I am a practising midwife, who loves to share the techniques I used myself during two wonderful experiences birthing both my babies at home. Having practiced meditation and mindfulness for many years, I have a background as a massage therapist & NLP practitioner. I combine this unique knowledge with my experience within the NHS as a midwife. You will learn techniques and skills that are research based, practical, and that suits all births regardless of setting or mode of delivery. Most of all you will leave feeling inspired and empowered to have a better birth. This is your opportunity to benefit from my experience of supporting hundreds of woman in pregnancy, birth and postnatally.



PBS-140px My midwife-led Hypnobirthing workshops will teach you everything you need to know about how to have a positive birth, regardless of how or where it happens. I teach my group workshops from the beautiful complementary Heath Center Mulberry House in Edinburgh’s West End, privately and also via Skype nationally and internationally. I often refer to my hypnobirthing workshops as ‘bootcamp for birth’ because they will dramatically increase your chance of having a natural birth, whilst totally preparing you for anything that could happen on the big day. My motto is ‘focus on the birth you want but be prepared for anything’! You and your birth partner will learn simple, easy to use tips and techniques that can be used in all circustances, in fact many couple go on to use and benefit from the skills I teach in their day to day lives, long after the birth of their baby has been born. Clients often say they are relieved by my down to earth, logical and researched based approach. I keep things simple, accessible and fun!







The best part of the workshop was discussing the whole process from a different viewpoint (the opposite to antenatal classes) and learning how the birth partner can be such a support & important part of the whole process. Gemma is a great communicator, explains things clearly and reassuringly. We have great confidence that what she has taught us will bring us massive benefit in the process. We are both really glad we took this course and look forward to reaping the benefits of it as we edge closer to the birth.

I brought him up to the surface myself. It has to be one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life! Despite not having the home birth I’d planned, I couldn’t have imagined a better labour and birth of our son… Simon and I want to thank you so much for everything, we don’t stop raving about your workshops and the natal hypno program to everyone we know, we’re going to pass your website details to our friends who are expecting and hope they will use the hypnotherapy too.
