Introduction

Welcome to Together Birthing and accept my best wishes for your pregnancy. Together Birthing is now offering live online hypnobirthing classes for couples in Devon, to help them have a more comfortable and relaxed birthing experience. My name is Emma and I teach 4-week (4 x 2 hours) live online hypnobirthing courses after getting extensive training from The Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and Jenny Mullan at the Hypnobirthing Training Academy in 2016.

The course that I teach is accredited by The Royal College of Midwives. Moreover, it is not just my job but my passion too as I have also used hypnobirthing with the birth of my second baby, therefore I have first-hand experience of the techniques and I know how much they can help pregnant ladies and the birthing process. The course is great for birth partners too, teaching them all they need to know about their supporting role.

FAQs

Hypnobirthing is about improving the birthing experience and you can read about it on our web page  ‘What is Hypnobirthing’.

Hypnobirthing is an acquired skill so is more successful with the help of practice. Normally hypnobirthing mums do not require any other kind of pain relief. The Hypnobirthing institute has found that 65%-70% mothers who practise hypnobirthing do not need any other pain relief. My own research of mums who took my course over a 2 year period showed that 69% of mums do not require pain relief during labour.  Furthermore, according to the Hypnobirthing Institute, 20%-25% of mums may require some mild relief like gas and air and only 5%-10% of them would experience special circumstances where medical intervention was necessary. In all cases, mums said that hypnobirthing helped them, even when there was medical intervention. You can read their experiences on my personal blog

A drug-free birth frees you from all the complexities caused by epidurals, such as not being able to move freely or having difficulties walking or changing positions. Epidurals often lead to further medical intervention such as vacuum extraction or forceps. Moreover, any drug used during birth can affect babies. Mothers go for a drug-free birth because of its many advantages, including the recovery time being faster.

 

 

Hypnobirthing is the perfect choice for mums because not only does it decrease the likelihood of using drugs but it also provides calmness and control, reducing the chance of any medical intervention. 

It is best to start the course before the end of your second trimester. You can start at any time between the 20th to 30th week of your pregnancy. If you cannot join the course before the 30th week, do not worry as I have taught plenty of couples after 30 weeks gestation, even up to 36 weeks.

Hypnobirthing is basically an acquired skill and is more effective with practice. Our 4-week online course provides a great opportunity to learn and practise all aspects of hypnobirthing but it is recommended to keep practising at home. 

Hypnobirthing is suitable for all pregnant women, whether it be the first pregnancy or a subsequent one. It is also suitable for women who want to try alternative techniques for birthing for instance if you wish for a vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC). Hypnobirthing works for all situations, if you want to give birth at home or in a birth centre or hospital.

Hypnosis is basically a technique to relax your body and mind whilst staying aware of your surroundings. You can acquire the skill of self-hypnosis with practise but it is easy to learn and simple to do. You can even talk to other people while in the state of hypnosis and you can come out of it at any time. It is a normal state which we often experience such as day dreaming or becoming absorbed in a good book or film. 

Yes, hypnobirthing is as good for your baby as it is for you. An unborn baby shares the same feelings as the mother, therefore it is important for the mother to stay relaxed. Endorphins are a natural relaxant and the mother’s body releases this hormone when she feels relaxed, which are passed on to the baby. This technique also helps mothers give birth naturally, and research has shown that naturally born babies are more active and find breastfeeding easier.

Yes, you must have a stable internet connection. The minimum upload and download speed of your internet should be 2Mbps so that you can enjoy online hypnobirthing classes uninterruptedly. You can check your internet speed on http://www.speedtest.net.

If you want to get information from CDs and MP3s, that is fine, but if you want to learn and practise a new skill quickly then a course with proper instruction is a much better idea. Our online hypnobirthing classes in Devon are very interactive in which I speak with participants to ensure that they understand everything.
