Practice Name: Your Power – Your Birth
Location of Service: Alderley, Brisbane (QLD)
Hello and Congratulations on taking the first step towards a positive birth experience for you and your baby.
My background is in international education with two decades of experience in training. However, since personally experiencing birth I was drawn to a career as a Hypnobirthing Australia TM practitioner. My experiences of birth come from 2 opposite ends of the spectrum. #1 – a highly medicalised birth (c-section) and #2 – a powerful natural birth (hypnobirth) and feel I have a profound understanding and appreciation of both.
My passion lies in allowing every mother-to-be the opportunity to truly know that it’s possible to give birth in a calm and empowering way regardless of any past experiences or what she has been conditioned to believe. My desire is to help women trust deeply in the innate wisdom of their bodies, to understand how the brain plays an integral role in the birth process. And at the same time, to appreciate the wonders of the medical system.
I gave birth to my two babies in my early 40’s. By having a caesarean and then a VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean) I’m now acutely aware of available options and choices for parents in either of these situations.
By arming women and their partners with knowledge and tools to confidently navigate their childbirth journey and to understand the physiological processes of the body during labour and birth, leaves both mummas and partners feeling empowered. They are then able to make informed decisions resulting in positive births.
The labour and birth experience are imprinted on a woman and her child for the rest of their lives and it is so exciting to know that this process can be powerful and positive, no matter the circumstances.
The birth of a child is a wonderous event. In your preparation to give birth it would be a joy and privilege to offer you vital learning tools, healthy encouragement, wisdom and insights and much laughter.
