Rosie Gray is a Katherine Graves trained hypnobirthing teacher, birth and postnatal doula, based locally to Kew. She feels passionately that good antenatal, birth and postnatal support is an important foundation for a positive and empowering birth experience and this can bring long-term benefits to a mother and her family.
Her philosophy is one of nurture, care and encouragement, so that you feel relaxed and confident in the run up to your birth and in the early weeks with your precious baby. Rosie firmly believes that hypnobirthing gives you and your partner the tools to have a positive birth experience and has been supporting families in the area since 2010.
About the Workshop
Hypnobirthing is a very logical, evidence based process of releasing fear and building confidence in your body’s ability to birth your baby, so paving way for gentle and empowering birth. On this course, Rosie will show you how to release that fear and work with your body through breathing techniques, deep relaxation, visualisations and positive affirmations. You will also gain an understanding of the hormones of birth as well as the physiology and mechanics of birth.
As a highly experienced birth doula, Rosie will also weave in her extensive experience having attended a vast number births. You will learn how to manage labour itself, using rezobo and massage techniques which will also help get your baby into an optimal position for a quicker and more comfortable birth. Your birth partner will learn to be the best support they can be and Rosie will also help you put together your birth plan and provide ongoing support by phone and email until your baby arrives. By the end of the kg hypnobirthing course you will be relaxed and confident, looking forward to your time in labour and welcoming your baby into the world.
You will receive the Hypnobirthing book by Katherine Graves, a folder of handouts to guide your practice at home, a relaxation MP3 download and a 50% Off Voucher for a Pregnancy Treatment at Earthlife.
