Interested in Hypnobirthing in Norfolk?


Congratulations on your pregnancy! I imagine you have come here to find out a little more about what hypnobirthing is all about and how it can help you to have an incredible, positive birth experience. Perhaps you are a first time mum, anxious after hearing scary birth stories from everyone from your family to strangers in a supermarket? Or a second time mum who has had a difficult previous experience and want to avoid history repeating itself? I am here to help you.

I am a mother of three, birth nerd and qualified hypnobirthing teacher providing group and private hypnobirthing classes in and around Norwich, Norfolk.  I have a Diploma in Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing.  This programme is the only hypnobirthing course approved and accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and is the training of choice for the NHS, taught to NHS midwives in hospitals around the country. I am also registered with The Federation of Antenatal Teachers (FEDANT) who work closely with professional bodies, the Nursing and Midwifery Council and government regulatory bodies to ensure teaching is delivered at a high standard and their code of ethics and practice is adhered to.  In addition to my work as a hypnobirthing teacher I am also Facilitator for the Norwich & Norfolk Positive Birth Movement, working hard to spread positivity about childbirth by hosting local meet ups for expectant and new mothers.  You can therefore be sure you are in very safe hands with me.

I am passionate about birth, about empowerment and about the importance of informed choice.  I believe that all women are designed to give birth with confidence, calmly and comfortably, we just need to re-learn how to do it!  You are capable of and deserve a positive birth experience, whatever that may look like to you.

Please feel free to read my story to find out more about who I am and how I came to teach KGHypnobirthing.  I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve the wonderful, positive, life affirming birth you and your baby deserve.  Charlotte x

What is Hypnobirthing


Hypnobirthing is a thorough and profound antenatal preparation that is beneficial for all parents, wanting any kind of birth, in any kind of setting. The course equips you with the tools you need to be able to give birth in the most positive way possible, 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.

Just Say No (if you want to)


One thing I’ve noticed over recent times is how many women, and their partners, understandably believe that many interventions are standard and happen without us being given a choice. I get that, so many are just ‘routine’ these days and so it’s become the norm that we’ll encounter them at some point and so there is a perception that we don’t get to say no. I want you to know that this is absolutely NOT the case-you do not have to agree to any intervention that you are not completely happy to accept.
