KG Hypnobirthing is a complete in-depth antenatal training programme designed to release fear and build confidence during pregnancy and birth. After training and working for several years as a midwife in South London, I recently moved up North, where I continue to work as both midwife and hypnobirthing teacher in Sheffield and its surrounding areas. In my courses, I combine meditation and hypnobirthing techniques with a wealth of evidence-based information to help you welcome your birth with calm and confidence.
After qualifying as a midwife at King's College London, I went straight to work for a caseload team in South London. This brilliant job - based at St Thomas' hospital - gave me the opportunity to work with women from their booking appointment, through the birth, to the early days of parenthood. I have now assisted at well over 100 births, at home and in hospital settings. It is always a privilege to support mothers at the time of birth, and I have seen, time and time again, the great strength and love that women bring to their own unique birth.
I was convinced of the benefits of hypnobirthing long before becoming a midwife. My sister, after a challenging first birth, used hypnobirthing to prepare for her second. The result was a overwhelmingly positive natural birth experience for my sister, which, in turn, transformed my understanding of what birth could be like. I have now witnessed many times the positive effects of hypnobirthing, and strongly believe in its benefits, however a birth unfolds.
Having studied languages to degree level at the University of Cambridge, I speak French and German fluently, and would encourage any mothers to get in touch if they would like classes, or more general support, in these languages.
I recently moved up to Sheffield, where I continue to work as an NHS midwife and qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher. I practice meditation myself, and have experienced first-hand its benefits for my physical and mental health. On my days off, I head out to the Peak in pursuit of beautiful landscapes and rocks - my other great loves, and the reason for my move up North!
KG (Katherine Graves) Hypnobirthing is the original UK Hypnobirthing course which is designed especially for mothers in the UK. The course is constantly evolving to keep up-to-date with the latest evidence and research, and is now taught internationally. A KG Hypnobirthing Course not only equips you with hypnobirthing information, but uniquely gives you the knowledge to understand your options and the implications of the choices you make in the context of giving birth in the UK.
I offer bespoke hypnobirthing courses in the comfort and privacy of your own home. The full course is nine hours of teaching, usually divided into three sessions, and arranged for a mutually convenient time. The cost of the course is £275 - for this price, you will also receive the KG hypnobirthing book written by Katherine Graves, with introduction by Michel Odent, a folder containing course information and practice materials, and CD or MP3 file of The Essential Relaxation for a Calm Birth: Colour and Calmness (Katherine Graves). Please see my website for more details.
