Hello Bodhi Mamas!
Congratulations on your pregnancy; best wishes for the birth of your baby and welcome to Bodhi Mama! It would be my absolute pleasure and privilege to support you on your journey towards a positive pregnancy, birth and beyond.
My name is Lindsey and I'm mammy to two wonderful little people; Bodhi is a very lively 4, nearly 5 year old (starting school in September...eek!) & River is a full of giggles 18+ month old. Along with my husband/superdad Santosh, we all live in our happy little home in the Tyne Valley, Northumberland.
I am a passionate and experienced Birth Educator, Hypnobirthing specialist and advocate. It’s become my thing to promote and teach the benefits of Hypnobirthing since it worked so well for me during both of my pregnancies and most recently helped me achieve my dream of giving birth at home.
I am also a singing for well-being practitioner - check out what I get up to with my Singing Mamas hat on!
Bodhi means 'enlightened' by the way and that is how Hypnobirthing will make you feel too - All Mamas can be Bodhi Mamas!
I was trained by Katherine Graves, a leading UK expert in Hypnobirthing, and have a KGH Teachers Diploma in Hypnobirthing, accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.

My birth preparation courses are a fully comprehensive antenatal programme, taught through the lens of Hypnobirthing. This means we leave no stone unturned in terms of what you need to know and want to know about pregnancy and birth. As well as the physiological side of things, we also practice techniques which focus your mind and body on releasing fear and building confidence in your ability to give birth. And when I say birth, I mean all types of birth: spontaneous labour; induction; c-section; assisted delivery; at home; in hospital...you name it. Preparing for your birth and by applying hypnobirthing principles will always make a positive difference.
