Hypnobirthing teacher and Babywearing Consultant
My name is Nuria Pozas, I’m a Birth and Postnatal Doula and Hypnobirthing Instructor based in Reading, Berkshire. Pregnancy and motherhood had a profound effect on my life – back in 2013, pregnant with my son I found about doulas and highly benefited from having this wonderful accompaniment. The love and support I received, together with my birth experience and posterior postnatal weeks helped me discover my true passion. I found myself willing to accompany and support other women in their motherhood journeys, with love, compassion and non judgmental support.
It was in 2014 that I decided to train with Michel Odent and Liliana Lammers as a Birth and Postnatal Doula (Paramana Doula training) and left my career as a Quality Engineer.
Through my work as a doula, I learnt how hypnobirthing can make a difference, so I trained as a hypnobirthing teacher in 2018. I chose to train with KGHypnobirthing as it’s a full in-depth birth preparation programme; it is much more than just hypnobirthing! It is a full antenatal education course that provides parents with a tool box to help them prepare for a positive birth.
As part of my continuous development, I am now training in Perinatal Mental Health with the European Institute of Perinatal Mental Health

“I was lucky enough to have Nuria as my doula for the birth of my first baby in June. I found the continuity of care I received from her before, during and even after the birth more than I could have expected. When I met Nuria I thought she had really gentle, calming qualities to her character which was exactly what I thought I would need in such a situation. My husband also benefited greatly from her support and guidance during the birth. He felt he was able to support me even better as a result of her suggestions. Nuria was able to be very impartial and did not push her views but shared her opinion if I asked. I think this is a quality you need in a doula and is very hard to come by in most people. I’m very grateful to Nuria for her support at such an important and special time for me and my new family.” – Sarah, Oxford
“We are delighted to have partnered with you in the preparation for having our child Isaac at the RBH (event though we planned for a home birth) and in particular for the support during labour and right through to the delivery of our baby. The psychological support made all the difference because of the negative hospital experience we had with having our first child. Thank you for all of the help and advice during pregnancy and the support and the preparation for the coming of the baby, and letting me know what was going on during the different stages I went through on the day. God bless.” – Susana, Reading
“Nuria accompanied my husband and me during my son’s birth, we also met her a few times before and after the birth. She was always very present in the moment, she asked us some very good questions which helped us both prepare ourselves for what lay ahead, as well as to process what turned out to be a very intense time in our lives. She also shared with us some very interesting and useful reading material. I found Nuria to be a very kind and genuinely loving person. She is a great listener, non judgemental, yet totally honest, and very down to earth.” – Tila, Oxford
“Nuria who accompanied me was very helpful, caring and professional. Even though I had a cesarean she helped me all the way through specially with my fear and later on with my emotions. She was also a great support after the birth and gave me useful advice regarding to breastfeeding and newborn baby.” – Vendy, Reading
