Getting To Know Calmbirth Educator Christine Girdham
Christine is a registered midwife, registered nurse, a neurodevelopment consultant and an immuniser.
“I have an amazing little boy who is the highlight of my life. One of my most memorable accomplishments was presenting at the International Lactation Conference in San Antonio Texas in 2010. I love adventure, being outdoors, spending time with family and friends and filming. I won a prize with my first short film I made.
“My passion in life has always been caring for and empowering families and individuals in Australia and overseas. I have nursed in many different areas including paediatrics, paediatric cancer ward, NICU, adult med./surg. and now midwifery. My diverse experience has given me the opportunity to view life and everything in it from many different lenses and that there are many ways to approach our life journeys. Calmbirth mimics my values and beliefs and for this reason I have proudly joined the Calmbirth educator team. It is truly a privilege to be able to help empower birthing couples to approach their birthing journey with greater understanding, less fear and anxiety and increased confidence to have a positive experience during one of the most important times in their lives. “
