Introduction

Welcome to Hypnobirthing Ipswich by Together Birthing, and congratulations on your pregnancy. My name is Emma, and I am a qualified hypnobirthing practitioner and hypnobirthing mum. I came across hypnobirthing during my second pregnancy, and it was the most incredible experience.

Having worked with hundreds of mums-to-be and their partners, since 2015, I now offer live online hypnobirthing classes to couples across Ipswich and its surrounding areas, so that they too can enjoy the benefits of a positive birth.

I trained at the Hypnobirthing Institute, with the original birth preparation programme, back in 2014. In 2016, I then trained with Jenny Mullan, teaching her hypnobirthing course that is accredited by The Royal College of Midwives and The Human Givens Institute.
The course comprises 4 x 2 hour weekly classes and is a complete childbirth preparation programme including essential techniques for a calmer, easier birth. A course companion book and 9 relaxation downloads are included with the course.

Birth choices in Ipswich

Some women choose a home birth because they like the familiarity and comfort of their home surroundings. Alternatively, couples may choose to give birth in a birth centre which has a ‘home from home’ feel with less medical equipment and an emphasis on natural birth. Sometimes you may be required to give birth in a labour ward due to your specific circumstances. Speak to your midwife for more information or take an interactive tour:

Hypnobirthing FAQs

Please visit the ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ tab on our Hypnobirthing Ipswich page for more on the subject.

To effectively enjoy the benefits of Hypnobirthing you will need to practice the techniques you learn to execute them successfully. According to the Hypnobirthing Institute, 65-70% of hypnobirthing women do not require any pain relief during childbirth. Please visit my blog to read first-hand experiences from mothers who have taken my class.

Studies show that an epidural not only prolongs your birthing time, it also increases the chances of other interventions such as vacuum extractions and forceps. Without an epidural, you can move freely and change your position during labour, which is vital if the baby is in a challenging birthing position. Hypnobirthing allows you better control of your body, making the process a lot smoother.

It is best to start the 4-week course between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy. Hypnobirthing classes in Ipswich are also available for you if you are later than 30 weeks. Please get in touch, and we should be able to find a course for you.

Yes. Deep relaxation and self-hypnosis are skills you acquire over time. The 4-week course we offer at Hypnobirthing Ipswich allows for sufficient practice time to master these skills. I am still available, even after the classes, to assist you.

Any woman who wants to feel better prepared and confident about birth. Whether, you are a first-time mum, or on your fifth pregnancy, the techniques you learn from online hypnobirthing classes are still applicable. 

Hypnosis is not what you see on television and movies. It is a state of relaxation. You are fully aware  of your surroundings. The more you practice, the easier it is for you to achieve this state. Self-hypnosis is not for the birthing process only. You can also use it to cope with any other stressful situations you will face in your everyday life.

When in deep relaxation, your body releases endorphins that calm your body. The same effect passes to your baby in the womb. In this state, your baby goes through the birthing journey much smoother. Studies show that naturally born babies show more interest in breastfeeding behaviours like sucking and cupping the mother’s breast, and are more alert.

Live online hypnobirthing classes require a minimum upload speed of 2Mbps. You can check your internet speed with this free tool http://www.speedtest.net.

They are not as effective as the course we offer at Hypnobirthing Ipswich. You will miss out on the essential techniques that are necessary for success.
