What you will learn

istock_course details  I booked on a course with my husband and never looked back.

I had no training for the birth of my first child.  Like most mums-to-be I just assumed I would have no control over the birth and that I could leave everything to the midwives at my nearest hospital.  I was offered a date to be artificially induced and just accepted it without doing my research into what that really meant.  As a result, my first experience of birth was chaotic and traumatic.  When I became pregnant with my second child, I wanted a better experience.  So I decided to take responsibility for my own birth.  I researched different ways of preparing for birth (NCT classes / Pregnancy Yoga / A Hospital Antenatal Course etc) before discovering KG Hypnobirthing.  I booked on a course with my husband and never looked back.  The amount of knowledge it gave us, enabled us to take control of how we wanted our birth to be.  We soon found out that knowledge really is power.

Some couples can learn all these things from the book and CD.  Some couples prefer to learn all these things by doing the course.  You probably won't know which category you fall into until you go into labour.  I'm not sure which category you will fall into, but I would love to teach you everything I know about hypnobirthing.  I am always happy to help, so please give me a call if you want to know more:
