Marie has spent almost two decades supporting women to have as positive a birth experience as possible. She has worked as a childbirth educator, a birth doula, the facilitator of the UK's longest running Home Birth Support Group and now as a Hypnobirthing teacher. She takes a balanced, non-judgemental and person-centred approach to helping women and their partners develop confidence during their preparations for birth, whether they plan to give birth in a maternity unit, a birth centre or at home.
Marie's Hypnobirthing Essentials offer courses which provide a high level of personal interaction for couples, individual women or small groups in a short time-scale.
Marie covers the following areas: Twickenham, St Margaret's, Strawberry Hill, Teddington, the Hamptons, Kingston, Isleworth, Hounslow, Richmond, Barnes, Putney, Fulham, Wandsworth, Battersea, Clapham and Balham.
I am the mother of two children and I have been a childbirth educator since 1995, having trained with the NCT.
I have prepared thousands of couples for labour, birth and early parenting in Twickenham, Battersea and the surrounding areas.
On a personal note, I benefitted enormously from hypnobirthing while preparing for the arrival of my second child. The birth was fast and completely natural; it was a joyous experience, to be cherished forever.
I hold a Diploma in Antenatal Education, a Diploma in Hypnobirthing and I am a member of the Hypnobirthing Association. I thoroughly enjoy putting Katharine's training into practice.
I specialise in offering short 'essentials' Hypnobirthing courses which are ideal for parents who are attending or who have booked an antenatal course (for example NCT or Active Birth). My courses are also ideal for any parents who are expecting a second or subsequent baby and for those who prefer a shorter course on the essential specifics of Hypnobirthing.
All courses include the Hypnobirthing book by Katharine Graves, the Colour and Calmness CD and a variety of relaxation exercises to help while you practise.
It is ideal if partners attend, although this is not essential.
ONE TO ONE COURSES: These can take place in the comfort of your own home at a time to suit you and your partner.
SMALL GROUP COURSES: You may prefer to host a small group of up to three other couples or attend at the home of another couple in your area. Groups are kept small to allow maximum participation and interaction.
'Hypnobirthing Essentials is an excellent way of letting go of your worries and replacing them with positive affirmations and a relaxed attitude to labour and birth. I would have liked to have done the course even earlier.' Vicky
'Marie's course has left me feeling more able to control how our birth progresses. It is something everyone who hopes to have a natural birth should do.' Alastair
'My overall impression is really excellent. I feel much more confident that a relaxed and calm birth is within my grasp..... I am looking forward to it and to meeting my baby'. India
'Hypnobirthing Essentials really helped us understand the importance of maintaining a calm (adrenaline-free) labour throughout i.e. without interruptions or obstacles (strangers invading our space), which means returning to the idea of home birth which we are now planning. Thank you! The relaxations were useful, especially the one about the leaves which I found very powerful. Your incredible knowledge about all aspects of birth was invaluable, with regard to the placenta for example. Learning a new more positive language was great as well.' Kay, before the birth
'We are delighted to announce the birth of our daughter. We had a lovely, smooth, calm, swift home birth in just 6 hours, with no complications and no tearing thanks largely to Hypnobirthing which we practised daily until labour started. We can't thank you enough. We also rented a pool and I laboured in water, though ended up giving birth on dry land. We went for placenta encapsulation and couldn't be happier with that either.' Kay, after the birth
'Hypnobirthing techniques helped me during my very quick labour. Breathing techniques to help me stay focused and calm and the visualisation especially during the down phase helped me feel in control. I had a fantastic labour experience which was better than my first and I credit part of this to Hypnobirthing. I would recommend to anyone'. Annette
'Hypnobirthing Essentials is very useful and beneficial for those planning a calm, relaxed birth'. Marina, before the birth
'I found the Hypnobirthing course very helpful in terms of focusing me on preparing for a calm and serene birth. Being pregnant for the first time, I had no real idea what to expect from labour, but Marie's course and the practice and thought I gave to Hypnobirthing helped me to feel that it was manageable and even an experience to look forward to. In the event, the techniques and mindset I learned helped hugely during the first phase of established labour in particular. Although it is not possible to control or predict the exact course labour will take, being calm and focused helped me enormously in the run up to and then during the labour itself, psychologically and physically and I would recommend Hypnobirthing wholeheartedly. Marie is a calm and encouraging instructor who I would not hesitate to recommend for the course'. Marina, after the birth
'We wanted to thank you so much for your course which helped me incredibly during labour. I managed to have the natural, swift and gentle birth I was hoping for! The midwives were all impressed to see how calm and relaxed I was. It was an amazing and empowering experience and I feel like I can achieve anything for my baby now. Hypnobirthing has really been a life changing experience.' Margaret
'The surges were intensive but my partner lead me through them with the hypnobirthing techniques. I am very thankful to you for sharing your knowledge with us!' Judith
