Teacher Training Course Syllabus
The KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training course covers the rationale of why hypnobirthing works so well, and how the body, mind and hormones work together. You will learn how to teach the breathing and visualisations that support a woman so well in labour, and the relaxations that she can use beforehand and also when she is giving birth to her baby.
The work we do to release fear is a very important part of hypnobirthing, which enables her to have a positive experience of pregnancy and birth.
We also equip you with the skills to teach a woman what alternatives are available to her in labour and the implications of the choices she makes, so that she can use the hypnobirthing she has learnt to best advantage in the system in which she finds herself.
The KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training Course consists of three modules:
1. Birthing Foundation
The Birthing Foundation online course is taught by Katharine Graves and two senior midwifes who are also experienced KG Hypnobirthing teachers.
Exemption from this module
If you are already a midwife or qualified birth professional you receive exemption from the Birthing Foundation module but, as we look at things a little differently, many people who are already qualified like to attend this module too. If you want to, you can do so at the repeaters’ rate which is only 10% of the normal fee.
- Time and place of birth
- The physiology of birth
- Normality and the less usual
- How to answer the questions you may be asked
- The birth process for mother and baby
This module includes an introduction to rebozo , the Mexican technique that can increase comfort in labour, and encourage a breech or back-to-back baby to change position. It is an extremely powerful method, and even experienced midwives have told us that it throws new light on their work.
2. Introduction to Hypnotherapy
This module is delivered online and streamed onto your computer.
Exemptions from this module
If you are already trained in hypnotherapy you receive exemption from the Introduction to Hypnotherapy module. If you have trained in NLP or are already a hypnotherapist, you can access this module at the repeaters’ rate which is only 10% of the normal fee.
This is one part of the course that is sometimes under-estimated. It is important for teachers to have an understanding of and practice in hypnotherapy before they start to teach couples hypnobirthing, otherwise they will just be repeating the material by rote. To have a brief explanation is quite different to having been shown the hypnotherapy techniques. We will provide you with the best possible training, and you are given an in-depth manual to refer to after the course.
- An introduction to hypnotherapy
- Achieving the maximum effect
- Laws of the mind
- Induction techniques

3. KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training
KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training Course is taught by an experienced specialist hypnobirthing teacher who is either a senior midwife or else has in-depth knowledge of midwifery.
This module is the core of the course and we go through the content of the course, exploring why it is constructed as it is, and explaining how to teach it.
On this module you are given a copy of The Hypnobirthing Book, the KG Hypnobirthing relaxation CD; Colour and Calmness; your teaching folder and a copy of the handouts you give to parents when you teach.
There is also a section on getting going as a new KG Hypnobirthing teacher, which includes information on marketing, insurance, etc.; This is enormously helpful when you start teaching.
