I'M SAM

LIFE COACH, MENTOR AND VIRTUAL ASSISTANT

From the moment you conceived there were so many decisions to be made, from hypnobirthing to sleep training it can be overwhelming and exhausting. As an experienced midwife, nurse and mother of two with over 8 years' experience in pregnancy, birth and early parenting, I'm here to take away that overwhelm. . 

I'm here to support you from

conception to birth and throughout your motherhood journey. 

My guidance will take away the overwhelm of preparing for and caring for your baby, helping you to walk into parenthood calm, confident, and empowered. You can then start your motherhood journey as the most confident versions of yourself.

My Why - From Trauma to Triumph

From birth trauma & a 3rd degree tear to a glorious shower birth, reclaimed power an ignited goddess.

My first birth journey was tough, I followed the rules, I had all the test's, I did the hospital birth classes, I ticked all the boxes on the good, complaint Mumma checklist and still failed. At 41 weeks and 3 days my labour was induced and just a few days later I left hospital with severe PTSD, a 3rd degree tear, struggling to breastfeed and physically, mentally and spiritually broken. My motherhood journey started with months of feeling disconnected from my baby, an obsession with breastfeeding and sleep routines and immense grief about the relationship with my own mother I never had.

 

The next 2 years were filled with learning to become the mother I wanted to be, and the immense benefits of a nurturing first 1000 days inspired by my love for my first born. When it was time to conceive a second time, I was determined to take back my power and ensure that this baby was born into a fear free, calm birthing environment. 

Throughout my second babies' pregnancy journey I made deliberate and careful choices, I ate the foods I craved, I prepared my mind and my body for birth, I soaked up time with my 1st babe and I practiced tuning into my body and trusting my intuition daily. At 41 weeks and 3 days I powerfully birthed my 4.1kg second born in the birth room shower just minutes after arriving to hospital. Post birth I felt so grateful for my positive experience, but my motherhood journey was the real transformation.

 

This time I trusted myself as a mother, my body's ability to make nourish my baby, my baby's circadian clock, my need for rest, self-care and self-compassion. A fire has been lit inside me and I was determined to ensure as many mothers as possible had the tools and confidence to take back their power and reclaim their birth's so that they could enjoy motherhood the way it is meant to be enjoyed.

 

My personal motherhood journeys and the journeys of the mother's I have supported in my community were catalyst that propelled me into changing careers from an experienced nurse educator and manager to a midwife and birth and early parenting educator. To dedicating my life to gathering the knowledge to now support families to achieve the calm, confident, empowering motherhood journey's they deserve.
