Confident Childbirth

Welcome to Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing


My name is Jane Hodgkin and my wish is for women to have a good experience of childbirth. I founded  Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing over a decade ago – a completely flexible programme to fit your needs.

You or you and your partner are welcome to come and attend sessions with me here in Acton, West London. The flexible four-session framework has helped many women to:

  • clear away any concerns
  • gain confidence
  • develop easy and enjoyable skills such as self-hypnosis and pain control
  • enjoy the rest of the pregnancy

Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing classes can help you with any and all of the issues listed to the right – and more!

The aim is for you to have a positive experience of the birth of your baby, and I would like you to feel in control, no matter what birth you want or how it proceeds.

Like all the Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing practitioners that I’ve trained, I will respect your wishes and respond to your needs. I don’t have any set idea of how a birth ‘should’ proceed – my aim is to empower you to ask for what you would like and what your body and your baby need.

My large and calm office is in Acton, West London, easy to reach by car or public transport. Please ring me on 020 8743 0962 or email jane@confidentchildbirth.co.uk to discuss what I can offer you.

Benefits of Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing

Many mothers report that learning hypnobirthing technques and becoming confident in their body’s ability to give birth has helped them to relax and enjoy the remaining months of the pregnancy more. And some of the skills are also designed to support you in looking after the new addition to your family.

Each person has their own set of needs and wishes for childbirth and Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing offers you the means of meeting your particular goals rather than anybody else’s. I believe it’s really important also that you have the confidence to collaborate positively with the medical team supporting you and I’ll help you develop skills for this.

I’m able to be adaptable and to help you in a very flexible way because I’m also a fully-trained and qualified hypnotherapist.


“Confident Childbirth training gave me hope and courage to take a chance and embrace the unknown. I’m not sure I would have known how to cope without the experience. I’m hugely grateful and would wholeheartedly recommend Confident Childbirth.”
