In 2016, following the publication of the ‘Better Birth Report’, KGHypnobirthing was chosen to take part in the National Transformation Programme (NTP), and delivered training to 11 hospitals and providers in the Cheshire and Merseyside area. KGHypnobirthing was selected as our service includes the core principles of the NTP: choice, continuity of care, quality service and improved experience for women and babies. As hypnobirthing continues to grow in demand, the NHS is recognising the need to provide this service.

KGH has trained birth professionals in many hospitals, including some of the most  prestigious teaching hospitals:  UCLH, Kings College Hospital, The Royal London, The Portman, St Michael’s Bristol, St Mary’s Manchester, Liverpool Women’s, Birmingham Women’s and many others throughout the UK.

Katharine Graves, founder of KG Hypnobirthing has developed and adapted the course over the years in response to the latest research, client feedback and the needs of mothers and babies. Her outstanding knowledge and skills have resulted in this comprehensive, in-depth antenatal course being accepted as the premier UK course for professionals and parents alike.

Today Katharine concentrates her time training Medical Professionals and Teachers, and writing and speaking about KG Hypnobirthing and Natural Childbirth, She also still teaches the hypnobirthing she loves to couples.

KG Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal training that is simple, logical and profound.

As well as being the leading method in the UK for hospitals and midwives, the course covers active birth and mindfulness.  It’s all there for you.  This is the most comprehensive and in-depth training available.

KG Hypnobirthing also provides a complete support system to help you establish hypnobirthing in your hospital.

Professional Development

Midwives report that it renews the vision that brought them into the profession and gives them greater job satisfaction.

Hospitals that we have trained as hypnobirthing hospitals have reported that, although very naturally some members of staff were sceptical at the beginning, within a year everyone is on board because they have seen the difference that hypnobirthing makes.

This does wonders for staff morale, saves midwifery time, and creates a positive change of ethos in the department.

Improved Birth Outcomes

For Mothers hypnobirthing helps them enjoy a more comfortable birth, and for many this has meant a shorter and more straightforward labour. For some it has actually been a pain free birth. Even when labour takes an unexpected turn, the hypnobirthing training a mother receives prior to birth will help her, and we often receive very positive reports even after an induced labour. There are many benefits for the mother even if she is having a planned caesarean. If a mother experiences birth as calm, gentle and drug-free, then so does her baby. A responsive and healthy baby is ready to bond with its mother and the medical and developmental advantages of this are significant. Good feeding and sleeping patterns often go hand in hand with hypnobirthing.

Financial Savings

The unit benefits from the financial savings due to shorter labours with less interventions.

From the figures from the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust:

A 5% reduction in caesareans brings a considerable saving.

A 10% reduction makes a very substantial saving.

Fewer complications mean shorter hospital stays and less midwifery time. This releases funds for other projects in the department.

What Does the KG Hypnobirthing Course Cover?

Hypnotherapy for Hypnobirthing

Web-based Training

Hypnotherapy for Hypnobirthing is an online module that is streamed onto your computer. This module provides loads of practical information essential to you throughout your KG Hypnobirthing career. Presented as web based learning it will give you all the background knowledge you need to gain maximum benefit from the KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training Module.


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 spent time actually being shown the hypnotherapy techniques. We provide you with the best possible training, and you are provided with an in-depth manual to refer to after the course.

  1. An introduction to hypnotherapy
  2. Achieving the maximum effect
  3. Laws of the mind
  4. Induction techniques
  5. Deep confidence
KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training

Course Trainer

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.

  1. What is KG Hypnobirthing?
  2. The mind/body continuum
  3. How to achieve the best possible birth
  4. How hypnobirthing is best used for birth in hospital and at home
  5. The implications of the choices you make to achieve the birth you want
  6. Setting up your practice with our support

There is an open book assessment which will provide you with a final opportunity to go through all the course material when you have finished to make sure you have everything you need to know at your fingertips.

KG Hypnobirthing Diploma

Once you have completed the assessment you will receive your diploma.

“Midwives who do this course often say, “It brought back the vision that brought me into the profession in the first place.” This is so important when disillusioned midwives are leaving the profession in droves. These special rates for birth professionals are offered to help midwives set up KG Hypnobirthing classes in their own hospital, and also to make a difference to their practice which will have a positive effect throughout the unit.”
