Thank you Emily for your support and guidance during this course. The course has provided us with a lot of information and confidence for before/during and after the birth. This course also allowed us as a couple to spend quality and allocated time to focus on planning/preparing for the birth. My birth partner is a lot calmer since completing the course.
We are looking forward to using what we have learnt on the course and really excited for our next chapter as parents!

I left the session feeling really relaxed and it helped me during the labour as I was able to visualise my happy place that I thought about during the session. Emily has this natural ability to make you feel relaxed and confident approaching labour/birth.
Thank you for a lovely session!
Pregnancy relaxation session
For as long as I can remember I have had an inherent fear of child birth - not sure if it stemmed from horror stories I’ve heard over the years or the dramatic scenes you see in films/TV shows or a combination of both. When my husband & I found out we were expecting, we were both over the moon but it soon dawned on me that I was going to have to go through this process that I had been dreading.
I’d heard several friends talking positively about hypnobirthing so thought it would be worth investigating. As a scientist I was a bit sceptical at first but I quickly learned that the principles of hypnobirthing are evidence based and instantly things started to make sense.
Emily’s sessions were the perfect blend of structured teaching/learning and informal discussion with Emily and the other couple on our course - I genuinely never thought I could feel so relaxed discussing child birth! I’m sure the tips and techniques that we learned on the course will be invaluable going into Labour and I'm going into my third trimester feeling less anxious, more prepared and positive about what is to come.
Thank you so much Emily.

I feel more prepared having taken part in the course and hope that what I learned on the course will make me a better birth partner.
Emily is fantastic. We learnt so much and felt like no question was too small or stupid for us to ask. She explained everything really clearly and took time in-between sessions to send more information and answer any other queries. The classes went really fast and I am feeling much more confident and excited about the path to birth of my first child.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Helped me gained confidence in how to help relax my partner more. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone!
Taking the Hypnobirthing course with Em was a real revelation. Not only did it allow us to understand the science behind why things play out in a certain way during birth, but it also just meant that we were so much calmer and ready for the birth.
Em also has a great way of helping dads to understand their importance when the big day comes!
As first time parents to be we really didn’t know what to expect from labour and birth. After hearing numerous negative birthing stories from family and friends and unhelpful representations on tv or social media, we were both quite anxious about the whole process. A close friend recommended Hypnobirthing to me and after speaking with Emily we signed up for the course.
The course completely changed our perspective on labour and birth and gave me so much confidence in the decisions I made for the birth I wanted. We both learnt so much about the process of labour and what happens with the body and gave us the skills and techniques to apply to support me through each stage. It gave my birthing partner confidence in knowing what he could do to support throughout and how Much of an active role he could play. This definitely came into practice during the birth of our son!
Thanks to Emily and Hypnobirthing, I was able to have a successful and positive home birth.”
