What is hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing allows you to work with your body in the way that nature perfectly designed during birth. We have all either experienced a traumatic birth, or seen or heard about it, and images of birth (as it is portrayed in the media) make a lot of women feel fearful and anxious. When this fear is replaced with relaxation and calm, birth becomes more comfortable, and daresay, enjoyable! Hypnobirthing helps you to trust that birth is a natural, wonderfully designed process, which can truly be one of the most empowering experiences of your life.

KGHypnobirthing is not airy fairy nonsense as some may believe. It is the original UK hypnobirthing course which is designed especially for mothers in the UK. It provides a complete antenatal course that puts a focus on empowering expectant parents to have the very best birth experience that they can.
