My name is Mel and I am a mother of two grown boys, or should I say men, and know the excitement, intensity and exhilaration birth presents. I have been working as a Registered Midwife for more than 5 years, and currently work for Queensland Health at the local Toowoomba Hospital and I’m passionate about creating a positive birth culture. It is a privilege and honour to witness the strength and determination of women, supported by their loved ones, as they birth their baby, and welcome them into the world.
Becoming a Calmbirth® Educator has given me the ability to help you replace fear with confidence and anxiety with knowledge. I love empowering women and couples to achieve what they never thought possible. I am excited to provide you with a holistic and thorough childbirth education that encompasses your birthing needs on an emotional and physical level. I look forward to empowering you on your journey to parenthood.
