I am the mother of two wonderful sons who were both born quickly and calmly in birth pools at home using hypnobirthing.

 I came to hypnobirthing on a parents course while pregnant with my first. I always knew I wanted a home birth and I was fairly confident about giving birth, but I had heard a few “horror” stories and so I wanted to ensure I full prepared myself so I knew what to expect.

Everything in the course made perfect sense and I loved taking the time out each day to relax knowing that it was going to help me achieve the calm, comfortable birth I wished for. And it worked!! 

The course also opened my eyes as to how society in general perceived birth and to how the ‘system’ worked in the maternity care services and I was saddened by the facts that women often feel nervous or even scared about labour/birth when it should be one of the most exciting times of a womans life and that some women do have a very negative experience of childbirth and this just didn’t sit well with me. We all know that birth can deviate from our “ideal” but whichever path a birth takes, whether it be completely natural, an induced labour, instrumental birth or even a C-section, it can still be and should be a very positive experience, where the woman feels in control, is given all of the information and options and is supported in all her decisions. These thoughts and feelings are what gave me the incentive to want to do more. To be able to inform and empower women and to help them achieve a birth experience that they will treasure for the rest of their lives is the reason why I love doing what I do and I am so privileged to be a part of their journey!


“I really enjoyed doing the hypnobirthing course with Emily. It made me realise that myself and my husband do have a voice and everything CAN go the way that we would like it. The hypnobirthing helped me get through 54 hour labour and I finally got the birth that I always wanted. Thank you Emily.” – Jade

“Hypnobirthing is amazing, I would highly recommend it to any pregnant woman (especially if you have any fears or concerns with labour). Emily is a lovely lady and a wonderful teacher. As soon as we met her, she put my partner and I at ease and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Through following Emily’s advice and teachings, I was able to achieve the calm and completely natural birth that I had dreamed of. I would certainly recommend Emily’s classes to anyone interested!” – Natasha

“Hi Emily, Just wanted you to know that our little girl arrived of her own accord and beautifully on Sunday. The midwife looking after me said it was one of the most relaxed births she had ever seen, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you so much for everything, I wouldn’t have enjoyed it half as much without the hypnobirthing. Love Jen x”

“Hi Emily! Lovely to hear from you. The birth was amazing, even quicker than last time! My waters broke in bed at 3.20am and I’d had him by 4.40am. Nearly didn’t get there in time and he was born on the floor in one of the delivery suites 😂 Couldn’t have wished for a better birth!! 😍😍xxx      At the time it was all just a blur but I realised afterwards just how much the hypnobirthing helped-especially as there was no time for any pain relief 😊We’d had some last minute panics about weight and growth so a c-section had actually been booked in for that same day, so it was amazing and such a relief that he decided to come on his own the night before! I’m just so happy with how it all turned out 😊😊xxxx” – Eloise

Due to current circumstances, all courses are completed virtually through Zoom.

I offer a range of Hypnobirthing courses during the week and weekend to suit your every need. The one to one and refresher sessions can be booked at times and days that suit you (depending on availability) which is great if you need a bit more flexibility. The group courses are wonderful for meeting other parents to be and will only ever be in small groups.  If you have any questions or would like to chat further then get in touch.
