I started Hypnobirth Mamas to offer support, community and positivity to pregnant women and their partners, all things I feel very passionately about.

My Hypnobirth training was with Katharine Graves, (founder of KG Hypnobirthing and author of the Hypnobirthing Book (Chapter 1 free here)) and is accredited by the Royal College of Nursing and Midwives and I am a member of the Hypnobirthing Association.

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.

Please feel free to contact me about any aspect of Hypnobirthing - I am really happy to help you decide if it is for you.
