I believe that pregnancy, birth and parenting are some of the most important times in a woman’s life. I feel privileged to be a part of this intensely private yet powerful time for each woman. I believe care should be holistic, relevant and woman centred. When informed and supported women feel empowered to trust their instincts and gain the confidence in decision making for themselves and family.
Working as a midwife for thirty seven years, across all areas of care with a particular focus on continuum has brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to this role. My passion for supporting new mothers on their breastfeeding journey led me to become a board certified lactation consultant sixteen years ago. Mama & Me Midwifery started with a vision, to offer support to many more women throughout the Brisbane South, Beenleigh and Ipswich areas, offering individualized care in the post partum period.
As a mother of seven and grandmother of four, my empathy and understanding of the challenges of new motherhood and family adjustment enhances my professional practice.

When women become pregnant and birth their beautiful newborn, it is not uncommon fir their lives to unravel – to one full of mystery, inconsistence and wonder. My greatest passion is walking beside the new mother, listening to their questions and providing understanding and supportive advice during these exciting life-changing times. I know no single approach is the right one for each new mother and her baby and through my extensive midwifery, nursing and lactation qualifications I provide flexible, individual and a rich sharing of information and supportive care. Being a midwife is not only a joy but a privilege. Presence with women through their journey into parenthood and beyond is overwhelmingly rewarding. As a co-founder of Mama & Me Midwifery, with endorsed eligibility and countless years of midwifery within continuum models of care both in Brisbane and remote and rural settings, my passion is being realized by providing an additional option to all new mothers. No time is less or more magical. However, Mama & Me Midwifery has chosen to concentrate our business supporting new families unravelling the mysteries of their newborn adapting to the outside world and their families adjusting to the presence of their special little bundle. As a wife of 40 years, mother of 4 and grandmother of 10, life is full of prosperity. My family give me the unconditional love and support to enable me to quench my thirst of providing passionate midwifery care to new families commencing their life journey together.
