About us

Our collaborative group of doulas, antenatal teachers and hypnotherapists share the same philosophy of gentle, empowered birth and bonded parenting

Birthsense was founded over 10 years ago and has since taught thousands of families through our range of antenatal classes. We also aim to support self-hypnosis for the birth year with our BirthSense self-hypnosis MP3s and provide help in the postnatal period with breastfeeding and early parenting preparation.

We campaign at local hospitals to raise the profile of birth with hypnosis and to bring the best level of care to our members.

 

TRACY SEALEY

Hypnobirthing Teacher

Birth Doula

Tracy is the Managing Director of Birthsense and has been running classes in Cambridge for many years. She was introduced to hypnobirthing by a friend who used the techniques. She attended this friend’s birth and was absolutely blown away by what a different and mind blowing experience it was compared to what she had known. She had to know more and thus her hypnobirthing journey began. She completed her training and gave up her job as a qualified teacher in order to change the face of birth as we know it. Tracy is currently in the process of becoming a qualified counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist.

BECKY YOUNG

Hypnobirthing Teacher

Birth and Postnatal Doula

Becky has a background in psychological support and trained as a doula in 2017. She has been very busy supporting many births since! She was introduced to hypnobirthing very soon after her training when one of her early clients attended Tracy’s course. Becky went with her in order to learn the techniques so that she could support her with them in labour. She was so impressed by the Birthsense course content, that when she decided to start teaching herself, there was only one place she was going to go. In addition to teaching and doulaing, Becky has almost completed her breastfeeding counsellor training.

HARRIET LOWE

Hypnobirthing Teacher

Birth and Postnatal Doula

Harriet is a Birthsense graduate! After completing the Birthsense Hypnobirthing Classes in preparation for her own labour and birth, Harriet hired a doula and had herself her very own positive birth experience! She was so inspired that she felt she had to help give this gift to as many women as she could. She trained as a doula and began teaching Birthsense soon afterwards. Prior to this Harriet had been working closely with families for many years in her roles as both a nanny and a maternity nurse. She has a Counselling Diploma and is currently completely a BscHons in Psychology.

JESSICA SLENDER

Hypnobirthing Teacher

Birth Doula

Jessica discovered hypnobirthing just before the birth of her second child and was amazed and so grateful for the difference it made to her birth experience. Following this she was inspired to want to help women in the same way she had been helped. She trained as a hypnobirthing teacher and birth doula, took a brief break to have another baby and is now offering the full Birthsense antenatal preparation programme. Jessica has also taken active roles in the Maternity Voices Partnerships at both the Rosie and Lister hospital.

A note to birth professionals: We are a smaller group of practitioners than other birth hypnosis organisations because we only accept birth professionals as teachers, and train them ourselves in techniques for birth hypnosis. If you’re a doula, midwife or medical professional, would like to be part of BirthSense and run the range of BirthSense™ courses in your area, please contact us for information..
