Hypnobirthing Cardiff - Teachers' Directory
I’m Lisa .. Mother of four, Doula, KGHypnobirthing practitionerband founder of birth roots. I offer individualised, nurturing care as one journeys towards and through birth into their post-partum. It’s a joy and honour to walk with and bear witness to women’s power and to support their choices, whatever they may be. . I have no particular focus on one type or place of birth, simply the birth that is right for you, one that aligns with your presenting and evolving needs and desires. My care for women over the maternal year begins by providing support antenatally through to birth and into the postnatal period. This phase, termed the fourth trimester, can often be overlooked, but time taken here always benefits the new Mother, and in turn the whole family. By Mothering the Mother, through nurturing and nourishing care, it allows her to rest and recover, while gently transitioning into her new role, while the whole family adjust to their new rhythm of life. Complementing this I am a Holisitc Therapist, offering Reflexology, Massage and Aromatherapy; for those choosing to enhance their holistic wellbeing. I am also a Placenta Remedies Specialist, working for women who choose to include their placenta as part of their post partum healing, in the form of encapsulation, tincture, essence and homeopathic remedies. Additionally I hold skills in Rebozo, Homeopathy and Acupressure for childbirth, while crafting bespoke Mother Blessing ceremonies and Closing the Bones ceremony, which takes place post partum. My experience personally, and with the clients I support, is that when a woman understands the processes of birth and all the choices available to her within this, receives respectful and compassionate care, she is then better able to emerge powerful, joyful and intact because birth has been positively transformational. This matters to me because women are important, our needs are important, birth is important, Motherhood is important. I admin our local positive birth group, holding monthly birth circles too, nestled here in the Vale of Glamorgan.
I started Hypnobirth Mamas to offer support, community and positivity to pregnant women and their partners, all things I feel very passionately about.
I am mother to Ella, Indigo and Freya and have used Hypnobirthing with all my pregnancies and births. I was blown away when I attended a Hypnobirthing course during my pregnancy with Ella - I felt permission, for the first time in my life, to have a calm, quiet and natural birth. I still use the breathing techniques and meditations to help me parent calmly when things are not calm.
I have always worked in health services; from a women’s sexual health charity in Guatemala to the Department of Health in London. What I love about teaching Hypnobirthing is that one course changes the story of a birth; whether it’s a couple who feel clearer about where they want to give birth or a mother feeling calm for the first time during her second pregnancy, being part of that change is a real privilege.
