Welcome to CQ Birth & Beyond!

My name is Heidi and I am a mother and Calmbirth Educator for the Central Queensland region, offering weekend group workshops in the Rockhampton, Gladstone & Emerald regions, as well as private classes in the Rockhampton/Yeppoon region.

As a Registered Nurse who has specialised in the field of Paediatrics for over 22 years and as a Registered Midwife since 2008, I am excited to take you on a journey of discovery as to how to embrace your pregnancy, birth and parenting calmly, & with knowledge and confidence.

In addition to practicing clinically, I am also a doula and Nurse Educator at Rockhampton Base Hospital. I am passionate about education, as I believe in Nelson Mandela’s quote that “knowledge is power and with it we can change ourselves and the world!’’

Each person’s labour and birth are unique, with their own journey and story. Calmbirth is a powerful antenatal program that will release the couple to embrace birth confidently, passionately and without anxiety, so that no matter how their birth journey unfolds, the techniques will be applicable and useful. Calmbirth also has applications to everyday life beyond birth, and helps couples to trust their parenting instincts as they embrace the role of becoming new parents.
