I’m Ellie, founder of Joyful Birthing & Beyond
After the births of my first two children, in 2014 I left my career as a high school teacher to pursue my passion for birth work and have since earned certifications as a HypnoBirthing Practitioner, birth doula, lactation counselor, and pediatric sleep consultant. I am passionate about all things birth and baby but especially empowering women and their partners to make informed decisions about their birthing, to approach birth with a sense of trust and calm, and to ultimately have a safe, joyful birthing experience and a successful transition into the new demands of parenthood.
Our mission at Joyful Birthing & Beyond is to help parents understand the many choices available to them so they can make informed, autonomous decisions for themselves and their children. We respect that this is your birth and baby, and we know that only you can determine what is best. With compassion, respect, and without judgment, we will support all of your choices and help you seek a positive birthing and early parenting experience.
We offer a variety of services to support families through pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood, including online classes, HypnoBirthing® childbirth education, birth doula support, infant feeding education & support, and sleep support & coaching. For our in-person services, we serve the greater Boston area, southern New Hampshire, and surrounding areas
Joyful Birthing & Beyond was established in 2014 with the goal of educating, inspiring, and empowering women and their partners on their journey through pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood so they can have an optimal experience, as *they* define it.
