Hello! I'm Lisa.

I've been a nurse for 18 years and spent my career looking after women and children. For the last eight years, I've focussed on midwifery, with a strong interest in supporting every woman to have the best birth possible.

At Breathe and Birth, I share my knowledge with you. It's the place to be reminded that your body can do marvellous things (it already is, it's growing a human!) and that the upcoming big event in your life - birth and meeting your baby - is going to be pretty amazing. 

Hypnobirthing classes and Pregnancy Support calls can help to:

-Instil belief in your ability to birth your beautiful baby

 -Open up conversation with your team 

 -Identify what positive birth means to you

Education and understanding empowers choice 

Private Telehealth Consultations

These calls are currently provided at no cost to clients

Common reasons for private midwifery support calls:

Overcoming fear of birth

Help with breastfeeding - including before your baby arrives

Childbirth Education Revision - very popular for mums having a subsequent baby.

Sleep and Settling Techniques

Recovering from birth

Planning a loving and connected elective c/section

What others say: 

Lisa changed my way of thinking when it came to giving birth. Instead of being scared, I was more pumped and excited. Lisa emphasises that it's mind over matter and it's how you approach labour. She talks about connecting with your baby, using different language such as embracing a contraction and focusing on your breathing. Find your happy place being calm and just letting your body relax. After our session with Lisa, she took us through a meditation which enabled us to connect with our body. It felt like you were hypnotised but you could still hear your surroundings. The more I practised my hypnobirthing, the better I got at controlling my mind and my body."

I was able to achieve the natural birth I dreamed of with the support of the Hypnobirthing course at Breathe and Birth with Lisa. Baby Arlo arrived into the world on the 4th of April, 10 days post his 'guess date'. Lisa was such an amazing support leading up to the birth, particularly when my due date came and went. Lisa supported me to regain my confidence and an open mind regardless of how my baby decided to make an appearance. In the end, my labour started naturally and after 15 hours and everything going exactly as I had hoped, baby Arlo was born with the support of my husband, a couple of amazing midwives and hypnobirthing. My husband was also very prepared due to the tools and knowledge he had learnt during the course and it allowed us to work together so well during the labour. I'd recommend Lisa to any expectant woman and their birth partners!
