Hi I’m Jess. I am from Ireland, and have been living in Australia since 2016. I am a midwife, HypnoBirthing educator, IBCLC Lactation Consultant, and I am currently studying birth trauma therapy.
I began my training as a midwife in 2009, and have worked in a variety of healthcare models, in a range of countries.
Throughout my career, I have been drawn to the fact that fear can play a negative role in birth. When we feel fear, our minds and our bodies do not work in harmony as they are designed to. Through education, we can unlearn the negative stories that we have been told about birth, and we can learn how our bodies are perfectly designed for birth. I believe that birth preparation is key to a calm, empowered and informed birth.
I am here to help guide you through this amazing, vulnerable, and life changing experience of becoming a parent. My purpose is to help you feel empowered, and to re-learn your true power and knowledge as a birthing person. I have an open mind when it comes to your birthing and breastfeeding preferences, and aim to help you to make informed decisions about these.
I offer both group and private classes. Please enquire about class availability if you do not see dates that suit you.
