All About Me
Hello! I’m Kristina – birth coach & hypnobirthing teacher, wife, mother to two, Northampton born & bred 👠, first class Leeds university graduate 👩🏼🎓, lover of kitchen dance parties 💃🏼 & a cold beer.
I hypnobirthed my first baby during lockdown in 2020, started my business in 2021, went on to win Best New Business 2022 in Northamptonshire at the Northants Life Awards and in 2023 hypnobirthed my second baby boy.
I’ve had the pleasure of supporting over 100 families through pregnancy, postpartum & beyond.
I’m incredibly passionate about no nonsense birth education. What does that mean? Well, with me you get an evidence based, practical and positive approach to hypnobirthing. Listen, learn & use what works for you and birth your baby however the hell you want! I’m here to support you no matter what.
Birth, however it happens, is transformative. The most important life event, I’m here to get you prepped and guide you on your path to parenthood.
Hypnobirthing has truly changed my entire life. I fell in love with it in November 2019 during my first pregnancy. From the very first session I knew I had become part of something amazing (my husband did too)! I spent the rest of my pregnancy SO excited to give birth! I felt empowered, calm and confident & planned a home birth.
Unfortunately, I was then blindsided (to say the least!) when the first peak of the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Heavily pregnant, life got turned upside down. My home birth was cancelled and I had to come to terms that I may have to birth in hospital, alone. Facing the strictest restrictions an incredibly tough labour (and some last minute complications ending in an emergency c-section), I still managed to navigate the birth of my baby boy feeling powerful, strong and calm.
My experience lit a fire in my belly to make birth BETTER for as many people as possible. So this is how The Birth Base Ltd was created, so that I can help others achieve a base for a positive, beautiful birth, and beyond.
I believe that everyone deserves to feel empowered, strong and in control of their birthing experience. I'm really passionate about birth rights, and supporting YOU to confidently advocate for yourself.
I recently hypnobirthed my second baby boy into the world (May 2023). You can read my water birth VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean) story here if you’d like!

I am proud to be trained by The Birth Uprising, a fully inclusive hypnobirthing community.
I have attended The Queer Birth Clubs LGBT+ competency course, which has given me a much greater understanding of how moving through the maternity or perinatal services as an LGBT+ person can effect outcomes and experiences.
I have also completed additional training in Birth Rights, the 'Consent: Rights in Childbirth' by Emma Ashworth, Maddie McMahon & Verina Henchy.
I have also attended the Sunshine Doula's Culture Safety Awareness Workshop.
I have also attended a workshop on how to optimise a positive VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean) birth experience, so I am able to confidently support previous Caesarean birthers.
I will always strive to keep learning, do better and be an ally. I hope to create a safe and supportive space where everybody feels welcome.
