KG Hypnobirthing Course – For The Best Birth For You And Your Baby


Many mums-to-be are now referred to hypnobirthing by midwives because they have seen its successful results.

This Hypnobirthing course teaches you how-to work with your body during childbirth as a result eliminating fear and tension. Hypnobirthing gives you the knowledge and the tools to have the best natural child birth for you. Most of all, releasing fear and learning to trust your body, your instinct, and your baby.  In order to do this, you need information, knowledge and practice.

In addition a hypnobirthing father is knowledgeable and as a result able to support you during birth.  He is a huge asset in the birthing room, and many mums say, ‘I couldn’t have done it without him.’  And you have practiced which brings you closer together, and he knows he has played an important part in how his baby enters the world.  This can deepen your relationship as a couple, and his relationship with your child.

Hypnobirthing changed my attitude towards the birth of my child dramatically. An event that I was secretly dreading turned into something that I was really looking forward to..”

What are the Benefits of Hypnobirthing?

You are likely to experience a more comfortable and sometimes pain free birth.

Your baby will arrive to a calm and relaxed environment, alert and ready to bond with you as nature intended.

Length of labour is often much shorter with Hypnobirthing births.

Less drugs and medical intervention are used in Hypnobirthing births allowing your baby to develop naturally and easily after they arrive.

Mums often bounce back quicker after a Hypnobirthing birth as the physical impact of giving birth is reduced.

Your birth partner will learn how to support you and as a result have a central and active role in the birth. Consequently a truly shared and loving experience.

The benefits to you are obvious, but the long term benefits this can be to your baby cannot be over-estimated.

When should I start?

It's best to attend this course nearer your birth, 2 months before birth seems like a popular choice.

How many couples are there in the group?

The size of the groups vary, it’s lovely to do Hypnobirthing in a group because you can meet other expectant couples, exchange ideas, and learn from their questions. The groups are kept small enough to be personal, and large enough to be friendly.

This course is also available online with Katharine Graves for those of you who prefer the comfort of your own home. Visit KG Hypnobirthing Online Course.

What’s included in the course?

The Hypnobirthing Book by Katharine Graves

The KG Hypnobirthing course relaxation CD, Colour & Calmness

Also a folder of handouts to guide your practice at home

I had a beautiful birth, such a wonderful memory and I know the majority of that was due to your teaching and support. Just one paracetamol and a relatively short birth, which was amazing. I used your tips and ensured I followed my bodies lead and as a result managed to relax into each surge. And the home practice mp3's worked wonders in helping me get into my own birth zone.
