Welcome to FearFree Birthing!
My name is Elaine, and I am a Stress Management & Hypnobirthing expert. I have left behind me the hustle and bustle of TV producing in the media world, and leaned into the nurturing and instinctive primitive world of birth & motherhood. From fertility, birth and postpartum, I am here to support, care, listen and enable you with life skills to find your perfect balance. My own experience of infertility, pregnancy using these Hypnobirthing skills for the births of my own sons, and postpartum struggles with living away from family and the difficulties I found with breastfeeding, I have trained fully in all areas so that I can support my clients to have a stress & fear free experience. I am confident I will have a positive impact on all parents and parents to be, and can offer something to everyone from pre-conception to early years using a range of Mind & Body techniques. I would be honoured to work along side you and support you through some of the most precious and emotional events that we endure on the path to parenthood.
For 10 years, I have been working with women and couples in the UK and Ireland! As you will see from my own Hypnobirthing story, the skills I learnt and utalised have literally transformed my life and even how I parent. Through it I have developed and offer a fantastic range of antenatal & postnatal classes, workshops, and materials to help you and your partner have a confident, relaxed, controlled, and FearFree Birth, fertility and parenting experience. I specialise in Hypnobirthing and was trained by the amazing Maggie Howell in Natal Hypnotherapy and by Holly Wincote at the Hypnotherapy academy for Stress Management. I am a certified Birthlight Yoga teacher for pre & post natal, and I love to support families with their newborns in my role as a Dona International Postpartum Doula and Blossom & Berry Baby Massage, Yoga, Developmental play & Infant Mental Health teacher. And I offer a massage therapy for women any stage pre conception & post birth to support you physically, mentally & emotionally. I specialise in Womb & Fertility Massage Therapy in Dublin. I am also honoured to be the Postive Birth Movement regional coordinator for Ireland, and in this role, will support the facilitors around the country and reach many women with this FREE global support network for woman centred and evidance based birth. I run classes in Dublin (weekly Pregnancy Relaxation in Mamas & Papas Dundrum, and monthly Hypnobirthing courses in a beautiful Yoga centre in Rathmines D6), and can also facilitate them in Waterford and Wicklow. I still maintain my Honorary Contract with the NHS as Parent Educator to run my Hypnobirthing courses in the RVI Birth Centre Newcastle Upon Tyne in North East England quarterly. And I'm a very proud support worker for AIMs Ireland where I volunteer to help women in Ireland with the maternity services.
Hypnobirthing - Mind & Body antenatal prep
Self Hypnosis and Stress Management techniques can be used by both mother and birthing partners to help have a confident, controlled & relaxed delivery. It can be utilised in all aspects of pregnancy, as well as in the many options of birth available - from home to hospital to caesarean birth.
In addition to the group workshops, I also offer private sessions for couples and individuals, & a VIP Bespoke Service if you require more discretion or flexiblity. If you are interested in this service please get in touch.
