I truly love what I do..

Hi, I’m Claire. I am a mother to two gorgeous little girls Flora and Rosie. My passion for hypnobirthing began with my eldest, when I was 6 months pregnant. I so passionately want to share this knowledge with others and to help you feel relaxed empowered and ready to enjoy what can be a wonderful experience. The course teach brings you closer to your partner, so you can both understand and enjoy the lead up to meeting your baby!

My story:

I was beginning to get pretty anxious about the impending birth. Someone suggested I look into Hypnobirthing and gave me the name of this brilliant book by the original lady who founded Hypnobirthing, Marie Mongan. When I took the course, in Barnet, with my partner we enjoyed it so much, it all began to make sense and my anxiety quickly subsided. When both of my girls decided to make their appearance, I had this amazing feeling of calm and felt incredibly excited. My husband was totally amazed at how I went into my own zone and as he said ‘you were like a different person’ Dominic was able to use his tools he had learnt to assist me with my labour. It was just great, we worked as a team for the whole time.

NB. My courses are not a quick 4 hour course, you have at very least 8+ hours with me as I want you to get the very most from your time and your investment. We will work together to make sure you leave your course feeling knowledgeable, excited and ready to meet your new member of your family! I am also on hand for any additional phone or email support. I often have mums texting during their labour for some top up confidence, love this!

My training

Having completed the full Marie Mongan training, I am certified with the Hypnobirthing Institute and a trained hypnotherapist for birth. This qualification is fully accredited by The Royal College of Midwives.

I am certified to teach The Yes Mum Birth Project by Hollie Cruz, which is a a modern, refreshing course. We have great ways to involve your partner, after all they are so important in your process of pregnancy, labour and birth.

I am certified as a Mindful Rebozo Practitioner, through Sophie Messenger. This is a session using a scarf for comfort and relaxation during pregnancy. Using this and the relaxation turning scripts together can be effective in turning your baby from breech to OP ready for birth.

I am also training to use the Three Step Rewind Therapy which will be available from November 2019.

Give me a call for a very informal chat, if you have any questions or drop me an email. I cover all of Barnet, Haringey and Enfield.

I really look forward to meeting you and your birth partners soon!
