Feel calm, and in control

Research based techniques to achieve a peaceful birth, or recover emotionally when things have not gone to plan.

"the birth
was beautiful, painless
& my greatest achievement. It would never have been the best experience of my
life without Gemma’s workshop.”

Are you worried something could go wrong when you give birth?

Are you confused about how to prepare for the birth of your baby?

Are you freaking out about the pain of childbirth or something going wrong on the day?

Have you given birth and feel angry, sad or guilty about what happened?

As a midwife, birth educator and birth trauma therapist I have worked with hundreds of people who have felt like this. It makes me so angry when it doesn’t need to be like this for you. I know through my work that with the right balance of Hypnobirthing and birth education you can have a peaceful birth regardless of how or where you give birth. I want to help you feel calm and in control when your baby is born, because it is what you deserve. 

 

I provide accessible, relatable and powerful Hypnobirthing and birth preparation nationally and internationally. As co-founder of ‘Birth Trauma Scotland’ I also work to raise awareness and treats perinatal trauma and postnatal PTSD. I regularly contributes to radio and national news and am invited to speak as a guest lecturer to professionals about birth, resilience and trauma. I feel passionate about helping you achieve a peaceful birth, or recover emotionally when things have not gone to plan.

Testimonials

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.
Claire Farrell & Ross Forgan
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!
Helen Bain & Ben Ingle
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.

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!

“I feel calmer, stronger, more capable. I had’t realised how unhappy I was until I woke up in the morning and that had been taken away… I hadn’t expected the results to be so instant.”
