My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Emma to prepare for the birth of our first baby. Emma’s classes were both informative and relaxing and we both feel so prepared for a peaceful, natural birth at home, thanks to our HyponoBirthing practice. If you’re interested in HypnoBirthing, I would highly recommend working with Emma.
I couldn’t thank Emma enough for teaching me and my husband the art of Hypnobirthing. Even though I ended up being induced I still used the the Hypnobirthing method and had an incredible natural birth. I couldn’t recommend Emma enough, thank you!
Emma has a warm and intuitive teaching style. She guided me through my pregnancy and helped me overcome my birthing fears and have the most empowering and rewarding birthing experience. I actually enjoyed it. For that I am hugely thankful.
The environment was positive and welcoming. The hypnobirthing course was informative, educational and provided us with the tools to have at the birth. I feel more knowledgeable and confident and my partner is now more involved in the process. We feel excited for the birth
I just want to say a massive thank you, the hypnobirthing skills you taught us on the course were invaluable during the birth. It gave us so much confidence, the whole experience was calm, anxiety free and positive.
The course was really informative and I learnt so much about birth that I never knew. It was lovely to discuss concerns and other ideas for birth with other couples. I feel a lot calmer and positive about giving birth and more confident that I can handle whatever happens during our birthing experience. I have enjoyed the relaxations so much. I am glad I have plenty of them to listen to before our birthing day.
I did not have any type of pain relief at all and the sensations I had were completely bearable. Iain was also really great, he stayed in control and calm, did the soft touch massage and was generally very soothing. I put my amazing birth experience down to the hypnobirthing lessons and doing the relaxations and birthing affirmations (almost) daily, so thank you for teaching Iain and I the skills we needed to make that happen.
Just to say many thanks. Had it not been for hypnobirthing, I would have not survived! Our baby Eden was born 23rd December and using the hypnobirthing tools saved me! I got to full dilation within 3 hours of the first sign of labour and the breathing literally took the pain away like an anaesthetic would, I was surprised how powerful it was. I cannot emphasise enough the empowerment, confidence, vital knowledge and coping tools that I gained from hypnobirthing. I rarely recommend courses but this is a must for every woman. To be candid I would advise this course is taught to every mother-to-be as standard, simply to equip women with the physical, emotional/mental skills & techniques required to undergo the powerful experience of childbirth; and to access the inner strength required for such a feat!

There are many factors that can affect birth. In rare instances, medical intervention might be required for the safety of the mother and baby. For s successful hypnobirthing experience, mum and her birthing companion must prepare according to the course material.
According to findings 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, I researched mums that I had taught and found that 69% of women did not need any form of pain relief during labour. In the rare events when medical intervention was required, birthing mums said that the hypnobirthing classes 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 much more beneficial, especially if your baby is in a difficult position.
The most optimal time to start the 4-week hypnobirthing course in West London is between the 20th and 30th week of your pregnancy. If you are past week 30 weeks, please still get in touch and I will work around fitting you in. I have taught plenty of couples from 36 weeks.
Practising at home is important. 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. It will take some practice to learn how to trust your body, and become confident and relaxed.
Hypnobirthing is suitable for everyone. The goal is to make mum-to-be and her partner 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 get rid of the accumulated anxieties.
Hypnobirthing course can be completed by mums who wish to have both home or hospital birth.
Hypnosis is a state of mind when the brain stays aware, but relaxed. Self-hypnosis is an acquired skill and can be learned very easily during the online hypnobirthing course in West London.
Hypnosis is a state of mind when the person feels completely at ease, relaxed while fully aware of the situation. Self-hypnosis can be achieved by anyone, and it only requires some guidance about how to find that state within yourself. Self-hypnosis and relaxation is useful not only during birth but for everyday life as well.
Hypnobirthing is essentially a stress-free way of giving birth and is very beneficial for your baby, as well as for yourself. Your baby feels the same as you feel. Hypnobirthing offers relaxation and stress release which is beneficial for your baby in the womb. Endorphins are released during birth when the body of the mother is relaxed and she feels calm and happy. They are found in the placenta and umbilical cord directly connecting with the baby and according to research are better for breastfeeding behaviours in newborns.

CDs are good for relaxation, but the courses I teach my students are more practical, designed to help you learn all the techniques that you need to know in order to relax during birth and have an amazing birthing experience.
