Introduction

Welcome to Together Birthing. I do hope that you’re having a great pregnancy experience so far. My name is Emma and I’m a hypnobirthing mum and practitioner with a great passion for my teaching. I teach live online hypnobirthing courses for mums-to-be and their partners in Swansea.

I did my training with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan in 2016, who's course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.

My online interactive hypnobirthing classes consist of 4 x 2 hour weekly classes and provide a comprehensive childbirth education programme to help prepare you and your partner for your baby’s birth.

As a hypnobirthing mum myself, I know first-hand the huge difference hypnobirthing techniques can make to childbirth, and I love to share the wonders of hypnobirthing with parents-to-be so that they too can experience an easier, calmer birth.

FAQs

As an acquired skill, hypnobirthing relies on the level of practice put into what has been learned.

A pain-free labour is possible with hypnobirthing, however every mum is different. The Hypnobirthing Institute found that around 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mums don’t need pain relief. Similarly, 69% of my students over a 2 year period didn’t need pain relief during labour. Furthermore, the Institute found that 20%-25% only require mild aids such as gas and air, and only 5%-10% experience ‘special circumstances’, and require medical intervention. My hypnobirthing students who experienced special circumstances said that hypnobirthing was still of great help. Read more about individual birth experiences on my blog.

Mothers who birth naturally walk and change positions easily throughout labour. Mothers typically give birth faster and easier when they are connected with their birthing bodies. According to research, using epidurals prolongs labour and raises the likelihoods of further interventions. Parents should note that drugs ingested by the mother can also affect the baby. A drug-free birthing experience is more helpful to both mother and child. However, in cases where medical intervention was necessary, mothers can still benefit from the tools and techniques learned through hypnobirthing to stay positive, calm and in control.

The period between the 20th and 30th pregnancy week is the best time to begin. However, if you are over 30 weeks, please do still get in touch especially if you are up to 36 weeks, as I should be able to still fit you in.

Yes, you do. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are usually most effective when learnt with adequate practice time in-between classes for absolute success. This will help fully prepare you and your birth partner as you await your birthing day. 

Hypnobirthing is for everyone wanting to feel prepared and more confident about birth. That could include first-time mums, mums on a subsequent pregnancy, or mothers who intend to have a vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC). This technique is useful for home, hospital, or birth centre births.

Self-hypnosis works for anyone. It is just about entering a state of relaxation. You are still aware of your surrounding environment and can chat normally if needs be. Self-hypnosis can be learnt and improved throughout your course, and the period after your course. 

 

Hypnobirthing is not just about learning self-hypnosis. It is actually an entire philosophy and approach to pregnancy and childbirth. Self-hypnosis is also helpful for relaxation after childbirth.

Hypnobirthing is very good for babies. Your baby feels what you feel, which means every time you become relaxed and calm, your baby will enjoy the same calm sensation.  During childbirth, endorphins can only be released when your body is in a calm state, which then helps your baby to relax and comfortably adapt to life after the womb. Research shows that babies born naturally are more active and interested in breastfeeding behaviours.

Live online classes ideally require a minimum upload speed of 2Mbps. You can run a test on your PC to check your upload speed with this tool http://www.speedtest.net.http://www.speedtest.net.

The CDs and MP3s on the market are usually only useful for relaxation during pregnancy and are not as effective during childbirth, compared with doing an actual course. The interactive online courses that I teach help you learn important techniques for birth and give you a good understanding of the skills necessary for a successful birth.
