KG Hypnobirthing Stories

One of the delights of teaching Hypnobirthing is receiving so many lovely birth stories.  

We hope you enjoy reading these stories, from both Mothers, Fathers, and Midwives.  Do feel free to send in your own stories - even if you don't want them on the web site we'd still love to hear from you.

I felt like a goddess!

I wanted to get in touch and share my birth story.

We did the KG Hypnobirthing Online programme and made sure to get our practice in from about 30 weeks. We loved the course. My husband and I both felt more informed, prepared and calm for the journey ahead.

I believed in my body. In my ability to birth. But nothing could have prepared me for the way our boy entered the world.

On 4th May 2022 I woke up at around 3.30am with a niggling pain in my right hip. I didn't think much of it, went to the loo and took some paracetamol. I tried to go back to sleep but by 4.20am realised I was having regular surges, around 6 minutes apart. I thought it best to wake my husband. We got dressed and gave the hospital a call...they advised that as it was my first baby I was unlikely to be quick and to ride it out at home a bit longer as I sounded like I was coping well.

Within 30 minutes, my surges got more and more intense. I just knew our boy was not going to wait. I trusted my instinct and we went straight to the hospital. The journey was...interesting. My surges were intense but I remembered my breathing. My husband kept me calm with affirmations and had on a tshirt of my 'calm colour'.

We arrived at the hospital and walking from the car to the exam room I had 3 intense surges. They examined me and I was 10cm dilated. I felt the pressure and knew I needed to bare down.

The midwives were amazing. They went over my birthplan and provided me with a birthing stool to use whilst the pool was filled. I managed to get in and birth my boy in the pool within 10 minutes. He was born in his waters, which I'm told is very lucky, just 45 minutes after we arrived at the hospital. Labour was 3 hours 20 minutes from waking up to him being born.

We have an amazing son, 7lb 14oz. Our first baby. I just can't believe how much I love him.

My husband and the midwives kept commenting on how calm I was, right until the end. I tore a tiny bit (skin, no muscle) and didn't require any stitches.

Thank you for helping me to have the most empowering experience of my life. I felt like a goddess. 

Hope you don't mind me sharing/getting in touch. I just wanted to thank you.

The photos I have selected are from the home birth of my second daughter in May this year. It was a totally different experience from my first hospital birth and makes me smile with happiness every time I think back to it. I have just completed my degree and training to become a midwife, so I have been present in a number of hypnobirthing ...

I was so in tune with my body and baby

3rd baby, 2nd home hypnobirthing waterbirth. This time my baby was born all by himself- from my declining all interventions- natural and medical, to my breathing baby down in part helped by the fetal expulsion reflex. I was so in tune with my body and baby I could feel all his twists and turns as he descended through the birth canal and was ...

Thank you KGH

On a boiling hot summers day in July 2018, I went into labour at home. I had been induced at Queen Charlotte’s hospital that morning but being low risk I was thankfully allowed to return home. The KGH course that my husband and I had completed two months previously had prepared us both for what was to come. I laboured comfortably using my ball, a...

Victoria, Kitty and Chris

From the day we commenced our hypnobirthing course my attitude towards the birth of my child changed dramatically. An event that I was secretly dreading turned into something that I was really looking forward to. My partner was extremely supportive and towards the end of our pregnancy we were practicing at least one of the relaxation exercises ...

You gave us hope and helped our dream come true

Dear Katherine, I am not sure you will remember us, as we first met a long time ago. It wasn't long after Samuel, our first son's birth & I met you at Hazelbury Manor near Bradford-on-Avon, seeking a way to make it possible to contemplate going on in time to have the full crew of a family of four children which we had dreamt of. You gave us ...
