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

KG Hypnobirthing at Southmead Maternity Hospital

We started offering our courses in April 2018 and have taught over 300 couples. We were running two courses each month, and now run them via Zoom due to Covid-19 restrictions. This course was easily transferred to this new format of teaching too.

We have received excellent feedback from couples and received some wonderful birth stories too. Couples feel empowered, their birth partner feels that they have a real role and confidence in the birth process. For couples, whose birth maybe not had been what they wished for, either an instrumental or caesarean, they often comment that the health professionals were impressed with how calm they were. In addition, they still comment that their birth was a positive experience as they were empowered to ask questions.
We offer discounted prices for woman who have been referred by our perinatal mental health midwives. They report that after attending our course they start to look forward to giving birth.

Very detailed and in-depth course - Amazing for midwives

At a recent course for midwives in Belfast.  Some of our feedback:

Comprehensive, evidence based information delivered in an enjoyable way

Seeing how KGH can work for all midwives unlike other hypnobirthing courses – working together is so important

Very detailed and in-depth course. Amazing for midwives – this should be part of university accreditation for students and more hospitals in N Ireland need this method

I loved how concise, informative and clear / usable all the information you gave us. I feel quite confident about teaching KGHypnobirthing now

Professional, Flexible and Inspiring

From our initial contact to completion of the course, KG hypnobirthing were professional, flexible, accommodating, very well supported by the latest midwifery evidence and above all inspiring. We had 21 members of staff trained and every single one of us found the standard of teaching extremely high. Comments were made by staff about how positive and motivated the training made them feel. We are looking to become a hypnobirthing hospital and very much look forward to a continued professional friendship with KG hypnobirthing.
Thanks you so much!

With kind regards

Why Are Midwives Upskilling with KG Hypnobirthing?

iStock 000004897820 smA revolution in midwifery care is truly underway in the UK and further afield. This change has come about from a grass roots movement, from word of mouth and through the mothers themselves. Their desire to have a natural and comfortable childbirth has led them to KG Hypnobirthing.  

And their key supporters, the midwives, once they have witnessed a hypnobirth, want to know more.

Here we chat to a group of midwives about their experience of hypnobirthing and hope this gives you an insight into their reasons for upskilling in this area.

KGHypnobirthing at Darent Valley Hospital

Between March 2015 and February 2016 297 women attended our hypnobirthing classes at Darent Valley Hospital. Hypnobirthing techniques make a difference to the women that use them. Women are empowered and believe in their own strength. Even if their birth does not go as planned, they are so positive afterwards.

The birth stories these new families share are powerful and a great place to build family life from. We now take referrals as part of the Tocophobia pathway. We see these women with more confidence making choices about their care after hypnobirthing. We have started incorporating the techniques with women planning vaginal birth after caesarean section and hope to in the future to start classes specifically for those who have suffered past birth trauma.

The popularity of the classes is increasing with our mothers’ recommendations, I hope we can keep up with demand.

I came away invigorated

‘As a footnote I would just like to say that as a rather sceptical midwife of some mature age I did the course at Brighton last week which was run by Nancy and Kemi, I came away invigorated and with a very different view on childbirth.  Hopefully I will be able to share this wonderful new skill with the women improving their birthing experience’.

Well worth the wait!

The whole course was absolutely amazing with fabulous, entertaining knowledge with teachers Nancy and Lisa. I have waited nearly 10 years to do and well worth the wait. Fulfilled all my expectations and can't wait to practice. THANK YOU! 

Midwife, Lincoln. January 2020

Completely Changed my Outlook on Midwifery

You completely changed my outlook on midwifery and natural childbirth - I have been a 'high risk' midwife on labour ward for too long. 

It was so useful knowing how to demonstrate everything to parents and back up with the evidence so it doesn't look like we are talking rubbish. Thank you. 

Midwife, Lincoln. January 2020.

Renewed Passion

Just to mention how you inspired and enlightened our group of L&D midwives, back at work we can't stop talking about our fabulous two days doing the hypnobirthing course, and yourself and Nancy were a perfect combination, your exuberance certainly shone through, loved the 'boots' and the lovely 'tee and pee' breaks, we were never so excited to have proper tea and lunch breaks, you both lifted our spirits and gave us a renewed passion to continue to support our amazing women during labour and birth with the extra power of KGHypobirthing - Bridget (Senior Midwife MLBU L&D)

Your course has really inspired me

Just wanted to say again, thanks so much for bringing us your very special course.  I have looked into it before, but doing it as a group gave me the confidence I needed.  I have been a midwife for 15 years and always thought if I won the lottery I would still go to work, but recently I have become very disheartened, I think in part because I’m a busy working mum now.  Your course has really inspired me to read again, be interested again, and love midwifery again. To remember how lucky I am to be part of this everyday miracle.  I really hope that I can pass on the gift of my knowledge from this course to enable couples to welcome their babies into the world in a calm positive way.


Enjoyable and Inspiring

I just want to thank you for this opportunity and teaching such a valuable course which I found so enjoyable and inspiring.


Your Testimonials Are Very Well Earned

The way you have grown this phenomenon is AMAZING. Pure courage, dedication and grindingly hard work has got you here. Thank you for how you have shared it with so many of us. The testimonials are VERY well earned.

KG Hypnobirthing Method is the Best

I went to a 2 hour talk on Hypnobirthing for Midwives, but I learnt more from KG Hypnobirthing and you in 20 minutes than I did in the whole 2 hours at a different talk.  Thanks
