Coastal Birthing and Beyond began as solely a place to teach HypnoBirthing classes. My passion for empowering women during their birth has evolved to be bigger and better than I could ever have imagined. It is now a service that offers education from Conception to Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond.
My love for clean eating and living has inspired Coastal Birthing and Beyond to incorporate more education surrounding nutrition and ways to nourish ourselves and our babies to grow, thrive and live a happier and healthier life.
Those who know me also know that my love for clean living and eating goes hand-in-hand with sustainable living. I hope that in providing more information I might inspire others to make better choices in their daily habits that benefit our world — this could be as simple as switching to a reusable coffee cup!
I am constantly working to expand this online service and bring greater content to you all as well hold frequent Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond Events and with this comes the increasing costs. in an effort to avoid raising prices and to avoid adverts I have formed affiliations with businesses that align with my values and beliefs, and that are truly working to make greater differences to our world. I personally shop at these businesses and love to support them and share them with you because I know we can all benefit from what they offer.
What this also means is that when you shop from the links below I derive a small commission (no extra to you) from these businesses which allows me to expand Coastal Birthing and Beyond, bringing more content and Events to you as well as allowing me to continue doing what I love whilst working at home with my family (something I truly value and are incredibly grateful for).
In promoting these business I feel that I am also raising awareness surrounding healthier and more sustainable ways for you to shop and to ensure only safe products are brought into your home and lives.

Hypnobirthing was an amazing experience for both my partner Renee and I and our beautiful little baby boy Leonardo Phoenix. When we enrolled we were overcome with the love shared by the coordinator Kate whose experience in midwifery and Hypnobirthing made her such an excellent teacher. The classes were an amazing intimate experience in a Yoga studio where we were taught the theory behind it and then got to relax and practice hypnobirthing in such a calming environment. Overall I was very overcome with how great Hypnobirthing classes were for me as a father and a husband to be able to connect on such a deeper level with my wife and for us both to focus on the connection with our little Leo, and it resulted in an absolutely AMAZING experience at birth for us.
Hypnobirthing was a magical experience to have and I can’t imagine birthing any other way. The classes helped me prepare for a completely natural and stress free labour. It helped me to release all fears and actually enjoy the birthing of my baby. I felt empowered and knew that my body was performing the task it was meant to do. The information provided exceded all my expectations. I could not have asked for a better experience and it’s all thanks to Kate at Coastal Birthing and Beyond.
I am forever grateful that my husband and I had the opportunity to experience 1:1 hypnobirthing classes with Kate prior to the birth of our first baby. The classes gave me practical, authentic skills that helped me prepare for birth with excitement, and birth my baby with confidence. I think Kate’s extensive experience as a midwife in addition to her hypobirthing background is what makes her classes such a valuable experience. Just attending the classes themselves was a lovely experience because Kate creates such a beautiful, calming and supportive environment to teach in. I have extremely fond memories of the birthing experience my husband and I shared. He was was my rock and Kate’s guidance undoubtedly made my husband the amazing birthing partner that he was. I strongly recommend Kate’s hypnobirthing classes to all expecting parents, if you have any doubts cast them aside and just go for it, it can change your life! With my second baby due soon, I am looking forward to having a refresher course with Kate so that all of our hypnobirthing tools are fresh in our mind. Many thanks again Kate, and look forward to seeing you soon.
Kates knowledge as a midwife was a brilliant compliment to her Hypnobirthing training. The techniques she taught us enabled us a drug-free birth despite trying conditions. Highly recommended.
Hypnobirthing helped me to eliminate all my fears about birth and i found myself excited and eager for the birth of our baby. The classes were extremely helpful and i learnt so much! It really helped my partner know as well his role during labour and how he could support me best and on the day that made it such an amazing bonding experience for us! Highly recommended.”
Amazing very personal sharing of knowledge. Loved having private sessions, loved that kate is an experienced midwife as well as hypnobirthing practitioner. Fantastic, very highly recommended experience!
I was hesitant at first about these classes that my wife had booked, but by the end of the first class I was totally onboard, looked forward to each class as my relaxation for the week and loved practising at home. I felt prepared and excited for our birth and how i could best support my wife through this experience.
