Why do this course? The results speak for themselves from hospitals, midwives, mothers and fathers & I invite you to read the testimonials at the bottom of this page. Happy clients, both parents, teachers and midwives are the true testament to how well this comprehensive and in-depth antenatal course works.
Benefits for your baby and you
Benefits of the benefits
The benefits to you are obvious, but the long term benefits to your baby cannot be over-estimated. I repeatedly get wonderful birth stories of babies being calm, content and sleeping really well. They seem to thrive better. It may seem miraculous but this is how it is designed to be.

Why do a course with me?
There are many teachers and many different types of antenatal courses out there. I understand that this can be very confusing (trust me, I have been there!). What I love about this course is the part about different procedures (besides all the birthing knowledge of course). When I was pregnant and did my course with a different method, this wasn't told and I know now that this is really (!) important to make sure you get your positive birth experience you want. During the course I teach, I will take you through the procedures step-by-step and how they can alter your birth. So if something is suggested during pregnancy, labour and/or birth, you have the knowledge to make an informed decision.
I am a licensed KG Hypnobirthing teacher, and I had my own birth experience with our little girl Hannah. My birth wasn't perfect, but I learned so much from this. It was powerful, strong and Hannah and I came out healthy and in no need of any medical assistance. I know where I made 'mistakes' and I am committed to prevent you making the same mistakes I made, to improve your birth experience even further.
For the past decade I have been teaching in different fields, in different languages and countries, and as a former data analyst I love researching the newest information. My courses are always up-to-date with the newest evidence based information! Due to personal experience and my master specialisation History - Holocaust and Genocide to be precise - I have worked with many people that have had personal issues like depression, body insecurities, child and domestic abuse survivors. There isn't much I haven't seen in this world, good or bad. If you are looking to work with someone that has a great understanding of birth, human behaviour, cultures and you want to connect through a deep heart-connection to get ready for your birth? Look no further, we are a great team!

I’m Susanne Grant, International Birth Preparation & Healing Coach and I am known for my outstanding healing results and birth preparation support after (birth) trauma.
When I got pregnant, my past experiences of child abuse put me on a different road of care from my team of midwives. My birth gave me a new mission in life and I am now working with clients all around the world to help them heal after (birth) trauma and to help them achieve a positive birth experience.

“Thank you very much for an enlightening weekend, Susanne! I now feel confident, I have a clearer idea of what to expect, and really....feel ready for birth! My husband is also aware of a whole lot of things he did not know before, and he also now has an open mind to a lot of aspects of birth he was unaware of. As a result, we already feel closer together and more empowered. Your natural, wise and evidence-based approach made us feel very at ease and engaged in the subject. We came home and wrote our birth plan! So thank you very much! Truly worth it.”
“I am 4 weeks away from having my first baby and I am absolutely TERRIFIED about childbirth. I had no idea what hypnobirthing was until I did your course and it's really helped me to see that birth doesn't have to be a screaming train-wreck! It was amazing to see how easily we can take control of our bodies, of the natural process and enjoy birth as a calm, beautiful and magical experience.
I have lots to take away and practice and it's given me some more research to do - positive birth stories here we come! I also want to thank you for the personal support - I had some rather 'personal' questions I wanted ask you and I was responded to with such kindness, care and extra support via private message and had all of my intimate questions answered. Thank you Susanne :)”
“You have no idea how much you helped me ground as earth mother for my birth. I was so frightened but you helped me learn how to flow with my body, be in control and stay calm and focused. I gave birth in 3 hours 12mins on just gas and air and only minor tears. Thank you so much for helping me, I can't tell you how much it means xxxxxxxxxx”

“Chris and I wanted to say thank you for taking us on the journey toward a birth experience we can share with a smile. We had our baby girl 6 days ago ... an unplanned homebirth because I hadn't realised how far I'd progressed because I was coping so well. So calm an experience it had been, that our baby girl was actually born with her waterbag still intact and a 10/10 APGAR rating! I got to cuddle her as soon as she was born and the umbilical cord pulsed for a good 20 minutes between us. She is our second child, after our son was born by emergency c-section. It was my birth experience with him which made me try hypnobirthing, as I remained completely traumatized from the numerous interventions and ultimate surgery. I actually cried to learn I was pregnant again, solely thinking about the disappointment I felt last time and how scared I was that I couldn't do any better. The number of medical visits I had during this pregnancy exacerbated my guilt, weakness, and all those negative residual feelings and fears I carried. It also didn't help much that due to already having a toddler, and opposite work schedules, it was difficult for my husband and I to find time to do the relaxations together. But we persevered with 1am relaxations together and lots and lots of replaying 'statements for an empowering birth'. In spite of all those hang-ups I felt burdened with after the experience with my son, amazingly I remained sooo confident during our daughter's birth. I took a nice hour long nap during labour, and carried on with my day even managing to play football with my son less than 3 hours before his sister was born! I've attached a picture taken about 5 minutes after the birth because my expression tells just how strongly I felt ... how strongly I still feel. I had this amazing confidence I never expected to have... and then.. I did it!! A drug free VBAC! I gave my baby what I know to be the best start possible in life. Thank you for helping me have my healing birth.”

“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.”
“ For me, hypnobirthing has the right mix of science, experience, common sense and wisdom. Thank you Susanne!”
“Initially, we thought to spend this much money on a course (even though the baby room is much more expensive lol) was a bit silly. After much talking we decided it was worth the investment and booked the course with you. I am absolutely shocked how much we learned and I believe you should charge much more, Susanne! What you taught us was absolutely invaluable and I wish every couple would know how important educating themselves is. Thank you for your wisdom and support. P.s. Last week Diana gave birth to our twins in just a few hours and we are all doing very well! We can’t thank you enough!”
