I'm Julie. I'm a hypnobirthing teacher, birth preparation coach and doula. I'm passionate about helping people discover their power in their birth process and improving families' birth experience through hypnobirthing and birth preparation.
I discovered hypnobirthing when I was preparing to birth my second baby Kit and hypnobirthing helped me to have him at home in a birth pool supported by my husband, my doula and two midwives. This really positive birth led me to train as a doula so I can attend other’s births to support them. I then trained as a hypnobirthing instructor so I can share the skills and techniques with you to have a positive, calm birth.
Before the birth of Kit, I was a yoga teacher teaching mainly pregnancy yoga. I currently sit on the Maternity Services Liaison Committee for NHS Lothian which works to improve maternity care experiences and protect the rights of birthing people.
Birth is a physiological process as old as time itself. A good birth requires excellent preparation, great support and the right environment. Through my Birth Works classes I will help you work out how this looks for you.
I want you to have the best birth possible. One where you come out the other side feeling strong, powerful, knowing that you decided how to bring your baby into this world.
I want you to know that it's possible that birthing your baby will be one of the greatest experiences of your life.
