I recently completed the KGH Hypnobirthing Teacher Trainer Course.
I choose the KGH method because back in 2018, someone lent me the KGH Hypnobirthing book whilst I was pregnant with my first child. My husband and I read it from cover to cover, loved everything about it and were convinced we were ready for a magical ‘’hypnobirth’’.
For many reasons, the birth was not at all as expected! Realising there was more to learn than just reading the book, the second time around, we decided to take the actual KGH course!
Through this online course we were now equipped with the tools and knowledge to have an incredible home birth, one you can listen to (linked in the show notes).
We realised there is a common misconception around hypnobirthing, one that we made the first time around. We assumed that it merely involved birth preparation, but we discovered it’s so much more than that.
In the intro to this episode, I share with you a real life example of why!
To delve deeper into the non-mystical world of Hypnobirthing and its misunderstood aspects we are joined by the wonderful and knowledgeable Nancy Keen.
Nancy Keen is a mum of 3, a hypnobirthing teacher of 17 years. She is a KGH Teacher trainer and founder of The Birth Right Academy. She not only empowers parents to have the best birth for them, but also mentors hypnobirthing teachers, emphasizing her motto ‘’knowledge is power’’.
In this episode with Nancy tells us all about:
- What is actually covered in a hypnobirthing course
- Why she choose to train as a teacher with KGH
- Her experiences in training medical professionals and midwives in hypnobirthing
- Why the worst thing about hypnobirthing is the word ‘’hypno’’ birthing.
- Hypnobirthing for caesarean births.
- Nancy’s 3 births and what she learnt along the way
