Hello! I’m Kiran - an Antenatal and Baby Massage Teacher, and I’m very excited to be bringing my Hypnobirthing courses to Southcote and Energise!

A bit about me...

  • I have a PhD in Social & Child Psychology

  • I also work as a Behavioural Scientist in the Civil Service

  • I have two small children who keep me very busy and very tired!

  • I started my business during lockdown...

Ever since having my first baby in 2017, I’ve been fascinated by the power of women’s bodies to be able to grow, birth and nurture a brand new human! So in May 2020, when I gave birth to our daughter during the first national lockdown, I found myself with nothing better to do than support people online at all hours of the day. I could see that so many other parents were struggling with a lack of support, which made me realise that supporting and empowering parents through birth work was my calling (cheesy, but true!).

First, I trained up as a Baby Massage Instructor, and then trained as a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter. But most recently, I have trained as a Hypnobirthing Teacher.

After a traumatic first birth, I was left with severe birth trauma and anxiety during my second pregnancy. We decided to invest in a Hypnobirthing course and it was truly life-changing. It was healing, supportive and empowering, and a really lovely thing to do as a couple! I was calm and in control throughout my 2nd labour, my husband knew how to be a supportive birth partner and keep me in my zone and feeling powerful, and I felt like superwoman!

I want every woman to feel like superwoman after their birth and I know that it’s possible. It’s not all about natural, pain-free, drug-free births. It’s about removing the fear, uncertainty, anxiety and lack of control from birth and instead feeling calm, supported, informed and empowered. Every birth can be a positive birth.
