Hi and Welcome to all expecting families,
My name is Bridie and I have lived in Melbourne for approximately 10 years now.
I am a Registered Midwife, currently working in midwifery group practice. I am passionate about families receiving continuity of care and love seeing first hand what a difference that can make throughout peoples pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey.
My desire to become a Certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner stemmed from the realisation that many pregnant people feel scared, anxious or unprepared about birth and/or transitioning into parenthood. This became more apparent during COVID-19 with such little face-to-face connections available for pregnant people. I know so many families still feel forgotten in our system and are not receiving the honest or positive education they deserve.
Birth can and should be a joyful, empowering and ecstatic experience – whether you’re welcoming your first or fifth baby! I understand many people have had traumatic experiences of birthing too, and if that sounds like you, know that this program is the perfect addition for your journey. Birth can be transformative and healing too.
I look forward to meeting you!
