Mindful Beginnings offer a complete antenatal training programme following nationally recognised KGHypnobirthing programme. Hypnobirthing is centred on releasing fear and building confidence in the natural process of birth through practising relaxation techniques.

Hypnobirthing aims to create the learning environment where magic happens. Mothers, fathers, families and friends experience the confident and calm pregnant women making decisions that suit her body and her baby. Using the KGHypnobirthing tools, techniques and information to make empowered choices that will affect her family positively for life.

 Hypnobirthing provides you with the skills to make the decisions that fit in with your ideal of how birth can be, which puts mums firmly in charge. 

Hypnobirthing is for everyone – and everyone includes birth partners.  Birth partners report feeling protective, confident, and happy that they have a central role in supporting mum and baby as the birth progresses. The birth breathing alongside the hypnosis techniques supports mum to remain in the calm mode, and whilst you’re in this mode you’re best placed to produce birth hormones which are essential for a gentle, easier birth experience.
