Our Childbirth Educators

Our antenatal course leaders have completed a qualification in childbirth education and have children of their own. This allows them to offer information and practical advice on a wide range of parenting issues.

I'm a stay at home mother of three beautiful children (two boys and a little girl).  Kaynan was born in 2006, Brennan 2008 and Danae 2011.

Before finishing up in June 2011 I had worked as a Travel Agent for the previous 11 years.

Life is very hectic in our house but in my spare time (LOL) – I like to get out for walks, catch up with friends, do some baking or pop out for a bit of shopping.

Why did you become a CBE?
10 years ago when I sat in my antenatal class with my husband, filled with nerves, not knowing what to expect, meeting 11 x other women in the same boat as me, I would never have thought that 5 years later I would be the one standing at the front facilitating - but here I am.

My personal journey through pregnancy, birth and becoming a mother inspired me to learn more about this amazing gift of Childbirth - and learn more I have.  With this knowledge, experience and passion my biggest desire was to share it with Mums and Dads to be.

What training and qualifications have you completed?
A Diploma in Childbirth Education through Aoraki Polytech.

What is the best part about being a CBE?
Having Mums and Dads leaving an antenatal class feeling more ‘confident’ ‘excited’ and ‘empowered’.

What is your favourite piece of advice to first time mothers?
“Nobody knows your baby better than you do”
