A little bit about me...
Having grown up in North Fitzroy, I eventually made a six kilometre journey to the north and settled in Preston with my husband and 3 kids.
I trained as a midwife about 10 years ago, while having children of my own. I have worked in the hospital system and as an independent midwife but have recently decided to step back from that role and work with women in a supportive role more like that of a doula. Practicing as a birth attendant, rather than a midwife, frees me up to focus on the aspects of care that are most important to me.
Over the years I have gathered a wealth of experience in supporting women through pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and the early weeks of parenting. As these are profound events in a mother's and baby's life, I feel it is a real honour to be able to work in the field.
