Emily is a Registered Midwife, Registered Nurse and Calmbirth Educator in southern Tasmania. She is also a mother of four young children.

Emily says, “Calmbirth first entered my world 13 years ago when I attended a course in preparation for the birth of my first child. Despite already being a midwife, I walked away from that weekend with more knowledge and understanding about the natural physiological process of birth and what my body was capable of than I anticipated. I had a renewed sense of trust in myself and that I had the tools to work with whatever was ahead of us.  My husband also left the course feeling far less fearful about birth and more confident in his ability to support me. We went on to use those tools for each of our subsequent babies.
