but more than that, we are passionate about the way women GIVE birth. The way we birth, the way we are supported and the way we are made to feel...those feelings and memories will stay with us for a lifetime.
Together, Erika and Wendy teach hypnobirthing antenatal classes using the Katharine Graves (KGH) Method which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. Teaching mums how to have a more comfortable and relaxing birth experience which benefits mum, dad and baby means that this is one of the most rewarding jobs ever and the feedback is overwhelmingly positive!
We like to keep things up-beat in the classroom and use a variety of teaching styles and techniques to keep things exciting as well as providing loads of resources. We teach group classes in Sandhurst, Berkshire, as well as private one-to-one classes up to 20 miles away from both Sandhurst, Berkshire and Waterlooville, Hampshire (Wendy is based in Waterlooville and Erika is based in Sandhurst).
We are both recognised Birth Doulas and Erika is also a recognised Postnatal Doula. We draw on a very broad range of skills, experience and knowledge whilst supporting mums and dads on the their hypnobirthing journey.
Hypnobirthing is a state of mind and a state of being in which you would hopefully achieve the birth you are hoping for. People always assume that you are looking for a natural unmedicated birth when you use hypnobirthing but that is not actually true. We will support you whatever your birth choices are, natural, medicated, induction or c-section, a calm and relaxed birth with positive parents benefits a mother no matter how she plans on birthing. There are no preconceived ideas about how your birth should be, we believe it is your baby, your birth, your choice.
Lastly, we are both very involved in our local community's Positive Birth Groups which are a place for ALL pregnant women - regardless of their background, experience or choices - to come together and share experiences, thoughts, feelings and insight about childbirth.
We hope you find everything you need on the website but sometimes it is nice to have that chat with the people themselves, so we invite you to call us if you like.
