Welcome to Together Birthing

Welcome to Together Birthing and congratulations to you and your partner on your pregnancy. I’m Emma, a hypnobirthing practitioner and I also have the first-hand experience as a hypnobirthing mum.

My online hypnobirthing courses for couples in Sheffield and other surrounding areas consist of 2 x 4 hour weekly classes. I completed my training from the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014, and from the Hypnobirthing Training Academy with Jenny Mullan in 2016.

The 4-week online course is a complete childbirth education programme for couples all over Sheffield, in order to fully prepare them for a more comfortable and confident birth experience.

As a hypnobirthing mum myself, I fully understand the power of hypnobirthing techniques for any birthing experience. I love sharing the marvel of hypnobirthing with other parents-to-be so that they too can experience an easier, calmer birth.

FAQs

Read more about Hypnobirthing, how it can help you, and how it works on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

Hypnobirthing is an acquired skill, the success of which is dependent on the level of practice put in during the course. Interestingly, The Hypnobirthing Institute discovered in a survey that 65-70% of hypnobirthing mums don’t need any form of pain relief. In the same light, 69% of women who I taught over a 2-year period, needed no pain relief either. The institute further said that 20-25% require something mild, while the remaining 5-10% usually experience ‘special circumstances’, where medical intervention is required. My hypnobirthing students who experienced special circumstances revealed that the hypnobirthing course was still of great help. Read more individual birth-story experiences on my blog.

Drug-free birthing is beneficial to both mother and child. Generally, mums who birth naturally can move freely,  and change positions easily throughout labour which is very helpful if the baby is in a difficult position for birth. Mothers can birth faster and easier when they are connected to their birthing bodies. Using epidurals, on the other hand, prolongs labour and increases the possibility of needing other interventions during delivery. Also, the drugs ingested by mothers affects the babies as well. The easiest way to achieve a drug-free birth experience is through hypnobirthing.

It’s best to begin the course between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy. If you are already later than 30 weeks, we should still be able to fit the course in for you, up to 36 weeks. 

Absolutely, yes. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are acquired skills, which are most effective when they have been learned with sufficient practice time between weekly classes for maximum success. The 4-week course enables you and your birth companion to feel fully prepared, relaxed, and confident as you approach your birthing day.

Hypnobirthing is for everyone aiming to feel more prepared and confident about their birth experience. Whether first-time mums with no prior childbirth experience,  mothers on their second or successive pregnancies, or mothers who wish to have a vaginal birth after a caesarean section. Hypnobirthing techniques are very useful for home births, hospital births, or birth-centre births.

Hypnobirthing can work for anyone interested in learning the skills and techniques involved. Basically, it involves the act of entering into a state of complete relaxation, where you are calm and in total control. You will be fully aware of your surroundings. Self-hypnosis is an easy-to-learn acquired skill and needs regular practice. It can be learned and improved throughout the periods during and after the hypnobirthing course. The relaxation techniques are also helpful to relieve stress in everyday life.

Just as it is beneficial for you, it is also very good for your baby. When you are calm and collected as a result of hypnobirthing techniques, your baby will definitely feel the same way. Endorphins are your body’s natural relaxant that are released when you are calm and relaxed during childbirth. Interestingly, the same is found in the placenta and umbilical cord. This helps your baby adjust to life outside the womb.

Ideally, you will need a minimum upload speed of 2Mbps for live online courses. You can run a test on your computer to check your upload speed with this tool http://www.speedtest.net.

CDs and MP3s are basically useful for relaxation during pregnancy but not really effective during childbirth when compared to actually doing a course. The courses that I teach helps you learn very important techniques and skills for a successful birth experience.
