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 four beautiful grandchildren Emma, Rosie, Michael and the newest addition Connor who arrived during The Covid-19 pandemic in June 2020.

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 went on to train and qualify as a Hypnobirthing instructor in 2008. 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.

Drawing on my personal and professional  life experiences I am enthusiastic about 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.

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 07806783013 or via email: jacqueline@hypnobirthingsanctuary.co.uk

I really look forward to meeting you!
