Introduction

Welcome to Hypnobirthing Edinburgh by Together Birthing, and congratulations on your pregnancy. My name is Emma, I am a hypnobirthing mum and a qualified hypnobirthing practitioner. I did my training at the Hypnobirthing Institute 2014 and then trained at the Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan in 2016. My course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.
I came across the hypnobirthing during my second pregnancy after a difficult experience first time round. The course

helped me let go of all my anxiety and fears, making the second birth an incredible experience.

That is why I now passionately teach online hypnobirthing courses for couples across the UK and beyond. To date, I feel privileged to have helped hundreds of couples experience the joys of hypnobirthing. Through online interactive hypnobirthing classes, I provide a complete childbirth education programme, to better prepare you and your birth partner for your baby’s birth.

FAQs

Please visit our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page for a full description.

A pain-free labour is possible with hypnobirthing but every mother’s birth is different, so it cannot be guaranteed. I can assure you, however, that hypnobirthig will help no matter what the circumstances. Approx. 70% of the mothers that I taught over a 2 year period, did not need any form of pain relief during labour. According to the Hypnobirthing Institute, 20-25% need gas and air and 10% experience special circumstances. Mothers that did need medical intervention due to special circumstances, still said that hypnobirthing was really helpful during the birth. Read some birth stories on my blog

Mothers who give birth drug-free recover much faster and easier. Attending online hypnobirthing classes in Edinburgh equips you with the techniques to reduce your reliance on pain relieving drugs. Studies show that epidurals can prolong labour and often lead to further intervention. Also, drugs can be passed on to your baby. 

You can enrol for the hypnobirthing classes in Edinburgh between your 20th and 30th week of pregnancy, however later than this is also fine. Please get in touch with us for more details.

As with any skill, self-hypnosis and deep relaxation require practice. The 4-week course gives you enough time to hone your skills to get you ready for your birthing day. The more practice you put in the better the results you should expect. 

Whether it is the hospital, home or at a birthing centre, hypnobirthing techniques are still suitable. The techniques aim to make you feel more at ease by building your confidence and managing your anxiety. Most of the mothers that I work with are first-time mothers who have no prior experience of childbirth. However, those with subsequent pregnancies looking for a better experience and those wishing to have a vaginal birth after caesarean also take the course. 

Hypnosis is not as it is depicted on television. It is simply a state of relaxation which is easy to do. As you progress through the course, self-hypnosis can be easily mastered. 

Your baby benefits greatly from hypnobirthing. When you are relaxed, the same effect is felt by your baby. The womb is more relaxed, making it easier for your baby to manoeuvre out into the world. Scientific studies have shown that endorphins, hormones that calm the body, are present in the placenta and umbilical cord after delivery. Similarly, naturally delivered babies are more responsive to breastfeeding behaviours.

An internet speed of 2Mbps is sufficient for online classes. Use this link to see how fast your internet is http://www.speedtest.net.

CDs and MP3s do offer a cheaper option, but you will not sufficiently prepare you for the big day. An online hypnobirthing course is your best way to learn the techniques that you need.
