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. This makes me angry when it does not need to be this way and you CAN have a peaceful birth. 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. Read some inspiring birth stories from people who have done my package to see what kind of birth you can expect after working with me.

"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!!"

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 science based Hypnobirthing and 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. I do not recommend changing the language of birth like most Hypnobirthing teachers or even hint about rainbows or unicorns. Instead we talk about research, physiology and facts that get you results; keeping birth safe and enjoyable in all settings. 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 sometimes and we don’t birth in an ideal world. This is very worrying for expectant parents which is why the correct preparation is key.

As a midwife and birth trauma specialist I have seen that learning Hypnobirthing is not enough. That is why I have created a unique Hypnobirthing and birth preparation method that will prepare you for all eventualities and guarantee calm.

What's included:

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!

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.
