Why I became a practitioner
As a midwife I have been privileged to see the empowering and life changing effect that a positive birth experience can have. Therefore when I became pregnant I knew that to have the birth I wanted I needed to keep my mind calm and my outlook positive. I searched many things, but to me the only thing that really hit the nail on the head was Natal Hypnotherapy! When I experienced the amazing, fulfilling, joyous effect it had on me and my family I knew I had to share it!
As a therapist and midwife I have seen women postnataly, disappointed and sometimes traumatized by their birth experience. I passionately want to do something to help change this, as I know and have seen that it doesn’t have to be this way. I believe that if every woman in the UK practiced Natal Hypnotherapy, birth as we know it would change for the better!

I feel passionate about empowering women to have the best possible birth for them and believe that by teaching Natal Hypnotherapy courses I can help them on the journey towards a positive birth experience.
• That with the right cocktail of antenatal preparation, support and self-belief, birth can be an extremely joyous and fulfilling experience for both Mothers and birth partners.
• That being relaxed & calm throughout pregnancy, labour and birth is the key to a positive labour and birth experience.
• To quote Henry Ford: ‘Whether or not you think you can, whether or not you think you can't, you're right'.

Feedback from Natal Hypnotherapy classes
I am practicing community midwife, who has supported women giving birth in hospital and at home. My work has shown me first-hand the positive, physical and emotional consequences that a gentle birth can have. As a mum I experienced the benefits of Natal Hypnotherapy in my pregnancy and when I birthed my baby at home; my birth was AMAZING and it was so empowering that I would repeat the experience right now if I could!

"This course should be on the NHS. All expectant parents can benefit."

"A must for all couples. A very bonding experience - empowering for both the mother and the father - better than any NCT or postnatal class I have ever attended. My little girl was born in 58 minutes! (from 3cm dilated to her being placed on my tummy). Her arrival was an amazing experience - I tell her she was born with love. I felt in control throughout the whole of my labour and much more knowledgeable about my body and what stage I was act. My little girl and I acted as a team - and it is something I will remember for the rest of my life.”

"As a worried expectant father, I learned so many ways to help my wife - as well as building my confidence to deal effectively with the medical team at the hospital”

"Fantastic course, so pleased we came, I would recommend it to everyone, it should be compulsory for all pregnant women, their partners and midwives. There was a wealth of information that was really useful especially the tools for birth. "
"It was very well structured and very informative to someone who was very sceptical at the beginning. The key parts for me were the breathing control and giving me the confidence to support my partner. The trainer was very good, very clear, was not judgmental and encouraged questions - the delivery of course was excellent."

"Thanks for a great 2 days. It was really useful for me to understand about the phases of birth and how to deal with the medical team and being given an important role in the whole process. I particularly enjoyed the hypnosis sessions and felt very comfortable asking any questions and talking about my fears"

"Understanding the physiology in plain English was great - it made me realize how natural it is and that relaxing is going to be far more beneficial than panicking"
