Name of Practice: Live, Love and Birth
Location of Classes: Ellenbrook, Perth WA
My name is Jacqueline O’Neill, but everyone calls me Jackie. My family consists of my 2 amazing children (20 months apart) an incredibly supportive husband and a cat and dog. Our house is crazy, loud and well lived in and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I have a colourful background. I was born in Switzerland and grew up in Nigeria. We travelled a lot as children. I always thought that was the norm, until we settled in Western Australia. It was then that I realised just how lucky we were – most of the kids in school had never even had the opportunity to see snow.
I speak fluent Swiss-German, German and English – I am grateful my Father kept speaking Swiss to us when we came to Australia.
My intrigue in the body and all that is birth was sparked with my first pregnancy. I had a Breech baby on board and had to fight for my right to birth how I believed my body could. I am sure things would have ended very differently had I not done Independent Childbirth Education and surrounded myself with supportive people.
I went on to have a very empowering positive birth, after changing providers at 39 weeks.
Because of this, I recognised how important it is for birthing women and their Partners to be informed, empowered and supported throughout their journey.
This is YOUR journey, no one else’s. Embrace it, surrender to it and fill yourself with knowledge.
I can’t wait to share all the incredible, empowering tools that Hypnobirthing Australia has to offer.
