About the Instructor
I am a Mother of 4 who has always been passionate about home birth, natural birth, home education, attachment parenting, authentic living, music therapy and sound therapy!
I learnt how to play the piano from the age of 6 which then led to learning the double bass in high school. I discovered there was such a thing as music therapy with I was 15 and from then on started reading about it, attended workshops and collected very cool instruments!
I gained a Bachelor of Music degree on the double bass in 1996, played in the WA Symphony Orchestra for a year and then landed my first "real job" at a day respite centre for seniors as a music specialist when I was 21. Here I learnt first hand about how music and sound can instantly transform ones experience of life.
A few years later I met my husband Steve and started creating children!
All of my babies were born at home because I witnessed my Mother birth my sister at home when I was ten years old which left an imprint in me that said "babies can be born safely at home".
During my first two labours I hardly made a sound with my voice because I felt anxious about sounding "weird" and being judged and not wanting people to worry about me ... all of the co-dependent reasons!
During my third labour however, my Mum started to play one of the crystal singing bowls during a contraction and instantly I felt safe, held and able to use my voice to release pain and eventually my baby! I KNEW I had to share what I had experienced with other pregnant women so they too could have a "SoundBirth".
Since then I have been sharing with expectant couples and birth professionals how to integrate sound and music before, during and after the birth of their child.
I also enjoy sharing what I have learnt about sound with ANYONE who wants to integrate quality sound tools and activities into their personal and professional lives at my sound workshops and online course.
I also facilitate relaxing "Sound Journeys" using my crystal singing bowls, gongs and flutes at yoga centres, retreats and where ever else there is a group of people wanting such a beautiful and relaxing experience.
I homeschool my 4 children, practice yoga, eat chocolate, go for longs walks by myself when I can escape and continue to share SoundBirth with the world!
Add quality sound to birth!
This beautiful crystal singing bowl is the perfect pitch and size to assist women during labour to get into "the zone" and stay there...
This bowl is made from pure quartz crystal and makes a resonant sound that fills a room! This then gives a woman in labour something powerful and nurturing to focus on while at the same time their brain waves slow down into a deeply relaxed state.
AND because the sound is so resonant it also encourages those "quiet birthers" to use their voice with confidence in a focused way ... and encourages those "noisy birthers" to use their voice in a grounded, more relaxed way.
Learn all about it in either the Online Course for Expectant Couples or the Course for Birth Pros!
The SoundBirth Bowl includes a soft padded case with handle to enable you to safely and easily carry it into the hospital. It also includes an o-ring for the bowl to sit on and a striker for you to play the bowl with.
Your bowl will arrive at your house within 2 weeks.
