With several hundreds of satisfied parents and a broad roster of VIP and celebrity clients, doula & hypnobirthing specialist Elise Tobias has her own clinic at The Portland Hospital where she offers bespoke birth preparation consultations alongside her signature, 5-star rated hypnobirthing courses.
Elise specialises in educating parents in the science of birth physiology, psychology, effective techniques and support - enabling parents to approach birth free of fear, knowing how to optimise their likelihood of experiencing a positive birth where they feel in control, calm and well cared for.
Elise's course and approach is modern, science-based and practical.
Approved by leading Obstetrician, Miss Claire Mellon, who has seen first hand the positive impact of this birth preparation course, Elise is also a Doula, specialising in Birth Doula support which provides continuity of care to the parents who would like it.
Prior to setting up Birth Bubble, Elise worked for over a decade in International TV, selling and consulting on the distribution of TV programmes around the world. This was all before hypnobirthing, and her birth experience with her little girl, Millie, totally changed her life.
So why hypnobirthing? Well Elise experienced the transformational effects of this way of preparing for birth when she was pregnant in 2016/17. Thanks to hypnobirthing, she went from being terrified of birth to feeling really excited for it - going on to enjoy a labour which was so tough, and yes the most empowering and transformational experience.
Realising her birth experience was so different compared with most of of her peers and having felt so disempowered by her antenatal course during pregnancy, Elise felt compelled to create and share a modern, practical and informative hypnobirthing course - one that would speak to modern mums who, like Elise, were looking for useful birth prep and education - and a course that makes this learning enjoyable, too!
Elise's career as a TV consultant means her teaching style is no-nonsense, relaxed and interactive.
As humans, we learn best through doing and practice, so preparing for birth with Elise is personal, relaxed, interactive and practical. There is nothing hippie in this course either. Every single technique Elise teaches you is backed up by science (and will take you just 10 minutes of practice daily!)
Elise has used all of her training, education and skills to create a super modern, accessible and fully comprehensive hypnobirthing course which sets you up for success regardless of where you are planning to have your baby.

I also attend the annual conferences of Make Birth Better & partake in monthly CPD workshops across all areas of perinatal health to ensure I am continually developing my knowledge & keeping all my services up to date and fully evidence-based.
This course is the most amazing combination of useful information about birth and practical techniques. I loved that the course felt very personalised, even in a group setting. Lots of information is given but in a very structured way, and the course setting is so relaxed which enables everyone to ask questions at any time, and which Elise addressed extremely well. I now feel excited about birth - I am genuinely not worried about it at all!
I feel I have all the knowledge I could possibly need before giving birth which will enable me to have a positive experience, no matter what happens.
