Hello, my name is Helen Evans and I live near Bristol with my husband and two gorgeous children, Eloise and Oscar. I am the founder of Bloom&Birth, a proud HypnoBirthing mother and a Certified Antenatal Educator affiliated with the HypnoBirthing Institute (HBCE). I am also a Solution-Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist, a highly qualified Holistic Therapist and a Member of the International Federation of Reflexologists, who for the last five years has specialised in the field of fertility, pregnancy and postnatal care.
I began my training with the Bristol School of Holistic Therapies in 2003 and went on to train with the internationally renowned Hypnobirthing™ Institute to gain my HypnoBirthing Practitioner qualification. I am a fully certified HypnoBirthing teacher and I run private and group HypnoBirthing courses throughout Bristol and North Somerset. My work gives me an enormous sense of satisfaction; helping families through the amazing psychological, physical, emotional and spiritual journey that is pregnancy and birth is a real joy!
I am a huge advocate of HypnoBirthing, and my expert tuition, empathy and passion will ensure that your pregnancy and birth is as healthy, relaxing, safe and enjoyable as it possibly can be. My classes are fun, informative and are designed to prepare you fully for birth; so that when your birthing day arrives, you feel in control and wonderfully positive about the life-changing event that is about to occur. I believe that you should be able to birth your baby in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy. As such, I will equip you fully with the skills and knowledge to have the best birth possible.
And yes, most of my mum’s experience births that are completely pain-free! All they experience is pressure. Whilst I cannot absolutely guarantee that your birth will be without any discomfort, I do promise that, so long as you put in the practice required, you will achieve a birth that is satisfying, life-affirming and most of all, free from the fear and excruciating pain that we have wrongly come to accept as the ‘norm’.
My HypnoBirthing classes explode the myth of pain as a natural accompaniment to birth. Without doubt, HypnoBirthing works. I know from personal experience. Read my own HypnoBirthing story here.
