A KG Hypnobirthing course will give you and your partner the knowledge and the tools to have a truly positive birth experience, as well as give your baby the best possible start in life.
During the course, you will learn to rebuild trust and confidence in your own body’s ability to birth, by understanding that ‘birth’ is not a medical emergency, but a very natural process. A woman who is free from fear and feels safe and unobserved will produce oxytocin and endorphins freely, paving the way for a gentle, calm and empowering birth. I will show you how to release that fear, through breathing techniques, deep relaxation, visualisations as well as the power of the mind and positive affirmations.
I will also weave in my extensive experience having attended over a hundred births as a birth doula. I will provide you with considerable practical information based on this experience. I regularly support births at West Mid, Kingston, Chelsea and Westminster and Queen Charlottes, so I can help you to prepare for birth at your specific hospital. I can also show your partner how to practically support you in labour – there are plenty of amazing techniques and tips, well honed through years of experience! By the end of the course you will both be fully confident and relaxed as you approach the birth of your baby. You will receive the Hypnobirthing book by Katherine Graves, a folder of handouts to guide your practice at home and a relaxation MP3 download, as well as my ongoing support if needed.
