KG Hypnobirthing is a technique that women (or couples) can use to help pregnant women to release any fear they have associated with childbirth.  Deep relaxation, releasing fear and tension can allow you to have an instinctive, calmer and more comfortable birth, whether a normal delivery or a caesarean birth.

Techniques are easy to learn and include using visualisation whilst performing breathing during relaxation exercises. By practicing the positive techniques women are given the tools which will allow them to reduce their stress and fatigue, supporting the release of oxytocin and helping their body to give birth as nature intended.

For couples, hypnobirthing is a wonderful way of bringing them closer together as they prepare for and enjoy the arrival of their baby. Birth partners also enjoy having a more clearly defined role during the labour and birth.

Hypnobirthing antenatal courses generally run over two Sundays each month; though we are also happy to run private courses in your home or at our training centre.

Optional extras available include the Hypnobirthing Handbook by Katharine Graves and CDs to play at home
