"A grand adventure is about to begin"
– Winnie the Pooh
As a woman who has always been quite scared of pregnancy and giving birth, I realised that many of my friends shared these fears once babies started being a reality in our lives. I therefore wanted to create a program for women like me and my friends, who are terrified of all the known and unknown aspects that come with childbirth.
Being a lifelong student of yoga I was aware of the benefits, and knew intuitively that it would align with my other passion; hypnotherapy. As yoga helps your body stay strong and flexible; completely comfortable in your body, hypnosis on the other hand works with the mind to release stress, anxiety and negative subconscious beliefs about childbirth. This combination allows you to be in tune with your body during pregnancy, prepared to give birth in a confident, calm and magical way, without fear.
In 2022 I certified in the KG Hypnobirthing method in order to offer this pregnancy program from January 2023 in my Kreuzberg studio.
KG Hypnobirthing, founded by Katharine Graves, is a complete antenatal programme designed to help you have the best possible birth experience for you – one that is a positive, empowered birth experience however your birth unfolds.
Key to the programme, you’ll learn how to release stress, anxiety, and fear, which creates pain and instead build confidence and trust in your body’s innate ability to give birth. You’ll be gifted a powerful toolkit of simple but highly effective practices to help create a positive mindset and journey confidently through your labour and birth, including breathing, visualisation, deep relaxation, and self-hypnosis techniques to increase endorphins and oxytocin. By using self-hypnosis techniques you, as the one in control, will be able to put yourself into an altered state of awareness during labour to remain positive, relaxed and calm.
The toolkit includes positive affirmations, practice of relaxation techniques and listening to scripts read by a trusted birth partner in preparation for the birth. KGH has been shown to reduce the discomfort of labour, shorten labour times and give more control, choice and confidence to women for a calm birth with good communication with caregivers. Positive KGH birthing stories can be read here!
The 12 hour KGH program takes place during 4 sessions, in a small group setting, every Saturday for one month. The mother and her partner are also able to partake in up to 6 prenatal yoga classes on a drop-in basis, any time during the pregnancy. This program also contains 3 reiki healing sessions that the mom can use either during pregnancy or for postpartum healing.
No experience is necessary: you can start anytime during your pregnancy and I will help you navigate this special time in your life!
