Rowena Fleur & Erin
We are 3 Bayside registered Midwives who come together with a strong background of childbirth education and love for our work with women and their families. A combined 46 years of Midwifery experience and 8 beautiful children between us (so far) we share the strong belief that all women should be given the opportunity to have a positive and safe birthing experience.
We know that sometimes the journey can take a different turn – that’s ok. We have each had our own very different birthing experiences to draw on: vaginal breech, emergency Caesarean, normal births after caesareans, water births, home birth and almost didn’t make it to hospital births. Each of these births were equally special and powerful – and a gift to learn from.
We absolutely know, from witnessing hundreds of births, that the knowledge of how truly remarkable our bodies are is so powerful. As is the ability to embrace all the incredible interconnecting systems that contribute to birth. We will empower you to birth without fear – working with your body’s innate abilities – not against them. We will guide you to fully embrace your Birthing Instincts.
“There is a secret in our culture and it’s not that birth is painful but that women are strong,” Laura Stavoe.
The Birth House – Lismore
The Birth House, Lismore, is a home-like setting close to the hospital where women and their families can receive all of their pregnancy, birth, and postnatal care with the Registered Midwives at Holistic Midwifery.
We aim to nurture you throughout the profound continuum that is pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and motherhood.
With a focus on promoting health and wellness we can help you to achieve a positive pregnancy, birthing, and mothering experience. We can support you and your baby through the use of gentle therapies including herbal medicine, nutrition, exercise, massage, and mindfulness techniques.
The MAMA Centre is a private midwifery led practice with holistic health services. Our highly qualified and experienced team are passionate about a holistic approach to pregnancy, birth and beyond. At The MAMA Centre our mission is to fundamentally change the birthing and parenting experience, to one of positivity and empowerment.
Our model of care concentrates not just on the birthing mother and baby, but also on the father, siblings, grandparents and the extended important people who all share this experience of bringing another being into life. We provide individual birthing support throughout South East Queensland with two centres located in East Brisbane and Buderim on the Sunshine Coast.
We believe that with the right support, education and a balanced program of holistic care in place throughout your birthing journey, your birthing experience can and will be an uplifting and happy memory.
Holistic Health Care is a practice in which the whole person is focussed on, physically, emotionally and mentally. At The MAMA Centre, we believe that this approach is key to achieving optimal health and wellbeing for our birthing families and has a deep impact on birthing outcomes.
Our range of holistic health services have been specifically tailored to support the ever changing needs of the birthing mother and baby and are provided by skilled and experienced care providers passionate about life cycle nourishment. Our holistic health services include adult and infant chiropractic care, pregnancy and postnatal massage therapy, naturopathy and nutrition from preconception to post birth, physiotherapy specialising in women’s health, pelvic floor concerns and muscle separation, counselling support services relating to relationships, postnatal depression, anxiety along with other emotional and psychological needs, beauty therapy, lactation consultation and support, pregnancy and mums & bubs yoga and pilates, all available under one roof.
