Hypnobirthing with Jodi Murphy
I’m a Mindful Mamma hypnobirthing practitioner based in Long Eaton. I cover the South Derbyshire and Nottingham areas, running group workshops, taster sessions and private one to one’s. I am a qualified practitioner of NLP and Hypnotherapy as well as a children’s yoga teacher and wellbeing coach.
My Birth Experiences
I am a mum to five children and each birth has been very different, from inductions and assisted births to natural births and c sections – the consistent issue with my first four births was that my anxiety around giving birth had been so severe that I experienced dissociative episodes – I had no memories of the moments I brought my babies into the world or of holding them for the first time, or even of taking them home.
I was introduced to the concept of mindful hypnobirthing during my final pregnancy by a friend. She had used hypnobirthing very successfully herself and she knew how important it was to me to have a very different birth to my previous experiences.
I was absolutely amazed at the impact the Mindful Mamma hypnobirthing techniques had and how quickly a change in the way I felt about pregnancy and birth came about. For the first time I felt positive, empowered, knowledgeable and hugely excited to give birth to my son. The techniques made sense, they were practical and simple to learn, easy to apply and they worked!
I was calm and present for every single beautiful moment of my son’s birth; I remember every second of his entrance to the world and how it felt to hold him for the first time. It was without doubt the most amazing moment of my life. I actually said to my husband moments after my son was delivered that I was going to train as a Mindful Mamma practitioner so that I could help more women and their birth partners have incredible birth experiences. It really isn’t just the mums who benefit from this course – it is also about empowering the birth partner to be the best support they can be, to understand the importance of the role that they get to play and be confident in their ability to do this.

“My partner and I feel so lucky to have learnt all about mindful hypnobirthing with Jodi. I feel so empowered with the knowledge of how birth is actually a natural process and as labouring women we can make our experience really positive with breathing techniques, changing our environment and educating our partners on how to support us. Jodi is so knowledgeable about birth, babies, pregnancy, hypnotherapy and mindfulness and shared so much useful information that I felt like I learnt so much in just one day! It was a really beautiful experience that re-bonded my partner and I now feel really excited about the birth of our baby! Thank you so much Jodi xxx” Sophie
“I highly recommend Jodi. As this is my first I was really unsure of what to expect both from the course and birth. Both me and my partner came away feeling like we knew what to expect during the birth. I felt really comforted by the advice given alone, the relaxation is an added bonus! Any questions I had were easily answered by Jodi. I just wish I could do it all again!” Mel
