About Me

Hi! my name is Kat and I am the owner of Surfing Births. I am a qualified Midwife, School Nurse and a mum to two amazing little boys, aged 5 and 7 months. Surfing Births came after a yearning to return to supporting pregnant women and their families following a break from my midwifery career, after the birth of my second son. 

I have worked in all areas of care during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period and have a passion in the belief that a woman’s pregnancy experience can have a considerable impact on their long term health and wellbeing.

I decided to set up Surfing Births as a way of providing pregnancy and birth support services to pregnant women and their partners in the Sheffield, Barnsley and Kirklees areas.

I offer a variety of classes for pregnant women and birth partners including Real Birth Workshops and Hypnobirthing programmes and would love to hear from you!

Real Birth Workshops

Real Birth Workshops are a Full Day Birth Preparation workshop for you and your partner. 

They are a great way to feel more confident and knowledgeable about your birth for the best birth experience!


Full hypnobirthing programme or 3 hr workshop available to equip you with tools and resources for a calm and positive birth!



"A brilliantly relaxed and informative day. Kat made both me and my husband feel much more relaxed about the birthing process and the explanations about HOW and WHY the body works the way it does were brilliant. The day felt really involved for both myself and my husband with tips on birthing positions and massage for us to go home and practice. Would recommend to anyone whether a first time parent or for subsequent little ones."
