FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS

WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING AND HOW DO I KNOW IT’S RIGHT FOR ME?

I teach the KG Hypnobirthing method, developed by Katherine Graves, which uses relaxation, massage and knowledge of the birthing process, as well as involvement of the birth partner, to empower the birthing mother to feel in control. We’ve all wondered about the ‘what-ifs’ and the great thing about KG Hypnobirthing is that we’ll show you how to address them, make the decisions which are right for you and how to get into a peaceful birth zone when the special day arrives. The outcomes from this course speak for themselves, hypnobirthing mothers are less likely to require pain relief drugs and medical interventions because they understand and believe in themselves.
If you’re not sure if it’s for you, drop me a line with your questions or ask for a taster session.

AM I GOING TO BE HYPNOTISED?

If you’re expecting swinging pendulums then no, this isn’t what you’re going to get! Hypnobirthing is a form of relaxation which helps you feel calm and at peace during your birth.

Everyone’s experience of this will be different, some may feel totally relaxed immediately and be able to fall asleep listening to a script, others may stay awake throughout but feel the onset of calm and others may take longer to find their own sense of peace and relaxation.

WHEN SHOULD I DO THE COURSE?

KG Hypnobirthing is recommended between 14 and 36 weeks pregnant, as it should allow you plenty of time to practice and hone your skills before baby is ready to come. If you’re reading this at 38 weeks, don’t worry, drop me a line and we can discuss how hypnobirthing could still help you.

CAN MY BIRTH PARTNER JOIN TOO?

Absolutely! Your birth partner is an important part of your birth and you’ve probably chosen them because they’re a very important part of your life and are someone you love and trust. Hypnobirthing won’t just teach you, but it will also teach them how to support you in the lead up to and during the birth.

I DON’T HAVE A BIRTH PARTNER, CAN I STILL DO IT?

Definitely! I provide relaxation tracks which you can listen to at home during your practice and in the classes we’ll work together so you are part of everything we learn so that come your special day, you know what works for you and can ask your midwife to support you with techniques you know work for you.

I HAVE A HEALTH CONDITION, CAN I DO HYPNOBIRTHING?

As with any health condition, you should speak to your medical specialists before taking on something new during your pregnancy. Have a chat with your midwife or obstetrician, let them know you’re interested in doing a relaxation course to help with the birth and see what they say. If you’re good to go, drop me a line and we can discuss the best approach for you.
