Benefits to you and your baby

Keep Calm and Hypnobirth

Would you like more confidence about giving birth? Would you like to empower yourself with tools that can make you feel more comfortable and calm during birth? Would you like a gentler birth for you and your baby so that you can have a speedier postnatal recovery? 


Then you are in the right place. This course is for all pregnant women however they choose to birth. It offers genuine birth preparation so you can stay empowered in the powerful act of birthing.


I will explain the logic of why this method works, and guide you in powerful techniques to access deep states of calm in body and mind. I will also support your birth partner in their role and show them how to protect the birth environment as well as how to work in partnership with your caregivers. 


We will  work towards an empowered birth experience, one you will want to remember, and for the best start to life with your baby. 


I have trained in two methods of hypnobirthing, have birthed both of my babies using these methods and have supported many families  using hypnobirthing as birth education and birthing.


Whether you are a first time mum, a second time mum looking for genuine birth preparation after a traumatic first birth, or wanting to build confidence for vaginal delivery after a caesarean, if you are expecting twins or even planning a caesarean, hypnobirthing is for you.


My wish is for you and your baby to have an empowered birth experience and the best start to life together.

My wish is for you and your baby to have an empowered birth experience and the best start of life together. I teach KGHypnobirthing which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and is a complete and in-depth antenatal course. 

I will show you how the female body is perfectly rigged to birth and that birthing is a normal and natural function of the body just like the many other reflexes we have. 

By building confidence in the knowledge of this helps nurture a positive expectation of birth so that you can release any fears and trust your body, your baby and your instincts.

I will give you information and knowledge of the systems that surround birth and within the NHS that  help or hinder the birth experience. We will look at the choices you may be faced with in your birthing journey and the implications of various routes so that you can be empowered in the decision making process and in doing whats best for you and your baby alongside a confident birth partner.


Investment in birth preparation is worth it.

Questions

Testimonials

Benefits to you and your baby

Can I book a Private Session?

Yes. The advantage of this is I can come to your home and we can also figure out times and days that are most suited to you and your birth partner. 

I have already used Hypnobirthing for a previous birth. Do you offer refresher courses?

Yes refresher courses are approx 4.5 hours long depending on your individual needs.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration. We experience it everyday when we are waking up and as we fall asleep. Its just like staring into a fire or daydreaming. There is no magic to it.  In hypnobirthing we use this this state of mind to communicate positive suggestions in order to stay relaxed, yet fully in control.

Is reading the Hypnobirthing Book and listening to the Relaxation Sufficient?

Sometimes people ask if doing this is sufficient without coming to a course. The answer is, ‘I don’t know’.  For a few mothers it is but for many it isn’t (though it will always make a difference).  Unfortunately you don’t know if this is the case for you until after your baby is born.

"Really helpful"


Hypnobirthing is logical and profound "Not too hippy, which was good"
