     I have been a Registered Midwife since 1998. Originally from England, I moved to Australia in 2002. I live and continue to work on the Gold Coast as a midwife. I have always had a keen interest in ante natal education and have taught preparation for childbirth classes for several years. I first became aware of Calmbirth, whilst caring for women during childbirth, who had undertaken the Calmbirth program. I was amazed and inspired by them. The Calmbirth program is a wonderful course, embracing childbirth in such a holistic way, as I have not seen before. It brings together physiology, simple relaxation techniques & explores individual beliefs to enable the best birth experience. Safety is always paramount, Calmbirth principles compliment every road the birth journey may take, allowing you to remain calm and empowered as your pregnancy, labour & birth unfold. I believe that we all have choices in life, we all come from many different walks of life, and we all have stories to tell and journeys to make. Calmbirth Heartbeats aims to empower you with the skills and the resources you have within, to enable a safe, joyful birth experience. A beautiful beginning for your little loved ones, as they are welcomed into the world, embraced with warmth and love. Please contact me for more information or to arrange a private class in your own home. For Calmbirth Heartbeats classes, health fund rebates may apply.
