They are followed by tea and cake whilst a local related professional comes and chats about what else there is available for you and your baby in Leighton Buzzard.

Often around pregnancy and birth there can be some anxiety. KG hypnobirthing uses evidence based information and relaxation skills to help address these anxieties to help you have the best birth for you. The hypnobirthing sessions will examine how the mind and body work together in pregnancy and labour. This will be applied to the different stages of labour to help equip you with skills to manage your birth. We will also look at alternative pain management, birth methods and inductions of labour, with the aim to empower you with a sound knowledge base so that you feel in control of your birthing experience.
Partner yoga is a great way of learning practical skills for both of you to use during labour and birth that will help you mentally and physically prepare for the birth of your baby. Dad's you will learn how you can assist with breathing and positioning to create a happy Birth-day for you and your partner. No yoga experience necessary and is suitable for all levels of fitness.
You will be provided with a KG Hypnobirthing information pack, KG Hypnobirthing book and MP3 relaxation scripts. Plus information on yoga postures and breathing techniques to practise at home and keep with your birthing bag.
