Rosie is mum to her two girls, Ava 6 and Maggie 4 years of age. Her own positive birthing experiences have given her further drive to promote pregnancy and childbirth as a natural yet profound life event. She believes all births are unique and that women should be supported in a way that is individually tailored to their own needs. She draws upon knowledge as a mum and a midwife to ‘keep birth normal’ and avoid unnecessary intervention.
She is proud to be a Certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner and passionately believe this program gives couples the best chance of achieving the birth they dream of. She takes a relaxed and friendly approach during her classes and feels very privileged to be teaching expectant parents how to give birth in such a calm and positive way.
Jo is passionate and committed to providing a high quality of care to women and their families within the Geelong community. She believes in providing individualised, holistic care and supporting women in their choices. Jo has a strong interest in using complementary therapies within her practice. She has studied an advanced course in acupressure and loves including this in her role as a birth support and childbirth educator. She presents with a friendly, authentic and compassionate manner. She loves being a midwife and she feels it is an absolute pleasure and privilege to be involved in such a significant life event.
Jo is also mum to her beautiful girls Winter, 2 and her gorgeous baby Frida. She had wonderful birth experiences and felt empowered and respected throughout this journey. She and her partner used the Hypnobirthing Australia techniques and found this to be hugely beneficial.
Jo’s role at Geelong Born is to work closely with Rosie and assist her in providing independent and personalised childbirth education and birth support.
We have some lovely news!! Jo welcomed her little girl Frida in September. A gentle waterbirth at home. Jo is currently on maternity leave but will return to Geelong Born in February 2019.
