KG Hypnobirthing

Last Minute Arrival

No, it wasn't a baby. It was my arrival at this evening's HypnoBirthing class in Wiltshire. Having worked in London in the afternoon it seemed that a 4pm departure from London would give me plenty of time to reach the Wiltshire class this evening. But an accident on the M4 involved a detour around Wokingham which added an extra hour to the journey and I arrived at the class with timing that would have done justice to Phineas Fogg, at exactly 7pm.

Fosbury Discovery

We had a slight emergency at the Fosbury course last week. No, it wasn't that one of the babies arrived during the course. It was simply that I usually hold the course in my cottage and the sitting room accommodates a maximum of four couples. I live in the depths of the country and, though it's easy to get to from towns like Newbury, Andover, Marlborough, Swindon and Hungerford, there are very few people who live within five miles, so this system usualy works very well. Last week four couples had booked onto the course and then, at the last moment, two more wanted to come.

Lunchtime Coincidence

Very often we decide to have lunch together on the second day of a HypnoBirthing course so that everyone can get to know each other better and maybe want to keep in touch and meet up after the babies are born. Yesterday we all went out for a light lunch near the Union Jack Club where we were doing HypnoBirthing. There was a table of 19 of us including 9 very pregnant women. Next to us was a group at another large table, and they all seemed to be couples who had small babies.

Riverside Relaxation

Today was the first really sunny day of the year so the riverside venue for the Teddington HypnoBirthing course was absolutely perfect. We sat in the sun by the river for lunch, and watching the boats go by added to the relaxed atmosphere of the course.

How Every Birth Should Be

I had a lovely phone call yesterday. The sort that makes me extremely happy. The call was from a father whose wife had just given birth to a lovely baby girl, their second baby. The first labour had been long and difficult. In fact it was so bad that it was some time before they had a second baby.

Convenient New Course Venue

I've just found a great venue for a course which will help people in Surrey or South London. This week I visited The Banstead Centre which is in a really convenient position just off the M25. There's plenty of parking there, and I'm delighted that The HypnoBirthing Centre can start courses there in the summer. It plugs a gap in the provision of courses in that area, and is in a relaxed and quiet setting. Have a look at the website for details of dates www.kghypnobirthing.com.

Sticking to your guns to achieve a beautiful HypnoBirthing child-birth

Hello again,

I wanted to reproduce this story in full, as its something quite remarkable and very inspiring for those of us that believe strongly in the benefits of natural child-birth, for both baby and mother. Liz did a HypnoBirthing course with me a few months ago, and ended up walking into a hospital situation she wasn't happy with. However she had the courage and conviction to take things into her own hands and achieve a healthy natural birth on her own terms.

Here is Liz's remarkable HypnoBirthing story...
