About us2018-07-30T12:52:14+00:00

My name is Janna and I am just like you; a hardworking mum, partner, sister, daughter and friend. I am also a KGHypnobirthing Teacher and a Registered Midwife with 10 years experience of caring for women having all kinds of births; pregnancy and birth are my passion! A mother of 3 who has experienced three very different births myself including a csection,  waterbirth and homebirth, I used KGHypnobirthing in my second and third pregnancies and births and the difference it made was profound! I went from being tense and worried before Hypnobirthing to excited to give birth in a few short weeks. I had such a fantastic experience I would give birth again tomorrow if I could, which is why I became a Hypnobirthing teacher so I can help you to feel the same way. You can read my birth stories here.

Good information about pregnancy and birth can be found in lots of places, but KGHypnobirthing is the only thing I know as a Midwife that actually makes a difference to your experience of giving birth. Rushes KGHypnobirthing courses are accredited by the Royal College of Midwives of which I have been a professional member since 2011. We don’t promise the ‘perfect’ birth, however my experience as a Midwife caring for many hundreds of women is that KGHypnobirthing always makes a huge difference! Hypnobirthing is backed up by scientific evidence that shows improved outcomes for mothers and babies who use Hypnobirthing; therefore it is a privilege to be a Rushes Hypnobirthing Teacher and to be invited into your life at such a special time in order to make it even better for you and your baby!
