Practice Name: acumedica
Location of Service: Glenelg (SA)
Hi I’m Dr Cathryn Costa an Acupuncturist, Naturopath, Nutrition lecturer, Child birth educator and certified Hypnobirthing Australia ™ practitioner.
Initially I started out as a Registered Nurse and found my passion in women’s health, natural fertility, pregnancy, birth and beyond as a naturopath and acupuncturist. As an advocate for all things healthy with the backing of evidence based midwifery care, this has led me to undertake an integrative approach to pregnancy and birth. With this I aim to help women and their partner’s achieve their hopes and dreams.
Thus Cathryn brings to her hypnotherapy and hypnobirthing workshops her experience, knowledge, wit and wisdom of different modalities both modern and traditional.
In turn you walk away being informed, educated, excited, confident and empowered to choose the birth that you desire.
As a recent study published in Obstetrics and Gynaecology 2020 confirmed that:
“Women who attend professional childbirth classes during pregnancy had increased odds for successful spontaneous vaginal delivery and lower rates of instrumental delivery”
If you are after a positive birth experience
If you feel I am the right fit for your pregnancy journey and empowered birth
If you would like to take the next step to becoming educated, supported and confident as a mumma
If you are feeling overwhelmed with all the information out there
Then I would love to help you
