in a new direction and that I could see a way to really help women during their pregnancy and birth through movement, meditation, breathing and positive affirmations.
After a period of time teaching pregnancy yoga classes, I realised that although the sessions were helping enormously there was still something missing... every woman who went on to have a wonderful empowered birth had all done HypnoBirthing to some extent. I realised this is what was missing from my teaching. I wanted to be able to provide that missing link to all my students. I completed KG HypnoBirthing teacher training and embarked on this wonderful journey of helping pregnant women believe in their bodies and self hypnotise in order for them to have the best birth possible.
I have had some excellent feedback from HypnoBirthing clients – whatever turn their birth took they remained calm and in control leaving them feeling empowered and positive.
It is such an honour and a privilege to be able to work with women and couples during such an important phase of their lives.
I work with single mums-to-be, same sex couples and mixed sex couples. Whatever your situation HypnoBirthing will help you to achieve a positive birth and I would love to help you on this incredible journey.
