Transcribed from NOW Magazine Australia Autumn issue p22
My inspiration began on my journey into motherhood when i crossed the bridge from intense fear to complete peace and discovered my own power and inner resources i didn’t know i had. this not only resulted in two natural drug free births with my beautiful girls but also a very empowered mummy ready to take on the world.
Afterwards i felt compelled to empower other women to walk the same path. it was an inspired idea that just struck me and spoke to me so loudly i had to listen – i needed to give women a new possibility of how positive and empowering birth could be. that single decision changed the course of my life.
I have since become committed to supporting women to give birth as nature intended and overcome their fears about birthing in a world that has become so medicalised and fearful of something so perfectly natural. it was the best decision i have made and i have not looked back. my vision has grown and evolved to now creating “a positive birth revolution.”
My newly released book, A Modern Woman’s Guide to a Natural Empowering Birth is a collection of inspiring birth stories, expert tips and practical insights to empower women to reclaim their birth power and overcome their fears in a modern world. it includes a special afterword by internationally acclaimed Dr Sarah Buckley MD.
