About your Instructor

 Hi I'd like to Introduce myself. My name is Jacqueline. I'm married to Michael and we have four grown up children, Aileen, Rebecca, Melissa and Kieran and I am the proud gran to our three beautiful grandchildren Emma, Rosie & Michael.   

I love all things pregnancy related and loved being pregnant and giving birth, it was so empowering. I loved it so much, that after my fourth baby Kieran was born, I decided to become a Midwife!

I have 18 years experience as a Midwife. I went on to train and qualify as a Mongan Method Hypnobirthing instructor in 2008, and then a Wise Hippo Birthing Instructor in 2015. I've cared for thousands of women in my time as a Midwife and have worked in four Maternity units within Lothian and Glasgow providing support from early pregnancy through to birth, within the hospital and in women's own homes. I have a vast knowledge in providing care and support for pregnant women, their birthing partners and their babies, as well as providing antenatal education classes within the NHS in my job as a community Midwife.

Having worked in community for twelve years I have experience of supporting women and their partners in becoming confident in transitioning into their parenting journey.

With the services I provide, I strive to offer a service which is personal and professional and adapt my services and classes to meet the needs of mums and their birth partners, so that they can become confident in the birth of their babies and in becoming new parents.

I also enjoy teaching Baby Massage, a lovely way for you to continue that special bond with your baby after birth, if you would like to join one of my baby massage classes in Glasgow's West End or South Side, you can find more information at  www.facebook.com/babymassageglasgow

I am a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) with the International Association of Infant Massage Instructors (IAIM), a Massage therapist and Reiki practitioner. Reiki has many benefits, including reducing stress and aiding relaxation and has even been known to help start labour if a treatment is received near a womans due date.

If you would like to use any of my services or have an informal chat or even meet me to discuss your journey into parenting, please feel free to contact me via telephone on 07806 783 013 or via email: jacquelinemclaughlin@msn.com

I really look forward to meeting you!
