Hypnobirthing West Sussex - Teachers' Directory
My name is Nicky and I run Glow Births & Babies. I have two children and have recently moved to the sea which I love!
Glow Births provide hypnobirthing, pregnancy relaxation and antenatal classes in Chichester and the surrounding villages.
The classes are relaxed, unbiased and inspirational, to provide you with the information you need to have an empowered birth, and journey into parenthood.
I teach both group classes and private classes, and am happy to tailor private classes to suit individuals and to combine with our other offerings.
I am passionate about all things birth, and most of all supporting women. I want all women to go into birth feeling confident, supported and responsible for their own decisions.
We are both mums and practicing midwives working in a local hospital. We have both become fascinated with the unquestionable benefits of hypnobirthing following the birth of Pat's grandaughter when we first saw the wonderful calming effect it had and since then we have been hooked!
We have cared for many women using hypnobirthing techniques in all kinds of births and been amazed with its power and have also loved seeing how it brings couples together to really prepare together for the birth of their babies.
We are trained to teach the KGH programme of hypnobirthing and the training undertaken is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.
Hi, my name is Stacie and I am a midwife originally from Birmingham but now living in sunny West Sussex with my wonderful partner, two step-children and a golden retriever!
I qualified as a midwife in 2007 and since have been in different roles including completing a Master's degree in 2015 focused on mental health during pregnancy. I strongly believe in the importance of mental wellbeing- it is at least as important as physical health. I am currently a specialist midwife at a local NHS Trust, my focus on quality improvement in the maternity service.
I am passionate about ensuring women have positive and fulfilling birth experiences. I've seen so often during my midwifery career the fear of childbirth and I have always been in awe of the power of the female body to birth babies. I want to help give women the confidence in their bodies and their partners the confidence to support the woman to bring their baby into the world. There is nothing more special than being a part of this magical journey.
Hi my name is Emma. I am the mother of two beautiful girls. I am a fully qualified and practicing midwife and I am also the founder and teacher of Bump, Birth and Beyond Ltd.
I am passionate about educating parents and ensuring good information and the tools to make informed choices leading up to and during childbirth.
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!
My name is Louise and I am a registered practicing midwife and founder of Let's Talk Birth and Baby. I started providing antenatal & hypnobirthing courses as result of having cared for many couples who came to the hospital having attended traditional classes only to find that they were not as prepared as they had initially thought. My midwife led hypnobirthing course explains the importance of acceptance in the process by using deep relaxation and visualisation and the antenatal course explores every birth eventuality to ensure that nothing comes as a surprise.
Hi, I'm Sarah, KGHypnobirthing 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 intrigued, 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 after all!
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'm Jacqui. I have two lovely children. My background was in local radio until I had my children. I then retrained and became a British Wheel of Yoga teacher specialising in Pregnancy and Post Natal therapy. After successfully teaching pregnancy yoga for 12 years , Hypnobirthing was a natural addition to the therapy I offer. I am passionate about gentle positive birthing being fabulous for mum and baby.
I have the three best jobs in the world. Wife, Mummy and KGHypnobirthing instructor (in no particular order!). Each of my jobs has it's own unique set of challenges and I couldn't love any of them more.
Having had cancer at 18 I have spent a LOT of time in hospitals and as you can imagine a lot of those experiences have been less than pleasant and left me feeling helpless. (Let me assure you, I am FAR FAR from helpless!) When I found out I was pregnant I started to search for something that would give me back some power and control for the birth of my baby, something I felt in my heart ought to feel natural and instinctive.
Whether by luck or judgement I came accross a KGHypnobirthing class and I made the leap to book in (a little cautiously, half expecting to have incense and crystals waved around me). From the very first session I knew I had made the right choice (even my husband was convinced!!!) and from that moment onwards my passion for the KGHypnobirthing method has continued to grow. When my son decided it was time to make his way in to the world, the tools I'd learned from KG hypnobirthing kept me calm, in control and helped me make rational and informed decisions when thing didn't go as I had envisioned them.
I didn't have the "perfect birth", but we had exactly the right birth for us. This empassioned me even more to help expectant parents understand that birth is not one size fits all. Birth (and parenthood) when in the hands of the parents without fear or undue influence is, in my eyes, just like love. It's not the same for everyone, it might not happen exactly as you anticipated, it's not always the easiest thing in the world and probably isn't 100% perfect; yet somehow it is exactly right for you. This is the message I want to spread and what I want to set families on the road to acheive for themselves.
I am a mum and have three children and also a teacher and an experienced hypnotherapist, hypnobirthing teacher and Doula. I have a passion for helping people and love helping expectant parents to overcome their fears and to give them tools to create as calm, confident and relaxed birth as possible on the day. It is such a positive and joyful aspect of my work and it is wonderful to watch you on the course, become empowered and knowledgeable parents. I work from a studio just South of Chichester and will sometimes, travel to other areas of west Sussex and Hampshire, particularly if I am your Doula as well as Hypnobirthing teacher.
My name is Shirley and I live in Fernhurst in the border of the three counties West Sussex, Surrey & Hampshire. We have three daughters. Two of these were hypnobirths. My third birth was at home and the most amazing experience I have ever had. I realised the importance of understanding the birth process and how to work with your body will enable you to have a positive birth experience.
Birth and children are my world! I also run world music and movement classes for babies and toddlers called Yo Baby.
I run a local Positive Birth Movement Group, a local Home Birth Support group where we lend pools for a donation, I am a Reiki Master and currently training in Indian Head Massage and as a ABM Breastfeeing Counsellor.
I am so passionate about spreading the Hypnobirth word, giving birth is a life changing experience. By practicing Hypnobirthing you are also learning new skills for life that you continue to use after your baby is born.
