Hi there! My name is Lauren and I am a Registered Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse, Registered Midwife and Childbirth Educator currently working in a large Tertiary 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 working with new mothers postnatally 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’.
These are some of the reasons why I am extremely passionate about ensuring that you as a 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.
Feel free to contact me via phone, my website or social media if you want to have a positive birth and want to learn more!
