Hi and Welcome to expecting families,
My name is Bridie and I have lived in Melbourne for 7 years now.
I am a Registered Midwife and doula, and am currently studying a Graduate Certificate in Sex, Health and Society. I am particularly passionate about women’s health and healing journeys.
My desire to become a Certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner stemmed from the realisation that many pregnant people felt scared, anxious or unprepared about birth and/or transitioning into parenthood. This became more apparent during COVID-19 with little face-to-face contact available for pregnant people. I know many families felt forgotten in the system and are not receiving the education they deserve.
I know that birth can and should be a joyful, empowering and ecstatic part of your life.
I acknowledge that for some people, giving birth has been traumatic. I hope that this program will allow for a transformative and healing experience for subsequent babies, if that is you.
I am committed to teaching childbirth education that is positive and honest – so that you can learn to unlock your primitive powers and feel confident and supported. I absolutely recommend this program to anyone and look forward to meeting you soon.
