Welcome to My Hypnobirth, I am an experienced Hypnobirthing practitioner running group Hypnobirthing classes in Forest Hill, SE23 London. I offer private Hypnobirthing classes in London and the surrounding areas.

You may have recently heard about positive, empowering birth stories and are already aware of the profound effects using Hypnobirthing can have on both mother and baby. Or perhaps you are unsure about Hypnobirthing, you may have had a previous traumatic birth experience and are asking the question ‘Does Hypnobirthing really work?’

Hypnobirthing is clinically proven to improve the birthing experience for both mother and baby. It is a complete antenatal course which will educate and prepare you to look forward to birth with positivity.


For a Better Birth Story

Even if you are super excited and looking forward to the birth of your baby, we have all been exposed to negative birth stories from friends, family, movies and books about birth. All this input builds up and creates a background noise of fear and worry about giving birth, in both the conscious and subconscious mind.

The My Hypnobirth course will teach you how to let go of these fears through self-hypnosis, relaxation and visualisation. This, education about the physiology of birth, alongside how to navigate the maternity system will enable you to welcome and prepare for a better birth story, whatever that may be for you.

“Your hypnobirthing course was by the far the best thing I did during my pregnancy; I came away from the lessons feeling knowledgeable about my options surrounding birth, confident and empowered.” Alice & Alistair

“My labour and delivery was the best I could have hoped for and overall my experience was amazing” Claire & Eammon

“Thank you Lydia for a really inspiring, reassuring and informative few days. We both found your style of practice very easy to engage with and appreciated your wealth of knowledge which you generously shared without feeling 'preachy' or too intense. Since doing the course we feel we are able to let go of any fear and look forward to putting your methodology into practice and enjoying the process” Frankie & Curtis


“Thank you Lydia for coming to our home today, we really had a lovely day and deeply enjoyed the course! I didn't expect this from my 'rational' partner at all, but your approach really won him over. We felt like this was a fully tailored session, answering all the needs we'd shared with you. We also both felt super comfortable and at ease around you. It was just really lovely. We both already feel so much more ready for it. I've already recommended you to a friend and will be sure to tell all the mums-to-be I know how fantastic your teaching is and how lovely you are.Thank you again” Aurora & Paul

“We absolutely loved every second of our evening classes and are both in a completely different place now to when we started, you’ve opened our eyes to a new world of calm and control. We just feel we have so much knowledge now, more than we could have imagined. Really thank you so so much, you were a superstar. So calm and clear and gave us just the right information and have just been incredibly kind and thoughtful. Thank you again and again.” Georgie & Oli

“I am so, so happy we chose to go with the home birth. You have been pivotal to making this all happen and making this such a positive experience for us and I am forever grateful for all you have done for me” Beth & Jeremy

“We felt calm and together because we felt informed and knew what to expect. I didn’t know how pivotal hypnobirthing was going to be to our labour” Josie & Adam

“I found your course great, so relaxed and informal and really felt we could open up and chat and I loved that Mark did as well. I'm starting to listen to the tapes more and love the idea of a little bag of bits for the hospital to help calm and soothe me. I know Mark and I feel that much more prepared for just having open discussions about birth with you and the other couples these past couple of weeks!” Jennifer & Mark

"We had such a great weekend, we both found it so beneficial and are so pleased we found you, it was a pleasure to have you in our home (and the cats liked you!). I put my breathing into good practice yesterday before my Haematology appointment which was great and really helped " Alexa & Dave

"What a weekend! We had the best time at Lydia's on a two day Hypnobirthing course. We would highly recommend it to all new mums to be and anyone pregnant. If you are thinking about it, stop thinking and just do it! We feel so confident and knowledgeable, Thank you Lydia! We can't wait to get poppet out now!" Danielle & Tom

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the class! We had a great time, learnt so much and already feel much more calm and in control over my pregnancy and the birth to come. I will be recommending you to a few of my friends who have just told me they are also pregnant! “Hannah & Martin

“As novices to Hypnobirthing we found Lydia to be very informative, supportive and knowledgeable. The course is really interesting and easy to understand. We thoroughly enjoyed it and we're enjoying the "homework". We've found ourselves feeling excited and looking forward to the birthing experience rather than feeling worried and anxious” Rachael & Sam

“I just want to say a big thank you for your course. I honestly felt like I’ve come away really excited about what’s to come and have a lot less anxiety about giving birth. I know Dave has also come away feeling like he knows his role too so he now feels a lot more connected to the pregnancy!” Becky & Dave .
