KGHypnobirthing @ is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free birthing. This amazing program teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. You will learn how to call upon your body’s own natural relaxants and thus lessen, or even eliminate, discomfort and the need for medication. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with all animal mothers; naturally.
You will be fascinated as you view Hypnobirthing videos, showing labouring mothers, awake, alert and in good humour as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the fear that causes pain and tension. Through self-hypnosis i.e. deep relaxation, special breathing, and visualization, Hypnobirthing teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.
HypnoBirthing will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts. With Hypnobirthing, you will not be in a trance or a sleep state. You will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.

Gilly's own natural births, attending the births of her 7 grandchildren and her many years of professional experience caring for birthing women has confirmed her belief that birth is essentially a normal life event for the majority and should not be treated as a medical event.
