West Cumbria Hypnobirthing

Congratulations on your pregnancy, and thank you for visiting West Cumbria Hypnobirthing.

Please have a look around the site and do not hesitate to give me a call or an e-mail if you’d like to talk more or if you have any queries.

Hypnobirthing will teach you techniques to help you have a relaxed, calm and controlled birth. Whether you are having a natural or planned c-section, you have given birth before or you are apprehensive of giving birth. Hypnobirthing can help you have a positive birthing experience.

I offer group and bespoke hypnobirthing classes in West Cumbria and to find out more click below. I have trained with KG Hypnobirthing.



Hypnobirthing is a full antenatal class which, when explained, makes so much sense.

Hypnobirthing is logical, gentle and insightful. It will empower you to nurture yourself during pregnancy, to relax, and to trust your body and your baby. The course will teach you and your birth companion simple but specific deep relaxation, massage and breathing techniques for a better birth.

Scientifically, if we are frightened or anxious during birth, there will be tension and where you have tension you will have pain!

I have an open minded approach, I am not prescriptive about how you birth your baby. I ensure you have the tools to navigate your birth as a team, to make informed decisions, to have the knowledge to make it a calm and enjoyable experience and to have the best birth for you on the day.


Hypnobirthing values the contribution of the birth partner and gives them a specific role to play.

About me

My name is Tamsin Graham and I am a hypnobirthing teacher.

My aim is to provide you with all the tools you need for an easier, more comfortable and positive birth experience.

I have trained with The Hypnobirthing Association (utilising the Katherine Graves method) and I am a registered member.

I set up West Cumbria Hypnobirthing after having my son, Ruben. I had completed a hypnobirthing course whilst pregnant as I felt unsure about what to expect in labour and wanted to to be in control of the decisions around my care. Initially my husband was sceptical about hynobirthing and how it could assist us however; once the first session was completed he engaged with the course and was excited for his role during the birth.

I had heard many negative stories surrounding labour and birth and they were often experiences with trauma, pain and medical intervention. Whilst I think we have to be very thankful for the availability of medical intervention when required, many people I have spoken with didn’t have the birth experience they wanted. Leaving them with the feeling that they were not in control.

Hypnobirthing can assist you and your birth partner in making decisions to ensure you have a controlled and calm birth. This will lead to a happy Mammy and therefore a Happy Baby!
