Practice Name: The Mustard Seed Midwife
Location of Service: Gold Coast, Currumbin, QLD
Hi, my name is Frankie van der Sluis.
I am a qualified midwife, wife and mother to two adult children. I have always enjoyed providing childbirth education and this has been a big part of my career working in Midwifery Group Practice.
I was first introduced to the concept of hypnobirthing as a student midwife. Immediately I recognized how powerful the mind is and how a birthing woman using self-hypnosis can journey through her labour with incredible control.
This led me to my discovery of Hypnobirthing Australia’s ‘Positive Birth Program’. As I witnessed women who had attended the program go on to have an empowered and positive birth experience, I decided that it was time for me to become a practitioner myself and integrate this into my practice as a midwife.
I am passionate about supporting women’s choices in their maternity care and helping them to achieve a safe and as natural as possible normal physiological birth. I hope to see a change in how women and their families view birth, without fear and with the feelings of self-determination, autonomy as they welcome their baby’s earthside.
