Since I was a young girl, I knew having children was always a key part of my future, however (in the spirit of honesty), giving birth absolutely, unequivocally terrified me! Yes, I had watched women in labour in TV Dramas, and One Born Every Minute became a regular binge watch for me when it started! (A very bad move for a woman already petrified of giving birth …)
Naturally, from the moment we knew we were expecting our little bundle of joy, my mind shot to instant panic, worry and uncertainty about what was to come.
This was until I came across the word Hypnobirthing! On researching, I learnt that this was a method fast becoming very popular with women in various areas of the world and celebrities. (If Fearne Cotton and Giovanna Fletcher were raving about it, it must be worth a try!)
I took a 1-2-1 KG Hypnobirthing course, learnt the techniques and practiced throughout my third trimester, and let’s just say I have never looked back! After an incredible birth experience that I never imagined possible for me, having always suffered terribly with anxiety, here I am today teaching other women to release their own fears and embrace the wonderful physiology of birth.
