Interactive and friendly online group classes where you can come together with like-minded couples to fully prepare for a positive birth experience.
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!

Want to know what exactly Hypnobirthing is, how it can help you, and how it works? You can read all about it here.
The pain during labour depends on lots of factors, as the woman’s body goes through extreme changes when giving birth to a child. Sometimes medical intervention is required to protect mother and baby from serious harm.
Hypnobirthing can certainly help to reduce the pain. It is basically an acquired skill and its efficiency depends on establishing a practice. In a study, the Hypnobirthing Institute found that:
Those who faced special circumstances revealed that Hypnobirthing helped them even when they needed medical intervention. You can read real-life stories of some of these Hypnobirthing students on my blog.
The primary goal of Hypnobirthing is to teach couples how to make the birthing process smooth and stress-free, irrespective of circumstances. Hypnobirthing will help you stay relaxed in all sorts of situations and will help you to ask the right questions, which is essential to make informed decisions.
If a mother gives birth without epidural then she can move freely during labour. Epidural is a local anesthetic for the lower back and it prevents the mother from feeling any pain during labour and birth but without an epidural mother can walk, change position and stay connected to the lower body which is essential for breathing baby down easily and quickly. Epidural increases birthing time and may lead to other interventions like vacuum extractor and forceps. Drug-free childbirth leads to quick recovery. SOmetimes pain relief medicines become essential but couples should know their effects on mother and baby.
Hypnobirthing helps mothers to experience drug-free birth which is far more better and beneficial than drugged birthing. As per WHO 10% mothers need genuine medical intervention during labour and birth. Hypnobirthing also helps these mothers to stay calm and relaxed in all kinds of circumstances.
The best time for this course is between 20th (after your 20-week scan) and the 30th week of your pregnancy. If you are later than 30 weeks, you can still book a place for the course as long as you remain in touch with the course. You can also look for a monthly one-day intensive course in Norfolk.
Definitely. Yes. Deep relaxation and self-hypnosis will result if you practice regularly. You should try to make it a weekly practice to obtain maximum success. The time frame of the 4-week course prepares you and your birth partner to remain relaxed and confident as you approach the birthing day. The good thing about the one-day intensive hypnobirthing course is that it is done a few weeks before your due date, giving you ample time to practice key skills from the course. I will be available on the phone and email to answer any of your queries regarding the course.
Anyone who wants to feel confident and prepared for birth can try Hypnobirthing. Many of our students are first-time mums with no previous experience of childbirth and are looking to calm their nerves. There are also mothers who are in their second pregnancy, who want an alternative approach for childbirth because Mum may want to have a positive experience during the second childbirth. Hypnobirthing can be suited for mothers who want to have a vaginal birth after Caesarean (VBAC). It can help to release fears about having a vaginal birth. The hypnobirthing techniques are suitable for hospitals and birth centers, as well as home births.
Hypnosis is not about losing control of your body and becoming unaware of your surroundings. Hypnosis is just about relaxing the mind and entering a special mental state to release stress. It is an acquired skill and you can master it with practice, and we will help you to improve this skill through our courses.
The Hypnobirthing course is much more than self-hypnosis; it involves a whole philosophy and approach for childbirth and pregnancy. The technique can be used for stress relaxation after birth for new mums.
Hypnobirthing is beneficial for the baby. Your baby has the same feeling which you feel. When you are calm and relaxed, the baby would enjoy the same sensation in your womb. The body releases Endorphins, a natural relaxant, when it is in a calm state and goes in the placenta and umbilical cord. This may serve a purpose to adjust the baby to the outside life. It can also comfort the birth journey. Research has shown that babies of those mothers who have had natural childbirth are more alert and show more liking in breastfeeding behaviors like sucking and massaging the mother’s breasts.
Ideally for live online classes, you need a minimum upload and download speed of 2Mbps. You can run a test on your computer using the speed test tool
You will find CDs and MP3 on the market for the course but they would not be effective during childbirth. The course that I teach includes skills and lessons which can be very important for childbirth and would provide an understanding of the skills required for success. I ensure that important learning is provided to moms which can provide relaxation during pregnancy and childbirth phase. My course is useful for all of the audience and it is better than CDs and Mp3 present in the market.
