Introduction

Welcome to Together Birthing and congratulations on your pregnancy! 

My name is Emma; I am a hypnobirthing mother and hypnobirthing practitioner, offering live online hypnobirthing classes for couples in Southampton. I completed my training from the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and from the Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan in 2016. The course that I teach is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and comprises 4 x 2 hour classes.

I offer a comprehensive childbirth education programme that fully prepares you and your birth partner for the birth of your baby. As a mother myself who opted for hypnobirthing after a difficult first birth, I know just what a huge difference the hypnobirthing techniques can make to the whole birthing experience. Therefore, I teach hypnobirthing with a passion and love to help other parents-to-be have a calmer, easier birth experience.

FAQs

Get to know more about Hypnobirthing on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

As hypnobirthing is an acquired skill, its success depend on how much practice you do. According to the studies carried out by Hypnobirthing Institute, about 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mothers do not require any kind of pain relief at the time of giving birth. 69% of my students who I studied over a 2 year period, did not require any kind of pain relief during labour. The Hypnobirthing Institute states that 20%-25% of women need some form of relief, such as gas and air, and only the remaining 5%-10% of women require medical intervention. My hypnobirthing students told me that even though there were some special conditions involved in their birth, hypnobirthing still helped them a great deal. You can read my blog, where I have shared experiences of different Hypnobirthing mothers. 

Mothers who don’t need an epidural become more independent as they can move freely and do normal activities during labour, which is beneficial for them. Mothers can take better care of the baby and stay better connected with their birthing bodies. According to many mothers the recovery after a drug-free childbirth was quicker and relaxed. Researchers show that an epidural can extend the birthing time and can lead to other interventions, like vacuum

extraction and forceps. Even though at times it is essential to use medicines for pain relief, you should understand that any drugs that go in the mother’s body will also affect the unborn baby. 

 

 

With hypnobirthing, the need for pain relief drugs is highly reduced. A drug-free birthing experience is valuable for both mother and baby, however, even if medical intervention is required, mothers can still use the practices learned through hypnobirthing, which enables them to stay positive and relaxed.

It is best to start the 4-week course between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy. You can still contact us if you are later than 30 weeks, however, and we will find a course for you if you are up to 36 weeks. 

Yes. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are skills that need to be learned. For maximum success, you need to practise them between the weekly classes. 

Any woman who wants her birth to be more comfortable and calmer should opt for hypnobirthing. Hypnobirthing does not only help first-time mothers by calming and preparing them but it also helps those who are on their second or subsequent pregnancies by helping them to feel more positive about the whole experience. The techniques are suitable for both home births and hospital or birth-centre births.

Hypnosis helps you to relax. You are still completely aware of your surroundings and are very

much in the present. Self-hypnosis can be learned easily on the course.

Hypnobirthing is helpful for the baby as well. If you are relaxed and calm, your baby will also

be relaxed and calm. According to researchers, in the process of natural childbirth, babies are more alert and interested in breastfeeding behaviours.

For the live online classes, you will preferably require a minimum upload speed of 2Mbps. 

The CDs and MP3s available on the market are useful for relaxation during pregnancy; nonetheless they are not as effective at learning techniques needed for childbirth, compared with doing the course.
