about me

Hi, i'm kate

Pleased to meet you! I've used hypnobirthing myself and been teaching it since 2013 and have lots of experience to help me guide you through and prepare for the birth that you want. I’ve worked with hundreds of couples over the years and I love my job. Being a part of your journey from pregnancy to birth is a privilege.

I had my son, Jonah, in November 2012. It wasn’t a perfect birth (I had high hopes for a water birth but ended up needing to be induced) but, thanks to the hypnobirthing techniques that I’d practised during my pregnancy, it was a relaxed and beautiful experience. The perfect birth for me and my baby.

Like a lot of women, I was nervous about the birth, not knowing what to expect and scared that I wouldn't be able to cope with the pain. Most of the stories and images of birth on TV and in films that we see are pretty negative and knowing that I was about to give birth and experience something similar to what I’d seen & heard about was making me start to feel quite anxious.

I felt out of control and wanted to find a way of preparing for birth that would help me feel back in control.

That’s when I came across hypnobirthing and everything changed for me.

Helping you have a positive birth experience

A positive birth is not about having a 'perfect birth', it is about being in control, making informed decisions and knowing the best ways to keep you calm, relaxed and comfortable so that you have the right birth for you.

Choosing hypnobirthing was the best decision I could have made, for me and for my son. My experience has changed my perspective on birth and inspired me to become a hypnobirthing teacher so that I can help other women have the positive and relaxed birth experience that they deserve.

why choose ME over other hypnobirthing teachers?

It's important to trust and have a connection with your teacher - only you will know if I'm the right fit for you. Helping you to have the most positive birth possible is what's important to me and I offer a relaxed and non-judgemental approach - whatever type of birth you're planning.

I've worked with hundreds of couples over the years and have some lovely feedback which you can read to help you decide. I also have some beautiful birth stories from past clients for you to read through.

My experience

I qualified as a hypnobirthing instructor and established BabyBien in 2013. I have trained with several different hypnobirthing brands - Natal Hypnotherapy, The Wise Hippo and the Little Birth Company. I wrote my own online hypnobirthing programme which launched in 2016. I joined the Little Birth Company in 2019.

I'm passionate about helping other women have a positive birth and have been actively involved in my local Positive Birth Movement group since it started in 2014, and running my own group since May 2015. I've been a guest speaker at Kingston and St.George's University talking to midwives about hypnobirthing and positive birth & regularly give talks for Mamas & Papas at their Expectant Parent events.

I look forward to working with you and your babies!
