Dr Deepak Chopra wrote in his book 'Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives': “When a pregnant mother is anxious, stressed or in a fearful state, the stress hormones released into her bloodstream cross through the placenta to the baby. Hundreds of studies have confirmed that chemicals released by the pregnant mother’s body are transported into the womb and affect the unborn baby … When you’re calm and centred, your baby is able to grow peacefully.”
At Beautiful Birthing we are very passionate about having a stress free, beautiful pregnancy. We empower you to have a natural, safe, quick and painless birth of your beautiful baby so that they are birthed into their lives calmly and happily. The result of this for you is a beautiful pregnancy and birth and a relaxed postnatal experience where you can really enjoy being a fantastic mum and feeling great.
To facilitate this we use a combination of HypnoBirthing and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) that allows you to experience beauty and calmness whilst your baby is growing and birthing peacefully.
What is HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing empowers you to have a beautiful, calm and relaxing birth that your husband can be a core part of and your baby can experience the profound effects of a gentle birth for the rest of his/her life.
HypnoBirthing is well recognised and established with a focus on birthing naturally. As KG HypnoBirthing Practitioners, we and expertly trained, qualified and experienced to teach you the power of modern day psychology, visualisation, breathing techniques, labour and birth relaxation techniques to reduce fear, anxiety, stress and fatigue that result in pain during labour and birth. KG HypnoBirthing has received accreditation from the Royal College of Midwives in the UK; the highest accolade that vouches for the incredible standard, professionalism and quality of the course.
Hypnobirthing can't promise the perfect birth however we provide you with the tools so that you can have an informed, empowered labour and birth that is perfect for you and your baby given your circumstances.
What are the benefits of HypnoBirthing?
In our workshops and one-to-one session, you will learn powerful natural birthing techniques that are just not available in most other antenatal classes and have fantastic benefits:
- calm and relaxed mums during pregnancy
- research has shown that on average labour and births are shorter
- significantly fewer surgical births
- a high number of natural births with no medicalisation
- significant reduction in the need for an episiotomy during birth
- a high success rate in turning breech and transverse babies so a c-section is not required (University of Vermont study
revealed an 81% success rate)
- highly energised mums post birth
- dad's feel they are a core part of the experience and played an active role in the labour and birth
AND THERE IS MORE.........
Babies born with mums using HypnoBirthing tend to be:
- feed better
- sleep better
- scientific research has also proved that babies have a higher Apgar Score (a measure taken, usually in the first 5 minutes of birth that indicates how well your baby is doing).
If your baby is breech or transverse towards the end of your pregnancy, we can use hypnosis to aid in turning your baby to the optimal birthing position. Research has found that hypnosis is the most effective way of turning a baby and has an 81% success rate.
What mums say:
"My husband and I attended one of your courses, and later went on to experience the most amazing and calm birth of our daughter. It was everything we had hoped for: peaceful, quiet, a really wonderful, amazing but also humbling experience. So first a long overdue 'thankyou' for your valuable training and for being the strong, and only, positive inspiration I needed that childbirth needn't be a frightening and painful experience. With grateful thanks."
I wanted to thank you in helping to transform an experience I was approaching with great trepidation into something beautiful and empowering.
You may remember that this is our second baby and I tore badly the first time. The medical advice was to have a c-section to avoid potentially long term consequences of tearing again.
It was only when we came to your course that it helped us to identify the real reason things had gone wrong the first time. In my first birth, we were progressing fine until we went to the hospital and then I suddenly stopped progressing. With the regular inspections telling us that things had slowed down, our stress increased and eventually we took up the advice to break the waters. This lead to rapid progress but I wasn’t able to push my baby out. Doctors came in and used forceps, and then I had to go into theatre for repair. The consequences were long-lasting. My son was for a short while traumatised by the experience, but eventually recovered from that after a few weeks. For me, when I became pregnant again I was terrified of going to hospital, of the loss of control, of doctors and of tearing, of progress slowing down. And the medical advice seemed clear - we should have a c-section.
Then we came to your course and for the first time things made sense. Maybe my progress had slowed because I was not in my home environment. And with each inspection telling me that I had stopped dilating my stress increased, and this compounded the problem. The midwife, who was lovely, suggested breaking my waters which sounded like the right thing to do, but of course my body was not ready - which lead to forceps being needed and damage to me.
Following your course, we challenged the medical advice - and when asked directly, the doctors conceded that there was in fact no medical basis for suggesting I should tear again. They were concerned, though about the possibility of slow progress. As were we, but we came to the opposite conclusion on how to tackle it. We decided, with the HypnoBirthing principles to guide us, that we would have a birth that was as stress-free as possible - which meant staying positive in the lead up, and avoiding any interventions whatsoever except where there was evidence to suggest it was necessary for my or my baby’s safety.
We did not have to wait long. We attended your course only two weeks before I gave birth. We practised visualisations every day, and peppered our walls with affirmations and positive beliefs.
After two days of continuous practice surges, my labour started in earnest at 2am on Sunday 15th November. I stayed calm and relaxed. At 9am, the midwives changed. I had not let out a peep and so they suggested my first inspection. I agreed, and they were astonished that I was almost fully dilated already. The new midwives were just as fantastic at minimal intervention - only the occasional check on the baby’s heart. My husband was my only support, and the only support I needed. And then, at 11.00am, I let out my first sound as I felt the urge to push. Half an hour later, my waters broke. And at 12.47pm, Layla Florence entered the world, and without any tearing at all. An hour and a half later, my husband and I were drinking tea astonished at how quickly normality was resuming itself.
The whole experience has been so positive and so amazing. And we cannot overstate the effect your course had in guiding us to the right approach to deal with our concerns, rather than choosing an unnecessary c-section, or making the same mistakes again.
Thank you again - the course really made all of the difference in the end, much more than we had expected when we signed up.

Chris and I wanted to say thank you for taking us on the journey toward a birth experience we can share with a smile.
We had our baby girl 6 days ago ... an unplanned homebirth because I hadn't realised how far I'd progressed because I was coping so well. So calm an experience it had been, that our baby girl was actually born with her waterbag still intact and a 10/10 APGAR rating! I got to cuddle her as soon as she was born.
She is our second child, after our son was born by emergency c-section. It was my birth experience with him which made me try hypnobirthing, as I remained completely traumatized from the numerous interventions and ultimate surgery. I actually cried to learn I was pregnant again, solely thinking about the disappointment I felt last time and how scared I was that I couldn't do any better.
The number of medical visits I had during this pregnancy exacerbated my guilt, weakness, and all those negative residual feelings and fears I carried. It also didn't help much that due to already having a toddler, and opposite work schedules, it was difficult for my husband and I to find time to do the relaxations together.
But we persevered with 1am relaxations together and lots and lots of replaying 'statements for an empowering birth'. In spite of all those hang-ups I felt burdened with after the experience with my son, amazingly I remained sooo confident during our daughter's birth. I took a nice hour long nap during labour, and carried on with my day even managing to play football with my son less than 3 hours before his sister was born!
I had this amazing confidence I never expected to have... and then.. I did it!!: a drug free VBAC!
I gave my baby what I know to be the best start possible in life.
Thank you for helping me have my healing birth.
What dads say:
Just a quick message to thank you warmly for the hypnobirthing seminar we had with you. It was really informative, balanced, and in my view had the right mix of sciences, experience, common sense and wisdom. So thank you very much for that. We left the seminar inspired and happy - and with lots to think about!"
My wife and I have three children, one hospital born and two subsequent births using the Hypno-Birthing technique. To say that we have experienced the extremes of child birth would be to put it mildly. I have seen my wife deliver with both physical and emotional trauma and then have also seen her deliver with a calmness and serenity that defied my previous held belief.
What midwives say:
"Over the last few years as a midwife I have had a number of encounters with patients who have had truly beautiful, gentle and calm births. The common factor in these births seems to be that they have attended your hypnobirthing workshop. Keep up the good work, I will be recommending your service to all my clients!"
First time mothers come to us after taking hypnobirthing sessions. I have been amazed at how well these women have laboured. I’ve been called on several occasions and have thought the woman ‘wasn’t doing much’ and she has been 7 or 8 centimetres dilated. The training also enables them to remain calm and relaxed.
