Area’s Serviced: Macarthur, Wollondilly, Liverpool and Surrounds
I am an experienced doula and childbirth educator in south-west Sydney. I personally used hypnobirthing for three of my four births and found it to be empowering, transformative and healing. This is what sparked in me the deep desire to help other mums prepare for birth.
I have supported clients (as a doula) who were using hypnobirthing in their birth preparation and have witnessed the incredible difference that it made to their births. I am very proud to be a Certified Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner, and offer these amazing classes to the women in my area.
I also have a Health Science degree (majoring in Health Promotion) and am currently pursuing a PhD with Western Sydney University. My research is on breastfeeding among young mothers.
I truly believe that birth is meant to be a beautiful, sacred and positive event in our life. Let me show you how with hypnobirthing!
