These are some of the questions I get asked the most often but if you don’t see an answer for you, contact me here.

Q. What is KGH hypnobirthing?

A. KGH Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal education bringing together the physiology and psychology of birth to achieve a positive and empowering birth experience, however you give birth. Find out more here.


Q. Does Hypnobirthing really work?

A. Yes! Hypnobirthing works for everyone in an individual way. I can’t guarantee a ‘perfect’ birth but I can ensure that you feel empowered and confident in the choices you make for you and your baby.


Q. When should I attend a Hey Mama Hypnobirthing session?

A. You should try to book a session for when you are between 20 and 37 weeks pregnant but as practice is so important to hypnobirthing being effective, it is really the earlier the better! This gives you plenty of time to familiarise yourself with the tools and techniques.

Small group session details are here or contact me to arrange a one to one session.

Q. Who should attend a Hey Mama Hypnobirthing session?

A. Partners or birth partners are very much encouraged to attend as they have a vital role during labour and birth. If this is not possible, you are welcome to attend a session by yourself.


Q. I’ve already booked an NCT antenatal class, why should I book a Hey Mama Hypnobirthing?

A. Here are some of the things you’ll learn that are not covered in most antenatal classes.

  • Practical tips to make labour and birth calm and so relaxed.

  • Non-judgemental, non-patronising logical information about birth.

  • Importance of a birth partner and their role in labour and birth.

  • Opportunity to practice your skills with a teacher - you may find difficulty doing this with a book or CD alone.

  • You learn how and why hypnobirthing works rather than just honing the techniques.


Q. I’ve had a baby before, how will I benefit from booking a Hey Mama Hypnobirthing session?

A. If you have already taken antenatal classes or even hypnobirthing classes before then I can offer you a Refresher Hey Mama Hypnobirthing session. This will take place over 3 hours in the comfort of your own home at your convenience and is a brilliant reminder that you’ve got this Mama!

Maybe the first time round you decided not to take any classes and the birth didn’t turn out the way you had imagined, then the full One to One or Small Group Hey Mama Hypnobirthing sessions are recommended.

I’m always open to your questions or feedback. Get in touch!
