Are you thinking about becoming a hypnobirthing teacher?  Do you want to experience the satisfaction of supporting pregnant women with hypnobirthing?  Maybe you have experienced first-hand the power of hypnobirthing and the difference it made to you when you gave birth, or you have been inspired by stories from friends and want to get qualified to teach hypnobirthing.  Become involved in this hypnobirthing positive birth revolution and you can enable women to have the birth of their choice.  For pregnant women and their partners, finding out what they need to know is the first step to an empowering birth.  This is where hypnobirthing teachers can make a real difference in the lives of women, their partners and the baby’s calm arrival into the world.

Birthing Archie was the best moment of my life and I feel that this is something I must help to share with other women. I am beaming with excitement to help mothers and their birthing partners to feel positive and calm during their birth, to feel comfortable with any decisions that they make and to know that they can have a birth that is right for both them and their baby.

What does a hypnobirthing teacher do?

A KGHypnobirthing teacher guides parents-to-be, instructing them in hypnobirthing techniques and preparing them for different stages of pregnancy and birth by teaching the 12-hour KG Hypnobirthing course (either face-to-face or via Zoom) which includes:

  • Breathing to make birth more comfortable
  • Techniques and relaxation exercises
  • Physiology of birth and the mind/body connection
  • Practical antenatal information
  • Visualisations and birth preparation
  • How to navigate the medicalised maternity system in which women find themselves – very important
  • Scenarios, alternatives and questions to ask
  • Evidence and research

Who can be a hypnobirthing teacher?

You! Anyone can train to be a KGHypnobirthing teacher.  You do not need special qualifications to sign up.  If you have enthusiasm for helping women and their partners to navigate their choices around pregnancy and birth, you are ready to train.  You will become even more fascinated by the amazing process of pregnancy and birth.  Teachers come from a range of backgrounds.  Here are a few examples from our recent courses:

  • A midwife wanting a hypnobirthing qualification for continued professional development
  • A hypnotherapist deciding to specialise in hypnobirthing
  • A sales manager looking for a new direction
  • A yoga teacher adding a new specialism to their practice
  • A full-time mother seeking a fulfilling way to earn, to fit in with her commitments
  • A midwife wanting to use the skills to support the women in her care
  • A midwife wanting to set up KGH classes in her hospital
  • A doula wanting to add these skills to her practice
  • Anyone!

What qualifications do you need to be a hypnobirthing teacher?

There are no specific qualifications required, although your prior experience, knowledge and skills are very useful to hypnobirthing.  If you have worked in an office, this can help you in running your own business.  If you are a therapist, teacher or customer service executive, you will be accustomed to speaking to individuals and groups, which will give you a head start when beginning as a KGH teacher.  If you are a midwife, you know about birth already and can supplement it with additional skills.  If you are a hypnotherapist, you understand the impact of well-chosen words.

Whatever your background, you will bring your unique self and skills to becoming a hypnobirthing teacher and you can focus your teaching on supporting pregnant women and their partners in your area of speciality or in general.  Our KGH teachers are as varied as pregnant women, so there is always someone who is the right person to support you in different circumstances with a KGHypnobirthing network to help with any questions.

“You will find that teaching KGHypnobirthng is supremely satisfying and a massive privilege. It’s fun too. Birth is the most important event of a baby’s life, and giving birth is one of the most important events of a woman’s life. As a kgh teacher you have made a difference to a baby that could last a lifetime. You will love the course, and when you receive the first birth report from a woman you taught you will truly understand the positive difference you have made to someone’s life.”
