A bit about me

I am a Coffs Harbour local with an island girl spirit.

First and foremost I am a mother of two beautiful daughters.

I love connecting with mother nature, spending time at the beach or tending to my bees in the garden.

I love supporting women especially during their rites of passage into motherhood.

I learnt Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage in 2006 and that led me to Hawaii where I was introduced to the magical world of birth.

I worked as a home birth midwives assistant and doula and loved supporting women transition into motherhood.

I went on to study midwifery here in Australia and graduated in 2019.

I worked part-time as a registered midwife at a local hospital for a few years and felt unfulfilled and overwhelmed.

I missed real woman-centred care.

I observe birth as a sacred event a woman is given to experience and connect to her capable spirit and her ultimate mother nature.

Her limits are stretched as she embraces her wild, instinctual side, surrendering to the process, with fierce primal power.

Channelling the strength of those that birthed before her, allowing herself to be transformed and ready for the next chapter of her life.

As a mother, a massage therapist & birth witness I offer my time infused with my experience and knowledge to enhance and enrich your experience.

Birth is sacred, lets keep it that way.
