Inner Wisdom Doula

The main focus in Hypnobirthing is learning how to relax and calm your mind and body for labour using hypnotherapy. We also cover birth anatomy and physiology so that you both understand what’s happening and what’s coming next. Then there’s some decision making tools to help in case you are offered any interventions. This is likely as we have a very medicalised maternity system, and so you’ll want to know how to find out when an intervention is really needed.

Hypnobirthing is really popular as it is a real game changer, helping you to feel confident and empowered and have a positive birth experience.

As part of the course you are provided with audios to listen to in the run up to and during the birth. One special feature of my work is Soulful Harp – as a therapeutic harpist and doula I have recorded a lovely harp backing track onto the hypnobirthing audios which are recorded using my own voice. This is proving popular with other hypnobirthing instructors around the world!

If you would like to book a place on one of my Hypnobirthing courses you can now do so online via my WEBSITE

Group Course Fee is £125
Private and VIP Hypnobirthing options are also available and can be combined with my Doula Packages for complete perinatal support.
You can opt to pay in full or just pay a £50 deposit to reserve your space. Mums-to-be are most welcome to attend on their own, with their husband/partner or other birth partner.

On Thursdays at 6.30-9 pm. There is also a contingency week scheduled with each course, in case I have to reschedule due to being called to a birth.

The group classes take place at
14 Merchants Place, Merchantgate, York, YO1 9TU

York Mother Nurture

pregnantposter-453190_1920arialMichaela Scott is a qualified practicing medical herbalist and member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH). Her 4 year BSc degree course covered training in general medicine as well as herbal medicine, supplemented by additional clinical training at the Universities of East London, Middlesex and Westminster and a Clinical Examination course at The British School of Osteopathy.

She is also a qualified massage therapist with 16 years experience and specialist training in pregnancy massage.

Michaela is a qualified birth doula (recognized member of Doula UK) who offers emotional and practical support to a woman (or couple) through pregnancy, childbirth and the early post-natal period.

Pregnancy massage treatments cost £40 for 1 hour and are tailored to your needs as a pregnant woman.  The massage takes place on a wide and comfortable massage couch, fixed at a lower level than usual, so that it is easier for you to get on and off.  You will lie on your side, with your head resting on a pillow, and then use as many pillows and cushions as necessary to support you and your bump and make you as comfortable as possible.  You will be covered by towels and only the parts of your body that are being massaged will be exposed.

Gift vouchers are available, as are loyalty discounts (such as pay for 5 massages and get the 6th one free)

When you are growing a whole new human you need some extra nurturing.
