Hypnobirthing Northern Ireland - Teachers' Directory
Hi, and first of all congratulations if you are pregnant and welcome if you are simply intrigued. I am Emma and a busy mum to five children aged 7, 5, 4 ,2 and 9 months. Our house is definitely chaotic but full of fun and plenty of love.
I have experienced five very different pregnancies and births. I have had a water birth, a birth on an obstetric ward, others in the midwifery led home from home unit, some on time, some overdue and I have even had babies in different hospitals.
In the latter stages of my fifth pregnancy a midwife mentioned hypnobirthing to me. This was not something I had never considered as I always felt I was relatively calm during my previous labours. However I began to practice the techniques and over time felt more prepared for my impending birth. I wanted to be in the home from home midwifery led unit and preferred no interventions.
However as we know things don't always go to plan and due to medical reasons I ended up needing an induction. I can honestly say the birth that should have been the most painful and traumatic was the most calm beautiful birth I have experienced. Using my relaxation techniques I remained completely calm and comfortable, in my own little bubble. I allowed my body and mind to release all fears and quietly breathed my little boy into world. It was a very special experience that led me to train as a hypnobirthing teacher. Now I would feel privileged to help you on your journey to enjoy your own amazing pregnancy and birth xx
