WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“Emma has a warm and intuitive teaching style. She guided me through my pregnancy and helped me overcome my birthing fears and have the most empowering and rewarding birthing experience. I actually enjoyed it. For that I am hugely thankful.”

“Emma’s HypnoBirthing course really did make the birth a million times better and much more pleasant and enjoyable experience even though I only started the course at 36 weeks. The course helped us to bond with our baby and gave my husband an integral role in the birthing experience. Even though special circumstances did arise, HypnoBirthing was an invaluable tool for keeping me and my baby calm and relaxed. Our baby had the best possible birth we could give him and is a very chilled little man.”

“The hypnobirthing techniques we learnt from Emma (via skype in Japan) for the birth of our second child really helped me to relax and enabled me to be present and aware for the whole birthing experience. Being calm and focused though the whole birth with the help of my birthing companion made it an amazing and special experience for all of us. The course is a whole lot more than just techniques. It completely changed my view of giving birth and empowered me and my husband to make the decisions and make the experience how we wanted it to be, not the medicalised norm.”

“I’m due to have a C-section so wasn’t sure if hypnobirthing would be for me, but I found out that it’s actually still helpful as a way to relax during pregnancy and to make it a more positive experience for me and my baby when it comes to the big day itself. Emma was a fantastic teacher and made me feel totally at ease. I feel like Emma’s given me confidence in myself and what I can do to make my experience as natural as possible – it’s been really worthwhile doing the classes, I feel so much more ready for my baby now.”
