Welcome to Oxford Hypnobirthing!
Let me guess. You’re pregnant! And that’s the green light for everyone to share unhelpful horror stories. But thankfully, someone has recommended hypnobirthing. And perhaps your Midwife has suggested it too.
Either way. You’re in the right place. Years of experience. Unstoppable passion. I’m your very own hypnobirthing teacher – here for you – throughout your pregnancy.
What makes me different? Hypnosis.
While other Hypnobirthing methods downplay the hypnosis (some remove it entirely). I know the benefit of Hypnosis in birth and its uses in pain. And if hypnosis has been helping with pain for thousands of years and is becoming more used in hospitals? You deserve Hypnosis to stay in Hypnobirthing. And you deserve up to date know how.

Is birth painful?
You’re going to give birth to a baby!! And right now? If you’re normal, you might feel a bit apprehensive or under prepared. You might be expecting pain, tearing or worried about birth poo.
But birth is not designed to be painful! It’s not designed to be frightening, noisy or even difficult. And we’re not supposed to worry about birth.
So Hypnobirthing helps you take birth back to what it should be. A normal (amazing!) event that you can feel comfortable with.
So if you want your dignity. Or you want to feel empowered. And you want to feel calm & confident during birth?
You want Hypnobirthing!
And here’s what we do
Your baby will come out. That’s guaranteed. So let’s stack the good birth odds in your favour and get informed about birth, your options and your instincts. Learn how to birth well. And if you have a partner (or two) help them feel confident & better equipped to you help you.
Hypnobirthing is more than just a pain relief method. It’s your mind-body birthing know how. Plus everything you ever wanted to know about birth:
- Advanced hypnosis & scripts
- Relaxation & comfort measures
- Breathing techniques
- Tearing prevention
- Hypnobirthing Anchors

- Affirmations, scripts, congruency

A few Key Hypnobirthing points
When should I start Hypnobirthing?
Most people book after 20 weeks and start before 35 weeks. The sooner you start, the more practice time you have. But it’s never too late. I’ve been booked as late as 41 weeks!
Is your Hypnobirthing support for everyone?
Yes. I’m fairly unique in offering ongoing support to everyone – private or group. Please don’t underestimate the value of this. If you need it? It’s invaluable!
If this an antenatal course?
Yes. With a lot of Hypnosis & Hypnobirthing! I’ve heard people say hypnosis is just a small part of Hypnobirthing. And it worries concerns me. My promise is that I’ll share the clever hypnosis stuff. And the misconception that Hypnobirthing is just for home birth & water birth? We’ll demistify that & cover Hypnobirthing for all other types of birth as well.
A little about me
Hi I’m Steph.
I love my work. I love learning. I love doing things the RIGHT way. And I LOVE my hypnobabies!!
I’m a Clinical Hypnotherapist & a Hypnobirthing Teacher. I have worked with some of the leading names in Hypnobirthing & Hypnotherapy. Trained by Katharine Graves herself, I also hold a diploma in Medical Hypnotherapy & a degree in Biology & Psychology.
I’ve had 3 fabulous hypnobirths. And on top of loving my births? It undoubtedly made a difference to my babies.
My skills attract lovely people. My therapies help lift birth & breastfeeding trauma. Build confidence. Release fear, anxieties, phobias and more. If something bothers you & your mind is a factor – Hypnotherapy / Hypnobirthing can help.
Don’t fear birth.
Your body knows what to do & your baby isn’t worried! But there’s a whole system to navigate. And often it’s a case of don’t ask, don’t get. Many people are OK with this. And that’s fine. But if you want more?
You’re in the right place.
