Lucy is a Registered Midwife from Bath, England. She has a wealth of midwifery experience ranging from working with the low risk midwifery led birthing unit, the high risk obstetric unit and the ante and postnatal wards. She completed her Midwifery training at the prestigious City University in London between 2006 – 2009, and then she went on to do her preceptorship year at a large NHS University Hospital in East London.
Lucy then moved into the Community setting, where she ran a low risk midwifery clinic for pregnancy, provided postnatal care in the home setting and attended many home births alongside the Home Birth Midwifery Team. Having delivered over 500 babies in her ten years as a Registered Midwife, Lucy’s care and compassion has led her to positively impact women and their families.
When an opportunity for an overseas midwifery role arose in 2014, I ventured here to Australia taking a position at the Mater Private Hospital working across all areas of Maternity: Birth unit, the Post Natal ward and the Education Team utilising my diverse range of midwifery skills.
My love for education has grown through my midwifery career, leading me to Calmbirth and becoming a Calmbirth Educator. I have a great interest in the mind- body connection during labour which is the foundation of the Calmbirth teaching and principles.
