What is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal education. It is simple, practical and logical approach to achieving the most natural and calm birthing experience. It was developed by founder and leading Hypnobirthing teacher, Katharine Graves.

Katharine has personally coached 2000 couples and trained over 400 Hypnobirthing Teachers. 

The Hypnobirthing Course developed by Katharine is widely respected for its depth and the quality of teachers.

Background to Hypnobirthing

Doctor Grantly Dick-Read's belief - that woman could labour gladly. The question was first raised in his mind by a young woman whom he attended in 1918. She astonished him by refusing the anaesthesia he offered. After her child was born, she said, "it didn't hurt. It wasn't meant to hurt, was it, doctor?" He came to a conclusion, No, it was not meant to hurt; and then had to find answers to the inevitable second question, Why, then, does it hurt?Experience shows that when a woman can be prepared so that fear and tension are prevented from occurring in labour, there is minimal or no suffering, pain or agony.
