Megan is a Registered Nurse, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and Medicare – Endorsed Midwife with over 20 years experience providing comprehensive, holistic and evidence-based care to families. During this time Megan has gained extensive experience in providing pregnancy, postnatal, newborn and breastfeeding support to guide many women and families to succeed in early parenting. This experience has been attained in a variety of settings throughout Adelaide, including country, private and large metropolitan hospitals as well as in continuity midwifery models.
Megan is a Childbirth Educator and holds a Certificate in Perinatal Mental Health as well as skills in acupressure, gentle myofascial release and is a certified HypnoMothering Practitioner.
After the birth of her child, Megan realised the fragmented care within the constraints of hospitals/obstetric care meant that often women and families were not set up to succeed in birth or beyond. Women were scared and coerced into decisions that they were poorly educated to make. The huge void in postnatal support meant women were poorly equipped for success. She realised that women needed to feel nurtured, listen to and supported to develop the skills necessary to grow and thrive in pregnancy and in their new parenting role.
Megan began her successful private practice- Adelaide Lactation Consultants & Midwifery to change the way care is offered by supporting and enriching families on their journey. A flexible approach to midwifery care means women can find a care option to suit them! Megan believes that Hypnobirthing will be a valuable addition to her care options available.
