Introduction

Hey there, welcome to Together Birthing and a big congratulations to you on your pregnancy! I am Emma, a hypnobirthing mum and hypnobirthing practitioner, too. As a hypnobirthing mum, I’m extremely passionate about what I teach! The live online hypnobirthing courses consist of 4 x 2 hour weekly classes for couples in Leicester.

I undertook my training with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and also with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan in 2016. The course is

accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and consists of a thorough childbirth education programme to help prepare both you and your birth partner for your baby’s birth.

Being a hypnobirthing mum myself, I understand what a great difference hypnobirthing techniques can make to the entire birthing experience. I love to share the wonders of hypnobirthing with other couples to help them experience an easier, calmer birth.

FAQs

Read more about exactly what Hypnobirthing is, how it can help you and how it works on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

The success of hypnobirthing largely depends on the extent of practice put in during the course, since it is a skill that can be acquired. 

 

65-70% of hypnobirthing mums don’t need any pain relief, according to the Hypnobirthing Institute. About 69% of my students over a 2 year period, reported that they didn’t need any pain relief during labour. Also, the Institute declared that 20-25% only needed mild assistance such as gas and air, whilst 5-10% needed medical intervention. 

 

Even when my students needed any intervention, they nevertheless testified that hypnobirthing was a great help. Read my blog for more individual birthing experiences.

Mums are usually freer to move during labour when they birth without any anesthetics. This is especially important if the baby is in a difficult position. When mums feel connected to their body throughout labour, they birth much faster than if they had an epidural. There is also a higher chance of needing medical interventions when epidurals are involved – and drugs ingested into mothers can also affect babies.

It is advisable to begin the 4-week course between the 20th and 30th week of pregnancy. However, it is not too late even after 30 weeks. Plenty of couples that I have taught have been at 36 weeks.

Practising at home whilst on the course is important, as hypnobirthing is a skill that requires practice. 

Hypnobirthing is for anyone and everyone who wants to feel prepared and confident about birth. It is for those who are looking to feel properly informed about giving birth. First-time mums, or mothers in their second or successive pregnancies who are in need of new, positive birthing experiences. Hypnobirthing is also suited for mothers who intend to have a vaginal delivery after Caesarean. Whether the delivery is to take place at home, at the hospital or birth-centres, hypnobirthing has proven to be useful to all.

Absolutely! Hypnobirthing can work for anyone and is simple to learn. Hypnobirthing is aimed at helping mums to relax and be in control throughout labour. It is an acquired skill which gets better with practice. Apart from relaxing and being in control during birth, hypnobirthing also helps mums to relax after childbirth.

Most definitely. Your child feels every feeling you experience while still in the womb. This includes the feelings of relaxation. Endorphins that usually help mums to relax have also been seen in the baby’s placenta and umbilical cord. Infants born through hypnobirthing are said to adjust more easily after birth.

To participate in the live online class, you should use an internet speed of at least 2mbps. To test your upload speed, you can use http://www.speedtest.net.

You will find these helpful, but they are never as effective or extensive as doing an actual course. My courses will help you learn important techniques for birth.
