(BA Hons, DipHB KGH)
I help pregnant women who are scared of labour or feel unprepared, release fears, gain confidence, and increase their knowledge to achieve the best possible and positive birth for them and their baby, through a down-to-earth hypnobirthing and antenatal education.
Thank you for visiting The Hampshire Birthing Company. My name is Susanna, I'm a mum of two and a qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher. I live in a small village in North Hampshire with my husband J-P and our two sons and I can't wait to meet you.
Hypnobirthing & Me
My Hypnobirthing journey started when I was pregnant with my second child. Whilst I was vaguely aware of Hypnobirthing when pregnant with my first, I dismissed it as 'hippie jargon' under the misguided assumption that I was not the sort of person it was aimed at. I could not have been more wrong. Whilst my first birth was relatively uncomplicated it was chaotic, out of control, and ill-informed.
The birth of my second son was entirely different. Employing Hypnobirthing techniques, my husband and I worked together to create a calm environment where I was comfortable, confident and completely in control. I have no doubt that had I attended a KGH course prior to my first birth, it would have been a very different, positive and empowering experience.
So convinced was I by Hypnobirthing and its techniques, that I decided to train as a practitioner during my second maternity leave. I trained with Katherine Graves and the Hypnobirthing Association and have a KGH Hypnobirthing Diploma, a course accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. . I am now delighted to be able to offer both group and private KGH classes in North Hampshire and the surrounding counties.
With my own first hand experience of childbirth, both with and without Hypnobirthing, I have a deep understanding of the difference Hypnobirthing can make to a mother and her partner, both during pregnancy as well as birth itself. Teaching evidence based techniques in a logical and practical manner, my aim is for you to continue your pregnancy feeling informed, confident and calm so you may experience the best birth for you and your baby and have your own positive birth story.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
The four week course has been absolutely amazing and deeply enlightening! We both left feeling far calmer about what's ahead and excited for the whole process...
Susanna was a wonderful teacher, incredibly intuitive as to what we needed, gentle, informative and someone who we could really laugh with. I cannot recommend her enough!
We have loved our sessions & are so sad they are over.
Honestly you have completely changed my whole perspective on birth and I can’t thank you enough!
