Interested in Hypnobirthing in Norfolk?

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I imagine you’ve come here to find out just what hypnobirthing is all about and how it can help you to have an incredible, positive birth experience. Perhaps you are a first time mum, anxious after hearing scary birth stories from friends, or maybe a second time mum who has had a difficult previous experience and wants to avoid history repeating itself? I am here to help you.

I am a qualified hypnobirthing teacher providing group and private hypnobirthing classes in and around Norwich, Norfolk.  I have a Diploma in Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing, the only hypnobirthing course approved and accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and the training of choice for the NHS.

I am registered with The Federation of Antenatal Teachers (FEDANT) who work closely with professional bodies, the Nursing and Midwifery Council and government regulatory bodies to ensure teaching is delivered at a high standard and their code of ethics and practice is adhered to.

As well as teaching hypnobirthing I am also Facilitator for the Norwich & Norfolk Positive Birth Movement. We work hard to spread positivity about childbirth by hosting local meet ups for expectant and new mothers.

I believe that all women are designed to give birth with confidence, calmly and comfortably, we just sometimes need help with how to do it!  You are capable of and deserve a positive birth experience, whatever that may look like to you.

Please feel free to read my story to find out more about who I am and how I came to teach KGHypnobirthing.  I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve the wonderful, positive, life affirming birth you and your baby deserve.  Charlotte x

What is Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing is a thorough and profound antenatal preparation that is beneficial for all parents, experiencing any kind of birth, in any kind of setting. The carefully crafted course equips you with the tools you need to be able to give birth in the most positive way possible.  In doing so, you are ensuring the best start to your new family life for you, your partner and importantly your baby.  I provide in-depth knowledge of the physiology of birth and what to expect during your journey to becoming a parent, an explanation of the importance of positive language, how to reduce anxiety and stress and, as a result, reduce pain.  In addition I will teach you simple but effective self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques to allow your body to work as it is designed.  Most importantly I will give you the confidence you need to trust your body, your instincts and your decisions enabling you to take responsibility for your baby’s birth.

The Positive Induction Course

While induction of labour is something that should be very carefully considered, some women do have a genuine medical need for an induction.  If you have decided that an induction is what is right for you and your baby I firmly believe that you can still have a positive birth experience and have specifically designed this course to help you achieve that.
