About me...

I'm Fiona, mother of two, author & holistic birth educator...


During my first pregnancy, i had many fears about giving birth. I was unsure if my body was capable of giving birth naturally... After I experienced labor and birth as a transendental, sacred right of passage into motherhood, I realised the immense power the female body has to give birth, when we do everything we can to support the process of birth...


After the home births of my children I had a much deeper understanding of what is required for women to be fully prepared for their births in mind and body, to have the best chance of experiencing a natural, intervention-free birth.


Through this deepened understanding of natural birth, I created my online birth course and empowered birth coaching, to support women to be informed, and to know how to advocate for themselves during their labour and birth.

“When enough women realize that birth is a time of great opportunity to get in touch with their true power, and when they are willing to assume responsibility for this, we will reclaim the power of birth and help move technology where it belongs–in the service of birthing women, not their master.”
