Birthing Archie was the best moment of my life and I feel that this is something I must help to share with other women. I am beaming with excitement to help mothers and their birthing partners to feel positive and calm during their birth, to feel comfortable with any decisions that they make and to know that they can have a birth that is right for both them and their baby.
What does a hypnobirthing teacher do?
A KGHypnobirthing teacher guides parents-to-be, instructing them in hypnobirthing techniques and preparing them for different stages of pregnancy and birth by running a 12-hour (usually across four sessions) hypnobirthing course which includes:
- Hypnotherapy techniques and relaxation exercises
- Physiology of birth and the mind/body connection
- Practical antenatal information
- Visualisations and birth preparation
- Scenarios, alternatives and questions to ask
- Evidence and research
Who can be a hypnobirthing teacher?
Anyone can train to be a KGHypnobirthing teacher. You do not need special qualifications to sign up. If you have enthusiasm for helping women and their partners to navigate their choices around pregnancy and birth, you are ready to train. Hypnobirthing teachers come from a range of backgrounds. Here are a few examples from our recent courses in Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, London, Manchester and York:
- A midwife wanting a hypnobirthing qualification for continued professional development
- A hypnotherapist deciding to specialise in hypnobirthing
- A sales manager looking for a new direction
- A yoga teacher adding a new specialism to their practice
- A full-time mother seeking a fulfilling way to earn, to fit in with her commitments
What qualifications do you need to be a hypnobirthing teacher?
There are no specific qualifications required, although your prior experience, knowledge and skills are very useful to hypnobirthing. If you have worked in an office, this can help you in running your own business. If you are a therapist, teacher or customer service executive, you will be accustomed to speaking to individuals and groups, which will give you a head start when beginning as a KGH teacher. If you are a midwife, you know about birth already and can supplement it with additional skills. If you are a hypnotherapist, you understand the impact of well-chosen words.
Whatever your background, you will bring your unique self and skills to becoming a hypnobirthing teacher and you can focus your teaching on supporting pregnant women and their partners in your area of speciality or in general. Our KGH teachers are as varied as pregnant women, so there is always someone who is the right person to support you in different circumstances with a KGHypnobirthing network to help with any questions.
