How did I get here?
I always had a fascination with ceremony and ritual, as far back as I can remember.

A daughter of a Yogi, I learnt early on the power of our voice, that our words have wings and that our body is a pathway to consciousness. I have been in presence of women, rituals and circles since I was a teenager.

I studied to be a Naturopath, ran a paediatric practice, lectured in Naturopathy and later spent a year in circle with Rhea Dempsey, Australia’s matriarch of Birth Attending.

As with many of us, I have a complicated history with my feminine, my body and my sexuality, but through the portal of birth I found a healing space for all it.

Motherhood has been a journey even deeper into myself, a pathway to my higher consciousness and I have found a space where my cumulated gifts and learnings can offer a place to heal others.

I feel deep gratitude to be here, thank you for showing up with me.
