Practice Name: Birth, Baby and Beyond
Location of Service: Servicing Footscray and Heidelberg (VIC)
Hi there! My name is Lauren and I am a Registered Midwife, Registered Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse and Hypnobirthing Practitioner Childbirth Educator currently working in a large hospital in the inner city of Melbourne. Outside of this, I love to spend my free time keeping active, enjoying dining out, and spending time with my much-loved family and friends.
I have spent over 10 years of my career working with new mothers where I have come across many common themes whilst debriefing about their birth. These include; ‘I didn’t know what my options were’, ‘was that what was supposed to happen’, ‘I didn’t feel in control’, ‘they didn’t give me a choice’, ‘I had no idea what to expect’, ‘I didn’t know how to cope’, and ‘am I so traumatised from my delivery’.
These are some of the reasons why I am extremely passionate about ensuring that you as an expecting mother have a supported and positive birth experience no matter how or where you deliver, and to ensure you feel safe and feel in control of the decisions that are being made surrounding your pregnancy and birth. As I am a Registered Midwife, be sure that you will receive an up to date, evidence based program, with extended access to myself if you have any specific questions around the remainder of your pregnancy and delivery.
Another added bonus of my qualifications is that you may be eligible for a private heath rebate through your provider.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via phone, my website, email or social media.
Hope you see you at one of my classes soon!
