Calmbirth® is the only childbirth education program that requires all its educators to be practising midwives or trained birth professionals
I am a Registered Midwife from Bath, England. Having completed my Midwifery training at the prestigious City University in London between 2006 – 2009, I went on to do my preceptorship year at a large NHS University Hospital in East London where I held a rotational position working between the low risk midwifery led birthing unit, the high risk obstetric unit and the ante and postnatal wards. I then moved into the Community setting, where I ran a low risk midwifery clinic for pregnancy, provided postnatal care in the home setting and attended many home births alongside the Home Birth Midwifery Team. I have been present for over 3,000 babies in my 11 years as a Registered Midwife, my care and compassion has led me to positively impact women and their families.
When an opportunity for an overseas midwifery role arose in 2014, I ventured here to Australia taking a position at the Mater Private Hospital working across all areas of Maternity: Birth unit, the Post Natal ward and the Education Team utilising her diverse range of midwifery skills.
My love for education has grown through her career, leading me to complete my Calmbirth®’ Educator Training this year. It is in this training that I have developed a great interest in the mind- body connection during labour providing the foundation for the educational support I have to offer.
