Halcyon Hypnobirthing at The Nurture Pad

What is Halcyon Hypnobirthing.

Wanting a calm, confident and beautiful pregnancy & birth? 

A NEW approach, and KG Hypnobirthing course, teaching you powerful tools and techniques to transform your pregnancy and birth experience. This evening course teaches you the skills to birth with confidence, love and joy. Discover how…

Halcyon Hypnobirthing combines the complete, KG Hypnobirthing programme with the added benefit of holistic, complementary therapies such as Massage, Acupressure and Mindfulness. Halcyon Hypnobirthing uses the body's most natural, physiological processes to promote confidence in pregnancy, birth and the early days of parenting. These processes promote a calmer, more serene, and gentle pregnancy and birth. The Halcyon Hypnobirthing programme equips you with the knowledge and skills to train your mind to work with your body through:

  • Positive thinking
  • Relaxation Techniques
  • Visualisation 
  • Breathing Techniques

These skills can be used whatever path is taken during pregnancy and the birth process, empowering you to make the right choices for your birth journey.  Mum's and babies who have a planned, or emergency, caesarean can equally benefit from Halcyon Hypnobirthing techniques for a calm, empowering birth experience.  

For me, Halcyon Hypnobirthing is not just for Mum's who want a 'drug-free' birth without medical intervention.  It is as equally important to be able to use Hypnobirthing techniques if you choose, or require, medical pain-relief, and all the Halcyon Hypnobirthing techniques are regarded as examples of Best Practice by NICE.  A high-intervention birth can still use the body's most natural birthing processes for the benefit of Mum and baby - it is all about knowing to use those hormones!

Halcyon Hypnobirthing with The Nurture Pad

I am a KG Registered Hypnobirthing Teacher who trained in London with Katharine Graves, founder of KG Hypnobirthing and the Hypnobirthing Association.  Katherine's outstanding knowledge and skills have resulted in KG Hypnobirthing, a comprehensive, in-depth antenatal course being accepted as the premier UK course for professionals and parents alike.  

As a fully qualified Antenatal Educator and KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner*, I have trained to help you achieve the pregnancy and birth you want, and need. Learning the skills of Hypnobirthing is straightforward with my approach - once you learn how your body works in pregnancy, the skills and techniques follow.

As an educator, I know how to teach and facilitate your learning in a fun, down-to-earth and accessible way.   I know how to best develop your Hypnobirthing skills by teaching the process.  My knowledge and understanding of the process of learning, combined with the knowledge and understanding of Hypnobirthing, is hugely effective.  

Each, and every, birth is as different as every couple, and every family. I encourage Mum's and birth partners to remember this. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all, approach to birthing and parenting.  This is where my success lies. By getting to know you as individuals, I can enhance your self-belief, your confidence and ultimately, your birthing ability.  By taking the time to listen, and to hear, I fully embrace your aspirations and hopes for your positive birth.

*The KG Hypnobirthing training course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and allows practitioners to register as an Antenatal Educator on the Federation of Antenatal Educators (FEDANT).

Hypnobirthing for Halcyon Day's

The KG Hypnobirthing is a whole-pregnancy, antenatal approach to health and well-being in pregnancy and can have the most amazing results in pregnancy and birth.  By inducing a state of deep relaxation, confidence and empowerment, Halcyon Hypnobirthing in North Yorkshire can help you achieve a positive birth experience and a deeper connection with baby. The term Hypnobirthing is misleading because you are not hypnotised, but the taught the skills of self-hypnosis. By undertaking a Hypnobirthing programme you will be taught the skills to birth with confidence, by understanding how your body works with your mind. 

Once learnt, the skills and techniques learnt in the Halcyon Hypnobirthing programme, can last a lifetime and support positive breastfeeding experiences, and postnatal bonding. The full KG Hypnobirthing programme is great for mum's, and birth partners as it lays a solid foundation for parenting, often influencing future parental choices. The shared understanding of the birth, and parenting process, bonds couple's in a planned, and considered approach to many important aspects of nurturing your newborn.

Letter's of Love & Thanks

"Thank you Jen for the most wonderful Hypnobirthing experience.  I am so in love with my little one and on such a high! I am still finding it difficult to believe that I actually managed labour with NO pain relief and gave birth within 30 minutes of being in the hospital.  I thought I would be disappointed to not have the water birth I planned, but this way was so much better!!  I was already 9 cm dilated on first examination :-)

This experience is so completely different to my first and I am sure the Hypnobirthing practice was some of the reason I went into labour on my due date!  Being so relaxed, confident and determined allowed my body to do what it should have done the first time round!!

I wish I had known about Hypnobirthing with my first pregnancy - there are so many things that make sense with it and everybody seems to forgot to tell you!  Looking forward to you coming for your cuddle xx - Zoe (Hypnobirthing Mum)

Amazed at How Well These Women Have Laboured

“A lot of first time mothers come to us after taking hypnobirthing sessions. I have been amazed at how well these women have laboured. I’ve been called on several occasions and have thought the woman ‘wasn’t doing much’ and she has been 7 or 8 centimetres dilated. The training also enables them to remain calm and relaxed”. Elaine Carter (Midwife)

She Was Amazing

“My first experience of attending a woman having a successful VBAC was a woman who used hypnobirthing – she was amazing!” Mary Stewart, M.Sc, B.Sc (Hons), RM

Inspirational Work!
