I am first and foremost an advocate for women and families. It is my strongest personality trait, and I am compassionate, respectful and kind in my approach. I have more than 30 years’ experience in healthcare, and am a mother of three daughters, a Registered Nurse and Midwife, an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), a trained yoga teacher and have a MSc Health Leadership. I am very proud and excited to be a certified Hypnobirth Australia Positive Birth Program Practitioner.
My firm belief is that all women can have a positive birth experience, and that the four key ingredients to positive birth are:
- Information and education
- A kit of tools and techniques to call upon during your birth
- Authentic and personal support, and
- Belief/trust in your body and your preparation for birth.
By enrolling in the Positive Birth Program, you are gaining a sound understanding of the process of labour and birth and the choices you will have. The tools you gain put you in control, and empowered to make informed, calm choices at every point in your birth experience. The positive birth program is THE comprehensive preparation for birth package that all women deserve.
