Introduction

Hello and welcome to Together Birthing – offering live and interactive online courses that give birthing parents in Milton Keynes the knowledge, tools and techniques for a calmer, easier birthing experience. I’m Emma, a hypnobirthing mum and practitioner, highly passionate about what I teach!

The birth of my second son was such an incredible hypnobirthing experience that I felt inspired to help other parents-to-be experience the same.

My training was with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy with 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 either privately or in small groups.

My courses offer a valuable insight into pregnancy and giving birth calmly and positively, fully preparing you and your birth partner for your baby’s birth.

The nine months of pregnancy is a very special time for mums-to-be. It is a time of great physiological and emotional change. Unfortunately some changes mean the discomfort of backache, aching hips, sciatica, cramp, insomnia and swelling to name but a few. This is where massage can be of great comfort and alleviate some of the more uncomfortable effects of pregnancy.

FAQs

Read all about the process of Hypnobirthing and the numerous ways it benefits you on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

Hypnobirthing is an acquired skill so it’s most successful with practice. Pain free labour is possible with hypnobirthing. As a guide, the Hypnobirthing Institute found that 20%-25% of hypnobirthing mums require mild forms of relief, like gas and air, while 5%-10% need medical intervention. Others (65-70%) don’t require any relief at all. In fact, you can read about my hypnobirthing mums’ individual birth experiences on my blog.

Research shows that epidurals can increase birthing time and heighten the chances of external intervention procedures such as vacuum extraction or forceps. Drug-free births usually result in quick recovery times and enable freer movement during labour and birth which is beneficial. In addition to this, drugs are not passed on to your baby with a natural birth.

The best time to begin this course is between your 20th and 30th weeks of pregnancy. If you’re over 30 weeks, you should still get in touch, especially if you are up to 36 weeks, as I should be able to fit a course in for you.

Yes, since hypnobirthing is an acquired skill, the more you practise, the more effective the techniques will be. My 4-week course gives you and your birth partner enough time to perfect your hypnobirthing techniques.

Hypnobirthing is ideal for anyone who wishes to approach this journey more confidently. If this is your first birthing experience, hypnobirthing will help you dispel your nerves. If you’ve given birth before, hypnobirthing could benefit you in terms of experiencing a more relaxing positive birth, including a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean).

Hypnobirthing is an acquired skill and nothing more than allowing yourself to enter a state of deep relaxation. It is simple to learn and anyone can do it. The more you practise, however, the better your chances are of having a calm, drug-free experience. 

Yes, because hypnobirthing helps the body relax. When you’re in a calm state, your body releases endorphins. These are the body’s natural relaxants that are also found in the umbilical cord and the placenta. So, your baby feels the same calming sensations as you during hypnobirthing.

Yes, it would be cheaper but you won’t learn the practical skills that you need. My courses will equip you with important techniques necessary for birthing success.
