Rowena works with 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.
