Elin Shanahan a Midwife based in London, UK & Madrid, Spain.
I’m a mum of two, a UK practising Midwife (BMid Hons, MSc), a certified Hypnobirthing teacher and a Newborn Life Support [NLS] Resuscitation Council UK [RCUK] instructor.
While I acknowledge the amazing benefits of science and modern medicine, and the privilege women and birthing people now have in accessing care, I am here to fill in those essential “gaps” that I know exist in the birth world.
I have supported women and birthing people and their families from all walks of life at home and hospital. I have held their hands during their own unique births being a miscarriage, a medical termination, a pre-term birth, a stillbirth, an instrumental birth, a caesarean birth and a birth without intervention.
Every birth is special. Every birth is unique. Birth forever shapes you and your experience of birth is something that you will carry for the rest of your life.
