KG Hypnobirthing is a complete in-depth antenatal training programme designed to release fear and build confidence during pregnancy and birth.

NEW - KGH Resource Sheets

Although we all hope to have a straightforward pregnancy and birth, sometimes you will need to make unexpected choices about certain topics that you may not be prepared for or are unsure where to find impartial information from.

KGH have put together several resource sheets on various topics, including induction of labour and breech babies, to point you towards well-informed articles, websites and books. These sources will give you the information and confidence to have the knowledge to make well informed choices for you and your baby. These will complement your KGH course but can also be used as a stand-alone resource that you will find very helpful.

Pregnancy Charity Giveaway

We are excited to share details of our 2020 Christmas Charity Giveaway!  

Kicks Count Charity 

This Christmas we are highlighting the Kicks Count charity.  The team at Kicks Count do an amazing job of highlighting the importance of monitoring your baby's movements.  Movements are a key sign of a baby's wellbeing and Kicks Count is the UK’s leading awareness campaign. Through education and awareness, they empower mums-to-be with knowledge about movements and give them the confidence to call their Maternity Unit if something doesn’t feel quite right. While Covid-19 continues to bring restrictions, encouraging mums to monitor their baby's movements, trust their instincts and contact their maternity unit if things just don't feel right, is more important than ever.

Vaginal Examination Coercion

The Jeremy Vine show on Radio Two yesterday highlighted the problem of women being pressurised into agreeing to a vaginal examination before their partners are allowed to be with them in hospital when they give birth.  This is not acceptable and we need to look very seriously at how our maternity services are functioning at the moment.  We know that birth workers are fully committed and caring, but is the system working effectively for women?  

You can listen to the show here.  The maternity discussion starts at 35.30 onwards.

Below are some extracts from an email I received this week from one of the mums I taught recently. It really highlights the awful situation woman are being put under right now:

Sarah-Jane Mee Welcomes Baby Girl!

I was delighted to hear that Sky News presenter, Sarah-Jane Mee and her partner Ben Richardson have welcomed a beautiful baby girl! I had the privilege of teaching KGHypnobirthing to Sarah-Jane and Ben.

We had planned to do this in their home, but when the Covid-19 pandemic meant she had to self-isolate at home, we caught up virtually via Zoom to teach her KGHypnobirthing! They remained wonderfully calm throughout her pregnancy and has been planning a homebirth with an independent midwife.

I’m Not Allowed to Have My Partner With Me

At KGHypnobirthing we have been taking so many calls from worried pregnant women who are having to attend their antenatal visits without their partner and whose partner will only be allowed into the hospital for a short time when they give birth.  We have tools to relieve stress and build confidence, but that’s not the same as having the person you love by your side at this very special time.

I have come up with a solution.  Not as good as actually having your partner there, but an excellent and creative substitute – virtual antenatal appointments!

International Day of the Midwife 2020

This year, more than any other year, we want to acknowledge the amazing work of our midwives on International Day of the Midwife 2020.

In every KGHypnobirthing parents’ course, I stress to parents how fortunate they are to live in a country that has a strong, autonomous midwifery profession.  Because of our midwives we as a country are in the forefront of normality.

How to have a positive KGH birth during covid-19

With the majority of hospitals cancelling their homebirth services, it is no wonder pregnant women are concerned about what to do next. When we teach KGHypnobirthing, we discuss all places of birth but, with the evidence showing that giving birth at home is in fact the safest place for mum and baby in terms of a lower likelihood of interventions and infection, why have hospitals taken this step?

Covid-19 and KGHypnobirthing

We would like to re-assure all our parents and teachers that we are taking Covid-19 and your health seriously. We understand that some of you will understandably be feeling more anxious at this time. At KGH we are here to help and support you and although the situation is fluid and changes almost daily, it is important - for both you and your baby - to stay calm in these unprecedented times. You can still use the KGH techniques you have available to release any fears and anxiety. All our free resources can be found here.
