Practice Name: Birthing Bella
Location of Service: Townsville (QLD)
As a registered nurse, midwife and maternal and child health practitioner, I care for families through providing safety, security and understanding through the complex and sometimes daunting experience that is childbirth and early parenthood.
On a personal level, I have often found myself struggling to come to terms with the highly medicalised, unintuitive and business-like path birth has taken in Australia. Through the media and health professionals instilling the subliminal message that birth is a high-risk event to be managed and feared, we have lost the ability to trust the incredibly clever process that is natural birth.
As a certified Hypnobirthing Australia practitioner, I offer women and their partners the opportunity to explore birth as a natural life experience. Equipped with a balance of information around natural techniques, normal birth physiology and the art of deep relaxation, parents and their babies can look forward to a safe, positive and gentle birth experience.
