My name is Tamara Goodwin. I am a proud and passionate Calmbirth® Educator and Midwife. I currently work as a Clinical Midwife Specialist at Goulburn Valley Health Shepparton, whilst also supporting women and their birth partners to prepare for pregnancy, labour and birth through the services of Essence of Birth. My learning and practice through Calmbirth® has only enriched my belief in the normal and natural beauty of labour and birth, whilst enhancing my efforts to provide a very level, yet holistic approach to preparation for this beautiful and life changing journey.
I believe that each woman and her partner deserve the opportunity to be well informed, to feel empowered, and to have confidence in their labour and birth journey. I appreciate that knowledge and positive preparation, supports good understanding, enhances trust and reduces fear that is all too often associated with labour and birth. I feel privileged to be in a position that allows me to work with expectant parents, as they learn about the innate skills they possess to support them on their journey to a positive birth experience and welcoming their baby calmly and confidently. The knowledge and skills they take from their Calmbirth® experience is assured to support them throughout the remainder of their pregnancy, on the day of welcoming their baby, and beyond.
