I graduated as a Registered Nurse from the University of Notre Dame Australia in December 2004. After graduating I did a 'gap half-year' of traveling through Europe and the USA. On my return I did a year of the Graduated RN Program at Princess Margaret Hospital (in Perth WA) from August 2005 - June 2006. I then traveled some more through Europe
In March 2007 I started working in the Neonatal ICU at PMH. By the end of 2007 I was back in Europe (I had discovered a passion for traveling) and in January 2008 I started working in the UK. For the next 3 years I worked between PMH and various NICUs in the UK - mostly Great Ormond Street, the John Radcliffe, St Thomas', and University College Hospital. I also spent some time nannying in France and bar tending in London and Austria.
In December 2011 I did a 4 week work placement in Ghana - 2 weeks on the 'labour and delivery' ward, 1 week in the 'NICU', and 1 week in a rural clinic (where there was 1 RN and a 'pharmacy' technician
In 2012 I did my Midwifery training between Edith Cowan University and Osborne Park Hospital.
In February 2013 I did a 3 week work placement in Sri Lanka, all on the labour and delivery ward. In those 3 weeks I birthed 20 babies and witnessed with birth of least 20 more.
In July 2013 I found out I was pregnant and immediately started planning for a home birth, and in early March 2014 my daughter was born at home. Being a midwife I had no idea I should be worried about not being able to breastfeed. You can read the full story of my breastfeeding/expressing journey here.
Soon after graduating as a RN I discovered I had a passion for traveling and I have visited 80 countries to date. I also have a real interest in learning about different cultures, especially related to birth and how others care for their babies. We are very lucky to be living in a country like Australia, with our healthcare system and high standards of living, but I also believe we can learn a lot from 'traditional' cultures.
I am registered as a Nurse and Midwife with the Nurses and Midwifery Board of Australia. I am a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner. I am a member of the Australian College of Midwives, the Australian Breastfeeding Association, and the Childbirth And Parenting Educators of Australia. I have Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurance with AON. In January 2017 I did 120hrs of lactation education and in October I sat the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiner's exam.
