My name is Debbie Tidey. I am a mother of 2 and have personal experience of deep relaxation and self hypnosis during birth. My births were both normal vaginal birth but they were two very different experiences. I am a birth and post natal doula, registered with Doula UK, an antenatal educator, registered with FEDANT, and last but not least a KG HypnoBirthing teacher, taught by Katharine Graves and registered with the Hypnobirthing Association. I will also be a fully qualified and accredited Hypnotherapist in early 2015.  My journey to supporting women and their partners during pregnancy, birth and early parenting was inspired by my wonderful experience of having a Doula present at my second birth. I have always worked closely with families and babies but after such an empowering experience with our doula, I became passionate about birth. I have a strong passion to support women and couples through whatever choices they make and however their labyrinth of birth unfolds.

I'm a mum to five grown up people and nana to four gorgeous little people.  I'm a Doula UK recognised birth doula, a trained and experienced breastfeeding peer supporter of 8 years, and a maternity reflexologist.  I originally trained as a nurse and I have worked in operating theatres, and more recently as a maternity support worker on the labour and postnatal wards locally.  Pre-pandemic I volunteered as a breastfeeding peer supporter in local clinics, Princess Royal drop-in clinic and on the ward. 

All this experience around birth and the postnatal period makes me passionate about sensitive, individual and knowledgable support and preparation.  As a KGHyonobirthing teacher I can offer this.  I know that women and birthing people have everything they need to birth their babies, but it helps to take away some of the layers of cultural conditioning that contribute to a lack of confidence in our bodies.

I'm an extroverted introvert, I enjoy Sussex Bonfire, photography, live music and dancing the night away.  I love a walk on the downs, especially on a moonlit night,  a birthy book and a good chocolate cake.

My name is Vicki and I am a primary school teacher and hypnobirthing practitioner. I am also the proud mum to two hypnobirthing babies. Before falling pregnant with my first son, I think I had the view that birth is painful and something to be feared. However, early on in my pregnancy I started to challenge these views and this is when I came across hypnobirthing. The more I read the more it began to make sense to me. Having grown up on a farm I was so used to seeing animals give birth and began to question why it is any different for humans than any other mammals. ​ I excitedly signed up for a hypnobirthing course with my partner. After the first session exploring the history of birth and the science behind it, I was hooked! I left each session with a 'lightbulb' moment and was talking about hypnobirthing to anyone who would listen. My partner began quite sceptical, however we left each session more and more excited to practise the skills we were learning. I felt like the relaxations helped me to connect with both my partner and my baby. I no longer felt afraid to give birth - something I never thought I'd say. ​ Three years on, and two positive births later, I decided to train as a KGHypnobirthing practitioner to help other couples to have a positive birth experience. Hypnobirthing is now listed on the Worthing hospital maternity notes as one of the methods for pain relief therefore hopefully more and more women are hearing about how to change their births. Hypnobirthing just makes sense to me. It is simply listening to your body, understanding the physical process and using relaxation techniques to release fear. I would love to work with you and thank you for visiting my page.

I am a mama of one hypnobirthing rainbow toddler, Emily, and two babies too precious for this earth.

After feeling a lot of fear and anxiety around birth, especially with the added worry of my prior losses I wanted to find a way to make my experience with my daughter better. KG Hypnobirthing was that piece of the puzzle I had been missing. I really enjoyed my birth and decided that I wanted to help other mama's have a positive & calm experience too, so here I am.

In 2015 I also qualified with a degree in paediatric nursing, which has given me further depth and understanding around child development, anatomy and physiology.

I am so passionate about hypnobirthing and want to share this course as far and wide as I possibly can! It is so logical, underpinned by science and attainable by everybody - even if you have already had a non-hypnobirthing baby.

I first came across Hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my first child. I had already decided that I wanted a homebirth - I’m not really sure why I got this into my head but it just felt right to me, even though we were in a flat which didn't have a huge amount of privacy! Me and my husband didn’t really know what to expect from a Hypnobirthing class, we thought it sounded a bit wishy-washy but we were open to learning more. During the course my brain had so many light bulb moments, things just clicked into place, I didn’t understand why it wasn’t something we were all just taught! Realising that by learning about my physiology and practicing the techniques I could allow my mind and body to work in unison was incredibly empowering. 

Since then I have become very impassioned by Hypnobirthing and wanting women to have the birth they want and deserve to have; so this year I decided to undertake the KG Hypnobirthing course, taught by the incredibly knowledgeable teacher Katherine Graves.

I have had two wonderful homebirths but that isn’t for everyone, your ideal birth can happen in any environment. The only thing that matters is that the experience is a positive one for you and your baby - you are more in control of that than you might think. Taking a Hypnobirthing course gives you the knowledge and techniques you need to feel empowered and confident and help you have the best possible birth for you.
