Hello! My name is Cheryl Samuels 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 also teach hypnobirthing and antenatal education courses in London for The Bump and Baby Club - London’s leading award winning independent provider of antenatal education, hypnobirthing and fun pregnancy events.

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 Katherine Graves Hypnobirthing, 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 training in massage therapy and aromatherapy for birth. 

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 and antenatal education and I love being able to build relationships, give support and provide continuity for women. 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.
