When looking into learning about hypnobirthing for my own birth, I found The Calm Birth School and instantly connected with it. It's positive, empowering and very importantly, it's powerful for any type of birth. Couldn't love it more! Am so happy to be part of The Calm Birth School family. And if you're considering doing it online, I am based in Hong Kong and was able to do the course via Zoom. I felt completed connected and supported throughout, and still do one year later! Oh and you'll love Liz. Just do it!” 

Lindsay Parfitt, Calm Birth Hong Kong 

There is nothing like a pandemic to make you re-evaluate where you are in life.

We have all found ourselves in the strangest and saddest of circumstances. We all have more time on our hands yet strangely that feels like no time at all. The days have slowed down, yet the weeks are flying by. We are spending more time with our families and loving it but equally craving time when we can be alone. Amidst all this is the realisation that life before lockdown was not working for you and you know that you could do more, be more and live the life you were meant to.

Come and join us to teach Hypnobirthing- The Calm Birth School way!

You can become a successful Hypnobirthing Instructor and have a balance between career and family whilst feeling fulfilled and purposeful.

Get started on one of our courses in 2021;

January- March (live workshop 20th & 21st March)

February-April (live workshop 17th & 18th April)

March-May (live workshop 15th & 16th May)

April-June (live workshop 19th & 20th June)

September-November (13th & 14th November)

All you need to succeed is the right support.  

ARE YOU.......

  • Wanting more flexibility in your life once lockdown is over?
  • Craving your old life on one hand and dreading returning to normal on the next?
  • Aching to feel proud of what you do and make a difference in the world?
  • Juggling the 9-5 treadmill or shift pattern, stressed out caring for babies, working , dealing with COVID!! There’s got to be something that YOU can get from this UNPRECEDENTED time that will change the course of your life, right?
  • Furloughed, with time on your hands and realising that you feel uninspired at work and just not enjoying what you do? Do you have this nagging feeling that there is something else out there for you?
  • Looking to earn a great income empowering women to have positive birth experiences?
  • Wanting to feel more fulfilled and use your unique qualities, talents and personality to inspire others?
  • Desperate to love what you do every day and never get bored of learning or “working”?

I can help you create an amazing new career that you LOVE (just like these amazing women above and many more I've trained and supported over the last few years) 

With our training you'll get access to everything you need to confidently teach hypnobirthing, and grow your new business. There are too many women out there who don’t believe in themselves or in their body’s. Too many women are experiencing births which make them feel out of control, undignified and frightened. You know that birth shouldn’t be like that. You know that birth doesn’t have to be like that.  

It is time to change lives and start helping women to create the most positive birth experience possible for their own unique situation

“ I chose to train as an instructor with the calm birth school because the fresh, straight talking, down to earth approach really appealed to me. So much info is packed into the 2.5 months of online learning and the face to face aspect really pulled it all together. Liz and Hannah are awesome - absolute fountains of knowledge and enthusiasm and they gave me the confidence to put myself out there.

Why training to teach Hypnobirthing NOW is so important

  • Women are more fearful about birth now more than EVER. A global pandemic has meant that many women across the world are facing tough choices and feeling alone. From birth centers closing, to birth companions being restricted and home births not being offered in some areas- women need all the support and birth prep that they can get.
  • There were 625,651 births in the UK in 2018. If we break that down into regions, in the West Midlands for example, there were 67,282 births. In Birmingham there were 15,916 births…you see where I am going here? There are a lot of women who need YOUR support to create the most positive birth experience possible. Have a google to find the number of women in your local area who could possibly need your support.
  • According to the most recent research, about 30,000 women a year, experience birth trauma in the UK. The Calm Birth School are passionate about providing quality education, tools, techniques and support to help to lower these astonishing numbers and also to help women who have experienced trauma to have a subsequent more positive experience.
  • 1 in 7 women will develop Postnatal Depression with 50% of those developing symptoms during pregnancy (see Pandas for more information). Having certain expectations about how birth should be, feel or happen can create feelings of failure or despair in women if those expectations aren’t met which is thought to put women at a higher risk of post natal depression. The Calm Birth School Instructors provide a down to earth, relatable, accessible programme which can help women to navigate their birth experiences- even if they don’t go to plan.
  • Celebrities and Royalty (from Fearne Cotton to the Duchess of Cambridge) have used hypnobirthing to prepare for the birth of their babies. This means that more and more women are interested in hypnobirthing and will be looking for a teacher in their local area to support them!  
  • Even thought we are currently locked down, my instructors are able to attract clients and teach classes online in a very similar format to teaching face to face!
  • We are primed for baby boom post lockdown!

 The Calm Birth School is “The Gateway to a positive birth”. We are teaching women and their partners to navigate their birth experiences in the most positive way possible with accessible, relatable hypnobirthing.

We are going to be working closely together so let me introduce myself..


I am Liz Stanford.

I am a hypnobirthing instructor of over 8 years, hypnobirthing trainer, clinical hypnotherapist, a Mindset Academy Coach, soon to be NLP Practitioner, NLP Coach, Time Line Practitioner, Hypnosis practitioner and owner of The Calm Birth School.  

I became pregnant with my first child at the age of 27 and was so terrified of what lay ahead of me for the next 9 months (and beyond) that I began reading all I could about pregnancy and birth. I empowered myself with knowledge and felt more in control. I had a fear that the pain of childbirth would be so great that I would not cope and would need all the drugs going. The idea of this loss of control spurred me on to scour the Internet and eventually come across Hypnobirthing. I signed up immediately to the classes some 20 miles away and immersed myself in the philosophy and technique. 

My beautiful daughter was born in August 2007 and although I did require intervention, I didn’t need any drugs and felt as in control as I could. I had the most positive experience possible for my situation. 

In December 2009 I gave birth to my gorgeous son with whom I had the most wonderful calm, drug free, intervention free birth I had desired! As with my daughter the support from my birthing companion (my husband) along with all the preparation I had done was the foundation for creating an experience I felt positive and proud about. I was home from hospital the same day and felt fantastic.  

I went onto have my 3rd child (a lovely boy) in February 2015. This birth was another wonderful experience (which certainly had some challenges!) and really encouraged me to pursue my dream even further. My births really showed me my true potential and I am passionate about helping other women to witness their strength, power, courage and determination. What an amazing way to begin Motherhood! Feeling like you can not only take on the challenges of parenthood but also take on the world with a new belief about who you really are! 

These days I have over 90 instructors passing on the secret that birth can be a positive empowering experience and I want YOU to come and join us in doing this very important work.  

Are you a The Calm Birth School Instructor? 

TCBS teachers have these values in common;

  • We help women build up their confidence in themselves, their choices and their bodies
  • We help couples to create a positive birth experience no matter what the circumstances are
  •  We support our clients in their decisions, respect their wishes and their choices. 
  • We are supporters of women; we invite our clients into our tribe. We build bonds, friendships and connection with all whom we work with. 
  • We are knowledgeable, gifted teachers who inspire couples to become empowered through education, support, skills, positive mindsets and tools for life! We believe in the power of the mind and we know that all women have it within them to create positive birth experiences
  • We help women and their birth partners to ask for the support they need from their caregivers.
  • We remind women that their instincts are powerful and that they are the experts in their own bodies and babies. 
  • If this sounds like you or who you want to become…then you could be a perfect fit for our team!  

Let me empower you to create your own flexible business around your family whilst empowering, inspiring and educating women to have a positive birth experience.  

Join Us To Teach Hypnobirthing- The Calm Birth School way.

“I am LOVING the course so far! It’s so nice to have something non kid-related to think about, and I’ve really enjoyed the content of the hypnosis module. I feel a lot more confident about the key principles already. So much of hypnobirthing is useful for life in general! I also really like the format of the course. The ‘lives’ were a bit scary at first, but I think they’re such good practice for teaching and being able to see others’ and learn from their questions and responses too is just brilliant. I didn’t expect such a sense of community in the group, so that’s been such a nice bonus!”

Success Stories


Anna Owen from Rock Your Birth 

Anna was in my first EVER training group. Based Worcestershire, Anna had no teaching or business experience and now 2 years later she is one of my busiest instructors delivering group courses, private courses, intensive sessions and has extended her training to cover Mindful Breastfeeding and Baby Massage. I was very proud this year to gift her with a ticket to a women’s empowerment event to recognise her achievements and to help her to develop even further. Anna is such a passionate teacher and makes a real difference and impact on those that she teaches.  

Lindsay Parfitt from Calm Birth Hong Kong 

Lindsay is making waves in Hong Kong! Lindsay completed all of her hypnobirthing training online and despite having a new born baby was was soon filling hypnobirthing taster sessions, teaching 1:1 and spreading the word about positive, accessible birth.

She has and incredible spirit and bring calm and empowerment to everyone she comes into contact with!  


Jade Gordon- Sona Mum  

Not all my instructors train with me in the beginning. Lovely Jade found TCBS after training with a few other methods and established herself in her local area of Aberdeenshire. Jade didn’t feel that the method she was teaching was totally aligned to her beliefs around birth and she wasn’t getting the support she needed to grow her business.

She has blended her own wonderful style of teaching with some inspiration from TCBS to create something very special for clients. 3 years on from joining us and Jade has expanded her team to include two other instructors!

Jade has done amazingly and I am so proud of her!  

Let's get really honest and let me answer your questions...

You might have mentioned to friends or family that you are thinking about training to teach hypnobirthing and maybe they have thought that it sounds like a bit of a crazy or an "out there" idea or maybe they have never heard of hypnobirthing at all! They are probably telling you not to do anything right now!

I can tell you it does raise a few eyebrows when you introduce yourself but its benefits are becoming more and more recognised with the NHS and across the world! Even the Duchess of Cambridge as confirmed that she used hypnobirthing to birth all 3 of her children and right now, we are seeing more women turning to hypnobirthing classes as they prepare for the birth of their babies during the global pandemic.

It is not a fad. It is an incredibly powerful way to help women to create the most positive and amazing birth experience that they can…isn’t that just the best way to start motherhood?

As more and more people hear of hypnobirthing and recognise how it can make a real difference to pregnancy, birth and beyond- teachers are more and more in demand.  

How long does the course take?  

The online course will take around 10-12 weeks to complete (depending on when you get started and how quickly you work, it could take less!). You can set aside a couple of hours per week to work on it. All the online classes are broken down into “mothersized chunks” so you won’t get overwhelmed. You have lifetime access to the course materials so you can always revisit it whenever you need to.

When is the 2 day workshop?

The live and online workshop are as follows;

January- March (live workshop 20th & 21st March)

February-April (live workshop 17th & 18th April)

March-May (live workshop 15th & 16th May)

April-June (live workshop 19th & 20th June)

September-November (13th & 14th November)

You must be available to attend a workshop either live or online.

Will I miss out studying online?  

Absolutely not. Everything is covered and more. 100% of my students when asked said my courses deliver on value and exceeded their expectations. The great thing is that we have a face to face weekend as an option so you get to connect with the course facilitators and your fellow trainees in person!

What other costs are involved in becoming an instructor?

The training is £1200 (unless you are a midwife, doula or hypnotherapist in which case it would be £950). This can be broken down into installments if you prefer but it does incur a small bank charge. 

Every year to ensure that you maintain all your benefits and keep teaching The Calm Birth School method of hypnobirthing you are asked to contribute £75 as a membership fee.

As an instructor you will need to provide your clients with our accompanying materials which are The Calm Birth Method book by Suzy Ashworth and 6 MP3’s. You can purchase these books in bundles (each book comes with 6 MP3’s). A 5 pack bundle costs around £65 including postage (£13 per client). You would be responsible for giving the book to your client and TCBS H/O will organise MP3 access for your client. You can work these costs into what your charge rates and as a self-employed individual these would be considered as expenses for your business.

Why do I need to book a call? Can’t I just pay now?

At TCBS we are all about quality over quantity. I want to get to know EVERYONE who is joining the family and I want to ensure that my current teachers feel appreciated and respected. This is why I offer an exclusive 5 mile radius to each instructor and it is why we have an application process.

How does the 5-mile rule work?

The 5-mile rule runs from an instructors house. I cannot place a new instructor within 5 miles of an existing instructors home address. The 5 mile rule does not restrict where you teach but it is a commitment not to over populate an area with instructors. If an instructor is not teaching consistently (5 clients over 3 months as a minimum) I am able to place someone within their 5 miles area.

How do I pay?

You can pay by bank transfer or by paypal. Once your application has been successful you will be given full payment details!  

So are you ready to change lives?
