KGHypnobirthing on BBC Woman's Hour

It was with great excitment in the office that we were contacted by BBC Woman's Hour last week and were invited to go up to the studios to talk to them about KGHypnobirthing.  There has been a growing awareness in the main stream media recently and this is a real culmination of the hard work that has gone into spreading the word.  Thanks are due to our wonderful PR girl Lotte Daley and our whole team of KG Hypnobirthing teachers who keep the brand name flying and of course all those wonderful mums who share their inspirational hypnobirthing stories. 

Tune in on Wednesday 7th September between 10 and 11am. 

The details of the program can be found here. It will also be available as a podcast that you can stream after the live program.

KG Hypnobirthing in the Headlines - Thanks Paula Lane!

OK! is featuring the lovely actress Paula Lane and her growing family in their latest magazine.  Paula and her husband Tom talk candidly about the recent birth of their daughter Penny and how KG Hypnobirthing made all the difference.

Katharine Graves; "I had the pleasure of teaching KG Hypnobirthing to Paula and her husband Tom Shaw in recent months.  After a traumatic first birth with Arthur they had decided to go to hospital for their second birth.  The course, which is a complete in-depth antenatal course, gave them all the knowledge and confidence they needed.  They practised regularly, opted for a home birth which research shows is usually the safest option, and the results speak for themselves."

In Paula's own words; ”A completely natural water birth.  What an experience.  I cannot thank you enough!”

Congratulations Paula Lane and Tom Shaw

Congratulations to the lovely Paula Lane and her husband Tom Shaw for the arrival of their second child.  Paula, well known for her role as Kylie Platt on Coronations Street has recently left the ‘street’ to concentrate some precious time with her growing family.

We are looking forward to hearing the full inside swoop on their birth experience but most of all getting a cuddle with the new bundle of joy.

Tom and Paula recently studied a KG Hypnobirthing course.  We love the tweet Tom put out after their baby arrived:

The Hypnobirthing Book

Graves K, Marlborough:  Katharine Publishing, 2012.  205 pages. £10.17. ISBN 9780957144507

Katharine’s well-written book is a pleasure to read. Her enthusiasm and championing of ‘natural birth’ shines out through these pages.


The book sends out a positive message as a midwife, mother and grandmother of what is achievable in life.

From the pregnant mother’s perspective, it gives her tremendous insight and strengthens the fact that she does have a CHOICE.

That she may birth her baby in whatever arena she feels comfortable with.

It prepares her for the best possible birth that she could wish for.

The book then takes one through the different stages of pregnancy and how to prepare for every eventuality that may arise.

A very important factor, that is sometimes overlooked, but not in this book, is the role of the father. The ‘Dad factor’ has not been forgotten. It shows fathers how they can be part of this amazing journey and what role they may assume whilst their partner is pregnant, in labour and beyond.

Paula Lane featured in OK Magazine - Career, Babies and Hypnobirthing

ok cover magazine hypnobirthingMany thanks to the lovely Paula Lane and her husband Tom Shaw for helping to spread the word about Hypnobirthing.  In her recent feature in OK Magazine she talks about her upcoming birth and using KG Hypnobirthing. 

Since this was published I have had the pleasure of teaching KG Hypnobirthing to both Paula and Tom Shaw in their beautiful cottage with a fabulous view across the Yorkshire Dales. Paula and Tom were incredibly hospitable, and plied me with cream scones. It’s a good thing the course was over in two days!

Paula had just finished her last day’s filming for Coronation Street and can now turn her attention to looking after her son, Arthur (toys everywhere!), and focussing on the birth of her new baby. The cottage was full of flowers, cards and gifts she had been given as leaving presents at her farewell party on ‘the street’ where she has been part of the team for 5 years. She told me she is sad to see this period of her life draw to a close and to leave the Coronation Street ‘family’, but is looking forward to new avenues opening up when she is ready to go back to work.
