I work with families where times of transition and parenthood connect.
I am based in the Eastern Suburbs, Sydney, and work with families both locally and internationally.
My proudest achievements are my 5 daughters. In all their messy splendour. Second to that is my ability to mother them, which is far messier, but occasionally magnificent.
I also happen to be one of the few, incredibly lucky people who work each day doing the thing they love most. I never tire of being invited to share in these moments.
I am often asked as a midwife, “Do you have children?” and “What were your births like?” and here is my answer: Yes, and they were all unique with their own different joys and challenges. These personal experiences only confirmed what I had already learned from caring for a diverse range of families as a midwife – There is no one way to birth and parent a baby, but however you do it, having good information, choices and kindness makes the journey better!
I believe in a strong philosophy of respectful, and compassionate maternity care, advocacy for individualised care, and supporting women and their families as they step into each stage with confidence.
I work clinically as a midwife across all areas in a large tertiary referral hospital. Unfortunately, I am not available to provide midwifery care outside of this setting.
I have been teaching and facilitating childbirth education in one form or another from 2009.
I have enjoyed working privately with couples, facilitating Circles of Women (monthly antenatal group) and small groups with expecting families.
Currently I offer online education for birth partners and expecting parents and am available to tailor private, independent education to you in the Eastern Suburbs, Sydney.
Why independent childbirth education? This means I can can tailor education to your specific needs, and not overwhelm you. Education that will replace your nervousness with excitement. Information that leaves you feeling ready. I do want you to know you have options. I know that having more information means more opportunities.
