Introduction

My name is Emma and I would like to welcome you to Together Birthing. As a certified hypnobirthing practitioner and hypnobirthing mum, I have immense pleasure in teaching expectant couples the wonders of hypnobirthing. I gave birth using hypnobirthing techniques myself, and found it the most empowering experience of my life.

It is now my mission to introduce hypnobirthing to other parents-to-be, as I truly believe every woman should benefit from birthing in this positive way.

During pregnancy, many couples feel insecure and somewhat afraid of birth. With my online hypnobirthing classes, I help mums-to-be and their partners prepare for a calmer, more comfortable birth, whilst remaining in control and fully aware throughout. I qualified at the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014, and underwent additional training with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan in 2016. The course that I now teach is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and comprises 4 x 2 hour weekly classes.

FAQs

Find out more about what exactly is Hypnobirthing, how you can benefit from hypnobirthing and how it works on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

For a successful hypnobirthing experience, mum and her birthing companion must prepare according to the course material.   According to findings published by the Hypnobirthing Institute, around 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mums do not need any form of pain relief. A further 20%-25% only require something mild, like gas and air. The remaining 5%-10% usually experience ‘special circumstances’, where medical intervention is required. 

 

In terms of my research, 69% of women I taught over a 2 year period, did not need any form of pain relief during labour. In the rare events when medical intervention was required, birthing mums said that the hypnobirthing classes still really helped them remain calm and positive. 

You can find out about individual birthing experiences on my blog.

Mothers who opt to give birth without an epidural give birth to their babies faster, heal quicker and are able to regain movement within hours. During the birthing process, having full control over your body is much more beneficial. In addition to this any drugs ingested can be passed on to the baby.

The most optimal time to start the 4-week Hypnobirthing course in Norwich is between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy. If you are past week 30 and still wish to join, please do still get in touch and I will try and fit a course in for you. I have taught plenty of couples at 36 weeks.

Practising at home is of vital importance. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are acquired skills and must be practised at home to gain as much experience as possible. 

 

During the four-week course, you and your birthing companion will learn how to fully prepare for the birth. It will take some practice to learn how to trust your body, and become confident and relaxed. 

Hypnobirthing is suitable for everyone. The goal is to make you and her partner feel ready, confident and relaxed in order to have the most amazing birthing experience. Even if this is not your first pregnancy and you already have experience giving birth to a newborn, this course will help you gain an insight into a completely different approach to childbirth. Online Hypnobirthing classes are also very beneficial for mums who have had C-section previously and wish to have a vaginal birth (VBAC) with this pregnancy. This course will help them relax and chase away the accumulated anxieties. Hypnobirthing course can be completed by mums who wish to have both home or hospital birth.

Self-hypnosis is an acquired skill and can be learned during the online hypnobirthing course in Norwich. Hypnosis is a state of mind when the person feels completely at ease, relaxed while fully aware. Self-hypnosis can be achieved by anyone and only requires some guidance to achieve the relaxed state.

Hypnobirthing is essentially a stress-free way of giving birth and can therefore only be beneficial for your baby, as well as for yourself. Your baby feels the same as you feel. Endorphins are released during birth when the body of the mother is relaxed and she feels calm and happy. They are found in the placenta and umbilical cord directly connecting with the baby and are responsible for better breastfeeding behaviour in newborns.

CDs are good for relaxation, but the courses I teach my students are designed to help you learn all the techniques you need to know in order to relax during birth and have an amazing birthing experience.
