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 am the co-creator of Hello Baby antenatal classes which I lead in partnership with an experienced midwife. Together we also co-facilitate Bushey Bumps & Babies, a community group for pregnant and new mums to share experiences, access support and make new friends.
Birth is my lifelong passion and I am dedicated to helping women and their partners have a positive birth experience, however that journey unfolds. 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 and versatility of the techniques that I felt compelled to share them with others. I can honestly say I love giving birth!
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 evidence-based information and support they need to feel empowered, excited and positive about birth.
