I am an experienced birth and postnatal doula working for more than 15 years across Melbourne. I am also a proud mother to five children spanning 18 years. Working with families across the spectrum of home births, birth centres and hospitals. I have seen the impact of birthing in fear and anxiety and also the opposite, when women trust in their bodies and find their strength to birth their babies in a calm and centred way . This experience led me to become a Calmbirth Educator and I am so excited to be teaching this course.

I firmly believe that this course allows birth to be an empowering experience for women and their partners regardless of how the birth unfolds.

It gives couples the confidence, where they learn simple tools which will help them journey together through their pregnancy and birth  and ultimately meet their baby.  I am passionate and have been blessed to support many families with newborns. I have seen over the years the impact a positive birth can have on the Mother and her family, allowing the early days to be a positive and happy time .

My hope is that couples feel a deeper connection after the Calmbirth course and this allows them to both to feel confident and prepared for their birth.

I look forward to seeing you in my Calmbirth course, to support you to work together to have a positive birth experience regardless of how you birth your baby.
