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!
Hypnobirthing is a technique which helps prepare women emotionally, physically and mentally for pregnancy and birth.
KG Hypnobirthing is a complete, in-depth, antenatal and relaxation programme providing you with the tools and knowledge for a relaxed, empowered and informed birth, wherever and however that may be. It is logical, simple, practical…. and VERY EFFECTIVE!
It enables you to work with your body and gives you the confidence to trust that your body is completely capable of giving birth as that is what it is designed to do!
Hypnobirthing puts YOU in charge so your baby can be born calm and alert as nature intended, able to bond with you quickly and settle into healthy sleeping and feeding patterns.
Too often we have been programmed throughout our lives with a negative pre-conception of pain in childbirth from books, media, films and even the stories of the people around us. This proven method is all about dispelling these negative mis-conceptions, releasing any fear and changing the way you think and feel about birth into positivity and even excitement to give your baby the best possible start in life!
"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
