Katharine Attends Royal College of Midwives Annual Conference

Written by The Hypnobirthing Association on .

The Royal College of Midwives annual conference took place on 13th and 14th November at the Telford International Centre. Over 1,000 midwives came together to discuss relevant topics that relate to pregnancy, birth and the profession of midwifery. There was a fantastic range of presentations and many excellent speakers.

Katharine was in attendance along with Teri Gavin-Jones and Vanessa Hodge, promoting KG Hypnobirthing to all our members' benefit, and potential training available for midwives. Throughout the day the KG Hypnobirthing stand had a great deal of interest and was even visited by Cathy Warwick, General Secretary of the Royal College of Midwives and Lesley Page, President of The RCM.

Change of Career? Become a Hypnobirthing Teacher

Written by Jane Pelham on .

We often hear from our members how satisfied and proud they are to have trained to become a hypnobirthing practitioner and how rewarding they have found it.  They love working with expectant parents and being allowed the privilege of sharing this wonderful method of childbirth with others.

What is Hypnobirthing?

Written by Jane Pelham on .

Hypnobirthing is a method of natural childbirth which uses relaxation, breathing and a range of related techniques to help mothers to give birth more easily in a natural, comfortable calm and relaxed manner.  

This feeling of calm and relaxation helps release any fears and anxieties about childbirth, and instead helps build confidence in yourself and trust in your body to give birth naturally. Hypnobirthing also helps to minimise unnecessary medical intervention and trauma for you and your child.

Hypnobirthing Association Study Day

Written by Jane Pelham on .

We held a wonderful Study Day in October, with some quality speakers who really brought some excellent insight to the day, including Mary Cronk who showed her experience of helping mothers with breed presenting babies to give birth normally.

We hope to hold some more Study Days on future dates, but we thought we would leave the programme up for those of you who were unable to attend, so you could see how the day was structured.
