Practice Name: Laura Gough Counselling & Support Services
Location of Service: Aldinga Beach, SA
Hello I’m Laura. I believe that women have the innate power to birth a child. I will help you discover this during your pregnancy and birth.
I look forward to sharing information on physiology of birth. Learning to trust what our bodies are designed to do, and understanding the interaction between the body and mind. Utilising your toolkit, drawing upon supports and being empowered increases chances for a positive birth experience.
I am a Hypnobirthing mother myself. I was able to utilise the techniques of the Positive Birth Program and calmly adjusted to the turns my labour took. I delivered a healthy baby. I look back on my birthing experience with such positivity.
I am experienced at listening to women’s needs and supporting families, having worked in my local community for over 10 years. My background includes working with vulnerable children, implementing early intervention opportunities for families facing challenges. I hold a Master’s degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. I have undertaken further study in Mental Health, Aboriginal Cultural Training and Change Management.
My aim is to support you through education to make informed decisions, to achieve your goals for your ideal positive birth.
