Pregnant coupleHypnobirthing in Amersham

Welcome to Together Birthing and congratulations on your pregnancy. My name is Emma. If you are looking for hypnobirthing in Amersham, or hypnobirthing in Buckinghamshire, you have come to the right place! I am a Hypnobirthing Mum and Hypnobirthing Practitioner based 25 minutes from Amersham. I trained with the Hypnobirthing Institute and more recently with Hypnobirthing by Jenny Mullan, accredited with the Royal College of Midwives. Having experienced hypnobirthing myself, I love sharing hypnobirthing with other parents-to-be so that they too can have an empowering positive birthing experience.

Hypnobirthing Classes

I offer group 4-week and two-day hypnobirthing classes as well as private hypnobirthing classes about 25 mins drive from Amersham in my home studio in Potten End near Berkhamsted (see location). The studio is situated in a tranquil garden setting next to the woods. I teach the Hypnobirthing by Jenny Mullan course which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and consists of four 2.5 hour classes or two-day classes. The classes are small and friendly with a maximum of 4 couples per class and run in the evenings or at the weekend.

I also offer 2 hour refresher/revision classes from my home studio in Potten End (see location) for those who have done hypnobirthing before but need a refresher class. These classes are tailored to your specific needs based on your previous experience.

The hypnobirthing classes include a range of simple self-hypnosis, fear release, breathing and deep relaxation techniques as well as fear release hypnosis, to fully prepare you for a calmer, easier and more instinctive birthing experience.

Birth Choices in Amersham

The tools that you learn with Hypnobirthing can really help give you the confidence to have a home birth. If you prefer to (or are advised to for medical reasons) give birth in hospital, Amersham is located about 20 minutes drive from Stoke Mandeville hospital. In addition to the labour ward, there is a birth centre attached to the hospital which women can opt for if there are no special circumstances. There is also a stand alone birth centre in Wycombe which is more of a home from home environment and is not as busy as the hospital. You can contact the hospital and birth centre to book a tour.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a natural form of medicine which triggers the body’s system of healing. The remedies are aligned to specific symptoms.

You can also use homeopathic kits as an alternative to traditional pain relief during labour.

It works by looking at your body as a whole and helping to correct any imbalances. There are no Amatsu classes that take place in Amersham, however, two very good Amatsu therapists are located in nearby Chesham.

Acupuncture

We’ve all seen photographs of acupuncture and thought the process looks a little daunting! However, the procedure is relatively painless and the treatment can help chronic pains, stress or anxiety and nausea amongst other issues women face during pregnancy. The Orchard Clinic and Osteopathy Practice both offer acupuncture sessions.
