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.
Why KG Hypnobirthing?
Information about my courses
"My advice to anyone that has fears or worries or just wants to feel more in control of pregnancy and labour is give hypnobirthing a go, i can’t recommend it enough."
"I must admit, I didn’t really know what to expect even though I’d read a bit about it. Giselle explained everything really well and put us at ease, although we both had a few ‘giggle’ moments as it was all new and different to begin with. We talked about how scared I was and I didn’t feel silly or uncomfy, Giselle understood and made me feel like everything I was going through was normal."
"I definitely didn’t think I’d be dancing whilst in labour!"
"Thank you for the course We approached the delivery of our daughter feeling relaxed, confident and well prepared as a result of it. Listening to the hypnobirthing scripts during labour, having practiced these and the relaxation techniques at home, made the hospital feel much less clinical and we focussed on the breathing techniques to birth our baby calmly and naturally. Thank you again for your support and guidance in our hypnobirth practice."
Private sessions will include the 10 hour KG hypnobirthing course, conducted in the privacy of your own home on the dates and times that best suit your schedule. The total cost for this is £250.
