I have a gorgeous teenage son of whom I absolutely love and adore.  My second passion and love is anything to do with pregnancy, birthing and babies! Pregnancy and birth is a beautiful miracle. I have been so incredibly privileged to be able to support thousands of women through their pregnancy and parenting classes, and hundreds of women throughout their labour, birth, and in the early weeks after baby is born, as their Birth and Postpartum Doula.  My focus is to guide, empower and enrich women and their birthing companions with knowledge to which they can make positive informed decisions during in this beautiful life changing journey to parenthood and beyond.

Thank you for choosing Birthbalance Connect.

I have two amazing boys, now grown young men who I am extremely proud of.  I began my journey into Massage in 2017 and trained at NZ College of Massage.  After graduating in Relaxation Massage I naturally fell into the Health & wellness sector & completed my Pregnancy Massage Module – and that’s where I found my Why!   I then embarked on my Birth & Post-Natal Doula Training. I work from my heart and approach my work with a great deal of empathy and understanding – what I love is that all of my modalities compliment the other, so I can work alongside and support you whatever stage you are in, providing Relaxation Massage and or support as your Doula. I approach each client relationship with unconditional and non-judgmental support.   We have an amazing team, working brilliantly together with support and knowledge that we pass onto you.
