Dr Eline Pedersen. Doctor of Chiropractic.

Dr Eline Pedersen Doctor of Chiropractic Honoris Cause Doctorate of Humanity” specializing in Leadership (AUGP) Initiator and President of NGO “Birth Forward” Dr Eline Pedersen fundamentally believes in nature’s way of adapting to every aspect of life. As a wellness family chiropractor she studies what she has named the individual’s “HQ” or ‘Health Quotient”. The “Health Quotient” is a measure of an individual’s adaptive state of health, based on their physical, emotional and chemical wellbeing, within the individual’s epigenetic and environmental context. This fits perfectly with the philosophy of chiropractic – that healing is an innate action, which happens from within and that the body is a self-healing organism. Having this in mind, and studying the work of Dr Michel Odent, where he concludes that the most critical time in life affecting our physical and mental health, is the moment of birth, Eline passionately devoted her work and personal life,on making a human being’s birth time the beginning of a well lived healthy lifetime, close to the way nature intended it to be.

As mothers ourselves we know how important it is to care for your body during pregnancy and after giving birth. And it is equally important to use products that are as natural and organic as possible. Pregnancy and birth have a “rollercoaster” effect on our bodies and it takes up to 1 year for our bodies to get back in shape after giving birth. Hormonal imbalance affects our psychology and even causes depression to a great percent of new mothers. The changes in our lives and to our routine can make us feel stressed and anxious. So, it is important to care both for our body and our soul, to remain positive and have a good support system by doctors, friends and family. It is also quite important to feel loved and pampered. That is why we created MommyBox. A gift and subscription box in Cyprus dedicated to new and expecting mommies. A box filled with carefully curated natural and organic products for both mommies and babies to make you feel special. Go on and spoil yourself! You are making a human,Read More

Smile Hypnobirthing

Smile Hypnobirthing is a full antenatal educational program, based on logic, scientific evidence and female intuition. Smile Hypnobirthing empowers the mother so that she always be in charge, while enjoying the miracle of pregnancy and birth. Hypnobirthing mothers give birth in a gentle way, trusting the natural ability of their body to birth. A hypnobirth is usually easier, shorter and comfortable and in many cases even pain-free, and so medical interventions most of the times are avoided or eliminated. Also, hypnobirthing helps the baby to arrive in a smooth and calm way, as nature intended, ready to bond with its mother and settle easily into healthy sleeping and feeding patterns. The main techniques of Smile Hypnobirthing are: self-hypnosis, relaxation techniques, breathings, positive affirmations, energy balance and massage techniques. The benefits of attending a hypnobirthing course are many with the most important being the achievement of a natural, gentle and comfortable birth. Other benefits are: releasing of stress, fear and tension; informed choices; control and confidence during birth; shaping a positive attitude towards pregnancy, birth and life itself!

More than 10 years of practicing and providing professional consultations have proved to me that you are stronger than you think and babywearing willRead More
