I know what you've been told about giving birth.

For far too long, women have been told to 'expect the worst' when it comes to labour.


And I cannot tell you the amount of people I've met who feel really scared about their upcoming baby's birth as a result.


And it might be tempting to bury your head in the sand, cross your fingers & toes and pray for the best, but I know you want more from your birth.


I know you want a birth where you feel supported, in control, informed and listened to

And you're in the right place!

The Blooming Births Hypnobirthing course is everything you need.


Our 5* rated antenatal course is here to help you to ditch the fear once and for all, take hold of the reins and start feeling really confident for your birth.

Hey, I'm Emma!

Tea lover, mother of two and the founder of Blooming Births.

I know you're probably feeling nervous and apprehensive about giving birth - believe me, I totally get it.

For me, Hypnobirthing isn't about achieving the Instagram version of the "perfect hypnobirth".

It's about providing you with the knowledge you need about all of your options, alongside some really powerful techniques to help you stay calm and in control no matter what.

I truly believe that all birth has the power to be a positive and empowering experience.

Can I tell you the biggest birth secret?

Giving birth was never supposed to be like what you see on the TV.

It was meant to be a life affirming and transformational experience.

A positive birth will leave you with deeper feelings of empowerment, a trust in your body and the best start to your parenting journey.

But giving birth is a largely hormonal and emotional process. Expecting the worst is likely to result in a lot of fear and this can make giving birth more difficult.


Understanding this mind body connection is key and this is exactly why most standard antenatal courses just aren't enough.

  • When is the best time to do a Hypnobirthing course?
    There is no right or wrong time when it comes to deciding when to start a Hypnobirthing course. Most people choose to start a course between 16 and 34 weeks of pregnancy, as this gives them plenty of time to practice the tools and techniques, but other people choose start a course at 34+ weeks. It really is completely up to you when you choose to start your Hypnobirthing course.
  • How is a Hypnobirthing course different to an NCT course?
    Hypnobirthing and NCT courses are very different. NCT courses tend to be very traditional in their approach to antenatal education and are usually ran in large groups. NCT courses will focus a lot on information giving and will cover a wide range of topics from pregnancy right the way through to caring for a newborn. Hypnobirthing courses focus more on birth preparation and mindset work. It's important to consider which topics are being covered on both courses, what is most important to you and the pros vs cons of each. Every antenatal teacher will have a different style of teaching too. That being said, it doesn't necessarily have to be an 'either or' situation. Many of my clients choose to do both a Hypnobirthing and an NCT course.
  • Can I do Hypnobirthing if I'm planning to use medical forms of pain relief?
    Hypnobirthing can be used alongside any type of pain relief you choose during labour, including medical pain relief such as gas & air, and epidurals. A high quality Hypnobirthing course explore all of your pain relief options, including natural and medical choices so that you can make an informed decision about what is right for you. It is usually possible to combine a number of pain relief methods together alongside your Hypnobirthing techniques. Whilst evidence does suggest that those who use Hypnobirthing usually find birth less painful, the goal of Hypnobirthing is not to replace pain relief.
  • Can I do Hypnobirthing if I'm planning a c-section?
    Yes! The Hypnobirthing I teach is for all births, including c-sections. Hypnobirthing can help you to understand what to expect before you go in for your c-section and also give you the tools you need to feel calm about the experience. My private Hypnobirthing courses can be tailored for those who know they want a c-section from very early on in pregnancy so we can focus on making sure you have an incredible birth. A high quality Hypnobirthing course should teach you about how to have a positive c-section even if this would not be your first preference.
