Life has been wonderfully full and busy for me since our baby boy joined us. He's a healthy, active 5 year old now. This is him with one of his big sisters. They were very proud of this go cart which they built themselves. (And then terrified me tearing down the steep and bumpy driveway in it.)
During 2016, I am available only to attend homebirths within an hour's drive of my home in Warburton. So if you are planning a local-area homebirth, please do contact me.
If you are seeking birth support further afield, for your planned home, birth centre or hospital birth, please scroll down the right-hand side column to find "Seeking a Midwife" and "Seeking a Doula". These private midwives and doulas are wonderful women who are an asset to your birth team. I suggest you chat with several and choose the person you feel most comfortable with.
Please feel free to email or phone me if you are having any problems finding someone to support you through your pregnancy, birth and post-natal time. I have an email list of midwives and doulas who I recommend and who are available to take clients.
I would also like to introduce to you my new venture:
Blissful Herbs - nurturing herbs for body & soul.
This is a range of herbal bath sachets and herbal teas to add nurture and specialness to every phase of a woman's life cycle, from menarche to the child-bearing years to menopause.
The Post Natal Bliss bath herbs are especially awesome, I used them myself after Rory's birth, they speed the healing, feel so good and smell divine.
Please come and browse!
Also on this site are all kinds of articles and links to inform and support your child-bearing journey, which are free for you to access, print out, and share.
You can find me on Facebook here and here
