Certified Hypnobirthing Coach, Mindful Breastfeeding Supporter & Full-Spectrum Doula

Elana Jefferson-Tatum, Ph.D. (she/they)

Hi there! I’m Elana! I first encountered hypnobirthing and doula work during my second pregnancy, and the experience changed my life forever. I was a professor for several years but now I’m refocusing all my passions, knowledge, and experience around spiritual care, community healing, and reproductive health into providing support to birthing persons throughout their reproductive life journey. I’ve since also become a certified mindful lactation practitioner and have been thrilled to witness how seemingly basic relaxation techniques in combination with support and education can foster a calm and confident lactation and parenting experience. Through personalized courses and coaching sessions that combine hypnobirthing, mindful lactation techniques, and doula expertise, I’m excited to assist you in creating your best birth and far beyond.

What is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is a self-directed practice of deep relaxation that in combination with the use of visualization, breathing techniques, and affirmations will empower you to flow with rather than against the natural abilities and instinct of your body during labor.
