Hello, I'm Amy...The Hypnobirthing Yoga Teacher...
I'm a yoga teacher with 5 years experience (4 years specialising in pregnancy), a hypnobirthing teacher and self confessed pregnancy and birth geek. I'm also a mother of two children.
I'm a fairly practical, straight talking sort of person; my classes are relaxed, fun and informative and I love seeing the friendships grow and develop from them.
I have been practising yoga since 2010 and I have been hooked ever since my first class. In 2015 I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course, followed by my 50 hour Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training in 2017, both at Whitespace Studio in Milton Keynes. Since then I have also added Mother and Baby Yoga and Post-Natal Yoga qualifications with Sally Parkes.
I trained as a hypnobirthing teacher with Katharine Graves in August 2020, at a time when due to the fast changing Covid 19 rules and restrictions hypnobirthing was more important than ever to empower and prepare women for birth. In 2021, seeking out more training, more knowledge and more support I joined The Birth Uprising, a fantastic group of incredibly passionate and supportive birth workers. I am fully independent, non-biassed and always take an open minded, scientific approach.
I love to see the transformation that people go through with hypnobirthing. So often people come to classes with fear and trepidation about birth but by the end they are excited and looking forward to their birth for what it is - the day that they will meet their baby, rather than a day to be feared and endured.
I teach with passion because I know the difference that it can make having gone through an unprepared, medicated and medicalised first birth followed by an empowered second birth that I was at the centre of rather than a bystander at.
