KGH Hypnobirthing

KGH Hypnobirthing is an effective, evidence based technique that helps you to give birth calmly, gently & in greater comfort.

This in-depth antenatal training programme teaches women & their birthing partners about how the female body works during pregnancy & labour, providing useful information, relaxation techniques & breathing exercises. The course is designed to enable you to release any fears & build confidence & self-trust enabling you to look forward to your baby’s birth.

In order to meet your individual needs I offer a range of different programmes to suit you. I work with individual couples in your own home to deliver a tailored service, ensuring you are fully prepared your birth & beyond.


Full KGH programme

(approx. 12hrs delivered over x2 days or x4 sessions)

A complete antenatal & hypnobirthing course. This comprehensive course covers all aspects of birth & will support you to make informed choices about your care. You & your partner will learn beneficial relaxation strategies & hypnobirthing techniques.

This course is ideal for you if you are looking for a detailed & complete antenatal course.


Shortened course

(approx. 6hrs delivered over x1 day or 2 to 3 sessions)

This shortened course covers the main aspects of birth, but concentrates more on the hypnobirthing elements. You may choose to do this course, if you have attended a different antenatal course or may be shorter on time, or just want to focus on the hypnobirthing strategies.

Extra sessions are always available if your circumstances change & you want additional information or support.

Below is a link to a review made by one of the (now) dad’s who attended this course earlier this year.


C-Section Preparation

(approx. 4hrs delivered over x1 or x2 sessions)

If you are having an elective C-Section, then this course is perfect for you. Hypnobirthing techniques are just as useful in caesarean deliveries in helping you to remain calm, relaxed & optimising your birthing experiences. I used these with my two C-sections & had two wonderful births.

This tailored course covers everything you need to know to feel prepared & positive about your C-section.

Thank you so much Heather, your guidance on the section - the caesarean was amazing.



(approx. 2hrs delivered over x1 or x2 sessions)

Sometimes Ladies can be apprehensive about pregnancy & birth because of phobias such as fear of needles, blood, hospitals or even birth. In addition to the antenatal programmes offered we can work together to address any fears / phobias enabling you to look forward to your baby’s birth.


Special circumstances

(approx. 4hrs delivered over x1 or x2 sessions)

Some ladies that come to me have sadly experienced previous pregnancy loss & becoming pregnant again may understandably raise complex emotions. In order to support parents who have experienced this, I offer a sensitively tailored program that suits you.

At our first visit you will have the opportunity to talk with me about any specific worries or concerns & we will plan your programme together.

The programme will be taken at your own pace & will include strategies & techniques to enable you to prepare positively for the birth of your baby.

We loved the fact that all types of birth were explained & discussed. Very well tailored to a more complex pregnancy after previous loss.
