Welcome to my website, Natural Pregnancy Midwife.com. Writing this website was a project I started after my sister encouraged me. She had been writing her own site for more than 8 years and knew how much I loved writing.
This site has grown out of my passion for natural pregnancy and birth. About me, well my experience with natural pregnancy and childbirth began way back when I was a small child.
My mother had 5 children, following natural pregnancies some of us born at home in London, England. As the eldest I went to her prenatal appointments and was around when she went into labor with the other children. Some of my earliest memories are of the local midwife visiting our home and checking on Mom and the babies. I can still see her in her grey uniform riding her bicycle.
I can even recall the prenatal appointment with the Obstetrician when he tried External Cephalic Version (ECV) to turn my unborn baby sister from breech to head down…..without success! She came into the world breech first when I was 2 years and 2 months old! Now she has six kids of her own, including a son born by the breech at home. All her pregnancies and labors were natural, including the breech birth. Is it any wonder that I became a midwife?
After High school I started an 18 month Mothercraft Nursing (nanny) course in Australia. It was here that I first got to work with newborn babies and young moms. Within a year of completing this course I decided that I wanted to be a midwife. The journey to midwifery was a long and winding road…..ten years later, having studied nursing first and working in different areas of healthcare, I started my Midwifery training in Cornwall, England. I never looked back.
Having the privilege to be ‘with women’ throughout their journey into parenthood is a great gift. I have had many years of professional experience working with pregnant women, Dads and babies. Over the period of my midwifery career I have assisted women birth their babies in hospitals, Birth Centers and home; including breech babies, twins, preterm, postdates, waterbirths and more.
Each birth is unique and special, each baby is a new Human being with their own individual personality to get to know. It’s lovely to keep in touch with a few of ‘My’ moms and babies and see how they are growing up and doing in life, fulfilling their potential as wonderful people.
After many years of enjoyable work as a midwife in England, I am now back in Australia and currently registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Association (AHPRA). As I am still passionate about natural pregnancy, birth and babies, I am putting my years of experience and my creative energies into writing this website. I started this website in August 2011 and it has been growing and expanding with new pages being added regularly since then.

Currently I am a Registered Midwife in Australia helping lots of lovely parents and babies.
