This section is less about me and more ABOUT YOU. If you have reached this page, it’s because you have made the first step to achieving a positive birth experience for you and your baby, so congratulations!
Ultimately, this is YOUR birth; you and your birth partner will be the people in charge of every decision you make from this point forward and I am excited to have the opportunity to teach you the hypnobirthing skills and tools that will empower you to do so.
Allow me to share a little bit about myself to help you decide whether I am the hypnobirthing teacher for you.
I am Katy. Mum to Maggie, my spirited and sassy daughter born in June 2016 and Jasper, my firecracker son born just 18 months later on New Year’s Eve 2017. My husband Chris and our fur baby, Little Bear complete our family. We live in Tunbridge Wells.
We were lucky enough to stumble across hypnobirthing in early pregnancy with Maggie. Prior to that, I knew nothing about birth other than what I’d seen on TV! Since then, I have lived and breathed hypnobirthing and I am still applying the skills I learnt to this day as a Mother. I can honestly say, hypnobirthing changed my life. Every parent deserves to have a positive birth experience, which is why I decided to retrain as a hypnobirthing teacher after Maggie was born.
I am a certified KGHypnobirthing teacher, founder of The Birth Thing and most recently, trained with Hollie de Cruz aka @theyesmummum to enable me to teach the yesmum® birth project syllabus; the exact same course I used to welcome my children into the world. I feel strongly that we aren’t taught enough about birth and how our bodies work from a young age and I want to be a part of the movement to help change that. Without the education that hypnobirthing gave me about my body and birth, I believe I would have a very different perspective. You can read my birth stories here.
