Introduction

Congratulations on your pregnancy and a very warm welcome to Together Birthing. I'm Emma, a passionate hypnobirthing practitioner, and hypnobirthing mum with a zeal for what I teach.

In Aberdeen, I offer live online hypnobirthing courses for expectant couples, to completely prepare you and your birth partner for your baby's birth. The course includes an entire childbirth education program, together with 9 relaxation downloads and a course companion book.

Hypnobirthing techniques can play a huge role in the birthing experience as I know first hand from being a hypnobirthing mum myself. I love to share the wonders of hypnobirthing with other parents-to-be so that they too can benefit from the course and experience an easier, calmer birth.

My training was with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and also with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy in 2016. The course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and comprises 4 x 2 hour weekly classes.

FAQs

Hypnobirthing is an acquired skill, and aims to keep you calm and in control so that you can have a more positive birthing experience. A completely pain-free labour is possible, but cannot be guaranteed. According to the Hypnobirthing Institute, 65-70% of hypnobirthing mums do not need any other form of pain relief.

If you want a drug-free birth hypnobirthing is your best bet as it reduces the need for pain relief and is far more beneficial for both mother and baby. Even if special circumstances arise, hypnobirthing allows you to stay positive, calmer and more in control. Mothers can recover easily and fast after drug-free childbirth.

Between the 20th (after your 20-week scan) and 30th week of your pregnancy you can start the 4-week course. We will still be able to fit you in a class if you are later than 30 weeks, so please always get in touch with us. 

Yes, of course. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are most effective when there is sufficient practice, as these are an acquired skill. The 4-week course allows you and your birth partner to feel ready, fully relaxed and confident as you approach your birthing day.

For anyone who wants to feel more prepared and confident about birth, hypnobirthing is the right choice. First-time mums who lack prior experience of childbirth, mothers who wish to an alternative approach for their second or subsequent pregnancies, and mothers who want to have a vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC) find hypnobirthing very helpful. You can use hypnobirthing techniques for home, hospital or birth centre births.

Hypnosis is just entering a state of relaxation. During hypnosis, you are still fully aware of your surroundings, and you can even chat normally if necessary. Everyone can learn and master self-hypnosis during this course. It is simple and easy to learn. 

Your baby will enjoy the same calm sensations in your womb whenever you become relaxed and calm as the body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, are released when the body is in a calm state during childbirth. So hypnobirthing is helpful for your baby. 

You will ideally need a minimum upload speed of 2Mbps for the live online classes. To check your upload speed run a simple test from your computer by using this link http://www.speedtest.net.

CDs and MP3s available in the market aren’t as useful and effective. You will learn very important techniques for birth from my courses and develop a deep understanding and skills necessary for success.
