Hi there! I’m Colleen the person behind Harmony Hypnobirthing…
If you’re thinking of booking a class with me, but want to know more about me first then you have come to the right place. Back in 2015 when I was pregnant with my first baby I was excited but also scared, unprepared and clueless! Which is something a lot of my clients can relate to. Luckily I came across hypnobirthing and it completely changed my pregnancy, and subsequently my birth. Learning hypnobirthing, along with my weekly pregnancy yoga practice, allowed me to be in tune with my changing body and to really understand how I could birth my baby is a calm and magical way. I ended up with my waters going in my yoga class (maybe I was too relaxed!) followed by a three hour labour and a totally natural water birth at Darent Valley hospital. I became so obsessed with this transformation that a few months after giving birth I completed my hypnobirthing teacher training and Harmony Hypnobirthing was born. I’ve since then added more qualifications to my birth business, including my yoga teacher training and worked with countless families as they prepare for their birth.
When I’m not teaching, I am kept very busy by my two children, my miniature schnauzer Flo and my part time day job doing marketing for an events company. In my limited spare time I enjoy my own yoga practice, reading and looking for new adventures. Before kids me and my husband Matt travelled a lot (we did a round the world trip) but these days I tend to stay closer to home with family camping trips or exploring kid friendly places in Kent which I blog about over on Kent Kids Days Out.
