Hypnobirthing 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 private hypnobirthing in 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 teach hypnobirthing in Norfolk and the surrounding areas.

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 birth you deserve 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.

Think Positive!


How many of you were flooded with negative birth stories the moment you started telling people you were expecting?  What is the deal with that?! Everyone from your sister to the supermarket checkout lady can’t wait to tell you how many days they were in labour/stitches they needed/painful it was/traumatised they were etc etc etc.

Hands Off The Breech!


You may have seen in the press recently the suggestion by UK researchers that all mothers should be offered a scan at 36 weeks to detect whether their baby is in a breech presentation. Whilst I understand the premise behind this is to prevent potential poor outcomes for babies in breech presentation, I have to say honestly the idea of blanket screening in this manner makes me mildly uncomfortable.

What a fantastic day!


I went along to The Parent & Baby Show at the UEA, Norwich yesterday and had a truly lovely time.  It was the first ‘big’ show I’ve done and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many parents to be and other businesses.
