Hello, my name is Charlotte and I am a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher and Nurturing Birth Doula based in West Berkshire. I am also Mum to 3 wonderful children, wife to 1 wonderful husband and I am a complete and utter birth nerd!
When I had my first baby in 2006, my passion for pregnancy and birth was born; I knew that somehow I had to do something to support and empower women to have the positive births that they deserved – just like I had.
My second birth was equally as calm, relaxed and magical (she was born in her sac!) and I was even more determined to change the negative mindset that so many pregnant women find themselves in – that birth is a medical event and is going to hurt!
I then trained to be a Doula with Nurturing Birth in 2010 and was privileged to support many women through their pregnancies, births and early days of motherhood. Baby number 3 wasn’t far behind and again my positive mindset, confidence, calm and relaxed attitude, and understanding of the task ahead made for another quick, peaceful birth!!
I chose to put Doula duties on hold until my children became more independent… then I discovered Hypnobirthing! I couldn’t believe it; it was everything I had believed in and had practised with my own babies with scientific evidence to back it up, and even better… I could become a teacher and really make a difference to pregnant women and their birthing experiences!
I didn’t really have to consider it and soon trained to become a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher which is honestly the most wonderful “job” and I feel so lucky to be able to support pregnant women and their birth partners, and enhance their whole experience of pregnancy, birth and beyond.
