Don't just hope for a better birth, prepare for one.  Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal birth preparation course, which helps you feel calm and confident about your pregnancy and your choices during labour and birth.  Hypnobirthing is not about having a particular type of birth - natural or csection. It is about having the right birth, for you.  The KGH course is a fantastic alternative to NCT, please get in contact for more information. ****Free taster day coming soon!!!**** Birth Without Fear ❤  #kghypnobirthing #hypnobirthing #birthwithoutfear #calmbirth #waterbirth #homebirth #birthwithconfidence #birthwithconfidence #empoweredbirth #positivebirthexperience #positivebirthmovement #positivebirth #informedbirth #instanatal

A question a lot of people ask, is it really worth the money? I see hypnobirthing as an investment in your health, long term. Many parents do not hesitate in buying lots of things that their baby may (or may not) need, just because that is what everyone does... Hypnobirthing is preparation for not only birth, but parenthood. A positive mental attitude when going into the next period of your life really does go a long way, especially at a time when there are so many stressors that we are all subject to. Free antenatal classes do not give you the depth of knowledge that KGHypnobirthing courses do. The amount of support you get, the resources provided and personal experience which teachers have is what you are paying for. I would love for the courses to be as accessible as possible to everyone, but understand that when you are expecting a baby, they may not be your first priority. Please do contact me if you are interested but not sure whether it is affordable to you at this time. I would love to chat and work out a way to help
"When I had my first baby I felt like everyone was judging me. I've since realised that my harshest critic was myself.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We ✨LOVE✨ this advice from the absolute legend that is @steph_dontbuyherflowers 👊🏼 and as a fellow mum of 3 I can confirm it’s sooo damn true!!! It often takes a few babies to realise this so if you’re a first time mum know that no one is judging - you’re doing what you think is best and that’s the best you can do. Always. Tag a new mama who needs to hear it! 👇🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . . #hypnobirthingmadeeasy  #thepositivebirthcompany #hypnobirth #hypnobirthing #positivebirth #calmbirth #gentlebirth #naturalbirth #birthstory #homebirth #waterbirth #birthwithconfidence #birthwithoutfear #informedbirth #empoweredbirth #birthbecomesher #birthisbeautiful #hypnobirthingworks #rockyourbirth

When your sunnies are so reflective it's impossible to take a casual selfie... haha! 😎 ☀ 🤳 Me and LO are making the most of the weather and my mum's amazing garden #grannysincharge #sunny #weekend
April is Cesarean Awareness Month and I encourage you to check out @icanbirth to learn more. I love this picture of my bff practicing some self care of her scar with @earthmamaorganics Skin & Scar Balm after her breech baby was born via a gentle cesarean birth. ❤️

Regrann from @cheyvarner - ☀️ Everyday Birth Magazine is here ☀️ . Over six months ago I sat in my OBGYN office, flipping through magazines, underwhelmed and frustrated by what I saw. I wondered to myself, "What if there were a birth magazine that folks from many different life experiences could see themselves in?" . We suffer from a deep lack of empathy. We don't see enough of each other, hear enough from each other, or share enough with each other. This creates gaps – in our neighborhoods, in our schools, in our hospitals, and doctors' office – gaps that aren't just sad – they have real-life consequences, sometimes life-threatening. . Everyday Birth Magazine is my love letter to the birth world, and also to the world in general. It says, "Whoever you are, you belong here." . It won't change the high death rates and discrimination of new Black and Native and Latinx and LGBTQ parents and babies. It won't expand Medicaid so more folks have greater access to care. It won't improve the quality of care that folks receive today or tomorrow. We have to do that work on the ground. I'm so grateful for all the people who are striving now. . But I believe it's a meaningful step. I hope it'll be seen by and encourage all parents — those who have felt unseen and unheard and those who have already enjoyed the privilege of "normalcy". I hope it'll ignite something productive and positive in care providers who may have lost sight of the social significance of the medical care they provide and encourage those who are already aware. I hope it goes places. I hope it speaks. . And I'm so excited to see what happens next. . #pregnant #maternity #parenttobe #pregnantlife #babybelly #babyontheway #pregnancyphoto #pregnantstyle #pregnancystyle #newborn #family #momlife #parenting #parenthood #mom #baby #mother #parent #pregnancy #birthmatters #birthwork #doula #midwife #labor #childbirth #informedbirth #takebackbirth #everydaybirth #everydaybirthmag #everydaybirth2018

If you have a moment today read Hannah's birth story (link is in the bio👆). Find out how she used her B.R.A.I.N. to make a decision that felt right and was left feeling so ✨positive✨ about her birth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS How cute is this picture of Charlie?!! 💙👶💙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . #hypnobirthingmadeeasy #thepositivebirthcompany #hypnobirth #hypnobirthing #positivebirth #calmbirth #gentlebirth #naturalbirth #birthstory #homebirth #waterbirth #birthwithconfidence #birthwithoutfear #informedbirth #empoweredbirth #birthbecomesher #birthisbeautiful #hypnobirthingworks #rockyourbirth
Anyone other mothers out there who felt like this at the end of this week, or are bracing themselves for another week? 🤚🏼 Me!!! Motherhood is intense and every time I feel like it might send me over the edge I call on the energy of the most intense moments of my births. I usually have a little moan and feel a bit sorry for myself for a while, but then I pull myself together 💪🏼. It’s an energy so beautifully captured here by @robertamartinsfoto 🙌🏼. This energy where, at the very same time you feel you’re at your limit, you’re pulling together power you never knew you had. This is women. This is mothers. This is birth. . . . NOTE: Birth is not something we’re meant to do lying flat on our backs. This inhibiting trend in childbirth came about thanks to King Louis XIV (yes, a man). In labour most women will instinctively squat or get on all fours to allow their pelvises to open optimally and gravity to do its work. I go into more detail about the incredible way our pelvises open in my courses. . . . . . #hypnobirthing #hypnobirthingpractitioner #childbirtheducation #empoweringwomen #empoweredbirth #rockyourbirth #knowyouroptions #informedbirth #birth #health #happiness #power #birthisbeautiful #youcandoit #endorphins #oxytocin #mothers #childbirth #natural #yourbodyisatemple #momentoftruth #life #yougotthis #birthwithoutfear #birthrocks #intuition
Yes !! I talk with clients and #betterbabyclass participants about this all the time ! With the #cesareanrate upwards of 30 to 40% depending on the hospital in the US, thinking about your #birth possibly resulting in a #csection is a really good idea! When plans change , it doesn’t mean all of your wishes for your #birthexperience have to. Talk with your provider about #alternatives such as #skintoskin with partner or skin to skin with support holding #baby from nurses , partner or #doula .  #informedbirth #informedparenting #cesareanawarenessmonth #birthmatters #thegoldenhour #bornwithlovebirth #phillydoula #phillybirthsupport

This summer it will be 5 years since I quit my digital marketing career to retrain. I was 27 and unsure what I wanted to ‘be’. I knew I wanted to work with people and feel that I was making a positive difference to their lives. I loved the fun perks of working in a London office but couldn’t imagine doing it forever. So I went back to uni to do a psychology masters. I worked a load of part time jobs to support myself and then graduated - with a baby in my arms (tends to be a common theme with me 🙈) - and in a lightbulb moment I knew I wanted to be a hypnobirthing teacher 💡 I’d just had this incredible and empowering home birth and a real interest in maternal mental health. Hypnobirthing is the psychology of birth and it felt like all the puzzle pieces suddenly slotted together. . Fast forward to life now and I regularly wake to DMs like the one below and gorgeous photos of beaming women holding their newborn babies. It’s makes my heart sing! I literally cannot think of a more rewarding job. I feel so grateful and happy to be doing what I do and so damn glad that 5 years ago I followed my heart, took the plunge, quit my career and started again 💪🏼. . Thank you to @vixcole for allowing me to share her words and photo. I think you’ll all agree it’s a beautiful picture... . “I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you! I came across your YouTube videos via @louisepentland birth vlog when I was around 34 weeks - I was hooked! I watched all the content and especially the breathing exercises made total sense to me. You made it sound all so easy and logical!.... My second son Oscar arrived on Saturday 14th April - he was 9 days early weighing 9lbs 3oz! It was a very quick labour at 4 hours and I used the breathing techniques through my contractions and in the active labour stage - I didn’t have any pain relief! I also had my water birth which I was advised against due to excess fluid but I ensured I asked all the right questions about risk
