Introduction

Hi, and welcome to Together Birthing. I offer live online 4-week hypnobirthing courses in the Dorset area. I’m Emma, a hypnobirthing mum and qualified practitioner – congratulations on your pregnancy! As mothers-to-be, we often face a lot of anxiety and fear associated with childbirth. I too went through the same, but thanks to hypnobirthing, I was able to release the fear and have a calm and confident birthing experience, with the birth of my second son. The preparation, tools and techniques that I learnt made a significant difference in how easy and smooth the process was.

I trained in the Mongan Method with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and then with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy in 2016. I teach the Hypnobirthing by Jenny Mullan course to women all across the UK. The course is accredited by both the Royal College of Midwives and the Human Givens Institute.

Hypnobirthing classes in Dorset are online interactive sessions that will provide you with a complete childbirth education programme, including invaluable techniques, to fully prepare you and your birth partner for your baby’s birth.

FAQs

To know more about what hypnobirthing is, how it helps and how it works, visit the ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ tab on the website.

70% of hypnobirthing mothers do not need any form of pain relief during childbirth, according to statistics by the Hypnobirthing Institute. This is in line with my own research over a 2 year period which showed that 69% did not need pain relief during labour. There are still those who experience special circumstances, about 5%-10%, who also report that hypnobirthing techniques still really helped them through medical intervention. You can read some of the first-hand experiences of the women who have taken my class on my blog.

Birthing without an epidural allows you to move more freely, use the bathroom and walk around freely. You can also change positions easily during labour, should your baby be in a challenging birthing position. Hypnobirthing equips you with the tools and techniques to enable you to manage pain, and allows you to breathe the baby down easier. Studies show that the chances of other interventions such as forceps and vacuum extractions increase when using an epidural.

If you are between your 20th and 30th week, you are at the best time to start the 4-week course. Courses are still available for you if you are later than 30 weeks and I have taught plenty of couples at 36 weeks. Please get in touch for more details.

You acquire hypnobirthing skills and techniques over time. The more practice you do, the better the chances of success. I am still available to assist you even after the classes finish.

Any woman seeking to have a calmer and more pleasant birthing experience is eligible – first time mums or mums giving birth for the second or subsequent time. Home births, birthing centres or hospital births are all suitable.

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation which is easy to learn and master. You will still be in full capacity to react to any situations around you. The course is not only about learning self-hypnosis. You will learn the key concepts and a whole positive approach to pregnancy and childbirth.

As you go into deep relaxation, your brain releases endorphins that calm both you and your baby. These endorphins are also present in the placenta and umbilical cord post-delivery. As the baby is born, the endorphins help them adjust better to life, outside the womb. Research shows that babies of mothers who had natural birth exhibit more interest in breastfeeding behaviours and are more alert.

We recommend a minimum upload speed of 2Mbps for the live online classes. You can check the upload speed of your connection by using this free tool http://www.speedtest.net.

CDs and MP3 are readily available. However, these only really cover the basics of relaxation. The courses that I teach, on the other hand, equip you with all the necessary techniques for success.
