Are you scared of the pain of childbirth? Worried that something will go wrong? Do you want a natural, drug free birth but are aware that the statistics are against you? If so Hypnobirthing is for you. You will learn how to stay calm, confident, in control and fear free throughout birth. Today we are surrounded by the horror stories of childbirth. In fact traumatic birth has become the norm with 1 in 3 women leaving hospital traumatised. Pregnancy can be an extremely anxious time when faced with the prospect of having to give birth, with the fear of these horror stories becoming your reality. That is why investing in your birth is so important to make sure your baby’s birth is positive.
I absolutely loved Gemma’s Hypnobirthing course. I went in with no real expectations and have left feeling so inspired and positive about the birth.
We stumbled upon the course by chance when looking at hypnobirthing courses, and feel so lucky to have found it. It all makes so much sense and I am now looking forward to bringing my baby into the world when he or she is ready to arrive. I’ve been listening to the birth rehearsal track every day and I can feel myself becoming more and more positive. Thank you!
Do you feel scared of giving birth? Do you feel anxious that something could go wrong? Are you worried about the pain? Or do you feel confused about how to best prepare for childbirth? So many people I work with do, and I am not surprised when there is so much conflicting advice and horror stories everywhere.
Having transformed birth for hundreds women and birth partner’s I have developed a unique Hypnobirthing birth education course to tackle these problems based on my experience as a midwife, antenatal education teacher and birth trauma therapist. My workshop is realistic, powerful and many report life-changing. Having had two blissful home births myself I passionately believes in your bodies ability to give birth, whilst as a midwife I realistically understand that medical intervention is at an all time high and we don’t birth in an ideal world. This is very worrying for expectant parents which is why the correct preparation is key.

Many of my clients report that my unique techniques positively impact their mental health and wellbeing long after the birth. My practical and accessible approach to birth preparation is based on science from the field of neuropsychology and birth physiology and is totally research based. It is important to note that I does not teach, a change in language commonly taught in most Hypnobirthing courses (for example replacing ‘contraction’ with ‘surge’ or ‘pain’ with pressure’) and does not teach complicated breathing techniques.
What I teach is accessible, simple and effective.

Birthing my second baby was the greatest achievement of my life and I couldn’t have done it without Gemma’s amazing, informative and empowering Hypnobirthing
My favourite thing was how much Xavier is able to be involved during the birth and to support me. He really feels like he knows what he can do now and not worried about feeling like a third wheel. I can’t explain how huge this is as he’s excited to be involved and that gives me a level of comfort that I wouldn’t have otherwise had. Also the self hypnosis techniques are simple so easy to practice and I’m already trying to apply them in other areas of my life which has been useful. All the information you’ve passed onto us has been invaluable and it has given me the confidence that whatever happens I’ll be able to handle it.
We learnt that a natural and calm birth is possible. Everything was so interesting, informative and positive. We feel so prepared and ready now. Gemma is fabulous- so positive, encouraging and knowledgable. We loved it! Can’t wait to birth and put it all in to practice.. come what may!!
Fantastic workshop and so down to earth & honest – highly recommend! I have really enjoyed my day and feel really positive & energised.
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. 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!
As a worried expectant father, I learned so many ways to help my wife – as well as building my confidence to deal effectively with the medical team at the hospital.
This course should be on the NHS. All expectant parents can benefit.
We really enjoyed the workshop & feel that it will be very beneficial for us and for our baby to continuing practising Natal Hypnotherapy. Gemma has helped us boost our confidence; she is really good and empowering.
Gemma is very positive about birth & professional yet approachable so we could ask anything. We both felt we learned a lot/got a lot from this course & will definitely recommend it others.
Gemma is amazing! Informative, open and welcoming. We felt at ease to ask questions. We now realise what everyone loves about it. Amazing informative day!
It was practical and down to earth & so useful. Gemma is so approachable and never made me feel like anything was a silly question.
Gemma is very passionate & that is clear. Knowledgable from lots of different angles, great ‘range’ of advice on all of labour & pregnancy. Would recommend to anyone.
It is clear Gemma knows the craft and delivers the presentation VERY well. She is very friendly and open with loads of anecdotal evidence. Helpful that she has had such a broad experience in midwifery as well as in teaching. Good food & drink too!
Gemma has such high level of knowledge and is able to present with such a positive view of birth with the balanced view of acknowledging medical necessity. I think there is such a benefit to being taught by someone who is a midwife but has also used the techniques herself.
Very useful, really glad we came. Great to meet like minded people. Gemma is very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and approachable. Very supportive. Thank you
Fear can be conquered! The best part of the workshop was Gemma’s knowledge & positivity and the focus on natural techniques. It was well organised, comprehensive & a positive experience.
It changed my whole perception of the role of the partner during the birth; I wasn’t clear what the role was before. Gemma was excellent, engaging, positive & enthusiastic.
Money well spent. Feel very positive about birth and my ability to have a safe effective birth. Gemma is very inspiring & knowledgable. Great that she has the experience as a practising midwife as well. She instills confidence.
Gemma is brilliant! the course has made me feel calmer, and more confident about birth. Really glad we came! Feeling positive now.
We took part in this incredible workshop with the inspirational Gemma Nealon. It offered me the opportunity to be in a better place and completely transformed the whole way I thought about birth _ it was educational & changed my whole experience. Anyone that is expecting & interested in doing Hypnobirthing- its the way forward!! DO IT!! It really works!!
Superb, really inspirational and motivating. Gemma addressed our fears and doubts and helped to alleviate them through her workshop. Nick and I are really excited about the birth now.
The best part of the workshop was seeing my parter feeling more in control and part of our baby’s birth. Gemma is really approachable and a very good teacher. I am feeling so much more prepared and excited about our baby’s arrival. So pleased we decided to do this workshop with Gemma.
Gemma is supportive, warm, informative and calm! So lovely to have a midwife background- very reassuring. Could not have been better. We both feel a lot more relaxed, calm and prepare for a lovely birth now.
So useful to have Gemma’s experience as a midwife in the NHS alongside her Hypnobirthing experience. The best part of the workshop were the hypnosis sessions and learning that the birth partner is not just a spare part. This is not hippy nonsense!
Gemma you are amazing and your enthusiasm towards the course/techniques is inspiring. Very good teacher & am very glad to have had the chance to learn and take part.
We loved it! Gemma is excellent, enthusiastic and encouraging. The most important thing we learnt was breathing techniques and how to have positive experience despite intervention.
