Consciously Calm... Childbirth Education


Consciously Calm... is a unique combination of two Gold Seal HypnoBirthing®™ practioners. Richie Piercey is a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Emily Shiel is a Continence & Women's Health Physiotherapist. Both of these practioners are based at Shiel Family Physiotherapy and would be glad to talk to you about services.  

Do you know that birth can be calm, deeply relaxed and free from fear? 

  • 77% of HypnoBirthing®™ mothers who birthed vaginally did so without epidural anesthesia
  • 45% of HypnoBirthing®™ mothers birthed in under eight hours.
  • 17% of HypnoBirthing®™ mothers birthed via C-section, compared with the national average of 32%.

We run both group and individual sessions delivering the HypnoBirthing®™ International program. This is the original Mongan Method program developed by Marie Mongan over 25 years ago and is the only HypnoBirthing program that is truly international.

HypnoBirthing®™ Classes are taught in a format of five, 2.5 hour classes. To support this program we also run breathing and relaxation classes and Prep for Labour classes, (which are an introduction to relaxation and birthing techniques).
