It’s been 13 years since I attended my FIRST ever birth! Even though it feels like a lifetime ago, I so clearly remember the details of the labour. It was mind-blowing. I knew a baby was going to be born but it was impossible to imagine. Childbirth is an ‘everyday' miracle but it still took my breath away when she actually entered the world.
I lived my life on-call for 12 years, attending births at all hours of the day and night. I have full respect for people who can live their life on-call. The unknown of birth is exciting but can be such a juggle at times!
After the birth of my youngest nephew a year ago, I decided to take a break from on-call life. I want to be the best Aunty possible and this means regular visits to Bellingen.
These days I’m focussing on pregnancy and postpartum care, calling on my complementary medicine degree and offering support like massage, herbal medicine and nutrition from my studio in Nimbin and at the Lismore Birth House.
Some of you probably know that I’m also studying lactation counselling. This is to complement the postpartum support I give and to help mama’s in the Northern Rivers access the right support.
Because the right support makes ALL the difference.
