Yes, It Really Works!
KG Hypnobirthing is a philosophy and technique that teaches a simple, physiological approach to birth. Designed to release fear and build confidence, it enables our bodies to produce the hormones we need in labour so that our birth muscles can work in harmony and birth can progress optimally.
I teach the course in an interactive way and welcome and encourage your participation, questions and scepticism! Scepticism is natural, we should question things and reserve judgement until something makes sense to us. Scepticism towards positive births exists because of common misconceptions and assumptions that unfortunately play a part in perpetuating the cycle of fear. I unpick these and offer you that ‘lightbulb’ moment. Once misconceptions have been readdressed parents to be are very relieved and fear and uncertainty is replaced with confidence and excitement. The course sets a solid foundation to achieve an empowered positive birth to remember forever.
Taking the course information and knowledge on board and practising the breathing, visualisation and relaxation techniques fully prepare you for labour. You don't need to be planning a natural drug free birth in a bell tent with fairy lights, whale music and just the cat for company for these to be highly effective! They work for ALL labours and in all environments. They make a big difference to your perception of birth, as well as improve the overall experience for you, your baby and your birth partner when the time comes. I also teach and demonstrate the importance of the positive use of language throughout pregnancy and provide affirmations to encourage and help you with this.
It is recognised that KGH reduces intervention rates and the use of analgesia while increasing natural births. It helps you have the best possible physical, mental, emotional and spiritual start to motherhood. The benefits to your baby are equally as valuable.
