Congratulations you’re pregnant!



My name is Cheryl Samuels I am a practicing NHS midwife, an antenatal and hypnobirthing course teacher for Bump and Baby Club across London and most importantly a mother of four children (including twins!). 

I love teaching women and birth partners how to enjoy a calm and positive birth experience, however they birth their baby‘s. I myself had three very different gentle and calm births including a drug free hospital birth, an induction of labour with twins and a peaceful home birth. 

My courses are practical and unbiased. I like to inform families with the facts, all of the relaxation and active birth techniques you will need, my best midwifery tips for a calm birth and trust that you will decide what is best for you. 

I have supported hundreds of families through their journey from pregnancy, birth and parenthood as a community midwife at home births, on the high risk labour ward and also as a private antenatal education teacher. 

I get to see first hand as a midwife that great evidence based antenatal education and hypnobirthing techniques make a positive difference every time. Knowledge is empowerment and that in itself brings calm!

What does the evidence say about hypnobirthing? 

  • Women experience shorter first and second stages of labour.
  • The use of  pharmacological analgesia is reduced.
  • Women present later at hospital (>6cm).

My course aims to teach you how to feel confident, positive and excited about your birth. If you are feeling nervous, fearful or just want to educate yourself with great unbiased, evidence based antenatal education taught by a midwife, then this is the right course for you. 

You will learn to navigate the healthcare system, make informed decisions and enjoy relaxing hypnobirthing techniques to help you have the best birth possible on the day, however you birth your baby. 

The course is held at the beautiful Hummingbird Pilates and Yoga studio, Reeds Farm Estate, Roxwell Road in Writtle, Chelmsford. So you can really relax, enjoy a weekend of hypnobirthing antenatal preparation and make new friends.

'I cannot recommend highly enough the hypnobirth school . As a father-to-be the course, and Cheryl, have been invaluable for me. My wife and I are having our first child and we really didn’t know what to expect. If like me, you think that the birthing process means rushing to hospital and having doctors and midwives delivering your child then this course will help you. Now, I am looking forward to playing a huge role in supporting my wife to have a calm birth.' - Paul
