Biography

Hi,

My name is Jess Boland and I am a Registered Nurse, Registered Midwife, IBCLC Lactation Consultant, Postpartum Doula, Calmbirth Educator, Wife and Mother.

I have always had a passion for working with women, children and families and have spent the last decade gathering knowledge, experience, skills and even more enthusiasm for this field of work. I have had the privilege of supporting numerous couples through pregnancy, birth and beyond working as a MGP midwife for the last 6years. MGP model of care provides birthing couples continuity and a space to fulfil physiological birthing as well as provide support throughout no matter how their journey unfolds. From this I have witnessed the power of the mind and body and when a woman is able to surrender to this process, the beauty of it all.

My aim is always to empower women, promote normalcy of birth, provide a safe, calm and private space and support them to believe in themselves, their body, their baby and the process. This offers the opportunity for a positive and joyful experience no matter how a person’s/couples journey transpires including the greater community to admire and feel confident and empowered by birth. To change the narrative and culture around pregnancy, birth, postpartum and parenting to one of positivity, confidence and empowerment.

This led me to the Calmbirth course as it encompasses so many of my own principles and philosophies of education, pregnancy, labour and birth and beyond. I had found the antenatal education program that I could believe in and endorse as it not only teaches couples knowledge and skills, I know work for women through my years as a midwife. Calmbirth is also based in evidenced-based practice and knowledge and is continually being updated to uphold current evidence and practice. I also really appreciated the emphasis on the importance of the partner/support person for the woman and how through this course the couples are provided the tools and space to feel more connected through this process, as this pregnancy birth and parenting is a team effort.

My goal is to provide the Calmbirth program to as many couples as I can, so they too can learn about the body and birth as a natural, physiological process and provide them with knowledge and tools to work with their bodies however their journey unfolds.

I will be offering weekend classes in a small group class format. I will also offer private individual couple classes on weekends or 4 evenings or a combination of both in the comfort of your own home or via Zoom. I will be as flexible as I can to accommodate regional, rural and FIFO couples. Please contact me for any further information or just to answer any of your questions about the Calmbirth course.

Looking forward to meeting you, Cheers!
