Nice to meet you!
Chloe, founder of BirthMind
I am a qualified independent hypnobirthing instructor, trained by MamaSerene and accredited by the Birth Bliss Academy. As well as teaching hypnobirthing, I also run Hello Baby antenatal classes for first and second time parents in partnership with an experienced midwife. Together we facilitate Bushey Bumps & Babies, a fortnightly group for pregnant and new mums to share experiences, get support and make new friends. I have a passion for helping women and their partners have a positive experience of birth, however that journey unfolds.
A lifelong birth enthusiast, my journey to becoming a hypnobirthing practitioner first began with a childhood fascination with all things birth and baby. My own experience of anxiety led me to use hypnobirthing as a method of staying calm and feeling in control during the births of my two children. I was so amazed by the power of the techniques I'd learned that I felt compelled to share them with others.
For those with children, giving birth is generally agreed to be the most memorable, transformative and profound moment of a birthing person's life. It is an experience that will stay in your heart and mind forever. My wish is that everyone has access to the information and support they need to feel empowered, excited and positive about birth.
