Founder Katharine Graves, Hypnobirthing Specialist

Katharine GravesTrained by the Hypnobirthing Institute (by Marie Mongan herself), Katharine provides the core hypnobirthing techniques and also has a unique breadth of experience, gained over many years in complementary medicine, that has given her the expertise to offer guidance in many areas to care for the health and wellbeing of expectant mothers, fathers and new born babies.

She has a rare depth of understanding of childbirth having trained as a doula with Michel Odent, the leading obstetrician who started water births. Katharine's holistic approach has made her courses increasingly popular, with a growing list of moving and positive birthing stories.
