You are so very welcome to my website! I’m pleased you’ve popped on over!
You may have found me in your search for Hypnobirthing, so let me tell you a little about me and my unique way of helping you prepare for your baby’s birth using hypnosis and wonderful breathing and relaxation tools and techniques!
My name is Kate and I’m an antenatal & postnatal educator proudly associated with The Calm Birth School, empowering parents-to-be, being a firm believer in positive birth experiences, loving Baby Calm & Toddler Calm and Mummy to 2 awesome girls!
I am based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire (or MK as it’s known locally!) and I am all about supporting mothers and their birth partners in early pregnancy, through to a positive birth experience and into the first throws of parenthood! (Fab birth prep is the key to changing how you look back on and feel about your birth )
Traditional Hypnobirthing teaches you how to have a natural birth without drugs, but if you are looking for traditional Hypnobirthing, then you are in the wrong place, ladyface! I can’t guarantee a particular kind of birth, no-one can! Trust me, if I could guarantee a particular kind of birth…I would!
What I do believe though is that investing in yourself and your birth preparation is going to be some of the best money you ever spend!
You will learn how to have the birth that is right for you and your baby so you can feel prepared no matter what happens during your baby’s birth. I do this by sharing some wonderful evidence based techniques and tools through the different antenatal and postnatal programmes I teach and ensuring I listen, respect and support the decisions of mum and her birth partner and provide them with tools and information to enable them to explore all options available to them!
I can’t reiterate enough that I am here to support you, support your choices and help you to ask the questions you want to of the health professionals and ensure that you are in control of your pregnancy and birth. Whilst being armed with the confidence that someone is there in their corner yelling (with Pom-poms) ‘WOOHOO YOU ARE AWESOME AND YOU CAN F#%*ING DO THIS’
I am not here to tell you what to do, because you are unique and there is no ‘one size fits all solution’ when it comes to birth… but what is most important to me is that you have the inner confidence to rock this birth and parenting thing your way!
And…I have experience of these wonderful tools that I can offer to you…
In Spring 2015 we welcomed our second baby into the world
She was born at home after 4 days of early labour (taking her time in our true family style!) but once she decided to come, it was quick! My waters went and 12 minutes later our calm but alert baby arrived into the world and instantly found her place in our little family
So when I say I know the wonderful techniques I share with you in the sessions I teach work…I really do know, from personal experience
I know what it’s like to remain calm and relaxed when your birth takes a different path to the one intended ; I know the importance of having a kick ass birth team of cheerleaders that will protect your birth space and treat you like the queen you are ; I know that the right birth for you on the day is a positive experience & I know it doesn’t have to be a quiet, zoned out affair! I laughed, I joked, I hummed that baby out (loudly and primally) whilst all the time taking myself back to my cottage by the sea through fabulous self hypnosis.
I am an expert in the techniques I teach and I have practised them personally for many hours with great results!
I am on a continuous journey of adding techniques & programmes to help my wonderful clients and 2018 holds many fabulous additions to what I can offer you!
If you are in Milton Keynes, Buckingham, North Buckinghamshire, Bicester, Bedfordshire, South Northamptonshire or surrounding areas, please do get in touch to find out more! I’m always happy to answer questions and explain more! (I loves a good chat!)
Peace and love
