HypnoBirthing Practitioner  &  Midwife

As a midwife of 30 years I have cared for many women in labour, and this has been complemented over the past 9 years as a HypnoBirthing practitioner.

It has been extremely rewarding to have been witness to many women whom I have taught the HypnoBirthing program, achieve a calm, rewarding birth experience, free of intervention. The natural euphoric feeling post birth is palpable among all those involved in the birthing experience when a woman relaxes into her birthing body, completely trusting in it’s innate ability. Birthing is as it should be.

Learn ways to achieve a natural and gentle birthing experience. Through the HypnoBirthing program I can teach you how to thoroughly relax, let go of fear and tension, and trust in your body’s ability to orchestrate birth with such precision. Once you have learnt these skills, you will be on the road to having the best possible birthing experience.

About Us

Our practice has grown from our desire to provide women and their families with the best care possible throughout their childbearing journey. We believe that it is essential that women have more choices in their maternity care and who provides this care for them. My Midwives Melbourne South East believe it is imperative that women are given the chance to experience one on one midwifery care from the moment they are pregnant, until their baby is six weeks old. By developing a one to one relationship, throughout your maternity care midwives are able to respond to the unique needs and concerns of each mother. Developing a relationship with a known midwife built on trust and respect for one another enables women to feel more empowered and involved throughout their pregnancy, birth and postnatal care.
It is important to us that you feel safe, respected and listened too during your time with us.

After going into the birth of my first son blindly and having a birth that left me feeling traumatised, I wanted to make sure the birth of my second son was positive and left me feeling empowered and confident in my body’s ability. So I signed up to do the HypnoBirthing International Course at 35 weeks pregnant, the subsequent HypnoBirth of my son was such a beautiful liberating experience and such a contrast to my first. I am thrilled to now be able to share this gift with families so they can have their best birthing day just like I did.

I grew up with the stories of my mother’s birth experiences imprinted in my mind.  Suffice to say they weren’t instilling me with confidence & I was petrified of birth.  So when it was time for my husband and I to start our own family, I knew I wanted my own stories to be different.  I wanted to challenge the notion that you must endure pain to become a mother; I didn’t think this had to be my ‘right of passage’ as a woman.

I was studying alternative therapies at the time, so I sought insight into alternate ways of birthing.  Not only was my search for a calm birth experience fueled by wanting a better birth for myself but also by seeking a way for my husband to best support me during birth, given his extreme fear of hospitals.

So together we sought alternatives and it was through the HypnoBirthing program that we gained a new-found confidence about the birthing experience. The use of practical tools and sound knowledge meant my husband felt equipped to help me; he knew he could offer genuine assistance and not just sit in the corner feeling nauseous!

The Hypnobirthing program gave us both a way to release the negative feelings we had towards childbirth and allowed us to enjoy the most incredible, natural, peaceful birthing experience together.

It was this process of helping my husband find a way to be the best birthing partner he could be, plus eradicating the fears that had been preordained, that allowed me to have an incredibly empowering childbirth.  So much so, that I couldn’t help but share the knowledge and methodology with others.  And so from this birth, Acacia Wellness was born.

Like my family, Acacia Wellness has grown into something very special.  My classes are fun and held in warm, relaxed environments; you’ll leave feeling educated, supported and confident.  But it’s not all serious and sensible all the time!!  In fact, conversations often veer off to things non-baby related, but still within my realm of passion – terrible reality TV (The Bachelor in particular, although I feel I need to do 5 years feminist penance after each viewing!), the Kardashians and 90s alternative music (think Radiohead and Nirvana.)

I’m so very passionate about helping families grow through calm beginnings. I look forward to supporting your family through this beautiful time in your lives.
