Hi,

My name is Kirsty. I live in Aberdeen with my fiancé, Liam and our son, Joseph. Giving birth was the best day of my life and that was thanks to hypnobirthing!

I was terrified when I found out I was pregnant, but completing a face to face hypnobirthing course really turned that around. From there on I was able to enjoy and appreciate my pregnancy, along with the birth of my baby.

My birth didn't go exactly to plan, but the hypnobirthing techniques I learned kept me calm throughout and it was still such a positive experience. I still use the techniques to help deal with day to day stress and find they are hugely beneficial in helping me keep calm amongst the chaos of parenting.

After Josephs birth, I decided I wanted to do my hypnobirthing teacher training to show other women that they can have positive and empowering births! 

I am fortunate enough to have friends who are as passionate about birth as I am and also have done their KG Hypnobirthing training. Together we have created 'Empower: Parenting Consultants' dedicated to supporting and empowering parents.

Hi, I’m Katy. Welcome to BORN READY BABY & congratulations on your pregnancy! Who am I? I’m a hypnobirthing mumma, Communications Professional (so I feel really passionately about the power of words and their ability to make us feel all sorts of things) and a fully qualified KGHypnobirthing teacher. 

I feel so passionately that becoming a parent is beyond wonderful but it can also be completely overwhelming. Anything we can do to make sure that it gets off to the best start possible, the better. So often we’re bombarded with birth “horror stories” (we’ve all heard them) but who is telling us the empowering ones, the stories that make us excited to meet our babies? No women should feel like she has to spend her pregnancy in fear and no couple should feel traumatised by their birth experience. 

Relaxed, friendly & fun, I offer a fresh, straight up, modern approach to hypnobirthing. Life is busy & your time is precious - let's make this both useful & enjoyable!

My name is Abi, I am a mum of two boys and live in the north side of Glasgow. 

Im a qualified social worker, and am passionate about supporting and empowering others. I have been involved in the social care sector for over a decade. 

My family and friends are the most important this to me, but I also love cooking, baking, music and sport.

I was originally recommended hypnobirthing by a friend who is a midwife. I was initially skeptical of it and imagined it being a very alternative "tree hugging" approach. However, I trusted by friend and her opinion and went on the course. After having two very positive births of my own, I know that hypnobirthing works, and can transform your birthing experience. 

Im really excited and honored to be able to support other couples to be able to experience positive births.

I am Janine, or Neen and I have one son Olaf who is my Valentine's baby and coming up to being 3 years old. 

During my pregnancy I used hypnobirthing techniques with great success, and felt informed enough so that when I was speaking to my consultants about gestational diabetes, I was able to ask the right questions to get the best possible birth on the day. 

I have never felt as strong as the day I gave birth and I want all mothers to feel that.   I've always mentored people to help them feel more confident and I now work with mothers throughout all stages of their pregnancy and beyond to help them always feel as empowered as they do on the day they give birth. 

I am finding ways to help parents in this critical stage to help them manage the emotional impact of things like post-natal depression as they step forward into their new role with their new family.

I love seeing how expectant parents can bond, how dads can feel useful in the delivery process, and how mothers can tap into that inner instinct that's just there.  This technique works.

Congratulations on your pregancy! My name is Rachel Boyland and as well as being a qualified hypnobirthing teacher, I am also a registered midwife. My aim is to provide you and your birth companion with all the tools you need to have an easier, more calm and positive birth experience.

The effects of hypnobirthing are wonderful and will empower you to relax and trust your body and your baby .

Hi, I'm Andrea - mum to 2 boys, experienced Midwife, KGHypnobirthing Teacher, and midwifery educator.  I believe women and families should have access to accurate, evidence-based information to enable you to make informed choices during pregnancy, child birth and parenthood.  I used hypnobirthing techniques for the births of both my sons - one born in hospital and the other at home and as a midwife I have supported many women during pregnancy, labour and birth, who have benefitted from Hypnobirthing.  I understand the myriad choices and often conflicting information women and families face and can support you to navigate through these choices and teach you KGHypnobirthing techniques to help you release any doubts or fears and achieve a positive, confident birth.

Signed.

I have been a midwife for 5 years and first came into contact with hypnobirthing 2 years ago. I have worked in 2 different health boards. One of which is a standalone birthing unit. This unit provided care to women who had no complications and were keen to have as natural a birth as they could achieve. Therefore many women adopted that school of hypnobirthing as a method to allow a natural birth. I watched with wonder as many women came through our doors in so much control and with so much knowledge on pregnancy and birth. I watched gentle, calm, uncomplicated birth unfold with little to no aid from myself. It was inspirational even to be a part of; hence the reason I became a hypnobirthing teacher. I want all women to have this experience and be able to feel empowered for their pregnancy and most importantly birth.

My name is Clare and I am mother to two wonderful boys, Ruairidh and Oliver. I live in rural Aberdeenshire with my husband and two dogs. Having spent three years telling everyone about hypnobirthing, I decided that I would train to become a KGHypnobirth Teacher as it's something that I am so incredibly passionate about. I discovered hypnobirthing whilst pregnant with my eldest. I was unsure of what to expect from the experience of labour and birth, having attended hypnobirthing classes myself I can honestly say that all the fears and uncertainty I had completely disappeared.
