Hello! Delighted you have stopped by for a look. I am Gillian, a qualified Hypnobirthing teacher and practicing pharmacist. I'm a married mum to two lovely little boys who are the very reason I am here sharing Hypnobirthing courses.
Giving birth is such a monumental life experience and I feel hypnobirthing can offer real value in preparing for a positive birth. I am thrilled to help you take the first steps in this journey as I am passionate about empowering others to make informed choices, while supporting them to have their best birth possible on the day.

The Simply Positive Birth Hypnobirthing course is a modern, practical approach to hypnobirthing. Think "hypnobirthing for those that didn't think it was for them!" I offer a contemporary, accessible take on hypnobirthing based on evidence, delivered in an informal, interactive way.  Through teaching, I am constantly evolving my offering to clients to reflect their needs. As evidence evolve so does our course. This means you can be assured you are getting the most relevant and up to date information.

Furthermore, as a practicing pharmacist,  the fact Hypnobirthing is an evidence based programme sits perfectly with my scientific mind! Current research into the use of hypnosis in childbirth shows a reduction in labour duration (both first and second stage) reduction in the need for pain relief and a reduced rate of surgical intervention.

I am perfectly equipped to process and discuss changes in evidence and what implications that would have in your birth plan decision making.

Lastly, I have worked in this caring profession for over a decade and it is a privilege to support you at this incredibly special time of life!


After taking the course I now feel
far more informed and ready for labour and birth, more so than from NHS antenatal classes
