About Us

Hi! 

My name is Liz and i am a passionate Midwife and Mother.

I am a Mum to 4 wonderful children, identical twin boys who are 18, another boy age 14 and a 7 year old girl.

I have experienced a range of different pregnancies and births including:

     - multiple pregnancy,

     - pool birth,

     - home birth,

     - hypnobirthing, 

     - emergency caesarean,

     - elective caesarean,

     - breech presentation,

     - and placenta previa.

With such personal experiences in addition to my professional experiences, I truly believe that i am well equipped to educate, support and guide new parents through the transition of pregnancy to parenthood.

 

What we BELIEVE & What We DO

Blossoming Bump believes that every woman deserves the right to have the knowledge and skills to be able to prepare their mind and body to have a positive birth experience.


I am extremely passionate about birth being memorable and positive and want to provide you with the education and support to help you feel empowered and have the knowledge and understanding to have the best pregnancy, labour and birth possible.

Blossoming Bump offers support and education around pregnancy, birth and transitioning to parenthood by providing antenatal services to families in Mandurah and surrounding areas.

Pregnant Mums will be able to access a range of services such as in-depth antenatal classes, breastfeeding support, endorsed Midwife Service, plus much more!

Our class groups will be kept small (max 6 couples) to allow us to give you the time, attention and support you deserve.

Having small groups will also help local expectant parents who are due around the same time to connect and form life-long friendships.

What in an Endorsed Midwife?

As an Endorsed Midwife I have completed extra training that enables me to provide Medicare funded antenatal and postnatal care. i am able to order diagnostic tests and ultrasounds relating to pregnancy, birth and the newborn period.

All my appointments are bulk billed and my private care is in collaboration with Dr Van Der Merwe ,a local GP Obstetrician.

Pregnancy care will take place at Blossoming Bump, Davey Street and from August i will be running a clinic for ladies in the Murray region at Nurture for Mums, Pinjarra.

Please message if you would like further information.
