Natalie Qureshi is a Natal Hypnotherapy practitioner who teaches hypnobirthing and relaxation techniques to pregnant women, helping them manage pain and reduce anxieties during pregnancy and birth. Natalie discovered Natal Hypnotherapy while preparing for the birth of her daughter in 2010 and subsequently trained as a practitioner.
Courses are run for women and their birth partners and can be taken as a group workshop or private sessions. Hypnobirthing is increasingly welcomed within the NHS, with many midwives and doctors recognising the benefits.
Natalie also offers doula support to women during birth which offers practical, physical and emotional preparation during pregnancy and labour.
Natalie previously worked in economic consultancy for a number of years. She has strong links with the undergraduate midwifery degree at Manchester University and lectures to student midwives at Manchester and Salford universities as well as acting as a lay assessor for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. She is currently co-chair of the Maternity Listening and Action Group (MLAG) for the Pennine Acute Trust, which contributes to improving maternity services in North Manchester, Bury and Oldham hospitals.
