Calmbirth® is the only childbirth education program that requires all its educators to be practising midwives or trained birth professionals
Registered Nurse & Midwife
The Sutherland Hospital The Kingsway and Kareena Road
I am a Registered Midwife and Registered Nurse with over 10 years experience in supporting women through all areas of their birthing and parenting journey. My particular passion is in Antenatal and Early Parenting Education and I am happiest when sharing my knowledge and accompanying couples on their own unique journey into parenthood.
It is my firm belief that every woman is born instinctively knowing how to give birth but societal norms have caused us to lose sight of this amazing, innate ability. As a result, we don’t fully trust our bodies to see the process through and women become weighed down by fear and anxiety.
I see my role as a “re-educator”, rather than an ‘educator’, and Calmbirth as the master-key to unlocking your own strength and ability to birth your baby in the best way for you. Every single birth is incredible and unique and having had 3 children myself, I can attest to the fact that no two births are the same.
I have a special interest in helping couples to overcome their fears so that their experience of birth is the powerful, transformative and empowering experience that nature intended it to be, regardless of where your journey takes you.
Preparation of not just the woman, but also her partner is fundamental to the process and I love that the Calmbirth program recognises the importance of preparing you both for this life-changing event. It inspires a deep connection between the woman and her partner so that together they can transition calmly to parenthood.
At every birth a baby is born and so, too are a mother, a father and a whole new family. As a Parent Educator since 2012, I have been privileged to be there to help nurture many new families, but in offering you the Calmbirth program, I believe that I am offering you the missing piece to the jigsaw of labour and birth.
I look forward to accompanying you and your partner on your own Calmbirth journey to parenthood.
