What people Say

“The whole experience was amazing, and I totally put it down to your hypnobirthing classes, knowledge and confidence your bestowed on us.” 


—  Gemma, Fulham


What is all the fuss about?

Most people think hypnobirthing is about breathing, or just the relaxations and affirmations. But you may be surprised at just how much science and logic is behind hypnobirthing. A hypnobirthing course reframes birth, helping parents-to-be understand how we all biologically birth our babies the same way, but no two women’s labours will be exactly the same. Once we remove the fear through education and working with our brain we can then view birth in a more positive way.  Which, alongside the hypnobirthing tools and techniques, can make labour less painful and quicker.

Stilettos to Strollers London Hypnobirthing course is a full antenatal education and provides the knowledge for you to have a calm and controlled birth experience. 


Throughout the hypnobirthing course you will learn about the multitude of options available to you when having your baby and this knowledge will help you to decide what  type of birth you'd like. However you decide to birth your baby this hypnobirthing course gives you the tools to achieve a calm birth and you will take away a new found confidence, and the ability to make informed decisions. 

The STS London Hypnobirthing course focused on achieving the best childbirth for you, where-ever and however you decide to birth your baby.  This course is effective in reducing the fear of childbirth and helps couples to look forward to the day they meet their baby. As part of the sessions you will also cover step by step what to expect and how to cope with each stage of labour. 

Some of the other benefits of Hypnobirthing:

  • You are likely to experience a more comfortable birth because you understand what the sensations are and how your body works

  • Your baby will arrive into a relaxed environment, because you know how to create this

  • Your first hour together will help bonding and offer health benefits to both mother & child. 

  • Length of labour is often much shorter with hypnobirthing births.

  • As a result less drugs and medical intervention are used. 

  • The physical impact of labour is  often reduced, meaning mums are up and about sooner

  • Most importantly for many your birth partner will learn how to support you and have a central and active role in the birth. Creating a truly shared experience.

This is London based course, with group venues in Chelsea, Kensington, Richmond and Twickenham  not only equips you with the skills used for hypnobirthing , but uniquely gives you the knowledge to understand your options with your hospital, due to Jemma's  relationships with a number of London NHS & Private centres.


Through the knowledge gained couples are empowered  to make confident choices around the birth of their child. and Jemma is also there to support you right up until the birth of your baby

The philosophy

I want women to be proud of their birth experience.


As a premium hypnobirthing course and birth support led by a modern mum the aim is to replace fear with confidence, preconceived ideas with facts and to empower women to take charge of how they bring their baby into the world. 


This is hypnobirthing taught in a contemporary way,  in stylish locations. 

This hypnobirthing course has been designed to provide a full, well rounded antenatal program.  Which encompasses KG & MM Hypnobirthing methods, relaxation, up-tp-date information and statistics along with learnings from active birth and Jemma's own experiences. The classes are designed especially for mothers in the UK. and will keep  constantly evolving to keep up-to-date with the latest evidence and research. As well as teaching you the techniques of hypnobirthing, it gives you the information to make your own decisions to help achieve the best outcome for you and your baby. Depending on the course the length will be between 6-10 hours. 

Jemma offers one-to-one hypnobirthing courses where she is am happy to teach in the comfort of your own home around Central, West & South West London or Surrey areas. The group classes are also kept small to ensure a personalised experience.

There is the option of weekend hypnobirthing groups held over 2 x Saturday afternoons in Richmond/Twickenham or 4  x week nights in Fulham. 


Hypnobirhting courses take place across four fantastic luxury venues.

All are easily accessible by, tube,  south west rail and road. 

Please remember that all classes count as antenatal care so your employer is obliged to offer you & you partner time off to attend.
