Anne Ludlow has been a midwife for over 20 years, having changed from a thoroughly enjoyable nursing career after having three children of her  own.

She says, “I have an immense passion for ensuring not only healthy bodies, but excellent mental well-being for the pregnant woman and her partner. A woman who goes through pregnancy in a calm, relaxed and confident way will not only have a better birth experience herself; her partner and baby will too!”

Anne’s background in nursing and midwifery is complemented by knowledge in psychology, education and counselling. She has conducted many antenatal classes, but having qualified as a Calmbirth educator, she knows how important it is for the pregnant woman to be in the best possible frame of mind when preparing to give birth.

Anne will be teaching the Calmbirth course at the Northern Beaches Hospital which will be launching at the Hospital shortly, so watch this space for dates.
