Hello, I’m Emma, I live in the beautiful town of Dorking, Surrey with my little family, where I hold hypnobirthing workshops at Nama Mama.
I became a real advocate for instinctive birth since feeling the incredible benefits of hypnobirthing with both of my birth journeys. My son was induced at 41+5 weeks, and my daughter was born at home before the midwives arrived!
Two very different experiences, but the tools I had learnt through hypnobirthing truly enabled me to achieve, calm, confident and positive births for both my children, and it still influences me daily in their upbringing.
I love passing this knowledge forward to the couples I teach and to hear the positive influence in the birth stories of their babies is honestly such a privilege.
Since the birth of my son in 2014, I have been very fortunate to meet some wonderful people, mostly incredible women, who have given me a real sense of community and driven me to pursue my passion and change in my career.
I was an Interior Designer for over 15 years, helping to create luxury hotels & homes around the world. When I returned to work after having my first, I found that the pressure to do it all and be it all quickly turned into quite deep running anxiety and it took me a long time to realise that I just wasn't coping, and we were all loosing out.
This sense of struggling through the expectations of modern motherhood became a real calling for me and I wanted to try to help prevent other mums from feeling those same pressures. I place an emphasis in my classes that your journey does not end at the birth, in fact this is just the beginning, and I help parents to prepare for the postnatal period by understanding & embracing the fourth trimester.
In 2017 I helped to set up The Mother Space, a friendly gathering for new mothers in Dorking, where we enjoy a cup of tea, some lovely chat and an easy craft activity in each session.
I'm really proud that these wonderful groups are growing and there are now 2 further spaces in Midhurst & Guildford.
I love living in Surrey, it's a real joy to be part of the local community of Dorking, there is just so much going on for families here.
I feel I’ve truly found myself in my passion for birth and I'm very happy to be part of the LBC family, sharing their understanding that birth can be joyful, positive and empowering.
