Prima Baby & Pregnancy Magazine

It is fabulous that the word is spreading about the importance of not fixating on your due date.  Prima Baby Magazine have an article in their latest edition which quotes Katharine about the keeping your dates to yourself:

Unnecessary Stress

Katharine Graves, founder of KG Hypnobirthing and author of The Hypnobirthing Book agrees that fixating on due dates causes unnecessary stress for mums-to-be.

“All babies arrive on their due dates,” she says. “It’s simply that they don’t tell you what that date is until they get here!” She adds, “ There’s no such thing as a ‘late’ baby, only women who have different length pregnancies.”

Katharine advices telling friends and family a different due date in order to avoid the inevitable barrage of enquiries.

We also recommend the following articles about pregnancy lengths:
