I am a Nurse, Midwife, and Childbirth Educator, who is passionate about empowering and supporting women during their pregnancy, birth, and beyond. I believe in birth and I believe in women, in their power, strength and abilities. I have the privilege to witness this every day.
My background is completing a Bachelor of Nursing in 2007, Diploma of Midwifery in 2013 working in a hospital setting for 14yrs before transitioning into private midwifery practice in 2020, pioneering home birthing services to Central West NSW with the establishment of private midwifery services. I am also a certified Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner.
I believe pregnancy and birth is such an important time in a woman’s life. This is the time when a woman becomes a mother, and a baby is welcomed into the world. It should also be a time where the woman is treated with respect, support, care, and love. Nurtured and held through this transformative life event.
I value personalised hands-on prenatal, birthing and post-natal support. My goal is to give women and their family the attention and knowledge needed to make informed decisions about your pregnancy, labour and postnatal care. I love working with expecting mothers and their families throughout the experience of bringing new life into this beautiful world. I favour safe, low-intervention methods, and do not rush the labour process.
My passion is bringing midwifery care back into community settings and home birth. My desire is for women to be well equipped with the knowledge and understanding of their birthing options, be involved in the decisions regarding their care and make informed choices based on current evidence. Creating positive and empowering birth experiences, so that we may have positive and empowering parents, partners, family, and friends.
When I’m not supporting women, you will find me spending time with my husband and 4 children enjoying the beach, fishing, and swimming. I enjoy being active, cooking nutritious food for the family and reading.
I look forward to getting to know you and your family with the Coast Life Community.
