Congratulations on your pregnancy and thank you for visiting my site.
My name in Jemma Bailey, I am a hypnobirthing teacher and birth coach. I completed my initial training using the KGH (Katherine Graves) method and have since completed further training to become a yesmum® birth project affiliate teacher.
I am believe that women should have a calm and positive birth experience however you choose to birth your baby and I equip you and your birthing partner with the tools you need to remain, calm, relaxed and most importantly in control whatever path your birthing takes.
The yesmum® birth project course I teach will support you to nurture yourself during pregnancy, to relax and to trust your body and your baby. The course will teach you and your birth companion simple techniques for a calmer birth and empower you as new parents once your little on arrives.
I came across hypnobrothing in May 2017 when I was pregnant with my daughter Henrietta - I was literally terrified at the prospect of giving birth - a friend recommended hypnobrithing so my husband and I decided to book onto a course. Although we were both very skeptical and apprehensive, 30 mins in both of us were feeling much more confidant, relaxed and in control! Henrietta arrived late August 2017, after a magical birthing experience; from the moment I held her in my arms we both felt empowered as parents. You can find out more about me and my birth story here
Please take a look around my site to find out more about the group, private and online courses I offer. Please do get in touch via email, phone or using the contact form at the bottom of the page if you have any further questions.
I hope I can support you on your birthing journey and I can't wait to meet you.
"Hypnobirthing with Jemma was one of the best decisions I made for our birthing and pregnancy journey. The continual support she gave before and after birth was outstanding. I thoroughly enjoyed the daily affirmations as it reinforced the positive messages of Hypnobirthing and turning over the statement cards each day reminded me that I was in control of my birth even though, "baby comes when baby is ready, baby knows best!" As a couple we had the most positive water birth, utilising all the techniques Jemma had taught us. Engaging in Hypnobirthing with Jemma to prepare me for birth was the most empowering thing and I would highly recommend to any pregnant mama to be."
I teach a complete antenatal course containing everything you need to fully prepare both you and your birth partner for the birth of your baby and beyond.
The course is run over two four-hour sessions during the week and at weekends, either in my studio 5 mins from Euston or my home which is a 5 min walk from Clapham Junction. In order for you to get the most out of your hypnobirthing course, I have a maximum of six couples per class. I also offer private, one-to-one sessions with you and your birth companion and skype courses for those couples who can not make the classes.

I recommend that couples attend the course anytime from their 20th week of the pregnancy. The earlier you start, the longer you have to practice the all-important techniques of hypnobirthing. If you are doing the full course, it’s important that you attend with your birth partner, as they are a valuable part of the birth experience. Group courses take place at the Euston studio, private courses take place in the comfort of your home or mine.
If you are more than 36 weeks pregnant and don’t have time to attend the full course, I offer one-to-one intensive courses with you and your birth companion.

Full course private sessions - £400 per couple
Full course private skype sessions 4 x 2 hour sessions - £325 per couple
