Hello, and congratulations on your journey into empowered pregnancy and birth.

Like most people, I grew up with the stories, visions and memories of painful labour and birth trauma passed down through generations, embedded in ancestral lineage, and portrayed on screen.

But I never accepted those stories as my own. It wasn’t my truth. And now I’m blessed to be supporting other empowered birthing families as we collectively shift the narrative of birth.

ABOUT ME

As a nutritionist and holistic health practitioner, I spent years studying and practicing in fertility, reproductive health and postpartum repletion, witnessing the transformative effects of food and herbs as medicine, in creating happy and healthy bellies, babies and beyond.

When my own calling into motherhood came, I knew firmly my pregnancy and birth would be on my terms. I surrounded myself with a circle of wise women who’d walked before me, and immersed myself into an informed and empowered wild pregnancy and home birth journey.

As well as prioritising gut health, nutrition, herbs, homeopathics, chiropractic, yoga, meditation, journalling and attending womens circles, I was blessed to cross paths with a salt of the earth doula just weeks before learning I was pregnant, who encouraged me to reach deep within myself and discover I already had all I needed to bring my baby earthside. Admittedly, that was a belief I battled to embody, until it came true.

From the moment I reached down to pick up my baby from the birth pool in our bedroom, and in the moments after as I returned from the stars to my own body, I heard the call to continue my path deeper into birthwork, to support other families wanting to reject the fear based narrative and disrupt the system to write their own stories, and birth on their terms.

I am now honoured to be certified and working under the title of BirthWrite as a Doula, Hypnobirthing Australia practitioner, Optimal Maternal Positioning practitioner and parent educator, Childbirth Educator, and ATMS accredited Nutritionist practicing in holistic health support for preconception, pregnancy, postpartum and lactation, as well as coeliac disease, gut health, food allergies and intolerances as The Gluten Free Nutritionist.

HOW I SUPPORT YOU

What all this means is I can support you through every step of this journey, including:

-Optimising fertility and reproductive health naturally with holistic nutrition support during preconception and trying to conceive
-Providing natural health and nutrition support during pregnancy and postpartum
-Providing access to pathology testing, nutritional supplements and probiotics
-Teaching you hypnobirthing and Optimal Maternal Positioning techniques to support your dream of a natural labour and birth and reduce the need for interventions
-Helping you and your birth partner feel confident and excited about your impending birth
-Exploring and understanding your options in labour and birth with independent childbirth education classes
-Supporting you to interview and find your dream birth team and allied pregnancy care practitioners
-Create your birth plan, prepare for all possibilities, and journey into the spiritual side of the powerful transition into birth and parenting
-Supporting you before, during and after birth

I am also on a never-ending learning journey, and am currently completing my Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, further doula training with Orgasmic Birth founder Debra Pascali-Bonaro, and expanding on my inclusivity training for supporting LGBTIQ+ community.

I provide inclusive services and a safe space for all pregnant and birthing people, as well as those trying to conceive, or journeying through the transformational postpartum time. I work with a lot of homebirth and free birth families, but also support those making an informed choice to birth in a hospital or birth centre.
