Hi, I’m Yvonne. I’m mum to 2 children. It was during my pregnancy with my daughter that my interest in antenatal education and hypnobirthing really developed. When this interest didn’t go away after a couple of years I decided to train to be an NCT Antenatal Teacher (I regularly teach NCT Signature courses in Cheltenham and Gloucester) and a Natal Hypnotherapy practitioner. My personal experiences with hypnobirthing made me feel very passionate about sharing this information with others. Hypnobirthing gave me the tools to cope during long and difficult labours (as well as useful techniques for everyday life!). I felt relaxed, calm and confident throughout, and even though the births didn’t go quite how I was expecting them to, I found that it was a very positive, empowered and calm experience.
I fully appreciate that everyone’s journey to parenthood will be unique and that their needs will be different but I aim to support you to gain the information and tools that you need regardless of the type of birth you are planning and your approach to parenting.
”Yvonne was very helpful, clear, well prepared. She was very calm and relaxing – perfect style for this type of session. The workshop has made a real impact on our approach to birth as a couple – thank you so much!”

“Classes increased my confidence & left me feeling both relaxed & calmly excited about giving birth. During the sessions Yvonne was relaxed & created an accepting atmosphere where both my partner & I were able to be honest about of feelings, anxieties & hopes for the birth."
Although my labour didn't go to plan (I was induced and had an emergency C-section) the techniques enabled me to stay calm throughout, to have the confidence to voice my opinions and to make decisions which benefited me and my baby. I feel that without these skills and attending the course I would have found both pregnancy and the labour itself a much more worrying experience and that I would have had less confidence when faced with choices”

“Yvonne really helped us to think about our concerns and how to approach them more positively. She helped us to tailor calming techniques to suit us. It was all realistic and down to earth – easy to adopt, even for the cynical”
