Introduction

Greetings to you and congratulations on your pregnancy. It gives me great joy to welcome you to Hypnobirthing Chester by Together Birthing. My name is Emma. I'm a qualified hypnobirthing practitioner and a mother of two.

For most expectant mothers, whether in their first, or subsequent pregnancies, there is often a certain anxiety when it comes to giving birth. I too experienced the same during my second pregnancy after a difficult experience first time round. All this changed when I took a course in hypnobirthing. The techniques and skills I acquired made an enormous

difference to my birthing experience. It is for this reason that I decided to share the joys of hypnobirthing with other mothers-to-be so that you too can enjoy the benefits.

I did my training at the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014. Thereafter, in 2016, I trained with Jenny Mullan and the Hypnobirthing Training Academy. I now offer online hypnobirthing classes to mothers across the UK, equipping them with the skills necessary for an easier and calmer birth. The course is accredited by The Royal College of Midwives and The Human Givens Institute.

FAQs

All the information is on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

Hypnobirthing allows you to be in more control during childbirth. You can stay calm and relaxed the entire time and yes, it is possible to have a pain free experience. From the women who took my online hypnobirthing classes in a two year period, 69% of them did not require any pain relief during labour. You can read their stories and experiences on my blog

Anything that you take directly affects your baby – that is why mothers are cautioned against certain medications and drugs. Hypnobirthing enables you to manage the pain and allows you better control in delivering your baby naturally. Mothers who deliver drug-free tend to recover much faster than those who undergo medical assistance during delivery. Studies have also shown that the use of epidural increases your delivery time and the chance of other interventions.

Online hypnobirthing classes are recommended between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy. If you are post 30 weeks, reach out to me and we can discuss what options are available. I have taught plenty of couples from 36 weeks!

Hypnobirthing involves acquired skills. Deep relaxation, breathing exercises all get better the more you practice. As your due date approaches, you will need to set aside some time each day to perfect your skills. You can reach me if you have any questions once you finish the course.

Any mum-to-be seeking a positive birthing experience can take the course. Whether it is your first pregnancy or your fifth, the techniques you learn at Hypnobirthing Chester are still applicable and are suitable for home, hospital or birth centre births.

Yes, it will. You are simply in a state of complete relaxation, but all your other senses are functioning. You can respond to questions and be completely aware of your environment. It is a very natural state which is easy to learn and can be likened to daydreaming or becoming absorbed in a good book or film.

You share a connection with your baby. Hypnobirthing allows you to relax during delivery, and the same feeling is passed on to your baby. When you are calm, your baby is too, as the endorphins (the body’s natural relaxant) are passed to your baby.

An internet speed of not less than 2 MBPS is ideal. You can test the speed of your connection using this free tool – http://www.speedtest.net.

CDs and books are good for practising relaxation, however you really need a proper instructor to take you through the course and ensure that you are performing all the techniques correctly.
