Elena Paparello Wise Mamas Midwife Instructor

Hi, I'm Elena. 

I live and work in East Sussex.

I am a midwife, mum, and co-founder of Wise Mamas with my brilliant colleague Lenka. I'm also a former doula and holistic health practitioner.

I am originally from Italy but have been a bit of a nomad for most of my life. I have lived and practiced as doula and midwife in California, Central America and now in the UK. I studied midwifery in Italy but also had the privilege of training with Ina May Gaskin and the Farm midwives in Tennessee. 

I am passionate about supporting families to find their voice and their power through pregnancy and birth as I believe this will help them immensely in their journey as parents. Hypnobirthing offers such a wonderful opportunity for families to educate themselves and make the right choices for them, creating the set up for a positive birthing experience.

We look forward to hearing from you.

"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers - strong, competent, capable mothers

who trust themselves and know their inner strenght." BARBARA KATZ ROTHMAN
