According to the Australasian Birth Trauma Association,
1 in 3 women in Australia identify their births as traumatic.
This will ONLY improve as a result of more women actively preparing for birth by educating and advocating for themselves, trusting their bodies, and ensuring they receive continuity of care from pregnancy through to postpartum from a carefully curated support team.
In my spare time I like to indulge in hot baths, delicious food, good company, world music and cinema, camping holidays, open spaces and dancing myself into a trance with the pizzica, an ancient ritualistic and healing dance from the south of Italy.
I also facilitate birth circles in which you can share your experience through storytelling and weaving.
Get in touch with me if you'd like to find out more!!
I look forward to meeting you!!
“Contrary to myth, for instance, intrinsic physical characteristics only rarely interfere with the capacity to give birth. In other words, your pelvis is probably big enough for vaginal birth. Nearly every woman’s is. Mental attitudes and emotions, on the other hand, interfere with the ability to give birth far more than is generally understood.”
