I have been a midwife for 10years and am still very active in my local hospital, currently working between the ward and birth suite. I am involved with a number of home birth midwives as well providing support and constantly learning where able. I am a mum of 3 little boys and it was their births that reinforced the need for education and preparation for birth in pregnancy, not only physically but mentally and emotionally. I have been a private educator for a number of years now and love the connections and beautiful results I get working with families.
How I work with parents
I help parents take back their birth, understanding how their body works, how to assist rather than resist their natural processes. I involved partners and educate them how to be an awesome support not just an occasional help. I provide you with the skills to take control and responsibility for yourself, your baby and your birth.

She is also a Table Educator at SOT seminars, teaching other Chiropractors these amazing techniques and sharing her knowledge.
Jana has a holistic attitude towards health and health care, and utilises many techniques to improve your overall health and well being, not just to fix a sore back. There is so much more to Chiropractic!

Pregnancy Yoga Classes
Yoga is both safe and beneficial during the 2nd and 3rd Trimesters of pregnancy.
As the meaning of yoga (Union, Yoke) suggests, it is the unity of body, mind and spirit. In pregnancy, this ‘joining’ or union’, the intertwining of mother and baby and the intricate bond and connection that lasts a lifetime; is never more apparent.
What To Wear
Jen is a birth photographer, videographer and doula servicing the Lockyer Valley, Ipswich and Toowoomba regions. She has been involved in birth work since 2011, and has attended over 50 births at homes, birth centres and hospitals in central and south east Queensland. Jen is a storyteller, and her work aims to show every facet of birth – the intensity, the determination, the support and love, the ectasy and everything in between – in a raw, real and powerful way.
She cares deeply about women, and babies, and sees birth as a life-changing and sacred process.
