Congratulations On Your Pregnancy.
Whether this is your first or fourth child…whether you’re feeling apprehensive or already confident…I'm here for you offering an empowering and unique blend of hypnobirthing and pregnancy yoga approaches that have benefitted many families.
Birth is as unique as we are. Some of us will feel called to birth in hospital, others at home or in a birthing centre. The Hypnobirthing and Pregnancy Yoga techniques offered to you are all about feeling the shift in ourselves when we believe in ourselves, are well prepared and can feel relaxed on the day. A focus of my sessions is that they are practical and experiential, so the tools like breathing techniques feel completely natural by the time you reach your birth.
I have combined my 8+ years of teaching to create the variety of offerings below.
At present sessions can be in person in our Margate space or online.
I'm here to support you - just give me a call if you'd like to chat through anything.
All the best,

Private Pregnancy Yoga Sessions
Would you like to feel calmer during your pregnancy?
Or learn breathing techniques for birth?
Or perhaps your body feels sensitive/uncomfortable and attending a general class isn't ideal at the moment.
Or perhaps your baby is breech/posterior and you want advice on helping them turn.
I'm here to support you and these private yoga sessions are tailored entirely to what you need at this time.
We use postures (asana), pranayama (breathing practices), visualisation and deep relaxation or yoga nidra/hypnobirthing relaxations to support you in feeling grounded and relaxed.
Feel free to call if you’d like to chat though what you’d like to gain from the sessions or email to book.
Per Session = £50/hr
4 sessions (paid up front) = £170
Pregnancy & Deep Relaxation Video
These 8 x videos vary in length from 10-45 mins and include:
Yoga sequences for different stages/energy levels
4 x Hypnobirthing breath techniques
2 x Deep relaxations (yoga nidra & hypnobirthing)
Pregnancy Yoga Class (online or in person)
These online sessions support you in your pregnancy by offering a mixture of postures (asana), meditation, breath work, deep relaxation and hypnobirthing practices/ideas, alongside the sense of community of sharing these sessions with women who are also pregnant.
The aim of the classes is to help you feel deeply calm and grounded, alongside feeling tensions in the body melting away.
£12 per class
Congratulations on your pregnancy. I'm passionate about offering hypnobirthing and pregnancy yoga, especially as they were invaluable in my own pregnancy and birth. It's brilliant to see the tide turning in the birth world, with so many women now utilising these techniques to overcome (often inherited) concerns and approach their birth feeling empowered, confident and grounded. That's how many of my clients have described feeling, and I'd love to share these approaches with you.
I trained in the Mongan Method of Hypnobirthing and Pregnancy Yoga in 2013. I have since trained with the Mindful Mamma school of Hypnobirthing and also in the postnatal period with yogic techniques to support that. I teach modules on hypnobirthing/deep relaxation on pregnancy yoga teacher trainings.
I'm here to support you - do give us a call if you'd like to chat through anything.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I can't recommend Anna Brook's hypnobirthing course enough. I went into it not knowing all that much about hypnobirthing, and feeling quite nervous about how to cope with my birth, but came out of it feeling confident, empowered and excited - ready for whatever happens on the day, be it 'to plan' or otherwise. What I liked most about Anna's approach is her open-mindedness. She advocates what's best for you and your baby and doesn't stipulate rights or wrongs, which is really refreshing in a world that can feel full of quite black and white opinions on what you should and shouldn't do. Her course has left me with a deep trust of myself and my instincts - thank you so much Anna.
