Congratulations on your pregnancy! 

In the coming months you will be welcoming your baby and I am delighted that you are looking to invest and develop your knowledge in your birth education.  As a Royal College of Midwives accredited hypnobirthing practitioner, qualified by the gold standard of hypnobirthing, KGH, and member of The Hypnobirthing Association, based in Oxford, Oxfordshire, I have developed the Brain, Body, Birth concept, where you and your birth partner will discover the science and logic of hypnobirthing together with a full antenatal understanding, providing you with some practical tools that will inspire you to create positive outcomes towards the most empowering birth-day that you,

your birth-partner and your baby will experience.

Emma Saville DipHB (KGH)

Hypnobirthing Practitioner

A Royal College of Midwives accredited hypnobirthing practitioner, qualified by the gold standard of hypnobirthing, KGH, and member of The Hypnobirthing Association, Emma has developed the Brain, Body, Birth concept that can enable a calm and efficient birth. Based in beautiful Oxford, Oxfordshire, Emma offers private 1:1, group and bespoke courses both in person and on-line, guiding you with the theoretical and practical tools to show you how positive changes can be implemented during and leading up to the birth of your baby. Emma has successfully guided many couples inc natural, IVF and suragacy pregnancies, across Oxford, Oxfordshire and Europe including paramedics, children’s nurses, teachers, psychologists, yoga teachers, scientists and many more professions that have enabled informed, calm and efficient births in Oxford and Europe in various settings including home-birth, midwife led units and hospitals. The investment of your birth education cannot be under-estimated. This course has such a positive impact to the lives of many expectant parents as I support you to untangle the number of complex and sometimes confusing decisions that are made throughout pregnancy and at the birth, which can affect your experience overall. There are many different opinions to what "hypnobirthing" is. Qualified with The National Hypnotherapy Society, I can confidently reassure you that you will not be hypnotised. The word hypnobithing has been developed from the logic formulated in the early 1900s of the fear-tension-pain cycle and whilst careful use of words are also used in hypnotherapy, the logic is very different as you will discover when you take your course with me. Ellivase Hypnobirthing is for ALL births including caesarean as well as subsequent births. I have poured my heart and love into creating Ellivase Hypnobirthing with careful details that have been designed to inform you, to leave you feeling supported, calm, educated and special to ensure the best outcome for you and your baby as you travel on your journey to parenthood. I want you both to feel supported and special throughout your birthing journey’s too - you will never have this birth again or this experience again (with this pregnancy), which is why choosing the birth education and educator that is right for you is so important. A valuable USP is for all group courses to end with a social meet up within an informal setting. Here, I invite midwives, groups offering support to new mums, baby massage, bump and baby photographers etc who will all be happy to join (subject to shift work). This will enable a drink (on me), an informal chat answering and sharing questions you may want to ask but don't have the opportunity to, as well as to look at preparing for your fourth trimester and making friends. If you have any questions, please get in touch, it will be lovely to talk to you.

"We signed up to the course because we wanted to feel excited and positive about the birth of our daughter. It really exceeded our expectations because we felt even after just one session so much more positive - the '"positive glow" that we got from every interaction with Emma has been growing and growing ever since this first session."

Mindful Pregnancy Relaxation


Relaxation during pregnancy is associated with the effects that include regulation of emotional states and physiology. Relaxation is also associated with positive effects both on foetal behaviour and on obstetric and neonatal outcomes.


A Royal College of Midwives accredited hypnobirthing practitioner, qualified by the gold standard of hypnobirthing, KGH, and member of The Hypnobirthing Association, Emma invites you to discover calmness and space with weekly pregnancy relaxations as you travel on a transformative and magical journey to parenthood.


These pregnancy relaxation classes will provide you with soothing relaxations, mindfulness and techniques that can enable a calm and efficient birth.



Feeling tired is normal during your pregnancy, and it's important to take care of yourself and your baby by taking moments of care to relax.  Benefits are found to:


• Reduce stress and anxiety;

• Lower heart rate and blood pressure;

• Increase your inner resilience;

• Increase connection with your baby;

• Increase body awareness; 

Relaxations are held on Sunday's - 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th May at 6.30 pm - 7.30 pm.

Each class is £15.00 or purchase a bundle of four classes for £50.00

Tickets are non refundable on cancellations of 24 hours or less.

**Recommendation from 12 weeks of pregnancy


Brain, Body, Birth: Master the 3 pathways to a comfortable, calm, confident birth workshop


Carefully crafted to take the mindfulness pregnancy relaxation to another level this workshop will enable discussions on the importance of the mind - how you can effectively understand the neocortex and the limbic system to enable a parasympathetic response to increase your oxytocin - your shy but happy hormone that is vital to a comfortable birth. The second pathway you will master is how the body can effectively and efficiently progress through labor by understanding how the muscles of the uterus work together and not against each other, resulting in the third pathway - an efficient and comfortable birth. NB: you will need to practice the techniques you learn at the workshop - nothing comes easy - but making this much difference to your experience of the birth of your baby will be worth it!

Benefits are found to:

• Instill confidence;

• Reduce trauma as your baby births - resulting in better sleep, feeding, development for your baby; • Reduce fears of childbirth;

• Enable a calm, efficient birth;


End your class with light refreshment, chat with others attending, take a stroll through the meadow or simply be still and enjoy the wonders of the courtyard.

This workshop takes place at the tranquil oasis of calm, Heal Oxford Wellbeing, Dovecote Barn Barclay Farm Estates, Little Baldon, Oxford OX44 9PU.   Alternatively, these can be held in the confort of your chosen address on dates and times conveient for you.   Birth partners are welcome, your investment is £45 per person; recommendation from 12 weeks of pregnancy
