From Bump, to Birth and Beyond

About Me

My name is Katherine, and I am a Little Birth Company trained Hypnobirthing Instructor.  I'm 31 and live in Essex with my wonderful husband Shane and our two beautiful girls.

I started my career within the NHS in the maternity unit, fluttering between clinics and the labour ward. I did this for a few years, however became increasingly disheartened by the lack of support provided to women before, during and after birth.

After the births of my two girls, I  knew exactly where I wanted to be, helping families prepare for the exciting and beautiful journey of birth.

I am a bit of a knowledge junkie, I am constantly learning new things and as well as completing my Hypnobirthing instructor training, in the past year I also have also trained as an Essential Oil Therapist. I have previously worked as a birth and postnatal doula and will soon be providing "Pregnancy Relaxation" & "Positive Caesarean Workshops". 

What can I offer you?

Pregnancy is an exciting time, however it can also present feeling of anxiety and fear. Using the antenatal knowledge provided on the course along with hypnobirthing breathing techniques and MP3's I will able to help you create your own space of calm and enable you to feel fully prepared and at ease with your upcoming labour. The techniques and tools you will learn during your course will help you to feel empowered and in control of your birthing experience.  One amazing part of being an hypnobirthing instructor is that I am able to remain completely un-biased and provide any information you may require and therefore open you up to a range of possibilities you may not have been previously aware of.

"After hearing traumatic birth stories from friends and family, we were very nervous about the upcoming birth of our Daughter. We were recommended hypnobirthing and thought it would be worth a try and we did not anticipate just how helpful it would be. Me and my husband recently completed private hypnobirthing classes with Katie, and after the first session knew we had made the right choice. We felt so supported and each session was jam packed with knowledge and skills to take with us moving forward. We have been able to carry forward a confidence that was missing before. We could not recommend this class enough!"  - Hannah
