Based in Bournemouth & also covering Poole, Christchurch, Wimborne & London, I am Rose – East Dorset’s longest-running hypnobirthing service (since 2010) & hypnobirthing mum to a 14-year-old.

How do you feel about giving birth?

Are you hearing many horror stories about it and maybe starting to worry about losing control and feeling pain?

Or perhaps your head’s in the sand not wanting to think about it.

Nobody is born with a fear of childbirth. No one!

But, throughout our lives, the media, our friends and family members do all feed us stories about how birth is. 

However, those are other people’s stories and it is those stories that cause us to imagine and believe how our birth will be for us.

And guess what?

It is our expectations that make us scared and unsure about our ability to give birth and it’s that uncertainty and fear that nearly always causes birth to be painful.

But there is another way!

You CAN make your own story.

You’ll learn how to move away from thoughts of dread and fear because you will unpeel the negative layers & conditioning & retrain your brain not to be frightened.

This course will give you the confidence needed to help make your birth experience a joy.

Many of my clients enjoy pain-free, positive birth experiences. They sometimes report feeling some pressure and powerful sensations but not pain.

Discover how to unleash your true birthing goddess. She’s often buried beneath all the negative stories, conditioning and layering.

The inspirational Katharine Graves was my own practitioner & I am qualified & experienced in The Mongan, Wise Hippo & KGH methods.

As a result of my own experience, you can learn from someone who has been through the positive, life-changing, empowering Hypnobirthing transformation herself.

And most importantly of all, following your hypnobirthing sessions you will have gained the tools and mindset to feel calm throughout your birth experience.

Hypnobirthing is clinically proven to improve the birthing experience for both mother and baby. Besides that, it is a complete antenatal course which will educate and prepare you for birth with positivity.

Group courses take place at my residential practice (the summer house at the bottom of my garden) here in the Charminster area of Bournemouth.

One-to-one sessions are held either in the expectant parents’ home or at my residential practice depending on your preference.


Gemma – Bournemouth
The midwife said I was one of the calmest people she’d ever seen.

Aisha, Hants
Thank you for everything, especially showing me childbirth isn’t a scary thing! It’s thanks to you I was able to stay calm, in control & enjoy the experience of birth

Jenny – Poole
Everybody should do Rose‘s course. My second birth was an amazing, enjoyable experience. Despite going against all advice I had my baby girl in a birth pool at home with absolutely no pain & total confidence in my choices.

Katie – Bournemouth
Rose is an amazing hypnobirth instructor who gave me confidence to birth in complete control. I recommend this course to everyone.
