Introduction

Congratulations on your pregnancy, and welcome to Together Birthing! I am Emma, and I’m a hypnobirthing mum, practitioner and a passionate teacher. My 4-week live interactive online hypnobirthing courses fully prepare couples in Worthing for their babies' birth.

I trained with the Hypnobirthing Institute in 2014 and with the Hypnobirthing Training Academy by Jenny Mullan in 2016. The course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and is a complete childbirth education programme.

From my personal experience of hypnobirthing with the birth of my second child, I know exactly how important hypnobirthing techniques are to a woman’s birthing experience. I love sharing these amazing techniques with other parents-to-be to enable them to experience a much easier, calmer, more positive birth.

The course comprises 4 x 2 hour weekly evening classes from 7 - 9 pm via Zoom. The course companion book is posted to you before the course starts and you will receive 9 relaxation downloads.

FAQs

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

The success of hypnobirthing depends largely on the amount of practice put in during the course. Pain-free labour is possible with hypobirthing for some mothers. As a guide, it was found that around 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mums didn’t need any form of pain relief supported by my own study which found that 69% of women I taught over a 2 year period didn’t need pain relief during labour. Furthermore, only 20%-25% needed mild assistance such as gas and air, while the remaining 5%-10% normally experienced ‘special circumstances’, and consequently required medical intervention. 

 

My hypnobirthing students who experienced special circumstances confirmed that hypnobirthing was of great help during inducement or caesarean. Read about individual birth-story experiences on my blog.

 

Mothers who deliver without epidurals usually move freely and change positions easily during labour. Mothers can birth the baby better and faster when they stay connected with their birthing bodies. Studies show that epidurals prolong labour time and increase the possibility of further interventions. Parents should note that any drugs taken in by mothers can also affect the baby.

 

Hypnobirthing provides the best opportunity for a natural birth and reduces the need for pain-relieving drugs. A drug-free birthing experience is more beneficial for both mother and child.

You start the 4-week course between your 20th and 30th week of pregnancy. For those later than 30 weeks, we should still be able to fit the course in for you up to 36 weeks.

Yes, you do. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are more effective when learnt with practice time between weekly classes for maximum success, to make you feel fully prepared, relaxed and confident as you reach your birthing day.

Hypnobirthing is for everyone interested in feeling prepared and confident about birth. They could be first-time mums, mums who are on their second or successive pregnancies, or those who want to experience vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC). The techniques are useful for home births, hospital or birth centre births.

Hypnobirthing is basically about entering a complete state of calm. You will be fully aware of your surroundings and chat normally when necessary. Self-hypnosis can be easily learnt and improved upon throughout the course. The hypnobirthing course involves more than just learning self-hypnosis, however. It is an entire philosophy and positive approach to childbirth and pregnancy. Furthermore, after birth, the relaxation techniques will be of great help to de-stress in daily life.

Hypnobirthing is great for your baby since the baby feels everything you feel in the womb, which includes relaxation and calmness. Endorphins are natural relaxants in your body, which are released during childbirth when your body is in a calm state. Endorphins are usually found in the placenta and umbilical cord. This could help the baby adjust to life after birth and also make things comfortable for the baby. Research shows that babies who were born naturally are more alert and active, showing more interest in breastfeeding behaviours.

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

The CDs and MP3s you will find in the market are useful for relaxation during pregnancy but not as effective during labour and childbirth compared to actually doing a course. My classes normally teach really important techniques for birth and an in-depth understanding of hypnobirthing and skills necessary for success.
