About Your Teacher
Hi everyone! My name is Rachel. I started my midwife training in 2011 and have had the privilege of supporting expectant parents ever since. I have seen the benefits of hypnobirthing and am passionate about helping women and their partners have positive, empowering birth experiences. I also used hypnobirthing during my own pregnancy and birth and can now say first hand that it works!
I believe in informed choice in all aspects of pregnancy and birth, including antenatal education. Most NHS Trusts offer free antenatal classes of some sort - just ask your community midwife. Whilst working as an NHS midwife, I have taught these parent-education classes (often to large groups) and whilst it's great fun, it can be challenging condensing everything there is to know in to 4 hours!
These classes may be enough for some, but I truly believe that knowledge is power and so I wanted to provide the option of thorough, evidence-based, fun antenatal education where I can offer more time and support to those who are interested. So, I undertook the RCM (Royal College of Midwives) accredited KGHypnobirthing Teacher Training Course in 2019 and Blissful Birthing was born! The satisfaction that this brings is amazing! (just take a look at my Testimonials page to see why!).
Disclaimer: please note that although I work as a midwife (and am therefore a total birth geek!), this is an entirely separate role to that of being a hypnobirthing teacher.
Blissful Birthing offers private antenatal education sessions in the form of KGHypnobirthing. NO personal clinical advice given.
