Congratulations on your pregnancy!
BabyBien offers a range of hypnobirthing classes and antenatal courses to help you overcome any fears you may have about birth and give you all the tools and techniques you need to prepare for the right birth on the day. Whatever your needs and budget there is a birth preparation option to suit you whether that's a group hypnobirthing workshop, bespoke private session, the Wise Hippo birthing Programme or homestudy with our online hypnobirthing course - BabyBien has the perfect option to help empower you and guide you on your journey to motherhood!
I'm an experienced hypnobirthing practitioner and positive birth coach, having started my own hypnobirthing journey in 2012 and since worked with over 200 couples. I'm here to equip you to negotiate your birth together as a team, able to make informed decisions, with all the tools you need to make it a calm and enjoyable experience, and to have the best birth for you on the day. Hypnobirthing recognises the important role that your birth partner can play and will also have a positive effect on your baby – strengthening your bond and giving them the most gentle, loving start in life.
Are you pregnant and finding the journey a challenge? Does everybody want to share their experience with you….even the negative ones? Has this left you feeling overwhelmed and not sure of what matters to you?
Have you had one or more previous birth experiences that have left you feeling that this time needs to be different? More on your terms, based on informed choice and that your birth experience truly matters?
If you have answered yes to any of this then The Wise Hippo birthing programme can help you.
The Wise Hippo is a fully comprehensive antenatal programme encompassing hypnobirthing, taught over 4 sessions totalling 10 hours. The course is accredited by the Royal college of Midwives and FEDANT approved. The Wise Hippo will teach you how to achieve the right birth for you and your baby through the skills, knowledge, hypnobirthing and relaxation techniques contained within the course.
Areas covered within the course are:
- The picture of childbirth today
- Defining hypnosis
- Acknowledging pain
- The physiology of birth and the impact of fear
- Mind and body connections
- Time distortion
- Birth choices
- Medical intervention
- Birth planning
- Fear release
- The power of positive touch

“What is a Doula?” and many variants of this question are asked of me often.
So if you know then I apologise for the next section and feel free to skip ahead, if you don’t then here goes…….
A Doula is (usually) a woman who is experienced in childbirth and can offer continuous support for women, their partners and families through pregnancy, labour, birth and early parenthood. We provide impartial, non judgemental and evidence based unwavering support. We are not clinicians but work in harmony with them to assist you with the best birth experience possible.
Evidence shows that the continuous presence of a Doula can:
- Increase the chance of spontaneous labour
- Reduce the need for pain relief during labour
- Reduce the time in labour
- Reduce the risk of intervention such as instrumentally assisted birth/Caesarean birth
- Increase parental positivity of the birth experience
- Increase the initiation of breastfeeding and continue beyond 6 weeks.
Please take a look at my Doula Uk profile here.
My wish for you is that you and your partner own your birth experience. As your Doula I would support this by being guided by your choices, nurturing and encouraging both of you to be confident in the choices you have made for yourselves and your baby.
I'm an experienced local midwife and I'm madly passionate about empowering every woman to have a positive birth experience. Over the years i've worked out the not so secret recipe for having a positive birth and I'm really keen to share this with as many people as possible. It's as simple as confidence (self belief), taking ownership of your birth (having the knowledge to make the right decisions for you), and a strategy to keep calm and comfortable during labour. I teach all of this at my antenatal classes as well as all the essential information on early days with a newborn baby including feeding, sleeping and baby care.

The Hypnobirthing book by Katharine Graves The KG Hypnobirthing course relaxation MP3s ‘Colour and Calmness’ sent via email on booking the course so you can reap the benefits straight away. I also offer refresher classes for parents who have used hypnobirthing in a previous pregnancy and just want to polish up their techniques.
Mindful Mamma is the original one day Mindful Hypnobirthing™ class in the UK and has been running since 2008. It accompanies the best selling book ‘Mindful Hypnobirthing‘.
This is no ordinary hypnobirthing class, it’s about your mindset and your partners mindset. We focus our teaching on how your thoughts, and your partners thoughts and actions, can affect your body during pregnancy and labour.
By including practical hypnobirthing and mindfulness techniques as well as enhanced understanding of the psychology of birth we teach you as a couple what you need to know if you want to feel really prepared for your baby’s birth.
Do you want to be in control, have the techniques to help you?
Do you need your partner to understand their role during the birth and how they can support you using hypnosis and mindfulness?
If so then this is the hypnobirthing class for you. Run by Jenny, a qualified midwife and hypnobirthing practitioner since 2014, who has a passion for supporting couples in their journey. Jenny aims to build realistic expectations, feel confident in the body’s ability to birth and provide simple techniques and tools which enable parents to embrace and connect with the birth experience with a clear, calm and present mind.
