Introduction

Firstly, congratulations on your pregnancy! If you are looking for hypnobirthing classes in Wendover, I offer live online 4-week private or group courses for couples in and around Wendover.

My name is Emma, and I’m a hypnobirthing mum and practitioner, having trained with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014. Following that, in 2016, I also trained with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan, who's course is accredited with the Royal College of Midwives.

I have a passion for sharing the joy of hypnobirthing, having experienced it first hand myself with the birth of my second son. Because I know just what a huge difference hypnobirthing can make to birth, I feel privileged to be able to help so many other parents-to-be have a positive and empowering birthing experience.

The course comprises 4 x 2 hour weekly evening classes via Zoom (7.00-9.00 pm) and includes a course companion book which is sent to you and 9 relaxation downloads.

FAQs

Learn all about hypnobirthing and the many ways in which it can benefit you by reading my ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

Hypnobirthing works best if you practise properly during and after the course. As a guide, the Hypnobirthing Institute has found that only 20%-25% of hypnobirthing mums require gas or air for pain-relief while 5%-10% fall under the ‘special circumstances’ case where the only option is medical interventions. Otherwise, hypnobirthing mums shouldn’t require any pain relief. You can read hypnobirthing stories on my blog here.

Research has shown that epidurals often complicate the process, increasing the probability of further interventions. Moreover, mothers can move freer during a drug-free labour and birth, and they recover faster. Also, drugs do not get passed on to the baby with a natural birth. 

Somewhere between your 20th and 30th weeks of pregnancy is an ideal time to join this course. If you’re later than that, you should still be able to join, certainly up to 36 weeks.

Yes, you should do as much practise as possible during and after the course. My 4-week hypnobirthing course in Wendover gives you an ideal amount of time for that. 

Hypnobirthing is for anyone wanting to experience a more relaxing and enjoyable birth. Specifically, first-time mums with no prior birthing experience can release their fears using hypnobirthing techniques. Even mothers who’ve given birth before could benefit from this process, such as first-time vaginal delivery. Hypnobirthing is suitable for home births or hospital or birth centre births.

Yes, with some practice, self-hypnosis is nothing but a relaxation technique. You can work on it throughout and after my 4-week course. It is simple to do and easy to master. 

Yes, it is beneficial for both the mum and baby. Hypnobirthing techniques keep you calm, enabling your body to release endorphins. These are your body’s natural relaxants that are also located in the placenta and the umbilical cord. So, your baby is simultaneously feeling the same calming sensations from inside the womb.

Yes, a minimum of 2Mbps upload speed is needed. You can test it here: http://www.speedtest.net.

Yes, that might be the case but you won’t learn nearly as much as you would with my live interactive classes. I’ll equip you with all the important techniques to have a successful birthing experience.
