Why prepare for Birth?

How I can help you in preparing for your baby's arrival.

Why prepare for birth?

Australian women are having shorter antenatal appointments, and less prenatal and postnatal education. 

In addition, Australian hospitals are giving new mums less time to recover and are sending them back home quicker.

This may be ok if you’re a second or third time mum.  But as a first time parent, it’s no wonder mum’s and dads are feeling nervous and unsupported in their first weeks.

Labour is not the time for lengthy discussions or questions about risks and benefits of the choices offered to you.

These choices can affect your health mentally, and, your physical recovery, so it’s important to know when you’re making a decision that you know what you’re agreeing to, or deciding against.

It’s also important to know your rights in hospital and be able to advocate for your decisions.

So how prepared do you want to be for birth and baby? Do you want to feel scared, lost and confused? Or, empowered, in tune with your baby and less stressed.

My Birth Experiences

I have three children myself, three beautiful boys who bring craziness and love to my every day.  The vast differences in my experience of their births that led me to becoming a HypnoBirth Educator. While my first two births were quite similar in many regards on paper, my second birth should have been a piece of cake, my feelings and how I coped and felt as a mum was a very different story.

I had always known that women needed to find a good head space from my work as a midwife in birthing suites, but after my second birth I realised it is not as simple as knowing what to expect and what you need to do.

Hence the my journey in educating families in HypnoBirthing and Mindful Birthing journeys began.

I have since had my third baby, Murphy, a beautiful hypno-home-water birth. Read about it below.
It is this birth that was proof to me of the power of preparation, mentally and physically is what is needed for your perfect birthing experience.

And this is what I teach to all my students.  This is why I teach. 
So all mothers can experience this joyful time without fear and worry.
My Mission

Providing individualized evidence based pregnancy, birth and postnatal information for women and their families in the format they want and need now.


I want all women to know how powerful they are, that they are in control of their experience and informed consent is their right.
