Introduction

Hello and welcome to Together Birthing. My name is Emma, and I would like to congratulate you on the amazing journey of pregnancy. Together Birthing offers live online hypnobirthing classes to soon-to-be mothers, to make you fully prepared for your birthing day. Our services are now available to you through Hypnobirthing Brighton.
Here is a little about myself. I am a qualified hypnobirthing practitioner and hypnobirthing mum, having done my training at the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014, and then with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy (by Jenny Mullan) in 2016.

The course that I now teach is accredited by The Royal College of Midwives and The Human Givens Institute. I came across hypnobirthing in 2013 during my second pregnancy after a difficult birth first time round. I attended the course, and the effects of it on my birth experience were phenomenal. Following my experience, I felt compelled to share my knowledge with other women, so that they too could enjoy the incredible benefits of hypnobirthing. To date, I am privileged to have worked with hundreds of mums-to-be and their birth partners across the UK.

The Benefits of Hypnobirthing

After taking the hypnobirthing classes in Brighton, here are some of the benefits you should expect:

  • Research has shown that hypnobirthing mothers have lower chances of undergoing emergency caesarean sections. It further states that you should expect your labour time to reduce by up to 3 hours.
  • All your fears and anxieties about birth are released.
  • Hypnobirthing gives you the best chance of a drug-free birth. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation help you manage the surges better, significantly reducing the need for pain relief.
  • Your birth partner is involved the entire time with an important role to play.
  • Gain all the tools needed to handle special circumstances, feeling empowered to speak out and ask questions. You can stay calm and make informed decisions should you be required to do so.
  • You will feel more in control of your body during labour using the breathing, visualisation and deepening techniques.

FAQs

To get a better understanding of what Hypnobirthing is, how it can help you, and how it works, please click on the ‘What is Hypnobirthing’  tab on our website.

It is possible to have a completely pain-free labour with hypnobirthing, however every woman is different and this cannot be guaranteed. According to the Hypnobirthing Institute, 65%-70% of hypnobirthing women do not require any form of pain relief. There may be situations where medical intervention is necessary, but the techniques that you learn from the online hypnobirthing classes still help you stay calm and relaxed. Of the women I researched who took my course, 69% of them did not need any form of pain relief either. You can read their individual birth stories on my blog.

Anything you ingest will be passed on to your baby. Mothers who have a drug-free birth often report faster and easier recovery periods and studies show that babies are more alert and find feeding easier. Also, you are free to move around and get into different birth positions if you do not have an epidural. Epidurals can slow labour down and often lead to further medical intervention.

The recommended time to start the 4-week course is between the 20th and 30th week

of your pregnancy. We are also able to fit you in if you are later than 30 weeks so please do still get in touch.

The techniques and skills we teach during the course are acquired over time. You therefore need to practise regularly to perfect and execute them for maximum success. Regardless of what classes you take, I will be available on the phone or via email to help you along the way.

Any woman who wants to feel more prepared and confident about birth is eligible for the course. Hypnobirthing is easy to learn and can be used for a hospital, birth centre or home birth.

Hypnosis is a simple technique that anyone can do. It is easy to learn and is designed to help you achieve maximum relaxation. You are still able to function normally and react to all that is going on around you. 

Whatever you feel your baby feels as well. When in a relaxed state, your body releases endorphins that ease the body during childbirth. According to research, children born of natural childbirth are more alert and show more interest in breastfeeding behaviours.
