About Me

An Empowering Space for Mamas

If you are a first or second, third, fourth (or more) time mother who is worried about giving birth, get in touch with Calm Mama Collective. I provide hypnobirthing courses in Redhill, Reigate and the surrounding areas that help women and their partners learn about birth in a way that is designed to inform and empower anyone about to experience birth (as the person giving birth or the person supporting). Everyone should have the opportunity to learn about how incredible birth is and how well it can work (in the right environments) to lay the groundwork for a truely positive birth experience.

The whole aim of this antenatal course is that you head into birth armed with knowledge and the power that knowledge brings so that you have the best odds of having a really positive experience of birth, no matter what that birth looks like.

 

To join a hypnobirthing course in Surrey that help you practice a calm birth, don’t hesitate to call Calm Mama Collective.

 

My goal is to create a warm, safe and calm environment for new Mamas to thrive and find a friendly community in which to receive support and raise their babies.

Hello, I’m Emma. I live in Merstham and teach hypnobirthing courses in Surrey at Calm Mama Collective.

Having a background as a psychologist you would think that the link between our minds and body in labour would have been obvious to me. However, having not made this important connection I had a long and difficult labour with my first child 9 years ago. I found labour frightening and I felt out of control, it didn’t fit with how I truly felt that birth should feel emotionally.

When I was pregnant with my second-born, I had a gut feeling that the birth should be different to the first one. I researched and learnt everything I could about the psychology of birth, more commonly known as ‘hypnobirthing’. As a result I had an easy, beautiful and emotionally healing birth of my second son in 2018.

With that birth, I knew I had found my calling, a passion to help other families learn everything I know as a psychologist and birth worker about the mind/body connection and how we can use that to positively impact on our experiences of birthing our children. Any woman, when armed with this knowledge, can have a calm, positive birth experience no matter the route their birth takes, whether that birth be in a pool, at home or in a theatre, every birth has the potential to be a beautiful, empowering experience with the right preparation. 

Since training in early 2020 I have supported many families in their preparation for birth and I have throughly enjoyed watching the transformation of the families I support, from nervous parent to be to confident birthing people! My passion for making the transition into parenthood as smooth and easy as possible had lead me to also train as a Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioner and Breastfeeding Peer Supporter. This life changing training now means that I am able to continue to support the Calm Mama Collective families into parenting with their infant feeding journeys if they want my support.

It is also worth saying, I know that pregnancy and birth is not always easy and straight forward, our own personal and medical histories can add to the anxiety and worry you may feel about birth. I am a mother who has experienced infertility, the challenges of fertility treatments, the truama of baby and pregnancy loss and medically complex pregnancies, I promise you, with me at Calm Mama Collective you are in safe and gentle hands to guide you through to meeting your baby.
