HypnoBirthing classes in WatfordHypnobirthing in Chesham

Welcome to Together Birthing and congratulations on your pregnancy. If you are looking for hypnobirthing in Chesham, or hypnobirthing in Buckinghamshire, you have come to the right place! My name is Emma. I am a HypnoBirthing mum and HypnoBirthing practitioner, trained with the Hypnobirthing Insititute and more recently with Hypnobirthing by Jenny Mullan, accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. Having experienced hypnobirthing myself, I have a passion for sharing the marvel of hypnobirthing with other parents-to-be so that they too can experience a more positive, empowering birth. I teach hypnobirthing classes just 15 minutes drive from Chesham at my home studio in Potten End, near Berkhamsted (see location). The studio is situated in a tranquil garden setting next to the woods.

Hypnobirthing Classes

The hypnobirthing course that I teach uses simple but effective, scientifically proven, self-hypnosis, fear release, deep relaxation and breathing techniques, that anyone can do and which can make a huge difference to the birthing experience. You will also learn how the body functions during birth, exercises and nutrition to help prepare you for birth, the birthing environment and the birth companion’s role.

The group 4-week and 2-day hypnobirthing classes (see location) that I teach are small and friendly and fully prepare you and your birth partner for a calmer, more gentle labour and birth. They are an ideal way to meet other like-minded parents-to-be in a relaxed and friendly environment, with a maximum of four couples per class. The course consists of four 2.5 hour evening classes or two day classes (10 am – 4 pm) which take place at the weekend.

Alternatively, I teach private hypnobirthing classes at times convenient for you (see location).

Finally, I also offer 2 hour refresher/revision classes at my home 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.

The hypnobirthing classes that I teach, enable you to come together to learn about birth in a positive way and build in confidence for your baby’s birth.

Birth Choices in Chesham

You might decide to have a home birth for privacy and peaceful surroundings, which can really help with relaxation. Often couples find that HypnoBirthing gives them the confidence to opt for a home birth. Alternatively, Chesham is a 23 minute drive away from Stoke Mandeville hospital in Aylesbury. There is a birth centre within the hospital which is worth visiting if you prefer a setting more conducive to natural birth, which is attached to the hospital and run entirely by midwives. The other option is the stand alone Wycombe Birth Centre which is a home from home setting, less clinical than the hospital environment and run entirely by midwives.
