With a love of children & people my resume was always based on my work in Early Childhood & Community services, Disability support work, Aged care & Community care. My hobbies & interests always consisted of the alternative world & holistic health. Even before my first pregnancy I was instinctually aware of my bodies birthing abilities & the importance of breastfeeding & natural parenting.
It was always natural for me, to connect with people with like minded interests & to have connected with woman seeking the support, knowledge, comfort, empowerment & nurturing I was able to provide. With this I would find myself sharing my skills & supporting woman during the most precious times of their lives. It wasn't until the pregnancy of my third child, that I realised I was looking for something more for myself & for my family that was hard to find in the area in regards to support, education & services that I myself desired, until I discovered a local "Doula." I learnt first hand, that the profession of a Doula is hard to describe as her services are something that are not only provided but are " experienced & felt". Suddenly I understood & discovered the profession that gives woman back what was always naturally, rightfully & instinctual theirs to claim.
I was overcome with the realisation that I was & had always been a Doula at heart & I decided to turn my passions into a career, studying through the Internationally recognised
"Childbirth International" as a Birth Doula, Certifying as a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist through IPEN & certifying as a Hypno-Babies Hypno-Birthing Doula with Hypno-Babies.
It was in supporting woman aswell as their birthing partners through their pregnancies & birthing times that had such a great understanding of birth & their own abilities to use tools that are natural & instinctual to us all, that lead me to become a Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner. I had a desire to be able to provide classes so that more woman could access there own natural abilities, go into their birthing time truly understanding their own bodies, feeling confident, supported, knowledgeable, calm & with the ability to tap into their own skills & tools as they desire whilst feeling supported & understood & provided for by their support persons & care providers. As a hypnoBirthing Australia Practitioner I began hosting Childbirth Education Classes in Macarthur along with my dear friend & fellow Doula Christa Buckland whom I also sat along side with in the establishment of Doula Network Australia.
Now that I have done the job of introducing myself & how I became,
