Midwife and Mother of 4 Children


Hello & welcome to my website. When I was 10 my mother had my youngest sister and I helped mum care for her, this gave me loads of practical skills and set me on my midwifery path. I loved babies and small children and knew my destiny lay in that direction. I have been a midwife now for over 30 years. I have experience working both in the home and hospital setting.


I am Medicare eligible and am endorsed to be able to prescribe and order my own blood tests and scans. I have had midwife care for the birth of my 4 children, one in a birth centre and 3 at home. 


My other passion is breastfeeding and I am a qualified lactation consultant with decades of experience in this area. I am experienced in waterbirth and helping women have a vaginal birth after a caesarean. My other interests include aromatherapy, massage and homeopathy for use in pregnancy and childbirth. 


I am passionate about working with pregnant women and their families. Having a baby is a fabulous, exciting adventure and I am very privileged to go with women on that journey.

Please note we do not have professional indemity insurance (PII) for labour & birth. Midwives have a regulatory requirement to have PII but are unable to obtain the product due to a world wide shortage of  PII for midwives. Therefore midwives in private practice have been provided with an exemption for homebirth until December 2021.

The midwives working with the practice have PII for antenatal and postnatal care with MIGA. Insurance policies are issued by Medical Insurance Australia Pty Ltd
