Hypnobirthing Yorkshire S - Teachers' Directory
I am 59 years old, married and I have 2 daughters and three grandchildren and have had the privilege of being there at all their births and what an amazing experience they all have been. Especially my youngest daughter's pregnancy she did hypnobirthing and it was so beautiful, this is why I decided to train in the techniques. I firmly believe that to be a well adjusted and well balanced adult it has to start in the womb. That is why I am committed to ensuring mum is relaxed and calm throughout her pregnancy which in turns allows her baby to have the same experience. I am able to work with mum before conception and right through to birth and beyond to offer the continuity not often available to her.
I'm Georgia, mum of two and cake fanatic! I am trained in KGHypnobirthing: the original UK Hypnobirthing course, so you can be sure that you are receiving the highest quality antenatal education.
Every birth is totally unique, and for this reason, I believe that every woman should have the knowledge, tools and confidence she needs to make informed choices about her birth and feel completely in control of her birth experience.
After a traumatic first birth, I was terrified when I learnt I was expecting my second child. I turned to Hypnobirthing and was amazed by the results. I had a calm labour and birth, and felt totally in control throughout. I would do it all again tomorrow, without hesitation!
I truly believe that Hypnobirthing is the way to make this happen. My courses provide the perfect balance between antenatal education to allow informed choice, and relaxation techniques to give you the calm confidence you require to fully enjoy your birth experience.
I am a dedicated and passionate midwife who has been practising since 2008. I have worked in all areas of midwifery including community and in birth centres. My main goal when working as a midwife is to keep a woman’s birthing experience as ‘positivel’ as possible, even when their experiences are ‘not going to plan’. This is through different methods such as encouraging upright positions, advising massage and a homely atmosphere. During the time that I have worked as a midwife, I have cared for many couples who have used hypnobirthing as a tool to give them the best labour and birth experience possible. I was very inspired by these experiences, as I frequently cared for women that seemed so calm, their labours often progressed quickly and the women often used less pain relief than those not hypnobirthing. Along with this, the birth partners also appeared well informed and very supportive. These experiences inspired me to becoming a KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner, as I also wanted to be able to share these amazing, powerful techniques. I work part time as midwife now and part time as a Hypnobirthing Practitioner to give couples the flexibility and best availability for their classes. During my spare time, I go hiking, practice yoga and I am involved in a local midwifery group who are campaigning for a much-needed free standing birth centre in South Yorkshire. I love to travel and I have been lucky enough to spend time in different countries such as Madagascar, where I have gained many different experiences and have had my practice influenced.
After qualifying as a midwife at King's College London, I went straight to work for a caseload team in South London. This brilliant job - based at St Thomas' hospital - gave me the opportunity to work with women from their booking appointment, through the birth, to the early days of parenthood. I have now assisted at well over 100 births, at home and in hospital settings. It is always a privilege to support mothers at the time of birth, and I have seen, time and time again, the great strength and love that women bring to their own unique birth.
I was convinced of the benefits of hypnobirthing long before becoming a midwife. My sister, after a challenging first birth, used hypnobirthing to prepare for her second. The result was a overwhelmingly positive natural birth experience for my sister, which, in turn, transformed my understanding of what birth could be like. I have now witnessed many times the positive effects of hypnobirthing, and strongly believe in its benefits, however a birth unfolds.
Having studied languages to degree level at the University of Cambridge, I speak French and German fluently, and would encourage any mothers to get in touch if they would like classes, or more general support, in these languages.
I recently moved up to Sheffield, where I continue to work as an NHS midwife and qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher. I practice meditation myself, and have experienced first-hand its benefits for my physical and mental health. On my days off, I head out to the Peak in pursuit of beautiful landscapes and rocks - my other great loves, and the reason for my move up North!
Providing support and care for women and families during pregnancy and childbirth isn't a job for me, its very much a part of who I am. I had a previous lengthy career working in a bank in Sheffield but gave it up to move to London to pursue my dreams of becoming a midwife.
I have never felt such a sense of pride or motivation for what I do until I found my calling and strive to ensure a woman always feels empowered, informed and in control of her birth. This is what led me to my interest in antenatal education and in particular, KG Hypnobirthing.
I am passionate about what this course provides, having seen first hand I can say undoubtedly that KG Hypnobirthing is a powerful tool that helps expectant parents feel confident, relaxed and informed about the exciting journey into parenthood.
When you are considering Hypnobirthing, you want to know whether it can help you and if you can trust it and if it is a good investment. More and more women and their partners all answer "Yes" to these questions.
I knew when I was very young that I wanted to teach parents how to care for their babies, and so teaching Hypnobirthing was a natural step for me. My nursing and complementary work and particularly Hypnotherapy, ensures I offer a quality service to you and your partner to support you for an empowering birth experience.
The benefits are that I work with you on any fears with a new positive mindset, to trust yourself, and learn so much about your health in pregnancy, your body, labour, birth, care of your baby, and how to become confident Parents with a calmer baby. On this course you will also learn how to get the best support from your partner and caregivers. Wouldn't it be great to have lovely memories of the birth of your baby that you will remember forever?
I remember what it felt like to be a new Parent, and so many Parents want additional support and advice, either during pregnancy or once baby arrives. Being prepared by receiving supportive antenatal advice and care and feeling spoiled can be such a great start.
I offer an additional VIP package ranging from 2-4 hours which can include consultation face to face or via email, for a choice of therapies, or a successful breast-feeding package. Please contact me for information.
I offer Maternity Reflexology during pregnancy, and a special session when you have reached the anticipated date of baby's birth to help you relax and prepare for labour and birth.
As well as being a qualified nurse and midwife, having worked as a midwife for over 30 years, I am a mother of 3 grown up children. I worked as a community midwife for 18 years and a caseload midwife for 10 of these caring for my families throughout their pregnancy, birth at home or in hospital and postnatally up until their baby was a month old. a high number of the women on our caseload had their baby at home, but we also cared for women with more complex pregnancies in hospital. Over the past 15 years I have qualified in a number of complementary therapies which I have incorporated into my midwifery practice, such as Massage, Shiatsu, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and teaching baby massage. I offered a course of baby massage to the team's families which I really enjoyed, especially as I could see the babies grow and develop after 1 month of age! I also worked as a complementary therapy midwife with a colleague at the Jessop Wing hospital, one day a week for 7 years.
I now work on labour ward and love caring for famiies having their babies and feel passionate in promoting a positive birth experience. Each birth is unique and I feel priveledged to be with the family at this special time.
I have now completed the Hypnobirthing course and feel excited about teaching this to couples.
I'm a qualified Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and more importantly, a KGHypnobirthing Teacher. I am also a very proud mum of twins (teenagers now!). The powers of the mind has always fascinated me as well as birth! Coming across Hypnobirthing was a magical combination of both and the more I learnt, the more I wanted to learn. I am now in a position to pass this knowledge onto you. The world of midwifery is always changing and keeping myself updated and on top of the latest news is always my aim, so you can rest assured you will be receiving the best and latest information. I am also a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and strictly abide by thier code of ethics. I am also registered with ICO (Data Protection Register)
