About Butterfly

20091025 top shuttlingsloe bump Thank you for finding me!  I'm Hannah Steventon and Butterfly Hypnobirthing is my practice.


My story

When I had my first child I thought it was the most fantastic, empowering experience of my whole life. I was already a Hypnotherapist, so I prepared for the birth using self-hypnosis.  Whilst my labour was induced, the birth itself seemed to have been a success.  At the time I thought it was the best birth I could have experienced, under the circumstances.  Looking back however, I still have regrets about the unnatural way my son entered the world.

When I became pregnant with my second child, my husband and I booked on to a Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing course. The birth of my second child was also fantastic and empowering, but the extra knowledge we gained made all the difference in terms of keeping medical intervention at bay. Not only that, but our awareness of the golden hour helped us ensure we had plenty of undisturbed time together as a family.  This has resulted in a very special bond between us all.

I was so surprised at the difference hypnobirthing made, I decided to train to become a teacher.  On the day I graduated - Butterfly Hypnobirthing was born.  Now I can offer you the chance to have the same opportunity that I had.  The opportunity for an empowering birth, a special bond and the best possible foundation for your baby - for the rest of its life.

My training

I am a Master Practitioner Hypnotherapist, having studied at the Hypnotherapy Centre of Excellence in Manchester.  The centre is approved and endorsed by ILM, which is part of the City & Guilds Group.  I am also a fully qualified Hypnobirthing teacher, using the Katharine Graves Method (KG Method).  The KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.  As well as these qualifications, I have also given birth twice.  The first time round - with synthetic oxytocin; gas and air and no idea what was going on.  The second time round - with a glass of water and my hypnobirthing techniques. 

Butterfly Hypnobirthing is about transformation.  Transform your birth.
