Experience

Before having my own children I worked in Childcare and also in administrative positions. Although I gained many skills in my previous roles I really felt like I came in to my own when I began to learn about pregnancy, labour, birth and babies.

Midwifery Interest

Having experienced private midwifery care for all three of my children I know that it is the best care a woman and her family can receive. When receiving continuity of midwifery care, I believe women are able to make informed choices to plan for the birth they desire and still have the same person who has cared for them in pregnancy, care for them in labour and birth no matter what the choices or outcomes.

I believe when a woman feels safe and nurtured through her labour and birth she can overcome almost anything.

Other interests

My husband and my three boys are the most important people in my life. I also have a very understanding extended family and amazingly supportive friends who have put up with me not turning up to events because I am busy nurturing my dreams.

I am also very passionate about women’s choices, particularly in birth , completed two terms of the National Vice President of Maternity Coalition.
