Hypnobirthing is a thorough and profound antenatal preparation that is beneficial for all parents, experiencing any kind of birth, in any kind of setting. The carefully crafted course equips you with the tools you need to be able to give birth in the most positive way possible. In doing so, you are ensuring the best start to your new family life for you, your partner and importantly your baby. I provide in-depth knowledge of the physiology of birth and what to expect during your journey to becoming a parent, an explanation of the importance of positive language, how to reduce anxiety and stress and, as a result, reduce pain. In addition I will teach you simple but effective self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques to allow your body to work as it is designed. Most importantly I will give you the confidence you need to trust your body, your instincts and your decisions enabling you to take responsibility for your baby’s birth.
While induction of labour is something that should be very carefully considered, some women do have a genuine medical need for an induction. If you have decided that an induction is what is right for you and your baby I firmly believe that you can still have a positive birth experience and have specifically designed this course to help you achieve that.
We came out of each session feeling really inspired and empowered. We can’t thank you enough for instilling us with a sense of positivity and excitement approaching the most important event of our lives!

I had no idea what hypnobirthing (or really actually birth in general) involved and my wife booked us onto this course. This course really highlighted what I didn’t know that I didn’t know, which was a lot. It completely changed my perception of labour, which had been passively constructed over the years from overheard stories and of course – TV. Charlotte’s advice has left me feeling confident as a husband and birthing partner as to my role and what I need to be doing to support my wife.
I highly recommend Bloom to anyone who has any anxieties about giving birth: Charlotte had lots and lots of time for my particular questions and worries, and she has really helped me feel very positive and relaxed about my upcoming birth.
We really cannot recommend Charlotte and her course enough! You won’t find a friendlier, more approachable and professional individual if you tried! Thanks so much.
Charlotte very kindly tailored her course to make a bespoke one for our situation. She did a lot of work with us to learn about the process, release my fears and give us ideas on how DH could best support me. With her help, we also planned a lovely day for the day before to get the oxytocin flowing.
It was more than I could have asked for, I feel so much more prepared and informed. Ready to “boss” this pregnancy!!! The honesty, the information, the diagrams (lol) and the sheer dedication and passion Charlotte clearly has for the subject really helped us to learn and want to learn too!Thank you for your time care and dedication. We really appreciate everything you have done for us xx
I went into hospital informed, in control, confident and fully aware of the induction procedure and what would happen, and what I could ask for! 100% recommend, Charlotte is amazing and her course is brilliant!!!

Charlotte has a natural ability to make you feel calm and empowered. There was never a time when I felt I couldn’t ask a question or waffle on about something I’d heard. Charlotte was really clear, honest, calm and enabled us to build our knowledge and understanding of the options and choices we have without any judgement. She made me feel like I could make any decisions necessary and they would be the right ones for us and our baby. I highly recommend not just hypnobirthing but Charlotte as teacher and mentor!

If it were possible to put every expectant mother, particularly first time mothers through a hypnobirthing course, whether they chose to give birth in a hospital or at home, I am sure that the need for intervention and the number of emergency cases would dramatically reduce.
This is about giving women back the skills that they have forgotten.
KG Hypnobirthing mothers never ask you what is happening to them. They know what is happening to them.
