Welcome to Soma Birth
I would love to work with you and your partner towards your positive, calm, safe, and empowered birth!
Why choose me?
I am an advocate for physiological childbirth, but also understand that sometimes there are special circumstances that may mean that this is not the best option for mum or bub. I want you to know that I support women to bring their bub into the world in the way that is right for them, with their unique set of circumstances.
It is important to understand, that when we are well prepared, well supported, and know our options, we have the best opportunity to come away from our birth feeling empowered and full of vitality….no matter how it unfolds.
By providing you with quality information and the right tools, I will work with you and your partner to help you prepare for your birth and to embrace the fact that you are designed for this!
I am not here to direct the course of your birth or to tell you the ‘right’ way to do it. It is your birth. It is your body. It is your baby. You are in the driver’s seat, but I will be here to support you, and guide you – at your request – every step of the way.
You’ve got this, mama!

I believe it is every woman’s right to have a positive, calm, safe, and empowered birth.
I can’t wait to work with you and your birth partner, and to discuss how I can support and assist you throughout your pregnancy, birth, and into your post-birth period.
Elyse’s calm confident manner and friendly personality made the class so informative and relatable. I hadn’t been sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. As Elyse said, a good mix of mainstream and alternative.Chrissy
The Hypnobirthing course has given me confidence and belief in myself and my body to birth my baby in a calm, stress-free way.

I haven’t been to regular antenatal classes, so I don’t have anything to compare to, but I would recommend Hypnobirthing classes to anyone who is expecting. I feel empowered to make the right choices for me and my babies, because I have the knowledge. I feel prepared for birth, my anxieties and fears have been addressed, and I am looking forward to the birth of my babies. Elyse went the extra mile to find out as much as she could about our circumstances (identical twins), for which I was extremely grateful.Kat
I was a little skeptical about Hypnobirthing when my wife suggested enrolling in these sessions. This skepticism was immediately thrown out of the water when Elyse – who was so relaxed, informative and supportive – took us through the course. The course has prepared us greatly for a calm, safe, and positive birth. Thanks Elyse.Adrian
