Experience

I graduated in 2019 and received a graduate year in a public hospital however, life had other plans for me as I fell pregnant with my first child. In my final year of university, I was lucky enough to have had a 12-month placement with My Midwives Melbourne which was the most incredible opportunity. This experience enabled me to work alongside midwives who valued trusting and individualised relationships with women and their families throughout the perinatal period and supported me in shaping my own midwifery craft. I have witnessed first-hand the benefits of one-on-one midwifery care both as a student midwife and a birthing woman myself and since having my own child and experiencing the journey into motherhood I feel I have added a whole other dimension to my midwifery knowledge and practice.

Midwifery Interests

I am interested in all aspects of midwifery, but am incredibly passionate about continuity-of-care and the benefits it offers women and their families as they go through life-changing transitions in life. I love creating trusting relationships with women and families and supporting them in navigating through the perinatal period. Education is key I believe and I enjoy working alongside women to offer education so they feel empowered and supported to make informed choices that works for them as each pregnancy, birth and woman are all so unique. I love connecting with women and their families and feel privileged to be a part of their journeys (and of course meeting their little bundles of joys when they arrive!).

Other Interests

My family is my world. Most of the time you will find me crawling around on the floor making myself look all kinds of silly to make my little boy smile and laugh. My family also get together quite a lot and seeing everyone together with all our little ones makes my heart sing! I also love to cook when I get the time and I secretly do enjoy some corny reality TV now and then.
