My name is Laura. I am a Calmbirth Educator and I also work as a midwife at the Gold Coast University Hospital. I am passionate about pregnancy and birth and I take joy in assisting couples to prepare for the birth of their baby.

I originally became interested in Calmbirth many years ago when a woman I met described giving birth as ecstatic and blissful. I thought “how could anyone describe labour and birth like that?!” After hearing this I had to find out more, so I attended a course during my second pregnancy. This course changed my life. I came away thinking that this was something every pregnant couple should be able to learn and I made the decision to become a midwife. If you are expecting your first baby or you are wishing to prepare for a different birthing journey than a past experience, then I can teach you how to use the wonderful inner resources, your body and mind already possesses.

Calmbirth encompasses scientifically, evidence-based relaxation, breathing and visualisation techniques that support and enhance a woman’s birthing body. It teaches partners how they too, can feel confident in their role as a support person, so that together you can safely welcome your baby into the world with confidence and calm, no matter how your birthing journey unfolds. Birthing your baby can be the most exhilarating, powerful or joyful experience of your life, which you can look forward to with excitement and joy.
