All births, all ways

Welcome to Positive Birth Scotland. You will find research based techniques to achieve a peaceful birth, or recover emotionally when things have not gone to plan.

Are you scared of giving birth? Would you like to let go of the fear of childbirth and have a peaceful birth?

It’s very common to be afraid of giving birth. The good news is there are ways to help you feel calm and in control.

I help parents move from birth fear to birth calm. Parents achieve a positive birth by using my research based Hypnobirthing techniques to reducePB master insta300dpi pain and increase their chance of a natural birth. Whether you want to stay calm about giving birth or if you are completely frightened I can help you achieve the birth you want. Excited to learn too? Click here.

My workshops and classes have been described as ‘birth boot camp.’ You will have a formula that consistently delivers a calm birth regardless of how or where you give birth. You will feel prepared, in control and ready for anything that could happen on the day. I love working with people like you who value the birth of your baby, and understand it is one of the most important days of your life. It breaks my heart to know that childbirth is so traumatic for many when I have helped hundreds of couples achieve the birth of their dreams. Read their birth stories here …

Sadly for many, birth is traumatic and this has fired by passion to set up ‘Birth Trauma Scotland’ where I offer compassionate treatment for women, birth partners & healthcare professionals affected by perinatal trauma, PTSD and Tokophobia, Learn more




Gemma’s medical training combined with her passion & belief in the impact of Hypnobirthing was hugely reassuring. She is enormously personable, welcoming and exudes an empowering belief in all her students. The most important things we learnt was the simplicity of using the breath, and that we do not need to maintain a constant state of hypnosis. That Dad can do WAY more than we thought- and has the most important role! Thank you for your ongoing commitment to educating parents to be and changing misconceptions around childbirth. This is important and necessary work. You are doing a wonderful thing Gemma!

About Gemma Nealon

I am a midwife, who loves to share the techniques I used myself during two wonderful experiences birthing both my babies at home. I am passionate about increasing your chance of a natural birth whilst giving you powerful skills to cope if things do not go to plan. 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 feel in control 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. 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 & birth trauma therapist.



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.

—Georgia & Simon

I learnt how to stay calm, relax and breathe, knowing I can regulate and influence the nature of birth. We learnt options to cope with any situation. Gemma was really engaging and passed her experience and knowledge over in a way that inspired confidence in being able to cope with a daunting process. Empowering!

—Sophie O'Brien

Awesome! Love Gemma’s approach. Really sensible, common sense information that we haven’t come across else where. The most important thing we learnt was that we can have a positive birth even if intervention is necessary.
