Biography

 

Hello and well done for trying to find out more about birthing.

I live in Tallai, with my amazing hubby, 5 chickens, 2 miniature dachshund fur babies, a menagerie of ducks, kookaburras, bush turkeys and any other wildlife that knows it can get a free feed. If life isn’t crazy enough, we dual share with my 80 year old parents and I count my blessings everyday.  I have 2 grown up children who are the light of my life.  They are beginning their own journeys now and I am so proud of who they have become.  

I seem to be addicted to a busy lifestyle and I’m passionate about learning and sharing my knowledge. Recently I became an Endorsed Midwife with Medicare rebates and prescribing privileges. I’m also currently studying a diploma in aromatherapy.

I am fifty-something and have been nursing since I was 17.  I completed my midwifery in 1991, wow that’s 28 years ago, how time flies!!

Throughout the 28 years I have always worked in areas of Women’s health and I have seen many changes in the dynamics and politics of birthing, but one thing that never changes is the day you become a mother is the most memorable day of your life. 

When I talk to women and they learn I’m a midwife they usually share their birth story.  Even women in their 90’s still remember the day they birthed their children.  That is why I feel so passionate that every woman should have a positive and empowering birth story.

To be a Calmbirth Educator is a privilege and I feel that the Calmbirth program is so cleverly developed to enable women to have positive and empowering birth stories. My courses are conducted at my home on a beautiful acreage property but only 3 minutes off the M1. 

I charge the Calmbirth recommended retail price of $550 per couple.

To further support your journey following birth, I offer all my Calmbirth participants bulk billed Lactation consultations and post natal support up to six weeks of birthing (conditions apply).
