How Can I Help You?
How can I provide all of this? Firstly,...
I am trained as a family physician (GP)
I have completed my training to practice GP-obstetrics, caring for healthy mothers and babies
I have also attended births at home, and I am also a mother of four!
My first baby was born in 1990 and my last in 2000, all such wonderful experiences at home that I subsequently changed career, writing two editions of my book “Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering“ in 2005 and 2009.
I have also written numerous articles for international publications including:
- Mothering magazine (US)
- Natural Parenting, (Australia)
- MIDIRS Midwifery Digest (UK)
- Midwifery Today (US)
- Pathways to Family Wellness (US)
- The Mother (UK)
- Juno (UK)
- and many other magazines
I also lecture to parents and professionals in Australia, US, UK and around the world on gentle, natural childbirth and how to maximise its benefits.
I have a special interest in the hormones of labour and birth and my detailed scientific report Hormonal Physiology of Childbearing was published by Childbirth Connection (US) in January 2015.
I want every mother, baby, father and family to have the best possible start.
As both a medical doctor and a mother, I have looked closely at the medical research in important areas such as:
- What is a healthy diet for pregnancy?
- Who is the best carer in pregnancy, labour and birth?
- What is the best place to give birth?
- What about screening and treatment for group B strep?
- Is ultrasound safe, and what about keepsake ultrasounds?
- What are the benefits and risks of labor drugs and interventions?
- How to get the best start with breastfeeding
In my Gentle Natural Birth 9 Month All Access program, you can draw upon all of my knowledge and resources, and get the accurate, up to date information that will help you to make the choices that are right for you.
I've also experienced the challenges and joys of gentle, natural birth and mothering myself, and I know from my own experience just how challenging birth and mothering can be- and also how rewarding. I also know that a great start at birth can give a head-start in mothering too!
I also know that sometimes interventions are needed for the wellbeing of mothers and babies, and that it’s important for you to be involved and empowered in any situation.
I am passionate about informed choices for you, your baby, your partner and family. With education and awareness, you can be empowered to have the safest and most pleasurable birth, even when interventions are needed.
As GNB 9 Month All Access Pass holders, you will get instant access to all of my Gentle Natural Birth resources for parents and professionals, including all of my videos for different stages of pregnancy.
PLUS… you will also get access to my webinars on topics that matter to you, such as ultrasound, prenatal testing for Down syndrome, cord blood banking, screening for group B strep and many more topics. All of my webinars are recorded so you can watch when it suits you. Right now we are upgrading our webinars and will be adding new material in the near future.
Audios & Podcasts
As well as all of this, we will be launching audios and podcasts in 2016 with an exciting line-up of speakers on topics such as fatherhood, yoga, nutrition, newborn consciousness and much more. Even better, you can listen to all of these at your leisure!
Gentle Natural Birth 9 Month All Access Pass
Normally, all of these resources are only available to Gentle Natural Birth Professionals for $227 per year or $47 per month. However, I've created this special package for you, so you can access all of my content for your entire pregnancy. This includes direct access to me via my dedicated Facebook Group* to ask questions related to best practice maternity care, and my research.
*Please note that I cannot provide personal advice about your pregnancy via this group. You must consult with your own maternity care providers for your specific concerns. You can, however, ask questions about where to find resources and evidence about different pregnancy-related issues, questions about my research into the hormonal physiology of childbearing, questions about webinars and information in the program, and general questions about pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting.
