Over the past 12 years of clinical practice she has always loved educating, empowering and assisting couples before, during and after their birthing process. Having 3 children and practicing Calmbirth when preparing for her own births, she was totally inspired with all of the incredible information she had just learned she said to her husband,

The person I admire most is…I have been pondering over this question for some time now and there are so many people who inspire me. But I wouldn’t be where I am today as a Calmbirth Educator, if I hadn’t have met Peter Jackson (Calmbirth Founder), when I was preparing for the birth of my first child in 2007. Peter not only cemented what I had already learned as a midwife, but Calmbirth allowed so many elements of change to occur for the greater good for both my husband and I. Walking away from this weekend course 11 years ago I said to myself “I am going to be a Calmbirth Educator one day”, and here I am.
The best advice I ever got in my life was…Good things come in small packages.
