An antenatal course to equip you with the tools, knowledge and confidence you need to have a joyful birth.
We’ve all heard those birth stories (thanks random woman in Sainsbury’s) but what we don’t hear enough is the impact a positive, empowering birth experience can have, on you, your partner and baby. The effect is ongoing and profound. Going into parenthood with the memories of a calm and happy birth gives you solid groundwork on which to start this amazing journey.
In childbirth, fear leads to stress and muscle tension, which causes pain. This course will help you release any misconceptions or fears you may have about birth and enable you to realise the power of your own body and baby. You will learn the natural physiology of birth and how, when it is supported and allowed to happen, birth works smoothly and easily.
I teach the Katherine Graves Hypnobirthing Course, known as KGHypnobirthing, or KGH. It is a Royal College of Midwives accredited programme and the original UK Hypnobirthing course. Visit www.kghypnobirthing.com to find out more.
We will think about how language affects a birthing woman, and how re-framing thoughts and questions can have an enormously positive impact. Birth partners will also be taught of their vital importance in the process and learn how best to support the labouring woman.
The birth of our children can have such an effect on our lives and our self-belief; it impacts our parenting and our relationships. My hope is that this course will make you look forward to the birth of your baby with excitement and joy and fill you with the confidence you need to have a wonderful birth.
