Hypnobirthing in Rickmansworth

man and a pregnant woman happy natureWelcome to Together Birthing and congratulations on your pregnancy. If you are looking for hypnobirthing in Rickmansworth or hypnobirthing in Hertfordshire, you have come to the right place! My name is Emma. I am a Hypnobirthing mum and Hypnobirhting practitioner, trained with the Hypnobirthing Institute and more recently with Hypnobirthing by Jenny Mullan, accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. Having experienced the joys of hypnobirthing first hand myself, I feel privileged to be able to share them with other parents-to-be.

Hypnobirthing Classes

I teach group 4-week and 2-day hypnobirthing classes from my home studio in Potten End, located approximately 20 minutes drive from Rickmansworth (see location). The evening hypnobirthing classes last 2.5 hours and the 2-day classes run from 10 am until 4 pm at the weekend. The classes are small and friendly, limited to four couples per session. As well as being a fantastic opportunity to learn about hypnobirthing, the classes provide a chance to get to know other couples and share your experiences of pregnancy, in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Alternatively, I offer private hypnobirthing classes at times that fit in with you.

Finally, I offer 2 hour refresher/revision classes from my home in Potten End (see location), if you have done hypnobirthing before but need a refresher class. These classes are tailored to your specific needs.
