Hi, I'm Jenny, mum of 2 gorgeous children, and I am a hypnobirthing teacher, pregnancy and post natal yoga teacher and all round birth specialist, working with pregnant women and couples across Cardiff and Newport and surrounding areas to prepare for a calm and confident birth.
I also am a big supporter of new mums on their journey into motherhood. It is such a huge life shifting event and mums can often feel lost, resentful, exhausted and overlooked.
I believe every woman deserves a positive birth experience and non judgemental support on their journey into motherhood.
Since giving birth to my daughter in 2013 using hypnobirthing techniques, and then my son in 2015, I have discovered a passion for helping other couples prepare for their birth in the most positive way. I have also been instrumental in helping many local new mums to get out and meet people, to trust their instincts and to remember who they are underneath their 'mum' title.
Between 25 and 34 per cent of women report that their births were traumatic. Quite often this is because they don’t understand the physiological process of birth, they don’t realise the effect that fear will have on their birth, and they don’t understand all the things they have influence over, things that they can control.
I want to teach women, and their birth partners, valuable tools and techniques which will help them trust their bodies and remove the fear of birth and enter into parenthood with the best start.
As my past clients will tell you, I always go the extra mile for any couples that I work with and am available for support and advice up to and beyond your baby's birth because I genuinely care about you, your birth experience and your new life as a mum.
I run monthly group hypnobirthing classes, as well as bespoke one-to-one hypnobirthing sessions in your own home. I also run a weekly pregnancy yoga class, and am soon launching my new mums yoga & social group.

I attend regular CPD study days and work closely with other practitioners and birth professionals, so if I don't know something, I know someone who will!
I keep my knowledge up to date by reading the latest research.
In my life pre-birth, I was a chartered accountant! Quite a shift in focus but I am very privileged to be following my heart and changing so many women and babies experiences of birth.
