I cannot recommend hypnobirthing with Emma enough. This is my story, the course was brilliant, Emma made it so relaxed and really helped my husband and I understand the birthing process. By following the course I felt really prepared for the birth.
My waters broke at 4am, 4 days after my due date. I felt a few twinges but no surges for a few hours and I even managed to go back to sleep for a little while. My husband and I pottered around at home in the morning, using the relaxation techniques to make sure we stayed as calm as possible. As my waters had broken I needed to go into hospital to be assessed. The labour ward was really busy and we had to wait in the waiting room for 2 hours and then had to go on a ward. By this time my surges were really regular and I really wanted to be in the pool. My husband was amazing and kept me focused on my breathing and put my relaxation music on and played it through my head phones even when I was on the ward.
My birthing progressed quickly and I was moved to a room with a pool. My body knew exactly what to do, I really believe that because I was hypnobirthing I was relaxed and it just enabled my body to take over. When I was in the pool, I was being monitored and my baby's heartbeat kept dipping slightly so I had to get out and my midwife advised me to have an episiotomy. 2 minutes later my baby had arrived. The only pain relief I had was a local anaesthetic for the episiotomy, they offered me gas and air but I didn't need it. I had a healthy boy weighing 7lb 11oz who is now 11 weeks old and has remained a calm and relaxed baby. The birth wasn't ideal in some ways as I had to labour in the waiting room and then on a ward before I went to a room but I was still able to hypnobirth and have the birth I wanted. Emma was so supportive all the way through the course; she explained everything so well. If I was worried about anything she was very reassuring and was so encouraging about the process. I would definitely recommend hypnobirthing with her to anyone.
