MY STORY

Hi , I'm Emma an Acupuncturist/Energy Healer, a Positive Birth Coach and an Empowerment Coach for parents of children with additional needs

 

While I have 2 different strands to my business the overall aim of both is the same ... to empower you during your pregnancy, birth or parenting journey. 

 

As a Positive Birth Coach I teach expectant couples brain training techniques including hypnobirthing & mindfulness so they will feel calm, confident and in control during labour.

 

I review the evidence around all the choices for your birth plan, walk you through how to decide what the right choices are for you and teach you how to advocate for yourself in labour. I teach birth partners lots of different pain relief techniques so they can be a strong support during labour. I also teach couples how to maximise their chances of the birth partner staying with the labouring mum for the entire labour, and how best to minimise interventions as much as possible. 

 

I completed my training with the GentleBirth Institute which is extremely research and evidence based. My previous career was as a scientist so evidence and research is very important to me! 

 

It was actually my life as a scientist that led me to my new path. During that period of my life I suffered from chronic health conditions including IBS, Endometriosis and Fibroids and it was because of that I started going to an acupuncturist for help. I discovered that acupuncture not only helped the physical issues but also with my mental health. It was so transformative that I decided to become a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner myself and opened Be Well Acupuncture Clinic!

 

Shortly after I opened my clinic I discovered I was pregnant and it was then I realised that so many women suffer with pregnancy related problems that western medicine wasn’t helping them with, but that Traditional Chinese Medicine could help with! Not just with sickness, pain, etc but also help preparing them to have a spontaneous and efficient labour, and provide pain relief during labour by using acupressure. 

 

Acupuncture helped me through lots of issues during my own pregnancy, including morning sickness, back and shoulder pain, & anxiety. And of course, my husband used acupressure during my labour and it really worked!! So much so that the midwife didn’t believe I was in labour when I arrived at the hospital ... even though it turned out I was 7cm dilated!! 

 

However all did not go according to plan during my first birth and despite the positive start I ended up with a ventouse delivery and 3rd degree tearing.  

 

So when I had my 2nd pregnancy I knew that I wanted to do something even more that would help me have the positive birth I desired.

 

So myself and my husband did the GentleBirth workshop and we loved it! Mostly I think because it was very science/evidence based and we are both science nerds!! It made such a difference to my second pregnancy and birth. I still used my acupressure but I also used hypnobirthing to keep me calm, I was upright and mobile and we knew what our choices were and my husband knew how to advocate for me. I gave birth to my second gorgeous boy on all fours and in the words of my obstetrician “like a birth warrior”. It was the most amazing and powerful experience and so much easier than my previous birth.

 

I decided that I wanted every woman to know this. To know that she has the power and the strength and the wisdom to have a positive birth. I trained as a GentleBirth Instructor and I now run classes for expectant couples so that you can have that same amazing positive birth experience that I had … regardless of the type of birth you have.

 

Over the last few years I  have realised that attending a live 8hr workshop, either online or in person, is not always something that is achievable. 

 

So I am now offering on demand Online Birth Preparation Courses. These courses offer the same high quality content as my Positive Birth Workshops to prepare couples for a positive birth. But they are available as shorter on demand courses so that women can access them at a time that suits them. And of course, I bring all the tools from my acupuncture training to give you even more resources to draw on to make sure you have the most empowered birth possible!

 

I am really excited to be offering more options for women in pregnancy to access high quality birth information and tools for a positive birth all from the comfort of their own home!!

Acupuncture was my first step on the road to becoming a healer. Over the years I added to may skill set by training in biomechanics, EFT and TFT tapping.  Then I  found myself more drawn into the world of energy healing.  I trained in Reiki level 1 with the intention of only using Reiki on myself but it  was so beneficial that I found myself signing up to train as practitioner almost immediately. After a few years of working with Reiki energy I knew there was something more I needed to do. But  I was unsure of what it was. So I  went on a spiritual retreat where I discovered that I have powerful Angelic healing abilities. So I trained as an  Angelic Healer and here I am! Offering Acupuncture, EFT/TFT, Angelic and Energy Healing in my clinic and absolutely  loving my life.

My journey to being an Empowerment Coach for parents started with my second son.  As his parents we have been through  some tough years trying to get a diagnosis for him and then dealing with that diagnosis. I found that I was relying on a lot of the tools I was teaching as positive birth coach to help me deal with stress and anxiety. These tools really helped me and ultimately my entire family. I had a lightbulb moment where I realised that these were tools that a lot of parents of children with  additional needs/chronic illnesses/neurodiversity/disabilities could benefit from.  That is when I decided to set up my Find Your Joy business to provide classes, retreats and healing services to parents to both heal and empower them  on their parenting journey
