My name is Laura. I am a Registered Nurse, Registered Midwife, massage therapist, Certified Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner and budding yoga instructor at Tamara Yoga.
In 2010, I graduated from Curtin University, WA after studying for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
After working as I nurse, I quickly developed a passion for midwifery. In order to develop this passion, I returned to university to complete a Postgraduate Diploma.
With the benefit of having experienced several traumatic births, I now appreciate the importance of women being understood, in control, respected and informed before, during and after the birth. This passion has lead me to discover and enjoy the journey of hypnobirthing, allowing me to give the birthing mother and their partner back the power of control.
I believe my midwifery philosophy and hypnobirthing go hand in hand. I have come across many women who are fearful of childbirth, mostly due to what they see online, stories that they have heard from friends, and some also due to previous personal experiences. I also believe that every woman deserves a calm and empowering birth. By providing women with the knowledge, and their eagerness to embrace hypnobirthing, the mothers and birth partners are provided with techniques to make this a reality.
My goal is to encourage and empower expectant parents to make informed decisions and achieve a calm and positive birth. I aim to teach women the techniques required to release their fears and replace them with endorphin's. Pain is a result of fear and tension and can be diminished through the use of hypnobirthing. I also aim to provide women with the knowledge and tools required for them to relax, stay calm, feel empowered and be in control of their birth.
It is my wish that every woman has the opportunity to experience the pregnancy and birth that she desires.
Let ME teach YOU the techniques for a calm and positive birth.
