Jess was an absolute rock throughout my very intense homebirth. She kept me grounded and feeling safe when I thought I couldn’t go on. So grateful for her calm presence. ❤️
If you would like a positive birth experience and are looking into hypnobirthing or Doula support, Jess is your number 1 woman! Highly highly recommended.
There are no words that do justice to Jess and her amazing work. Teaching us the KG Hypnobirthing course, introducing us to lots of helpful techniques and holistic approaches, alongside supporting our individual needs and helping us to feel empowered. All of this meant that I had the most incredible birth experience for for my fourth and final baby, in the most unlikely of circumstances. All with Jess by my side, quietly supporting, encouraging and empowering me to be in control.
I cannot thank Jess enough for supporting me individually, whether it was being on the end of the phone or text, the wonderful Reiki treatments or just the helpful chats about life in general.

Despite going into labour 9 weeks early and having to throw my detailed birth plan out of the window, I had a calm and empowering birth experience. With Jess’s support I felt positive and focused in what could otherwise have been a terrifying experience.
When my waters broke Jess dropped everything to come to the hospital and stay with us throughout the birth. At this time we had only met once and our hypnobirthing classes hadn’t started. Seeing Jess walk in alongside my husband I felt overwhelming relief. Yes we are underprepared and the baby was arriving 2 months early but it’s ok - everything is going to be ok.
Jess worked seamlessly with the midwife, both occuping a difference role and worked together as a team. Jess just took the lead then empowered my husband to take over and mirror her actions.
We hadn’t had time to go through all our birth choices so made decisions on the fly. Prior to signing off any decision I turned to Jess and she instinctively gave me a short summary of reason and risk. I approved all the suggestions made by NHS staff but felt empowered to do so in a meaningful way because Jess was there to double check with.
Jess was completely calm and unphased throughout and her presence in the room kept me and my husband calm. She coached my breathing, gave me verbal encouragement at critical times, fed me snacks, got wet towels for my head, kept the lighting low. She managed to maintain a careful presence as someone ‘invite to support’, not taking over or causing conflict.
After labour Jess stayed with me until 3 hours afterwards to check we were ok physically and mentally. She has since been in touch to visit, support and check in often if we have had any problems or need any advice.
Without Jess I believe my labour would have been harder, I would have been scared, my husband would have been feeling helpless to support me and we would have had a very negative birth experience. Hiring Jess was some of the best money I’ve ever spent! Lorna Tallowin
Jess is wonderfully warm and compassionate lady. She has an amazing way of explaining / teaching techniques in a simplified and memorable way for the up coming birth of your baby. She’s makes the scary and unknown seem manageable and actually exciting. I would recommend her to any couple or ladies who want to receive a personal and trustworthy touch. She is, for me, still my first point of contact if there is something I’m struggling with no matter how big or small. I would like to thank her for all the support she’s given me even after the birth of my little boy.
Don’t worry, Jess is no mad hippy! She is friendly, caring and knowledgeable, and exudes a calm confidence befitting the hypnobirthing principles which she teaches. I loved our sessions and was left feeling mentally prepared for all eventualities, with a sense of control over my own destiny.
