Introduction

I’m Emma and welcome to Together Birthing! As a hypnobirthing mum and a qualified hypnobirthing practitioner, I am very passionate about hypnobirthing and the huge difference it can make to birth. I give live online hypnobirthing classes to couples in and around Chelmsford, having received my training from Jenny Mullan with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and the Hypnobirthing Training Academy in 2016. The course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.

I will completely prepare you and your birth partner for your baby’s birth with 4 x 2 hour weekly live online hypnobirthing classes, providing a complete childbirth education program. With first-hand knowledge about hypnobirthing as a hypnobirthing mum myself, and having taught hundreds of couples over the past few years, I know just how much hypnobirthing can influence the birthing experience. I would love to share my knowledge with you to experience an easier and calmer birth.

FAQs

You can learn about every aspect of hypnobirthing through our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

Birth is influenced by many factors and some of them are beyond our control. Any other form of pain relief is not needed for around 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mums, and something mild like gas and air is required by only 20%-25% women according to the Hypnobirthing Institute. I carried out a study on women that I taught for 2 years and found that 69% of them did not need any form of pain relief. Special circumstances where medical intervention is required are experienced by remaining 5%-10% women usually, according to the Hypnobirthing Institute. Even if they were induced, or ended up with a caesarean hypnobirthing still helped them enormously during the whole process. You can take insights from the individual birth-story experiences on my blog.

You can move freely, go to the bathroom, walk and change positions easily throughout labour if you give birth without an epidural. It is important, especially if the baby is in a difficult position for birth. By staying connected with their birthing bodies mothers can breathe the baby down better and faster. Some studies have shown that the birthing time and the chances of other interventions such as forceps and vacuum extraction are increased by an epidural. It should also be kept in mind that any drug ingested by the mother may affect the baby as well. There is a faster recovery in mothers after drug-free childbirth. Hypnobirthing reduces the need for pain relief and is the best opportunity for a drug-free birth.

You can start the 4-week online hypnobirthing class between the 20th (after your 20-week scan) and 30th week of your pregnancy. We can usually still fit the course in for you if you are later than 30 weeks so please do get in touch.

Hypnobirthing is best suited for those who want to feel more prepared and confident about birth. These hypnobirthing techniques are helpful for both home births and hospital or birth-centre births.

Yes, because hypnosis is about entering a state of relaxation and there is nothing strange about it. You will still be fully conscious of what is going on around you. You will be able to chat normally if necessary. Self-hypnosis is an acquired skill which can be improved with practice. 

Hypnobirthing is helpful for your baby as your baby feels exactly what you feel, so every time you become stress-free and calm, your baby will enjoy the same calmness in your womb, as the body’s natural relaxant endorphins are released. 

A minimum upload speed of 2Mbps is required for the live online classes. You can check the upload speed of your computer with http://www.speedtest.net tool.

For relaxation, during pregnancy, you can find many CDs and MP3s in the market but they are not as effective as an online hypnobirthing class. Very important techniques for staying calm during birth and labour are taught in my live online hypnobirthing classes.
