I’m Ruth Lyons, experienced KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner and the proud creator of Inspired Birth. I’m extremely passionate about hypnobirthing as I absolutely know it works. I want every woman to feel empowered for life through a positive birth experience.
I live with my fabulous husband and three wonderful, energetic and highly spirited young children, two boys aged 6 and 3 and a baby girl aged 11 months. We used hypnobirthing for all three births and all were wonderful, different and positive birth experiences. We’ve had two hospital births, two water births and a home birth.
My career has been very varied. After completing a maths degree at Leeds University, I trained and worked as a secondary maths teacher for a few years which I loved. For the last 10 years, I’ve been a successful business development manager in the fast-paced corporate world. In between these roles I set up a bespoke tailoring company. Although all very different roles first and foremost I am passionate about women understanding birth, removing the fear and being able to make informed decisions so that they can birth calmly and safely in the best environment for them, whether that be in the hospital or at home.
Hypnobirthing teaches the physiology of birth, breathing and relaxation techniques alongside self-hypnosis to be used during labour. This knowledge and understanding help to remove any fear and allow for a calm and safe birth.

Hypnobirthing myths dispelled
MYTH: Hypnobirthing promises a pain-free birth
I wish I could guarantee you a pain-free birth experience, but unfortunately, I can’t! Why? Pain is subjective and what one lady calls painful is another lady’s breeze. However, it is likely that your feeling of discomfort will be greatly reduced.
MYTH: Hypnobirthing is ‘alternative’
The name can create the impression that it is a bit ‘out there’ but only if you’re not familiar with it. Hypnobirthing is centuries old and the principles of hypnobirthing are all based on the biology of the human body.
MYTH: You will be hypnotised
It’s common initially for you to fear that you are going to be out of control using hypnobirthing as crazy images spring to mind: stage shows with people running around revealing their darkest secret. This couldn’t be further from what self-hypnosis or hypnobirthing is about.
