Introduction

My name is Emma and I would like to welcome you to Together Birthing. As a certified hypnobirthing practitioner, I have the immense pleasure of teaching live online hypnobirthing classes in Kent, and find it my mission to raise awareness of this positive way of birthing.
During pregnancy, many couples feel insecure and somewhat afraid of the potential medical interventions and levels of pain that many expect to have to deal with.

With my online hypnobirthing classes, I help mums-to-be and their partners prepare for a fear-free, calmer and easier labour and birth, whilst remaining completely in control and fully aware during the birthing process. My initial qualification was from the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014, before I underwent additional training in 2016 with The Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan, who's course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. I have had the privilege of teaching hundreds of couples over the past few years.

FAQs

Find out more about what exactly is hypnobirthing, how you can benefit from hypnobirthing and how it works on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

For a successful hypnobirthing experience, mum and her birthing companion must prepare according to the course material.   Pain-free labour is possible with hypnobirthing but cannot be guaranteed. According to findings published by the Hypnobirthing Institute, around 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mums do not need any form of pain relief. A further 20%-25% only require something mild, like gas and air. The remaining 5%-10% usually experience ‘special circumstances’, where medical intervention is required.

 

In terms of my own study over a 2 year period, 69% of women I taught did not need any form of pain relief during labour. For the rare events when medical intervention was required, birthing mums said that the hypnobirthing classes still really helped them remain calm and positive. You can find out about individual birthing experiences on my blog.

Mothers who opt to give birth without an epidural deliver their babies faster, heal quicker and are able to regain movement within hours. During the birthing process, having full control over your body is important, especially if the baby is in a difficult position. It is also known that any drugs you ingest will be passed on to your baby so a drug-free birth is better for your baby also.

The most optimal time to start the 4-week Hypnobirthing course in Kent is between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy. If you are past week 30, please still get in touch as there is still time.  I have taught plenty of couples from 36 weeks.

Practising at home is needed, yes. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are acquired skills and must be practised at home to gain as much experience as possible. During the four-week course, you and your birthing companion will learn how to fully prepare for the birth. It will take some practice to learn how to trust your body, and become confident and relaxed.

Hypnobirthing is suitable for everyone. The goal is to make mum-to-be and her partner feel ready, confident and relaxed in order to have the most amazing birthing experience. Even if this is not your first pregnancy and you already have experience giving birth to a newborn, this course will help you gain an insight into a completely different approach to childbirth. 

 

Online Hypnobirthing classes are also very beneficial for mums who have had C-section previously and wish to have a vaginal birth (VBAC) with this pregnancy. This course will help them relax and chase away the accumulated anxieties. Hypnobirthing course can be completed by mums who wish to have both home or hospital birth. 

Hypnosis is a state of mind when the person feels relaxed and completely at ease, whilst aware. Self-hypnosis is an acquired skill and can be learned during the online hypnobirthing course in Kent. Self-hypnosis can be achieved by anyone as its simple to learn and can be mastered easily.

 

It is useful not only during birth but also in every day life, to de-stress.

Hypnobirthing is essentially a stress-free way of giving birth and is very beneficial for your baby, just as well as for yourself. Your baby feels the same as you feel. The course offers relaxation and stress release which is beneficial for your baby in the womb.  Endorphins are released during birth when the body of the mother is relaxed and she feels calm and happy. They are found in the placenta and umbilical cord directly connecting with the baby and are responsible for better breastfeeding behaviour in newborns.

CDs are good for relaxation, but the courses I teach my students are designed to help you learn all the techniques you need to know in order to relax during birth and have an amazing birthing experience.
