About us

Hi, we are Liz and Jill, passionate Midwives, and between us Mum to 10 wonderful children. Personally we have both experienced a range of different pregnancies and births including, multiple pregnancy, pool birth, home birth, hypnobirthing, emergency caesarian, elective cesarian, breech presentation, retained placenta and placenta previa.
Due to our personal and professional experiences, we truly believe we have the confidence, experience and knowledge to educate, support and guide new parents through the transition to parenthood.

 

What we believe and what we do

We believe 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. We are 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.

We will be offering 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, hypnobirthing session, breastfeeding support plus much more.

Our class groups will purposely be 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.
