Hello! My name is Cheryl and I’m a registered practising NHS midwife in Essex and founded The Hypnobirth School as I wanted to create fun, comprehensive, holistic hypnobirthing courses that also taught practical evidence based information by a health professional.
I teach hypnobirthing and antenatal education courses across London for Bump and Baby Club, London’s leading award winning independent provider of antenatal education, hypnobirthing and fun pregnancy events. I’m really excited to be teaching their antenatal classes from January 2020 at Acanteen in Chelmsford and you can book your place here - www.bumpandbabyclub.com
I am also part of the Blood to Baby team www.bloodtobaby.com we promote awareness and education worldwide on optimal cord clamping, which provides lifelong benefits for babies.
I absolutely love midwifery, I have supported hundreds of women and families on their journeys through pregnancy, birth and parenthood. As a midwife I can clearly see how hypnobirthing helps women and their birth partners to enjoy a calm, confident and positive birth experience however they birth their baby and the benefits of this go way beyond birth.
I trained to become a hypnobirthing teacher with the renowned Katherine Graves of KGHypnobirthing which is accredited by The Royal College of Midwives, after graduating with a first class BSc degree in Midwifery at Anglia Ruskin University. I have also completed additional diplomas in massage therapy and aromatherapy for childbirth.
It is such a privilege to be a midwife and to be part of someone's pregnancy and birth experience. My passion and expertise is teaching hypnobirthing, antenatal education and complementary therapies for pregnancy and birth. I love being able to build relationships, give support and provide continuity for women and their partners. I have four beautiful children myself (including twins!) with my husband Jamie and we have a gorgeous terrier dog called Lucky!
Helping families to feel educated about birth, their choices and have a healthy, calm and positive birth experience is what I aim to do at The Hypnobirth School.
