Hypnobirthing Wales - Teachers' Directory
I am anaesthetic midwife, which basically means that I am a nurse specialist in anaesthesia and a current student of midwifery. I have been calming mothers in the most terrifying situations of their lives for years, and have also worked with newborn babies and young children going through serious medical and surgical rough patches. For you, this translates as a mountain of practical knowledge and experience to help guide you and open up options for you and your birth. As a hypnobirthing teacher, I won't be invoking my medical training, but I use my skills and lived experience to deliver a pragmatic, gentle, eveidence-based and empowering course. I know that knowledge is power and I will pass mine on to you by the bucketload; and I have witnessed just how paralyzing fear can be, especially in childbirth, so I will teach you how to step out of anxieties, how to keep yourself calm (and each other!) and find your inner strength to discover just how much you are capable of. Questions and skeptics and enthusiasm are all welcome!
I’m Lisa .. Mother of four, Doula, KGHypnobirthing practitionerband founder of birth roots. I offer individualised, nurturing care as one journeys towards and through birth into their post-partum. It’s a joy and honour to walk with and bear witness to women’s power and to support their choices, whatever they may be. . I have no particular focus on one type or place of birth, simply the birth that is right for you, one that aligns with your presenting and evolving needs and desires. My care for women over the maternal year begins by providing support antenatally through to birth and into the postnatal period. This phase, termed the fourth trimester, can often be overlooked, but time taken here always benefits the new Mother, and in turn the whole family. By Mothering the Mother, through nurturing and nourishing care, it allows her to rest and recover, while gently transitioning into her new role, while the whole family adjust to their new rhythm of life. Complementing this I am a Holisitc Therapist, offering Reflexology, Massage and Aromatherapy; for those choosing to enhance their holistic wellbeing. I am also a Placenta Remedies Specialist, working for women who choose to include their placenta as part of their post partum healing, in the form of encapsulation, tincture, essence and homeopathic remedies. Additionally I hold skills in Rebozo, Homeopathy and Acupressure for childbirth, while crafting bespoke Mother Blessing ceremonies and Closing the Bones ceremony, which takes place post partum. My experience personally, and with the clients I support, is that when a woman understands the processes of birth and all the choices available to her within this, receives respectful and compassionate care, she is then better able to emerge powerful, joyful and intact because birth has been positively transformational. This matters to me because women are important, our needs are important, birth is important, Motherhood is important. I admin our local positive birth group, holding monthly birth circles too, nestled here in the Vale of Glamorgan.
As a praticing midwife for more than 15 years, I have a passion for pregnancy and birth. I believe that birth is a positive life changing experience that should be without pain or fear. Women instinctly know to trust their body and birth their baby easily and naturally. Footsteps courses are designed to support women through pregnancy and birth to offer the skills and knowledge to birth in the way they choose, uninterupted, unobserved in a birth enivorment of love and psoitivity. I am also a qaulifed antenatal and postnatal personal trainer, and incorporate movement for pregnancy and birth into all of my courses.

Hi! My name is Eleanor Gladwyn. I'm a clincial hypnotherapist and proud to be a KGHypnobirthing teacher in the Torfaen and Blaenau Gwent area.
I have witnessed the power of the mind through my experiences with hypnotherapy and believe that Hypnobirthing can enable women and their partners to have a positve birth experience.
My love for Hypnobirthing started almost six years ago when I was pregnant with my first daughter; as there were no classes in my area I bought ‘The Hypnobirthing Book’ and taught myself. Now, having experienced two beautiful natural births I am passionate about helping other women achieve the best possible birthing experience. My drive to help other women is deeply rooted and I feel a responsibility to pass on the knowledge I have gained through KGHypnobirthing to others. I have been told that my enthusiasm for Hypnobirthing is infectious and I love helping future mothers and fathers at such an important and wonderful time for them.
I started Hypnobirth Mamas to offer support, community and positivity to pregnant women and their partners, all things I feel very passionately about.
I am mother to Ella, Indigo and Freya and have used Hypnobirthing with all my pregnancies and births. I was blown away when I attended a Hypnobirthing course during my pregnancy with Ella - I felt permission, for the first time in my life, to have a calm, quiet and natural birth. I still use the breathing techniques and meditations to help me parent calmly when things are not calm.
I have always worked in health services; from a women’s sexual health charity in Guatemala to the Department of Health in London. What I love about teaching Hypnobirthing is that one course changes the story of a birth; whether it’s a couple who feel clearer about where they want to give birth or a mother feeling calm for the first time during her second pregnancy, being part of that change is a real privilege.
During my first pregnancy, I felt this amazing empowerment and connection with my body, my partner and my child. The birth experience was intense and powerful and I found the pain manageable and natural. I am so proud to share my positive birth story with whoever wants to listen (and some who have no choice!). I have KGHypnobirthing to thank for this!
Since becoming a parent and having such an empowering birth, I became a bit obsessed with Hypnobirthing and felt the overwhelming need to share my experience and knowledge to help as many parents as possible! I qualified as a Hypnobirthing teacher in 2018, trained by KGHypnobirthing the original UK Hypnobirthing and the teacher training course is Royal College of Midwives accredited.
I currently live and work in Hertfordshire and work with families across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and also in my home town of Aberystwyth, West Wales.
Hello! I'm Jessica, mum to a beautiful baby boy and a KGHypnobirthing teacher. When I became pregnant, I was particularly anxious about giving birth. Once I heard the magic word 'hypnobirthing' I clung onto the possibility of having a positive birth experience. After researching, I was amazed by the whole concept, and from then on, I put all my energy into learning and practicing the KGH method. Five months later, I had the most incredible experience of my life. My baby came into the world with a wonderful water birth in my local birth centre. Ever since, I have been passionate about educating women about the physiology of pregnancy, labour and birth, and helping them to understand their choices, so that they can achieve the birth that is right for them and their baby.
