Evening & weekend Mindful Hypnobirthing classes in Oxfordshire.  Plus Mindful Breastfeeding & Pregnancy Meditation!

I love giving birth! And however you feel right now, your birth (or breastfeeding) journey is about to get exciting! And it’s supposed to be easy!

Hypnobirthing was created by an American Hypnotherapist over 27 years ago and Katharine Graves (also a hypnotherapist) then brought Hypnobirthing to the UK.

Hypnobirthing is rooted in extensive hypnosis skill & birth knowledge, confidence & deep, deep relaxation.  So in addition to all that good stuff I give you advanced hypnosis knowledge, clever hypnosis techniques & mindful insights not taught elsewhere!

So relax! I’m an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist, Mindfulness practitioner & 3x hypnobirthing mama! 

I’ve used & trained in three different Hypnobirthing methods! So I know what works well (and what doesn’t!) I offer you flexibility & provide various birth preparation packages to suit the busiest of diaries!
