Meet your midwife

Renee began her career as a nurse but decided to pursue midwifery after the birth of her first daughter left her feeling like a failure.

During her time as a student midwife Renee learnt that continuity of carer and woman centred care are fundamental for a positive outcome.

Renee worked in the hospital setting first, enjoying working with many women and families. However the limitations that hospital policies and culture place on women, birth and the midwives role frustrated her and motivated her to pursue private practice.

In 2017 Renee began attending home births as ‘second midwife’. Attending these births has filled Renee with trust in physiological birth and its many variations of normal. Being present at these empowering births also inspired Renee to birth her second baby at home with private midwives.

Now Renee has decided to step away from the hospital system to follow her passion to support women choosing to birth a different way.
