What people say about us.....

  • Talwinder

    I found the menopause workshop both informative and empowering. I felt the speakers were highly qualified in their particular field and mostly enjoyed the hypnotherapy session. I’ve used some of the tips from that session regularly since. I definitely feel much better equipped to move forward into the next chapter of my life. Having been a client at The Maris Practice for 15 years, I can thoroughly recommend what they offer in the way of therapies and workshops.

Hypnobirthing Antenatal Course

Hypnobirthing Antenatal Course is a 3 session course for first time and subsequent parents with Rosie Gray from Richmond Doulas.

Our KG Hypnobirthing course, run by Rosie, a highly experienced birth doula, will give you and your partner the knowledge and the tools to have a truly positive birth experience, as well as give your baby the best possible start in life.

During the course, you will learn to rebuild trust and confidence in your own body’s ability to birth, by understanding that ‘birth’ is not a medical emergency, but a very natural process. A woman who is free from fear and feels safe and unobserved will produce oxytocin and endorphins freely, paving the way for a gentle, calm and empowering birth. Rosie will show you how to release that fear, through breathing techniques, deep relaxation, visualisations as well as the power of the mind and positive affirmations.

As a highly experienced birth doula, Rosie will also weave in her extensive experience having attended a vast number births. She will provide you with considerable practical information based on this experience. Rosie regularly support births at West Mid, Kingston, Chelsea and Westminster and Queen Charlotte's, so can help you to prepare for birth at your specific hospital. Your birth partner will also learn how to practically support you in labour – there are plenty of amazing techniques and tips, well honed through Rosie's experience.

By the end of the course you will both be fully confident and relaxed as you approach the birth of your baby.

This is a 3 session small group course (a maximum of 4 couples) and you also receive:

  • the Hypnobirthing book by Katherine Graves,
  • a folder of handouts to guide your practice at home,
  • a relaxation CD/MP3 download,
  • and ongoing support on the end of the phone if desired.

The group environment is also very beneficial to many soon-to-be parents for friendship and support during the early days. In fact often you will meet some lifelong friends!

Classes are on Wednesdays from 7.30pm. The course costs £275. Book by calling us on 020 8891 3400 or email us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The upcoming course dates are:
