The Forest Birthing Company was founded by Kate Nelson. She is a hypnobirthing mum who is passionate about helping other women have their best birth experience.
Kate holds the KGHypnobirthing Diploma and she was trained directly by the highly-respected Katharine Graves, who founded the KGHypnobirthing method and the Hypnobirthing Association. Katharine has taught hypnobirthing to more than 300 midwives and 3,000 couples.
Kate (pictured above with her daughter) says: “Hypnobirthing helped me and my partner enormously in pregnancy and in active labour. It had such a profound impact that I knew I wanted to spread the word – so here I am!
“All too often, women enter labour feeling anxious and afraid. But hypnobirthing helped me have the most relaxed pregnancy and taught me to look forward to birth.
“Being calm in pregnancy and birth is not a gimmick. It’s really important for the health of you and your baby.
“The course also gave us so much factual information about birth choices that we were never told in medical appointments or elsewhere. It empowered us and gave my partner a truly active role in the birth too.
“If you want to increase the chances of having a calm, comfortable birth and reduce pain then hypnobirthing is for you.”
