About Me
Elke Hasner, Community Midwife



I am a German trained registered self employed community midwife. I have been working in Cork, Ireland since 1990. My work is mainly helping women and their families to birth their babies at home.

I worked in several maternity hospitals since I qualified in Hannover, Germany in 1983. Since I started community midwifery here in Cork, I have delivered over 500 babies.

Apart from working in the HSE home birth service I am a private lactation consultant (IBCLC), antenatal teacher, baby massage instructor (CIMI) and placenta encapsulation specialist (IPEN).

Having a home birth with Elke as our midwife was one of the best decisions we have made as a couple. Elke was amazing throughout the entire pregnancy, but especially during the birth of our little one.

I couldn't be more pleased with the care I've received. I felt comfortable throughout the whole process and reassured by Elke. If I give birth again, without a doubt I would use the homebirth service and hopefully have Elke as my midwife again.

I simply can not recommend Elke enough. From the moment we spoke I knew she was the midwife for me. She is a true professional. Incredibly informed, direct, gentle & empathic with a lightness & humour i really appreciated.
