Practitioner: Serena Williams

There is no right or wrong way to give birth and KGH Hypnobirthing doesn't promise you'll achieve your idea of 'a perfect birth' – nobody can promise that. It will, however, provide you with the tools you need to feel relaxed and in control of the birth of your baby, releasing fear, trusting your body and building confidence.

I often ask people how much time and money they spent planning their wedding day, finding then purchasing their first home or organising a milestone birthday event. Did they rock up on the day saying 'I'll just wing it and see what happens’? Chances are they spent weeks, if not months, fine-tuning the smallest of details to get as close to what they wanted as possible. The birth of a baby is right up there with one of those life-changing events, multiplied by ten, and yet we don't prepare for it with anywhere near as much time or effort.

When you hear the word 'hypnobirthing' you may be thinking isn't that just for people who want drug-free, water, home births? Not at all! The techniques acquired on a KGH Hypnobirthing course are for every birth, however it may be, from a vaginal birth to a C-section, in a hospital, a birth centre or at home.

During the hour long taster sessions at The Hub Serena provides an introduction to hypnobirthing, the use of hypnotherapy and the importance of knowing about our two key nervous systems during labour and birth.

Serena offers private one-to-one courses any time from 20 weeks pregnant to help you prepare for one of the most unforgettable experiences in your life, meeting your baby for the first time and the entrance to motherhood!
