"My name is Fiona Maynard and I trained in KG Hypnobirthing with Katharine Graves at the HypnoBirthing Centre in London. Over many years I have built a reputation as a skilled Hypnobirthing practitioner. My greatest joy is empowering mothers and fathers to reach their goals by helping them conquer fear and develop confidence. Many of my couples have found that KG Hypnobirthing relaxation techniques are so powerful that they can become life skills long after the birthing experience!

My name is Giselle, I am a practising Midwife (BMid) and a qualified KG Hypnobirthing practitioner (DipHb(KG)). I was introduced to hypnobirthing as a student midwife and my interest has developed throughout my midwifery career. Despite what the name suggests, hypnobirthing is not stage hypnosis or hippy nonsense! I have found that the KG hypnobirthing technique encourages evidence based information, healthy scepticism and taking responsibility and control over your own birth.

I have found that women who practice hypnobirthing in pregnancy tend to have calmer, quicker and more comfortable experiences, whether the method of birth is a caesarean, instrumental or a normal delivery.

I provide these antenatal courses in the South Gloucestershire area, surrounding Wotton-Under-Edge.

Hi, I'm Lara. I am a mum of two and a community midwife. My passion for hypnobirthing started during my midwifery training when I completed a dissertation on 'fear of childbirth' and the effects that hypnobirthing can have in instilling confidence in women and their ability to birth. I have been a midwife for over 6 years and I am passionate about empowering women and their family. Prior to midwifery, I was a spa therpist, specialising in holistical therapies. During this time I learnt the importance of breathing techniques to aid relaxation and the importance that this can have on the human body both physically and mentally. Outside of my worklife, I am a wife and mum to two wonderful children who are my world.

I'm a registered midwife with a passion for holistic education for women and their families. As a midwife I understand the importance of educating women and their partners about pregnancy, labour and birth. I enjoy empowering couples to make informed decisions about their care, explaining the risks, benefits and alternatives in order to support them in whatever choices they make. This passion for educating and empowering women inspired me to train as a KGHpnobirthing teacher.

 I support women to give birth wherever, whenever and whatever way that might be. I hope to use my skills and knowledge as a registered midwife to promote the KGHypnobirthing philosophy to help women let go of any fear, assumptions and preconceptions of birth and through practice, build their confidence so that they can simply let their body do what it’s designed to do and give birth calmly, confidently and positively.

Hypnobirthing Gloucestershire

All our teachers have trained and been assessed in the KG Hypnobirthing Teacher Training comprehensive course. As well as being tested on the training they have received, we look at how they perform using these skills, the amount of experience they have subsequently built up, and, finally, the level of professionalism they demonstrate.   These factors are essential to promoting good practice within the field of natural birthing techniques and hypnobirthing particularly.     We also ask our teachers to sign up to our code of best practice to demonstrate professionalism and ethical behaviour at all times.

Hypnobirthing, which helps create a more stress-free and therefore more relaxed birth for mother and baby, is a growing area within the field of natural birthing methods, as understanding increases with regard to its effectiveness and organisations such as ourselves advocate its use.
