Happy pregnant woman doing exercise on the grassHypnobirthing in Aylesbury

Welcome to Together Birthing and congratulations on your pregnancy. If you are looking for hypnobirthing in Aylesbury or hypnobirthing in Buckinghamshire, you have come to the right place! My name is Emma. I am a Hypnobirthing Practitioner based in Potten End near Berkhamsted about 25 minutes drive from Ayelsbury in Buckinghamshire. As a HypnoBirthing mum myself, I have a passion for supporting other women and their partners during this special time, to fully prepare them for a calmer, easier, more enjoyable hypnobirthing experience.

Hypnobirthing Classes

I teach hypnobirthing classes from my home in Potten End, approximately 25 minutes drive from Aylesbury (see location). The group 4-week and 2-day hypnobirthing classes that I teach take place in the evenings or at the weekend. The group classes are small and friendly with a maximum of four couples per class and give you the chance to meet other couples and learn in a friendly and relaxed environment.

I also teach private hypnobirthing classes at times convenient for you and I offer 2 hour refresher/revision classes if you have done hypnobirthing before and would like a class tailored to your specific needs. I teach the classes from my home studio in Potten End (see location) which is situated in a peaceful garden setting next to the woods.

You will learn fear release techniques, deep relaxation and breathing techniques as well as how the body functions during birth and how to create the ideal birthing environment including the role of the birth companion. The course content is backed up by the latest scientific understanding.

Birth Choices in Aylesbury

HypnoBirthing often gives couples the confidence to opt for a home birth, attracted by the privacy and the peaceful environment, which helps make birthing easier. If you prefer to give birth at hospital, or are advised to for medical reasons, you don’t have far to travel to get to Stoke Mandeville hospital. The midwifery-led Ayslebury Birth Centre attached to the hospital is a popular choice for women without complications and offers an environment more conducive for natural childbirth. The other choice is the Wycombe Birth Centre, a stand alone midwifery led unit, located on the Wycombe Hospital site in High Wycombe. The centre is not as busy as Stoke Mandeville hospital and offers a more homely and quieter environment. Your birth partner can also stay overnight following the birth and visiting is not restricted like at hospital.

You can visit the Stoke Mandeville hospital and the Wycombe birth centre websites for more information and to book a tour, by clicking on the links below:
