Mindful Hypnobirthing Classes

Birth & Postnatal Doula

Supporting You In Pregnancy, Birth, and Beyond

Welcome to Barefoot Birthing!

Over here you’ll find practical and mindful birth preparation courses, as well as birth & postnatal doula support all provided by experienced and passionate Rachel Cunliffe DipHB(KGH).

Are you feeling anxious and nervous about birth? Or you feel good but know you want to feel more prepared? Has someone mentioned this strange term Hypnobirthing and you want to know more? Or perhaps you’re intrigued about hiring a doula? Then you’re in the right place!

Giving birth to your baby/babies and becoming a parent (whether for the first or fifth time) should be a memorable experience for all the right reasons. All course options and the personalised support Rachel can provide will ensure that you and your partner (if you have one) feel informed, prepared, empowered, and excited at what lies ahead.

Whether you’re in early pregnancy, the final few weeks, or have already had your baby, whoever you are, whatever your birth/parenting choices are, you’re welcome here, and I can’t wait to hear your story and support you on this crazy journey.

Rachel is knowledgeable, patient, inspiring and 100% committed to your positive birth experience.

Rachel is an awesome teacher and will put you at ease the moment she says hello to you. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

The course content was brilliant and I’d go as far as saying I learnt so much more across the sessions with Rachel than the antenatal classes we attended.

We loved the whole experience and would definitely recommend this course to anyone currently pregnant and thinking about Hypnobirthing.

Abdominal birth courses.

Learning hypnobirthing and mindfulness for a planned abdominal birth (caesarean section) is just as important as preparing for a physiological birth, hence why we have a dedicated course for you.
