Hi I'm Erin and I’m a mum of 3 to two wonderful little girls and a gorgeous baby boy. I live in Bromley on the borders of Greater London and Kent.
After having 3 very different births, my interest and passion in childbirth and birth preparation increased with each child, until I decided to take the leap and train to become a hypnobirthing instructor and share my passion for empowering women to have an informed and memorable birthing experience. Having given birth 3 times I have a fair bit of first hand experience! I’ve had births on wards, on midwife led units and at home, in water and without, epidurals and drug free births, been induced, had PROM, spontaneous births. I’ve formula fed, bottle fed, expressed fed and breast fed. I’ve experienced PND, and come through the other side. And all my experiences have led me on a journey to become a hypnobirthing instructor. I hope to help other women give birth positively, feeling safe, listened to, informed and empowered!
I offer The Little Birth Company complete course, as well as their 3 hour workshop, delivered at my home in Bromley, although I can also come to you or teach over Zoom online. I cover Bromley and surrounding areas from Lewisham to Orpington.
The best class you could ever ever spend your money on!! I wish I had met Erin for my first birth as a start, as it was a terrible experience and that was only a single pregnancy. Second pregnancy with twins I’m so so glad that I took my c section class with Erin. So helpful to know options that we are never told at the hospital. Ways to deal with keeping our selves calm, lots of amazing techniques. It has turned me from a nervous reck to such a calm relaxed and positive attitude towards as c section considering I’m also having twins! Honestly if I could put a video to express my feelings towards this course so people can see how really amazing I feel after taking the class and receiving my goodie bag ready for my c section of my twins. My partner has also benefited so much, as he’s not the type to ever talk about things or even discuss our first birth of our son.
Erin you are amazing!!!!!!
My husband and I recently completed a hypnobirthing course with Erin. It was brilliant. We are expecting baby #2 in September, and I have been feeling anxious and emotional about preparing for the birth. I am now looking forward to it, and feel confident that whatever happens, we will be well prepared and know what is important to us. I was worried my husband wouldn’t get on board with the hypnobirthing, and whilst he will remain his reserved self, Erin’s explanations have convinced him, which is awesome! We had some really specific areas of concern that Erin talked through with us, and she had really given us so much to think about it a super positive way. Really worthwhile course. Thank you so much Erin!
To be honest, I wasn’t entirely convinced when my wife suggested the idea of hypnobirthing. My wife was definitely the driver of this idea, but I’m glad she was! Having completed the course with Erin, I would recommend her and the course whole heartily.
We found Erin’s enthusiasm and knowledge Invaluable and it’s given both of us confidence of what to expect. For me, this gave me a purpose and understanding of how to advocate on my wife’s behalf without feeling like a simple passenger.
The birth plan guidance and relaxation tools were also great, however I did manage to fall asleep listening for the first time!
Thanks again Erin, we look forward to introducing baby!!
Having had very little experience or interest in labour and pregnancy, I highly recommend this course. For both your partner and yourself. I found it extremely helpful and prepared me for supporting my wife during labour. The course explained the best approaches, what to expect and how best to deal with any type of situation we could potentially come across. What I also really liked is that despite the name, Hypnobirthing is very logical and scientifically based which suited my learning style completely! Would highly recommend this course and Erin to any first time parents or those who have had negative experienced of labour and birth.
Hypnobirthing has an unhelpful name. It is not hypnosis in the comic sense of people zoning out and forgetting their own name. Rather it is a relaxation technique that helps to allow the body to function as it is designed to do.
From a partner’s perspective, it allows you to help your pregnant lady find her inner strength and perform her biological function. The main techniques are breathing, creating a positive mindset and making the environment as conducive as possible to a good birth. If you like making your house nice to help your partner have a nice life, why wouldn’t you make her birth space nice to have a nice birth?
Personally I think everyone should do hypnobirthing because it is not all or nothing. Performing bits of hypnobirthing technique (good breathing, positive mindset and making a nice environment) are essentials for all births. So even if you only take away pieces from the course and regardless of the method of birth you want, it can only help you and your partner on your way to a good birth experience.
I can only begin to describe how beneficial this course has been for both myself and my birth partner. I've gone from wanting a c-section with maximum pain relief to really understanding my options when it comes to birth and the implications that my choices can have. I previously had feelings of fear and dread when talking about a natural birth but can honestly say I'm looking forward to the birth and feel very prepared for what's in store. Now I can truly enjoy my last months of pregnancy knowing that I have a beautiful and positive birth to look forward to. My birth partner said it was the best course he has ever done and is completely engaged with hypnobirthing. He is very clear on his role and also excited! We cannot thank you enough for everything that you have taught us. You have completely transformed our perspectives on pregnancy and childbirth. I would love to see as many people as possible do this course, regardless of their birth choices, because the amount that you learn will fill you with so much confidence and positivity.
The virtual sessions worked very well and I don't feel that the experience suffered in anyway for not being face to face. You became a very trusted resource beyond the topics of hypnobirthing alone and we felt comfortable asking you anything. Loved the follow-up emails with bits to watch / read in between sessions. Overall, professional, knowledgeable and approachable.
A big thank you to you from both of us for making this such a lovely positive experience. We’ve learnt so much and can’t wait to use all the techniques when the time arrives. We are now just so excited about labour and birth and cannot wait to meet our little one. We felt we really got to know you as a person and built a great relationship with you even over zoom and you really added the personal touch with welcome gifts, birth plan cards etc. Plus being so down to earth we felt we just clicked with you! We are now huge advocates of Hypnobirthing and like I said I feel that every woman/couple should learn this as I think it makes such a huge difference to the birth experience.
It has been so useful for us learning about the pregnancy and birthing experience. We now understand how important it is to feel in control and how to make the choices perfect for us. We now feel very excited and empowered going into this experience rather than fearful and anxious. It’s had a wonderful effect on my state of mind especially during a global pandemic! My husband also now understands how important his role is as my advocate, birthing partner and as a father and I think that’s really important. Erin was great, she was well informed, practical and supportive. We felt we created a brilliant relationship over the course of 8 weeks.Thank you so much and can’t wait to share with you how it all goes.
We had 4 sessions with Erin. We found the course content so informative helping us to prepare for the birth of our first child in the summer. Erin is both professional and personable and really knows her stuff.
I feel confident and excited for our journey but also prepared and informed. The course materials have been a great addition, I’m feeling calmer and more in control after listening to the MP3’s and I know it’s benefiting me the baby and my husband.
I would highly recommend Erins services!
