Hello, I'm Katie!

I am a Mama of two Hypnobirthed babies and a fully accredited KGHypnobirthing Practitioner. Firstly, let me congratulate you on your pregnancy and extend you a warm welcome to Halcyon Hypnobirthing. I’m so glad that you’re considering taking a Hypnobirthing course with me. I firmly believe that it’s going to change how you feel about birth and as a result, how you give birth to your baby.

 

Let me begin by telling you a little bit more about me...

What is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing works simply by connecting your body and mind, teaching you to deeply relax and banish any fears that you have built up around the idea of childbirth. Hypnobirthing isn't pain relief but it shows you that childbirth needn't be painful. If the body is allowed to do what it is expertly built to do, birthing a baby simply happens and needn't be a medicalised or medicated event. Breathing, relaxation and practice is really all there is to it. A mother or birthing person who uses Hypnobirthing will often say that giving birth was the most wonderful and empowering experience of their life.

 

Hypnobirthing banishes fear, builds confidence and gives you access to information and choices. It empowers you to ask questions, make informed decisions around your care and be an active participant in the birth of your baby.

 

For too long now, the media has portrayed an image of a high-stress dash to the hospital, a lot of screaming and panic and a father or birth partner who feels helpless and doesn't know how to help the person in labour. This is not reality. Birth can be beautiful, calm, comfortable and a deeply empowering and positive experience for everyone involved. The birth partner is the most important and supportive asset in the birthing room. 

 

Hypnobirthing is gaining huge popularity as the movement to make birth better gains momentum around the world.
