Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I know it can be a rollercoaster of emotions - exciting and scary in equal measures. And fear of the unknown is a biggy!

But here's the thing. Iis possible to prepare for birth in a way which feels confident and positive...whilst also being realistic and preparing you for the unpredictability of birth.  My world is full of stories of amazing, empowering birth experiences!  Antenatal courses teach you about the process of birth. Hypnobirthing teaches you about the process of birth + how to influence that process + how to stay calm and feel in control throughout!

If you're suspecting that birth can be the most incredible thing you ever do - you're right! Save your spot today on my Tunbridge Wells hypnobirthing course!

    Hi, I'm Rachel!

    Sevenoaks hypnobirthing teacher Rachel Quickenden

    I live in Tonbridge and I help expectant and new parents to get rid of the anxiety and the overwhelm that is so normal in pregnancy. I will get you trusting your body and feeling more confident about your decisions - so you can stop all the late night Googling and instead feel prepared and excited to have your baby.

    I plug the gaps in our over-stretched NHS maternity system so that you aren't left thinking "why did nobody tell me about that?"... and instead feel confident and in control as you move through pregnancy, birth and beyond. I work in-person, in and around Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks (and online when requested).

    "Rachel was a voice of calm, kindness and empowering wisdom" - Emma & Joe, first baby
