Introduction

Welcome to Together Birthing. I’m Emma, and I'm both a hypnobirthing mum and hypnobirthing practitioner with a passion for what I teach. I trained with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and The Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan, in 2016. The course that I teach is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and comprises 4 x 2 hour weekly classes.

The live online hypnobirthing classes that I teach, provide a complete childbirth education programme for couples, to fully prepare them for the birth of their babies. They also include a course companion book and 9 relaxation downloads. I love to share the wonders of hypnobirthing with couples in Manchester, to help them experience an easier, stress-free birth, just like I did.

FAQs

You can read more about the details of Hypnobirthing, such as how it can help you and how it works on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

Hypnobirthing is an acquired skill, and its success depends on how much you practise during the course. The Hypnobirthing Institute found that 65-70% of hypnobirthing mums needed no form of pain relief, and 69% of my students during a 2 year period did not need any pain relief during labour. A further 20-25% only required gas and air, while 5-10% experienced ‘special circumstances’, and required medical intervention. 

 

Even in cases of ‘special circumstances’, my hypnobirthing students still confirmed that the hypnobirthing course was of great help. You can read about more individual birth-story experiences on my blog.

When mothers give birth without epidurals, they can move more freely. Epidurals can prolong labour and increase the chances of needing further interventions. When mothers take drugs during pregnancy, babies can also be affected. Drug-free birthing is much faster, easier, and much more beneficial to both mother and child. Mother and child usually have a calmer experience, and the mothers recover faster and tend to be more in control when they birth without epidurals.

We usually advise that couples start the course between the 20th and 30th week of pregnancy. For those already later than 30 weeks, we can still fit the course in for you up to 36 weeks.

Of course. Self-hypnosis is a skill most effective when learned and practiced regularly. With adequate practice, you and your birth companion will be thoroughly prepared, relaxed, and confident on the day of delivery.

Hypnobirthing is for mothers interested in getting more prepared and confident about their birth experiences – whether first-time mothers or mothers in their second or subsequent pregnancies. It is also useful for mothers who want to experience a vaginal birth after having a Caesarean. Hypnobirthing is suitable for home, hospital, and birth-centre births.

Hypnobirthing is easy to learn and can work for any mother. Basically, it’s about getting into a state of relaxation. As an acquired skill, self-hypnosis can be learned and improved upon throughout the duration of your course. 

Just as hypnobirthing is beneficial to the mother, it is also useful for babies too. Since your baby feels what you feel, your baby will remain calm in your womb when you are also calm. The endorphins that are released when the mother is in a calm state during labour, is also found in the placenta and umbilical cord of the baby after delivery. This helps the baby adjust outside the womb. According to research, mothers who experienced natural birth, had children who were more active and more interested in breastfeeding behaviours like sucking and massaging the breast.

For the live online classes, it is advisable to have a minimum upload speed of 2Mbps. You can run a test on your computer to check your upload speed with this tool http://www.speedtest.net.

Although CDs and MP3s on the market are useful for relaxation during pregnancy, they are not nearly as effective during childbirth as actually doing a hypnobirthing course. The course that I teach ensures you learn very important skills for a successful birth.
