KG Hypnobirthing Teacher

Hi, I’m Gill. I’ve been a Nurse and Health Visitor for over 10 years however most recently trained as a Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing Teacher. This is something I have always had a passion for since undertaking a Hypnobirthing Course while pregnant with my first baby. I enjoyed every minute of my labour, finding the whole experience empowering and beautiful. I went on to have two more children each time igniting my passion for Hypnobirthing. However as a busy mum it was never the right time to train as a teacher until most recently when I decided to fulfil my dream!

I’m often asked, what is Hypnobirthing? The simplest answer is an in depth antenatal education suitable for every type of birth, supported by evidence based information while providing parents-to-be logical and practical tools to stay calm, in control and reduce fear.

Most people hear Hypnobirthing and straight away think ‘will I be hypnotised?’ the answer is no!

Hypnobirthing includes strategies and tools to use in pregnancy, labour and birth to feel empowered and allow your body to function as nature intended. These include self hypnosis, deep relaxation and different types of breathing techniques along with visualisations.

You are also taught the logic and background of Hypnobirthing, how to decipher information from professionals and challenge this if needed to enable you to make an informed choice for you and your baby.

Hypnobirthing is not a promise to a pain free birth – rather the tools to stay calm and in control, reducing fear to enable your body to work to it's full potential. The KGHypnobirthing course is renowned in the UK as the home of Hypnobirthing, created by Katharine Graves and accredited by The Royal College of Midwifes. I am honoured to be able to teach this course and share by passion of Hypnobirthing.

Recently KGHypnobirthing has been in the media, having been used by celebrities such as Russell Brand and his wife Laura along with Ella Woodward (Deliciously Ella) and husband Matthew. Joe Wicks aka The Body Coach and partner Rosie Jones as well as Giovanna and Tom Fletcher are advocates of Hypnobirthing talking publicly of their positive experiences. Hypnobirthing is becoming more accepted with many midwifes being trained to support parents-to-be through their labours however there is still work to be done to help spread the message. My aim is for every parent to look forward to birth and have a positive experience.

I currently run group sessions as well as 1:1 private sessions in the comfort of your own home. Group sessions are taught over three separate days each lasting 3-4 hours. Included in the price you will receive KGHypnobirthing resources from each session, a KGHypnobirthing book, a relaxation MP3, access to our private Facebook group, a complimentary goody bag with exciting gifts to use during pregnancy and labour as well as support by email or phone up to your baby’s birth. An additional home visit is included to reflect on your birth experience.

Please get in touch if you would like any more information, I would love to hear from you.
