Experience a peaceful birth by accessing effective birth education and support. Feel prepared, calm and in control, whatever the circumstances.

Heal, recover and move forward with your life after a traumatic birth or perinatal event with powerful, solution focused treatment.

 

"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!"

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
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.

Gemma Nealon: Midwife, birth educator and trauma therapist

My unique, science based, practical methods are based on my years of experience as an NHS midwife, antenatal educator, hypnobirthing teacher and perinatal trauma therapist. I’ve supported hundreds of women and their birth partners, both across the UK and internationally, through my workshops, one-to-one birth coaching and trauma therapy. They have all experienced incredible results.

 

Maternity practitioners and health professionals train with me – because my methods are trusted and supported by research. I’m a member of the NHS Lothian Perinatal Mental Health Network and regularly contribute to national radio and news programs about birth, resilience and perinatal trauma.

Recover from a traumatic birth or perinatal event

Solution focused treatment to overcome fear, anxiety and previous trauma so that you can recover emotionally, create resilience and ‘feel like you’ again.  

Sadly, trauma & Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often go undiagnosed and are wrongly treated. As co-founder of ‘Birth Trauma Scotland’ I work to raise awareness and treat perinatal trauma and postnatal PTSD. I have extensive experience of helping people affected by miscarriage, fertility treatment, PTSD and phobias related to birth, including Tokophobia or vaginismus. I also have experience of working with people who have been affected by abuse and sexual abuse.  

I’ve helped hundreds of women, their birth partners and healthcare professionals recover emotionally, so that they can create resilience and move forward.

"I feel so happy. It's almost too much, like my heart is overflowing. I didn't think I would ever be able to feel like this again. I used to think this feeling was one resigned to the past that I wouldn't be able to feel again but you helped me open up and find myself. I still don't know how you did it, utter magic (and a wee bit of science(!). Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for giving me my life back, actually more than that as I am finally able to enjoy this new life that includes my gorgeous baby girl and not just feel like I have to protect her. So grateful I found you. You saved me. Sarah xx.'

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.”
