HYPNOBIRTHING

 

WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING?

Hypnobirthing is based on using self hypnosis techniques as a form of preparation for pregnancy, labour and birth. It is a simple practice that is used to aid relaxation and release fear, tension and anxieties surrounding birth. Our course will reconnect you with the gift of the intuitive mind. 

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and forgotten the gift
— Albert Einstein

WHY CHOOSE US?

Our unique programme gives you the skills and confidence to be part of the decision-making process and work together with midwives and obstetricians to achieve the birth that is right for you. In turn, couples that have done hypnobirthing have experienced a more comfortable  birth and felt empowered and happy with their birth experience, whatever route it takes.

 


WHY DO THE COURSE? CAN'T I JUST BUY A BOOK AND MP3 AND DO IT MYSELF?

Buying The Hypnobirthing Book and MP3 is a great place to start particularly if your not 100% sure hypnobirthing is for you. The great thing about the course is that you get that 1:1 practice time with midwives Vicky and Emily, have more time to discuss any particular worries around birth and learn skills that will empower you to achieve the right birth for you. The course is also great for birth partners (who may be slightly sceptical of hypnobirthing). It teaches them about the realities of birth, their role in birth, how they can support their partner and how they can practice the scripts to. The course is a chance for you to come together and learn how to work as a team through your birth and be part of the decision making process.


 

WHEN SHOULD WE DO THE COURSE?

You can start the course at any stage of pregnancy. An ideal time to start would be from 25 weeks so that it gives you and your birth partner plenty of time to practice.

TESTIMONIALS

 

We wanted to try hypnobirthing (with very basic knowledge of what it actually entailed!) but I had read about Katherine Graves Hypnobirthing and saw that Vicky had trained with her and Emily with Lorraine Flaherty and both being midwives, we were assured that we would be in safe knowledgeable hands. This is our first pregnancy and we are planning a home birth. We had a private hypnobirthing course at home, which worked really well for my husband and I with our work commitments and made the whole experience much more relaxing and intimate. I was really surprised with the level of personalisation of the course itself and feel this is a really important aspect of hypnobirthing as this addressed our respective fears/expectations of birth.

Vicky and Emily were incredibly sensitive and patient with us, understanding our very basic level of knowledge and giving us the support, information and tools we needed to continue our hypnobirthing practice throughout the rest of pregnancy. While my husband was very sceptical to start with, having completed the course and fully understanding the mind/body connection, it is now something that we do together almost daily, enabling my husband to feel involved in the pregnancy (and hopefully birth!) and it also helped to calm us after a long day at work. Just having half an hour together to forget about everything else going on has been really beneficial. I feel it has really helped me relax and sleep well throughout pregnancy and I look forward to, rather than dread, the birth.

We both feel confident in having a tool to help us no matter how labour ends up as it is a skill we can take anywhere. It was valuable to do this relatively early on (I was 28 weeks pregnant), which has given us the chance to practice regularly, often resulting in me drifting into a deep slumber within minutes.

We couldn’t recommend hypnobirthing with Vicky and Emily enough, with their wealth of knowledge, support and level of personalisation, it really felt special.

MEET THE MIDWIVES:

Vicky is a qualified KGhypnobirthing teacher who trained with Katherine Graves, founder of KGhypnobirthing and leading hypnobirthing provider in the UK. Emily trained with Lorraine Flaherty through Expectancy. This has taught Emily to personalise hypnosis for each couple. Both teacher courses are Royal Collage of Midwives accredited. 

This unique hypnobirthing course allows you to become more informed about pregnancy labour and birth. The private sessions provide safe environment to discuss your feelings openly and to learn the skills to combat fears. This practice then allows your body to work effectively and encourages it to take a natural course. 

You can find good information about babies and birth in many places, but Hypnobirthing is the only thing I know that actually makes a difference to your experience of giving birth. Hypnobirthing cannot promise the perfect birth. Nothing can, and to do so would be ridiculous and not true. However my experience is that KGhypnobirthing always makes a difference. It is a privilege to be a Hypnobirthing teacher and to be invited into your life at such a special time in order to make it even better.
