Hi, im Hannah (she/her) and a mum of two hypnobirthed girls, one now 5 and the other 3. My career started working in schools with primary children and I retrained after my first birth. Hypnobirthing totally changed the way I approached birth and I so enjoyed it that I want to share it with as many mums and families as possible. I trained in London under Katherine Graves on her course accredited by the Royal Collage of Midwives. Since then I have gained a wonderful breadth of experience teaching families on varying paths with varying goals.
My courses are packed with information to help you make your own informed choices and tools to call on during pregnancy, birth and through into your new life as a parent. I am a huge home birth advocate after having had two myself. I believe knowledge is empowering and birth can be exciting! My aim is to support you in facilitating the best birth for you and your family.
I also run both weekly Pregnancy Relaxation and Mums (parent) Relaxation Groups.
I believe that how we feel after birth and in those first few months can be such a roller coaster. There are so many different classes for you to take your baby, but sometimes taking some time to continue the relaxations you started during pregnancy can be such a benefit to you. Both mentally and emotionally. This will ripple out and help to both relax your baby and those around you. So, think about building in a bit of New Mum (parent) You Time every Sunday at 12 noon.
I pack this course full of information in a friendly, conversational and open way. I bring my own insight of two home hypnobirths and the experience I have gained from working along side a wide range of women and families. I am a supporter of the underdog! The course is divided over four sessions and you will have my continued support throughout your pregnancy.
* The physiology of birth
* Your Hormones
* Birth environment
* Birthing options and your choices
* Birth partner involvement
to name a few!
You will leave this course with my continued support, feeling fully equiped and excited to give birth!

A wonderful part of learning hypnobirthing are the relaxation techniques. These are used throughout pregnancy and during birth itself.
During classes we cover all the essential avenues related to pregnancy and birth, including hormones, muscles and where best for you to be to birth.
Hypnobirthing offers a wonderful insight to the first few hours, days and weeks of your baby's life, helping you feel totally prepared and excited to become a parent.
I run totally flexible and personalised courses based in and around Sussex. These are either one to one or in group sessions. These can either be held in my home or your own depending on needs and numbers etc. I am proud to have worked with many different families on different journeys, from IVF, Sperm doner, LGBTQ community and differnt cultural backgrounds. I am always open to your journey and helping you navigate through it with confidence. Classes are usually based on around 10 to 12 hours of tuition with phone and email support throughout. You will also receive a copy of my Pregnancy Relaxation and Birth Prep MP3 once booking is made.
If this date doesnt suit then just shout and we can arrange a time to fit us both!
