I am an ex midwife/nurse, trained therapist and Hypnotherapist who is passionate about Hypnobirthing. I am a mum with 3 grown up children and have 6 grandchildren.

Both my daughters used Hypnobirthing ( taught by me!) and found it extremely beneficial in all their pregnancies and births.  After many years working as a Senior Therapist and a Hypnotherapist in a local University I now  run  a full time private practise.

I can also be found as a practitioner on the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy website Registration number 045310.

However, I enjoy teaching hypnobirthing too and have had much positive feed back from mums and dads I have worked with over the last 8 or so years. I would be happy to meet to discuss your requirements either in person, over the telephone, Zoom or Skype.

Originally trained as a counsellor, I worked with young people with addiction and later qualified as a secondary school teacher. During this time I also learned to meditate and soon began to pass on this skill to others; I have now been teaching meditation for almost thirty years. Having used a form of hypnobirthing for my second and third births, and to support my own daughter in the birth of her baby, I wanted to combine this knowledge with my knowledge of relaxation and mindfulness techniques to support pregnant women further.  I completed the KGHypnobirthing course to enable me to offer this specialist technique with the antenatal element which I believe so strongly is crucial to empowering women in taking control of their births.

Hi I'm Charley!! I am a qualified midwife, KG Hypnobirthing teacher, wife and mum to Ffion.  I live in Swansea, South Wales and here is a little more about me and how I got to where I am today.

 

I have always been passionate about helping and supporting people. I have worked in a variety of roles over the years, but one thing that they all have in common is that working with and helping people has always been my main drive and passion in life. I have previously worked with children which led me to complete my BSc in Early Childhood Studies back in 2012. This degree covered aspects of pregnancy and midwifery which had always been of interest to me. My passion and interests in all aspects of pregnancy, labour, birth, breastfeeding and the early days with a newborn grew. This passion led me to undertake another degree and I qualified as a registered midwife in 2016. I have had the absolute privilege of supporting many families during my 3 years of training and also in the years since I qualified. My passion for supporting, empowering and educating families during these special and emotional periods continues to grow.

 

Back in 2018, I became a mum myself to my beautiful daughter Ffion. Becoming a mum to Ffion has changed my life in many ways. Not only have I had to adjust to becoming a mum, but Ffion was born with a rare congenital heart condition (hypoplastic left heart syndrome). This has resulted in numerous hospital stays and her undergoing 2 open-heart surgeries with more to come in the future. Being a midwife with a medical background has certainly helped in some ways, but I don't think anything can truly prepare you for having a baby with complex needs. Ffions condition has definitely had a big impact on my work as it has emphasised the importance of having access to knowledgeable and supportive health carers.

Due to Ffion's heart condition making her clinically vulnerable, during the current pandemic I have been unable to work as a midwife as I've been unable to risk her health by working in the hospital on the front line. This time has however provided me with the opportunity to pursue another of my passions - hypnobirthing.

Many of the skills and techniques used in hypnobirthing are already adopted by practicing midwives, however, undertaking the KG Hypnobirthing teacher training has provided me with a deeper understanding of the advantages and benefits that hypnobirthing offers to those undertaking a hypnobirthing course. Undertaking this diploma has also reignited my passion for empowering, educating and supporting families through this magical time.

Hi, 

My name is Grace, and I have worked with children and babies for many years. I am a huge advocate for mindfulness and after having my own Hypno Baby I trained as a Hypnobirthing teacher. 

 

It saddens me greatly that mums go in to Birth fearful and that it seems to be a culture that mums just resign herself to the ‘fact’ that she has to go thought this awful experience.

 

How can this be? Birth is for many women a wonderful, empowering and positive experience. The difference often is Birth education and preparation. 

 

In my courses I aim for women to leave calm and confident going in to birth. We educate all our women and their birth partners to understand their choices in their care, and how this can effect their birth.

 

Go in to Birth excited and come away with a huge sense of achievement and a positive  experience that will stay with you forever. 

 

We cover areas around South Wales and the West Country.

 

Including:

 

Newport, Chepstow, Cwmbran, Monmouthshire, Gwent, Bristol. 

 

Despite its slightly odd name Hypnobirthing is simply all round really good birth education for body and mind. Hypnobirthing is effective and evidence based.

 

We teach skills for pregnancy and birth but, these skills are transferrable to everyday life once you realise how powerful your mind is that is something you can use across your whole life. 

 

 

Think of it like an antenatal class plus. We talk your through the physiology of birth, each stage of labour and birth, giving you practical tips such as positions for labour.  Move though to deep relaxation to support your control of your mind over the body, deal with fears that you many have around birth and look in to how these fears can effect your birth. A effective and holistic approach to birth.

 

Small group sessions and one to ones are lead by your needs and that of your birth partners, which makes for a personalised experience.  

 

A confident and calm birth is entirely possible.

 

If  going in to birth  excited sounds like it’s for you or you have any questions feel free to get in touch.

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’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.

Over the years, my career has moulded me into a unique combination of a nurse specialist in anaesthesia and a registered midwife. I have been helping mothers and fathers in some of the most life-changing situations of their lives for a very long time, and have also worked with newborn babies and young children going through serious medical and surgical operations.

 

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 KGH certified and Royal College of Midwives accredited hypnobirthing teacher, I use my skills and lived experience to deliver a hands-on, interactive, gentle, evidence-based and empowering course.

 

Questions and skeptics and enthusiasm welcome!

I was a first-time mum in 2016, and I thought I already knew most of what I needed to know. I'm a biology teacher, and what I didn't know, I'd just Google, right? Everybody does it, so giving birth must just be easy, I'll be fine. In amongst my Googling, I did come across Hypnobirthing, but wasn't really interested in finding out more. 

More than anything, I wish I had found out more and utilised Hypnobirthing when my son was born. I was in labour for three days, I was totally unprepared, and I ended up traumatised and terrified of the possibility of ever needing to go through that again.

When I became pregnant for the second time, I was determined to make sure it was a more positive experience. I promised myself that if hypnobirthing was everything I'd hoped for, I would teach others and help them have the same positive experience.

... and hypnobirthing was everything I'd hoped for... and more.  

It's a logical, evidence-based approach to pregnancy and birth, and it gave me all of the options and information I needed. 

My husband was sceptical at the start but really enjoyed learning about the biology of birth and was relieved that he was given a specific role in the birth. The relaxation techniques were a great resource during my pregnancy and when my waters broke in the middle of the night, we were both prepared, calm and confident.

Hello! Emily here. 

Growing up and even right up until I was pregnant at 31, I had been terrified of giving birth. I felt like I needed to be as prepared as possible and began a huge reading list to find out as much as I could before I found myself in a situation I knew nothing about. I stumbled upon KG Hypnobirthing and found it covered all the areas I needed to know about and the logic just made sense. I soon understood what was happening to my body which enabled me to stay calm and relaxed and used affirmations, breathing techniques and visualisations to maintain the calm state of mind. I did not have 'the perfect birth.' My son was born in a moving ambulance whilst being transferred from the Withybush MLU to Glangwili but KGH helped me to not freak out and remain calm.

Aswell as becoming a birth geek, I love reading pretty much anything, crocheting, journaling and general crafting. In my day job, I run a project which facilitates and supports adults with learning disabilities in physical activity and I am a qualified gym instructor, swim teacher and group cycling instructor. I tend to do my own workouts at home but enjoy group classes when childcare allows.

I love working with people and have a wealth of experience in customer service. I sincerely look forward to meeting you and supporting you through your pregnancy.
