Introduction

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I’m Emma, a hypnobirthing practitioner and hypnobirthing mum and I welcome you to Together Birthing. My live online hypnobirthing classes in Northampton are for expectant couples to learn all the techniques that they need for birth, and I am very passionate about what I teach.

I have received training from the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and the Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan in 2016, who’s course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. Since then I have been privileged enough to teach hundreds of parents-to-be.

Through my online live, interactive hypnobirthing courses, I provide a complete childbirth education programme to educate you and your birth partner in preparation for your baby’s birth.

As a hypnobirthing mum myself, I know what a huge difference hypnobirthing techniques can make to the birth experience. I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you so that you too can enjoy the benefits of hypnobirthing and have an easier and calmer birth.

FAQs

Learn what hypnobirthing is, how it works and how it can help you on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

The more you practise hypnobirthing, the greater results. A completely pain-free labour and birth experience is possible for some women, however, you do need to practise hypnobirthing because it is an acquired skill. Hypnobirthing can still help you enormously, even if you are induced, or end up with a caesarean. Hypnobirthing allows a more positive birthing experience regardless of the circumstances as it helps you to stay calm and in control.

It has been proved by many studies that epidurals increase the birthing time and the chances of other interventions such as forceps and vacuum extraction. Sometimes the use of pain-relieving drugs is unavoidable if special circumstacnes arise, but parents should be aware that drugs ingested by mother will affect the baby as well. The recovery of a mother after drug-free childbirth is faster and easier. Hypnobirthing helps mothers to stay calm, relaxed and positive during their labour and birth.

You can start online hypnobirthing classes anytime but the best time is between the 20th (after your 20-week scan) and 30th week of your pregnancy. Please still get in touch with us if you are later than 30 weeks as we should still be able to fit you in, especially up to 36 weeks.

Yes, you need to practice at home because deep relaxation and self-hypnosis are acquired skills and the more you practice the better it will be.

Anyone who wants to feel more prepared and confident about birth can opt for online hypnobirthing classes. This technique works for hospital, home or birth-centre births.

Yes, it will work for you and you can master it through practice. It is simple to learn. Hypnobirthing has much more to offer than just self-hypnosis. Hypnobirthing is a whole philosophy and approach to better pregnancy and childbirth. It will not only help you during birth but you can also benefit from it after birth to relax in times of stress.

Hypnobirthing is good for both mother and child because what mother feels will also be felt by the baby as well. According to the latest research, babies who have had a natural childbirth are more alert and show more interest in breastfeeding behaviours.

For the live online hypnobirthing classes check the upload speed of your computer with this tool http://www.speedtest.net. A minimum upload speed of 2Mbps is required for these online hypnobirthing classes.

It would be cheaper to buy and follow a CD but you will not get the first-hand experience and knowledge about relaxation techniques essential for labour and birth.
