I’m a mum of two hypnobirthed babies, 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 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 You Time every Sunday at 12 noon.

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 to be for 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 and Birth Relaxation MP3 once booking is made.
COVID 19 UPDATE
I am really pleased to say that my courses at the moment are working really well via Zoom. I am able to share the same content and amount of 'face time' as I would normally, just online!
Firstly, for the duration of this lock down I am running a free half hour Pregnancy Relaxation group via Zoom every Wednesday at 7pm. Please get in touch if you would like to join!
Secondly, I believe post partum health is hugly important. At the moment it is totally different than any new parents were expecting so I am running a, currently free, Mums Relaxation Group via Zoom on a Sunday at 12noon.
And Thirdly, during this difficult and unprecedented time I would like to extend the offer of half price courses at the moment and for the next few months. This is my way of being able to help and support you still at this crazy and perhaps financially difficult time!
I would rather be able to share hypnobirthing with you than not at all, much love, Hannah
