Midwife / Lactation Consultant
I am a Midwife and Lactation Consultant who joined Coast Life Midwifery in 2022 from the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne. I would love to offer continuity of care for the antenatal and postnatal package, Lactation Consultations and group education. You may also see me as a support midwife at home births.
I completed my Midwifery degree at the University of Canberra and joined the Royal Women’s Hospital on its highly sought after graduate program, working across all areas of midwifery.
Working in a large and extremely busy hospital, especially during the pandemic was challenging. I was in constant awe of the skills of our midwifery team and the resilience of the women and families I supported.
My passion is midwifery continuity of care.
As a continuity midwife I love building relationships with women and their families and sharing evidence based information that empowers women to be the decision makers in their journey to motherhood”.
I became a certified Lactation Consultant in 2016 and worked as a Lactation Consultant and Breastfeeding educator in private practice and hospitals in Australia and the USA.
I love helping women to overcome breastfeeding challenges to achieve their personal breastfeeding goals. I am fascinated by and passionate about the benefits of breastfeeding and the constantly evolving evidence about the wonders of breastmilk.
I am very excited to join the Coast Life Midwifery community!
