Hello, I’m Kylie Elliott and I am a Normal Pregnancy & Birth Consultant. I believe that given the right knowledge, reassurance and practical techniques, the majority of mothers experiencing low risk pregnancies can birth their babies normally. At Greatvine I offer advice services to help with pregnancy, birth and the postpartum to promote the wellbeing of you and your baby, supporting your family unit through the process of welcoming a new member.
With a holistic and practical approach, I’m passionate about educating and empowering parents during pregnancy and into parenthood. I believe that the process of labour and birth is normal and, whilst medical intervention is fantastic when needed, it need not be a medicalised event. Birth can be private, intimate, safe and calm in your own environment. I have been fortunate to have supported many families through a wide range birth experiences including home birth, hospital birth, water birth, normal birth, lotus birth, breech birth, VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean), medicalised birth and, birth by caesarean section. I’ll bring all of my skills and expert knowledge together to support you with an individualised approach that aims for you to be relaxed and confident. I’ll provide you with specialist evidence based information, techniques to promote coping in labour and birth, and gentle support, so that you can make your own informed decisions. I’ll help to choose your best birthing location & write your birth plan, with advice on encouraging your baby into the best position. We’ll explore the role of hormones and how to stay calm and relaxed, including working through fears that can interfere with the process. We can also look at natural remedies, labour pain relief options, the benefits of placenta encapsulation and ways to support you with breastfeeding and bonding.
I’ve worked with many families with young children, families from a range of cultural backgrounds and those whose lives have been affected by disability. Everyone has different circumstances and I’ll offer an ear in an open-minded and non-judgemental manner. If I’m listed as unavailable, please do request a call or send an email, I’ll make my help available to you as soon as possible. Until then, my warmest wishes,
