What is Hypnobirthing?Hypnobirthing is a practical, logical, antenatal education which can help you explore the role fear plays during pregnancy and birth. It will also teach you how you can reset your subconscious to release any negative associations and instead view birth as a natural process that our bodies know how to do.
I’ll teach you the physiology of birth and you’ll see that once you let go of fear, your body will work naturally and very efficiently and your birth can be calm and comfortable. I want you to feel in control because the decisions and actions you’re making now can have a huge impact on your birth experience. My hypnobirthing classes will provide you with all the knowledge, information and support you need to make informed, intelligent decisions.
You’ll be giving yourself the opportunity to have the best birth for you, your birth partner and your baby.
What I Offer
I currently teach two courses: Complete Hypnobirthing and Essential Hypnobirthing at your home which means you’re relaxed in your own space and let’s face it when you’re pregnant it’s nice not to have to travel too much! Dates and times to suit you. In case you don’t know, you can get paid time off for hypnobirthing classes. Please scroll down for more detailed information about the courses.
We are all completely unique and so is the way we give birth. It’s really important to me that I empower women and their birth partner to feel in control and by the time they finish the course to know that they are the expert at their birth. The emphasis really is on you being your own guru. Prior to the course we will have a 30 minute phone call or Skype session (free of charge) to give me an opportunity to understand exactly what’s going on for you in order that I can shape the course to meet those particular requirements. An ideal time to take the course is when you are in your second trimester, giving you time to process everything and practise the techniques.
Hypnobirthing works whenever you do it so get in touch and let’s have a chat about how it can work for you. I can teach mums on their own or with their birth partner. Birth partners are welcome and in my experience they are a huge help at the birth because they have a clear role and are really knowledgeable. Mums say they couldn’t have done it without them and that the experience has deepened and enriched their relationship.

Hi I’m Anna Robertson and I’m a certified Katherine Graves Hypnobirthing teacher. I live in East Dulwich with my partner and little boy Moses. Before embarking on this exciting adventure, I was a training manager for a Homlessness charity. It was great because I got to do what I love; support people to overcome their barriers and live the life they were born to live.
I’m guessing you’re probably pregnant if you’re reading this right now. How are you feeling about giving birth? Excited, empowered, confident? Brilliant! I certainly wasn’t when I found out I was pregnant in January 2016. The fact is most women feel anything from disconnection to real fear about the birth. Sad isn’t it? I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way…if you learn hypnobirthing. That’s exactly what I did and I absolutely credit it with giving me the tools to have a wonderfully relaxing pregnancy, a four hour labour and a magical home birth. The thing that I had been so terrified of turned out to be the most positive, life-affirming experience I had ever had. How can I not let everyone else in on the secret?
