How do I view birth? Powerful. Magical. Transformative.
I have dedicated my life to supporting others during pregnancy, birth and early motherhood.
All three of my births have been so different, yet all equally powerful & the most incredible days of my life! My greatest wish is for all women to feel like I did after giving birth, even when birth doesn’t go to plan (as my first birth certainly didn’t!).
Like many women today, before having my own children, I had many fears about birth. Most of these fears had come from other people’s ‘horror stories’ as well as the message society gives us today, that birth is risky and women must be helped or saved from the whole process! But I have always loved natural medicine & believe our bodies have amazing self-healing abilities when given the right environment to thrive. So deep down I could see I truly believed birth was a ‘normal’ physiological process…and so my research on everything ‘birth’ began!
I am so grateful that I knew the benefits of independent childbirth education, hiring a doula & having a known midwife during my first pregnancy as together this pulled me through the intensity of a hospital induction back labour with only gas & air!
I studied the Hypnobirthing AustraliaTM program during my second pregnancy & was completely blown away by the results. Listening to the self-hypnosis tracks each night before bed in my third trimester completely put my mind at ease. Then during my surges, the breathing & visualisation techniques were so effective that I did not experience any ‘pain’ at all until transition…my midwife almost missed the birth!
Educating women so they too can face their fears & step into their power during pregnancy & birth is what fires me up most in life, and I am so honoured to be walking this path.
I have so many things to share with you.
