Are you worried or anxious
Join me and I’ll teach you how to have a Fearless Birth.
This was me just after birth, perfectly happy and with my gorgeous boy… 12hrs before it was a very different story……
I myself didn’t have the best experience with my childbirth, and afterwards that got me thinking, how could i have made this better. When I found out I was pregnant I was so excited but the nerves kicked in pretty soon as I started to think about birth and how this baby was actually going to come out of me!
I went to pregnancy yoga classes which were great for my physical body but did nothing for my mind and birth education. My husband and I went to the hospital Antenatal classes which in fact made me more fearful as they told me all about the drugs on offer and the instruments like forceps they would use to get my baby out of me.
I read several books on giving birth, but none of them portrayed the experience in a positive light. Instead, they presented it as a medical procedure that often resulted in complications and even a need for a C-section. This narrative triggered the FEAR in me, as I had hoped for a natural birth.
I went for a routine appointment two days before my due date and I casually said I haven’t had time to stop and feel baby move as I’ve been so busy moving house (yes I know I’m crazy moving at this time!) and before I know it me and my Mum were hurried out of the door and sent over to the hospital for a scan. All fine as yes I wanted to be safe but what happened next I didn’t realise I had the power to control.
Everything was fine as the scan showed and my baby were perfectly safe, happy and moving. I was then told to come back in the next day at 2pm in the afternoon for an induction. But why? Baby was fine I was fine so why was I being induced? I didn’t think to query this as I had been told by the Doctor the man in the white coat that this was going to happen so I just followed suit. It didn’t even occur to me what was happening as no one explained it (but then again I didn’t ask any questions as I didn’t know what to ask or that I had the right to query it)
So I went in and was induced. The induction took its time which I later found out is totally normal if baby isn’t ready to be born. So my waters were broken. I didn’t have a clue what was happening and I went into full active labour with the pain. No warm up bang straight in. I wasn’t in control I had no one to encourage me to breathe deeply as my contractions had such little time in between to focus and all I wanted was the drugs, which made me unaware of what was happening. I only came round when my baby was actually coming out which by the way I was pushing and screaming like crazy because that’s what I had seen in the movies right so why wouldn’t I do that.
So after the birth of my beautiful little boy there were many questions in my head. Why was I induced? Turns out hospital protocol once you have been in for a scan. Which I later found out I could have said no to if I had known I was allowed a voice. Why were my waters broken? To initiate labour but maybe if I had asked for more time this would have been avoided. Maybe my whole birth story could have different if I knew what I knew today – especially the screaming and panting to get my baby out so don’t watch birth on the tv!
I spent the next 8 years studying and teaching pre and post natal yoga, then spent a further 4 years studying and teaching Hypnobirthing by KGH and then my brand new course for the modern day mom, The Om Moms Hypnobirthing Toolbox.
I now teach women globally how to prepare for a better birthing experience.
Here you will find out exactly what you will be learning in each step of the course. You will also receive a bonus sample of the course where I explain exactly what Hypnobirthing is.

Here are some testimonials from parents who have joined me in
person on my Hypnobirthing courses.
So when should I start Hypnobirthing?
My advice is earlier the better so a good gauge is when you start to think about birth and think eek i need to read, plan, do something, anything now.
You need time to listen to your audios as these are not a one off, these are daily during the later stages of pregnancy.
This is not an exam we are cramming for, this is your birth we are preparing for. So let me help you prepare and share your journey with me.
So what exactly is included in this online course?
It is split up into 4 Sessions
This is a course to be done by you when you have time and when you feel in the mood to do it. You can go back over things, re-watch and your all important Hypnobirthing breathing and relaxations are all on audio and in a video to help you as much as possible. What’s more they are set in the beautiful scenery of Scotland to enhance your relaxation as you transport yourself there in your mind as the visualisations are very beneficial for total relaxation as it helps you let go quicker.
This is also a course for both you and your birth partner. There is lots for them to do too so get them involved. Breathe, move and learn together.
The exact process for how to control your mind
which is your introduction to Hypnotherapy and Hypnobirthing where we look at the mind and how it works. For example how what we or others say affects our headspace and has the ability to change our entire day and outlook. We look at the mind body connection and how important it is to understand when the two work together effectively anything is possible. And if you don’t believe me let us chat after session one!
The complete guide to relaxation
is all about the zen. Think breathing, think relaxation, think meditation and oh so much more. And don’t worry if you’re not the zen type there is something for everyone here from simple easy breathing techniques to long relaxations using guided imagery. You don’t have to be zen to do session two you just need an open mind to accept it. And if all things zen make you happy then get ready for a relaxing journey.
is about your body. How it works, how it moves and what will make it work and move more efficiently to help you feel good in pregnancy and enhance your birthing experience. When our body feels good (even with a heavy bump) we feel good. That’s the mind body connection right there again mom. This section has everything you need to know from the pelvic floor health to yoga-ing your way into labour.
is all about birth itself. Starting with before birth with birth plans and packing bags to contractions and how to breathe your baby out. A guide through labour and the different routes it may take. We will also look at after birth and the Golden hour (the magical hour after your baby has entered the world) just so you know it doesn’t stop as the baby is born. No, this is just the beginning!
