Hi there I’m Natalie 🙂

I have a passion for supporting couples on their journey from pre-conception, through pregnancy, to birth, postpartum and beyond.

Let me tell you a little about myself and why I love Calmbirth®…

I am a Registered Midwife, Child and Family Health Nurse, and Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and have worked with women and their families for over 19 years.

Working in several busy birthing units in Sydney I noticed a difference in the couples I cared for who had attended Calmbirth®. They seemed to be more ‘in tune’ with labour & birth and so well connected to each other and the physiological process of birth. They were aware of their options, and were confident with their decisions and able to advocate for themselves on the type of support and care that suited them best. 

 So it was an easy decision for my partner and I to attend Calmbirth® prior to the birth of our first child. Despite already being a midwife, as a nervous mother-to-be with IVF struggles finding trust in my body was proving a challenge. Calmbirth® was such a powerful learning experience to calm these nerves.

Calmbirth® provides the knowledge and understanding of how the mind-body connection affects birth.

The relaxations and breathwork gave me the trust in my body that my IVF struggles had taken away.

Calmbirth® enhanced my partner’s ability to support me throughout labour and birth.

Welcoming our child into the world was such a joyful and euphoric moment

With Calmbirth® I believe that every couple can plan for this kind of empowering birth experience.

My personal experience with Calmbirth®, and the passion I have for guiding couples through pregnancy, birth and into the early years of parenthood, are the reasons why I became a Calmbirth® Educator. I believe that how you prepare for labour and birth is so important in creating a positive experience. Childbirth and breastfeeding has been removed from society for most women and so how you, your partner AND your care provider feel about birth has such a powerful knock on effect which can mean the difference between a joyous and smooth birth and easier transition into parenthood or a more challenging and rocky journey.

Birth is transformative for a reason… you become a parent ! …a mother, a father ❤️

Biologically, birth forms the basis of a strong bond and attachment with your partner and baby that lasts a lifetime.

With Calmbirth® you will learn how labour and birth, like breathing, is a normal process of your body. Discover how your body and baby are so beautifully designed and will do what they are ‘meant to’ if we don’t let societal ‘norms’, beliefs and a culture of fear surrounding birth interfere with the beautiful process.

Calmbirth® gives you and your partner the knowledge and tools to support the labour and birth process and help you foster trust in your body, your partner and baby, surrendering to birth.

Feel confident in preparation for your baby’s arrival equipped with tools to support and nurture yourself, partner and baby and create a positive birth experience, no matter how your journey unfolds.

Whether you are choosing a hospital or a home birth, I look forward to sharing Calmbirth® with you and your birth partner.
