Experience

I knew I wanted to be in the midwifery profession from the time I was 14 years old. I studied nursing first and worked at the RBWH in gynaecology and the special care nursery. Once qualified as a midwife, I worked in both private and public tertiary hospitals, until landing my dream job as a continuity midwife at My Midwives in 2018.

midwifery interest of employee

Midwifery Interest

I have been fascinated by all things birth since I discovered the book “Where Do Babies Come From” when I was 6 years old. I had also always loved hearing my mother’s 4 birth stories. I’ve always believed that midwifery is a ‘calling’ and I feel privileged that it found me. I don’t think there is anything more powerful than watching a woman rock her birth - however that may be. I’ve been blessed to have My Midwives care in my own pregnancies and part of working here for me, is a chance to ‘pay it forward’ for the women I care for. My goal is to normalise birth. To share the beautiful and sometimes challenging stories. To ensure that no matter the birth journey, women feel safe, supported and fully informed.

Personal Interest

My little family and I enjoy travelling- be it trips overseas to favourite places such as Japan, or a quiet weekend in Stanthorpe. I also really love baking when I get the chance!
