Introduction

Together Birthing welcomes you and congratulates you on your pregnancy. I’m Emma. I’m a Hypnobirthing practitioner and a hypnobirthing mum myself. Teaching hypnobirthing is not only my job, but my passion. I trained at the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and also had the pleasure of being trained by one of the first hypnobirthing practitioners in the UK, Jenny Mullan, who’s course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. 

 

I am offering live online 4-week hypnobirthing courses for couples in Norfolk. The purpose is to educate couples about childbirth and hypnobirthing through interactive, online classes. These classes will prepare you and your partner for a calmer, easier birth. As a hypnobirthing mother myself, I know first-hand how this technique can make your birthing experience calm, empowering and fear-free.

Want to know what exactly Hypnobirthing is, how it can help you, and how it works? You can read all about it here.

Hypnobirthing can certainly help to reduce the pain and in some cases provides complete pain relief. It is basically an acquired skill and its efficiency depends on practice. In a study, the Hypnobirthing Institute found that:

  • 65 to 70% of hypnobirthing mothers don’t require any pain relief medicines. 
  • 20 to 25% of hypnobirthing mothers needed mild pain relief
  • 5 to 10% of them faced special circumstances and required medical intervention. 

Those who faced special circumstances revealed that hypnobirthing helped them even when they needed medical intervention. You can read real-life stories of some of my hypnobirthing students on my blog

If a mother gives birth without epidural then she can move freely during labour. Epidural is a local anesthetic for the lower back and it prevents the mother from feeling any pain during labour and birth but without an epidural mother can walk, change position and stay connected to the lower body which is essential for breathing baby down easily and quickly. Epidural increases birthing time and may lead to other interventions like vacuum extractor and forceps. Drug-free childbirth leads to quick recovery. SOmetimes pain relief medicines become essential but couples should know their effects on mother and baby.  

Hypnobirthing helps mothers to experience drug-free birth which is far more better and beneficial than drugged birthing. As per WHO 10% mothers need genuine medical intervention during labour and birth. Hypnobirthing also helps these mothers to stay calm and relaxed in all kinds of circumstances.

The best time for this course is between 20th (after your 20-week scan) and the 30th week of your pregnancy. If you are later than 30 weeks, you can still book a place on a course. 

Definitely. Yes. Deep relaxation and self-hypnosis will be effective if you practice regularly. The time frame of the 4-week course prepares you and your birth partner to remain relaxed and confident as you approach the birthing day. 

Anyone who wants to feel confident and prepared for birth can try hypnobirthing. Many of our students are first-time mums with no previous experience of childbirth. There are also mothers who are in their second or subsequent pregnancy, who want an alternative approach for childbirth because. Hypnobirthing can also be suited for mothers who want to have a vaginal birth after Caesarean (VBAC). It can help to release fears regarding having a vaginal birth. The hypnobirthing techniques are suitable for hospitals and birth centres, as well as home births.

Hypnosis is just about relaxing the mind and entering a calm state. It is an easy-to-learn acquired skill and can be mastered with practice. We will help you improve this skill through our courses. The Hypnobirthing course is much more than self-hypnosis; it involves a whole philosophy and approach for childbirth and pregnancy. 

Hypnobirthing is beneficial for the baby. Your baby has the same feelings that you feel. When you are calm and relaxed, the baby will enjoy the same sensation in your womb. The body releases endorphins, a natural relaxant, when it is in a calm state, and they will go in the placenta and umbilical cord. This then helps the baby to adjust to the outside world. It can also comfort the baby during the birth journey. Research has shown that babies of those mothers who have had natural childbirth are more alert and show more interest in breastfeeding behaviours like sucking and massaging the mother’s breasts.

You will find CDs and MP3 on the market for the course that are good for relaxing during pregnancy but they are not likely to be as effective during childbirth. The course that I teach includes all the necessary skills and lessons, which are essential for childbirth.
