Introduction

My name is Emma and I would like to welcome you to Together Birthing. I became a certified hypnobirthing practitioner at the end of 2014, after having the immense pleasure of giving birth to my second son using hypnobirthing techniques. It became my mission to help other parents-to-be also have a calmer, easier, more positive birth experience.

Hypnobirthing helps to release any fear or anxiety, so that couples can look forward to their birthing day.

My live interactive online hypnobirthing classes in York, help couples feel more confident and prepared. The different breathing, visualisation and deepening techniques help mums-to-be feel more in control of the surges.

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

FAQs

Find out more about what exactly is Hypnobirthing, how you can benefit from hypnobirthing and how it works on our ‘What is Hypnobirthing’ page.

A completely pain free labour is possible with hypnobirthing, however every mother is different. It should be noted that the techniques are more successful with practise. 


According to findings published by the Hypnobirthing Institute, around 65%-70% of hypnobirthing mums do not need any form of pain relief. A further 20%-25% only require something mild, like gas and air. The remaining 5%-10% usually experience ‘special circumstances’, where medical intervention is required. 


Over a 2 year period, 69% of women I taught did not need any form of pain relief during labour. In the rare events when a medical intervention was required, birthing mums said that the hypnobirthing classes still really helped them remain calm and positive. You can find out about individual birthing experiences on my blog.

Mothers who opt to give birth without an epidural deliver their babies faster, heal quicker and are able to regain movement within hours. During the birthing process, having full control over your body is extremely beneficial. It should also be noted that any drugs ingested by the mother can pass on to the baby.

The most optimal time to start the 4-week Hypnobirthing course in York is between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy. If you are past week 30, please do still get in touch as I should be able to fit you in, especially if you are up to 36 weeks.

Practising at home is of vital importance. Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are acquired skills and must be practised at home to gain as much experience as possible. During the four-week course, you and your birthing companion will learn how to fully prepare for the birth. Mums practice in between classes and after the course to ensure that they become confident and relaxed. 

Hypnobirthing is suitable for everyone. The goal is to make mum-to-be and their partners feel ready, confident and relaxed in order to have the most amazing birthing experience. 

Even if this is not your first pregnancy and you already have experience giving birth to a newborn, this course will help you gain an insight into a completely different approach to childbirth. 

 

Online hypnobirthing classes are also very beneficial for mums who have had c-section previously and wish to have a vaginal birth (VBAC) with this pregnancy. This course will help them relax and chase away any anxieties. 

 

 

Hypnobirthing course can be completed by mums who wish to have both home or hospital birth.

Yes. Hypnosis is just a state of mind when the brain stays aware, but relaxed. Self-hypnosis is an acquired skill which can be easily learned during the online hypnobirthing course in York.
