I provide a range of holistic postnatal supports so you can experience the lifelong benefits of supported transformation. Services are delivered as part of a premium package. All packages include the following:
As an active member of the local breastfeeding community for several years, I personally connect you with support groups, breastfeeding counsellors and lactation consultants. I provide in-home breastfeeding support for my premium clients for up to a year. I also gift you membership to the Australian Breastfeeding Association, which includes a subscription to Essence magazine.
I empower your partner with the tools he or she needs to fully support your breastfeeding journey. This is a vital piece of the puzzle, as the research indicates that partner support is the single biggest factor in a new mum’s breastfeeding success.
Although I have a wealth of evidence-based breastfeeding resources at my fingertips, I try to avoid overwhelming newborn mothers with a lot of technical information. I am a believer that when mothers feel supported to experiment, make mistakes, and learn their babies, they intuitively adopt the most effective techniques.
When I visit you at home, I offer a shoulder or foot rub with essential oils. I also teach you self-massage and baby massage, using a combination of safe, gentle strokes.
Many ancient postnatal traditions highlight the importance of nourishing, warm, easy-to-digest meals for new mothers. I prepare meals in your home for you, or we can cook together when you feel like it. Feel free to share your favourite recipes with me so I can recreate them! Or, choose some delicious postpartum meals from Nourishing Newborn Mothers or The First Forty Days.
Practical support & community mapping
I take care of housework & help you with household admin while I’m supporting you in your home. But even more importantly, I help you develop and set up efficient systems. When I’m not with you, I want you to feel confident and on top of things. I also give you my inside knowledge of the best local services so you can outsource tasks or access community resources. When necessary, I refer you to specialists or support you to access

Bellybinding is an ancient practice where the mother’s abdomen is wrapped in a length of fabric. Most mums find this feels really good, like a warm hug. If traditional bellybinding is not for you, another option is the tube-style bellybind, which takes literally three seconds to put on and also feels great!
Birth Story Medicine
Birth Story Medicine is an uplifting guided personal-growth process that brings insight, resolution, and healing after a difficult or disappointing birth. It has been continually refined over decades of listening to birth stories and through the vision, observations, and experiments of Pam England (my teacher and the author of Birthing From Within) and her creative adaptations and integration of others’ work.
Are you ready for the next step?
If you’re interested in working with me, the first step is to attend my workshop so we can get to know each other a little. All workshop attendees have an opportunity to book a free consultation, and we can go from there. If it turns out that we are a good fit, I would love to support you on your journey to motherhood.
