Tonya’s passion for Hypnobirthing began with her own pregnancy in 2012. As a new mum-to-be, she was looking for a technique that would help her to achieve the natural birth that she was hoping for within a medical system more inclined towards intervention. She attended a Hypnobirthing course as part of a small group and was delighted when she was able to use the tools and techniques that she had been taught, to achieve a wonderful and empowering birth experience.
When her son was 3 years old, Tonya took the opportunity to train as a KG Hypnobirthing teacher. She was fortunate to be taught by Katherine Graves – the author of the KG method. Tonya chose to study the KG method, as it is approved by the Royal College of Midwives in the UK and because it provides complete antenatal education, preparing the parents-to-be as fully as possible.
Current evidence-based research forms the foundation of Tonya’s teaching. She combines this with her experience and knowledge of birthing within the UAE, in order to provide up to date, ongoing support to her clients.
