About / Bio
If you are wanting an informed and satisfying birth you have come to the right place! Birth and Beyond all about supporting you to achieve your birthing goals through a range of comprehensive childbirth classes and doula support options. I am passionate about reducing the fear that many women feel coming up to their baby’s birth by providing gentle, positive and continuous support to women and their families through pregnancy, birth and beyond.

I decided to leave my career as a high school teacher to become a birth doula and childbirth educator after experiencing first hand the difference that continual labour support makes to the birth process. As a mother of two young boys, I understand the need for women to be able to make informed and evidence-based choices about their bodies and to be able to advocate for themselves. Birth is an extraordinary and multifaceted process and one course of action is not always the best for every woman. Whatever a woman’s goal, I am there to support her choice, physically, emotionally and educationally! I am passionate about supporting mothers to have satisfying birth experiences, no matter how or where the baby ends up coming into the world, and ditching the fear and negativity surrounding birth.

I am certified as a Birth Doula through Childbirth International (CBD(CBI)) and I am a also a qualified teacher (BAGradDipEd) with 7 years teaching experience, 5 years teaching in schools and 2 years teaching Childbirth Education. I am a member of CAPEA (Childbirth and Parenting Educators of Australia).
