Practice Name: Embrace Positive Birth Education
Location of Service: Bellbowrie (QLD)
When I first fell pregnant 10 years ago, my GP asked if I had private health insurance. I did. I was promptly given a referral to the nearest private hospital and advised to choose my obstetrician.
I did not know midwives even existed, let alone that a midwifery continuity of care model is the gold standard in maternity care. Many people still do not know this now well-established, undisputed fact.
I am now a registered midwife, mother to two with one on the way. I am deeply passionate about advocacy and empowering women and their support people to embrace their childbearing journey through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
It is my wish that every couple emerge from their birth experience feeling empowered, confident, safe and well- both physically and emotionally. Sadly, too many women emerge from birth feeling traumatised, bewildered and shocked. I want to be part of the solution, and reach women before they hit the birth suite.
I’ve found Hypnobirthing Australia provides that opportunity with the Positive Birth Program. Comprehensive and evidence-based, it shares the knowledge, tools, and preparation to support women to have the most positive birth possible- not by chance, but by their own informed, empowered choice.
