Introduction

Welcome to Together Birthing, and congratulations on your pregnancy! My name is Emma, and I’m a hypnobirthing practitioner and mum. I absolutely love what I teach, helping couples, who live around Wolverhampton, have a calmer, easier birth experience.

My training was with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and also with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan in 2016, who’s course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.

My 4 x 2 hour weekly live online hypnobirthing courses are interactive and provide a complete childbirth education programme to help prepare you and your birth partner for your baby’s birth.

As a hypnobirthing mum myself, I know first-hand the huge benefits of hypnobirthing techniques for childbirth. I always love to share these amazing techniques with mum and dads-to-be, to help them experience a much more positive birthing day, one that they can actually enjoy.

FAQs

Learn more about what Hypnobirthing is, how it can be of help, and how it works on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

As an acquired skill, the success of hypnobirthing depends largely on how much practice you put in. A pain-free labour is possible with hypnobirthing. The Hypnobirthing Institute found that about 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mums need no form of pain relief. Similarly, 69% of my students over a 2 year period didn’t need any, either. The Institute also found that 20%-25% just needed mild help, like gas and air, while the remaining 5%-10% normally experience ‘special circumstances’, and would need medical intervention. My hypnobirthing students who experienced special circumstances confirmed that hypnobirthing was still very helpful even if they were induced, or needed a caesarean. Read about individual birth-story experiences on my blog.

Mothers who deliver without anaesthetics move freely, walk and easily change positions during labour which is beneficial for birth. Mothers can deliver faster as they stay connected with their birthing bodies. Research shows that epidurals prolong labour time and increases the chances of further interventions. Parents should note that drugs ingested by the mother also affect the baby.

Hypnobirthing provides the best opportunity for a drug-free birth which is much more beneficial for both mother and child. 

It is best to start the 4-week course between the 20th and 30th week of pregnancy. The course is also fine to start up to 36 weeks so please do still get in touch if you are more than 30 weeks.

Yes. As acquired skills, self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are more effective with practice in between classes. The 4-week course keeps you and your birth companion prepared, relaxed and confident. It is best to take the course at least 4 weeks before your due date to enable you to have enough time to practice.

Hypnobirthing is for those who desire to feel prepared and confident about birth. These could be first-time mums, mothers on subsequent births, or mothers who have never experienced vaginal birthing. Hypnobirthing is suitable for birthing at home, in the hospital, or any birth centre.

Basically, hypnosis is about going into a state of relaxation where you are quite aware of your surroundings and can communicate effectively if necessary. Self-hypnosis can be easily learnt and improved throughout the duration of your course.

However, the course is not just about learning self-hypnosis. It is actually a whole philosophy and pregnancy and childbirth approaches. The relaxation techniques learnt also helpful after childbirth to relax and release stress.

Hypnobirthing is also beneficial for your baby as they feel exactly what you feel which means you being calm will keep them calm even in your womb. Endorphins can only be released when the body is in a calm state, and are found in the placenta and umbilical cord. It can also help the baby comfortably adjust to life after birth. Research shows that babies born naturally are usually more alert and more interested in sucking and breastfeeding behaviours.

To participate effectively in live online classes you will need a minimum upload speed of 2Mbps. Check your upload speed or run a test on you PC with this tool http://www.speedtest.net.

CDs and MP3s on the market are only really useful for relaxation during pregnancy but not as effective during childbirth as doing an actual course. The courses that I teach help you learn very important techniques for birth and give you the understanding and skills necessary for success.
