Avril Carr is 37, Irish and has been living in Al Ain for 8 years. She is a woman, wife to Michael and mother to Cara Bella. She is an English teacher and is very excited to offer hypnobirthing classes to the women (and men) of Al Ain. She trained as a hypnobirthing teacher with The Calm Birth School in the UK. She has a Degree in English, Sociology and Politics, a Masters Degree in Gender and Human Rights and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education. She also has a terrible fear of balloons!
Avril is a passionate advocate for hypnobirthing because it is rooted in science, hormones and biology. It is a common-sense way to birth that allows a woman’s body and mind connection to be strengthened. When we know how birth works then we can engage in practices that help the process, making it calm, peaceful and enjoyable! Hypnobirthing aims to dispel the common misconceptions of birth. We are told that birth is an unsafe and something to dread. Hypnobirthing changes all that by instilling peace and positivity to the woman. She brings calmness to her birth and beyond.
Her hypnobirthing classes include guidance on the following topics:
Hormones during labour
Positive Active Labour
Post Partum Planning
It took Avril and her husband 4 years and 6 rounds of IVF to meet their baby. During this time, Avril came to appreciate what women have to go through to arrive at their babies. The fears, pain and disappointments are untold. Having gone through her own experience, a love of birth and eliminating the fear attached to it has emerged. Her own experience of infertility makes her an understanding ear to any other woman who is going through the same or similar experiences. She is open and willing to help any woman who is in the same position. Please reach out.
She is now committed to guiding women to have a peaceful, calm, gentle and empowered births. She is passionate about helping women tap into their strength within. She is committed to helping women realise that labour should not be feared or dreaded. Through hypnobirthing, it can be a joyful, positive and incredible experience!
When Avril is not with her daughter, teaching English or facilitating hypnobirthing classes, she is resting! 1 year olds are no joke!
Avril looks forward to welcoming you to one of her hypnobirthing classes soon!
