Nadine has a deep passion for supporting women and their families as they journey into parenthood.
Beyond the She Births® courses she runs on the Northern Beaches, Nadine extends her support via pregnancy yoga classes, attendance at births and very precious mother & baby yoga classes.
She has learnt that making conscious decisions as parents significantly improves a family’s quality of life – from choices that are made for baby in utero, through to birth and beyond. Often this time can be overwhelming in the wealth of information available. Nadine looks to build a sense of empowerment and clarity for expecting couples by making sense of choices available and helping them create a beautiful birth experience, no matter what unfolds.
When I fell pregnant with my first baby I was encouraged by my mother in law, obstetrician Prof. Wendy Savage, to give birth at home. As a yoga teacher and long-term practitioner of yoga, I used pregnancy yoga, active birth techniques and a birth education course as my main forms of preparation for birth. I found that during pregnancy I learnt to breathe properly for the first time in my life and the yoga helped me to enjoy my pregnancy, alleviating discomfort and helping find emotional clarity in readiness for birth. I gave birth to my first daughter in water and experienced a deep sense of empowerment. My second daughter was a very similar experience and i believe that my preparation was key to experiencing two beautiful births.
It was this positive experience of birth that then inspired me to want to help other couples achieve a similarly fulfilling experience, wherever a mother chooses to give birth.
Nadine discovered She Births® when she moved back to Australia and believes it gives couples the most well rounded, complete preparation for birth.
Nadine is a senior Yoga teacher under Yoga Australia, having trained under the British Wheel of Yoga, The Birthlight Foundation, Rainbow Kids Yoga, Bikram Choudhury, Manju Pattabhis Jois, Bryan Kest & Duncan Peak.
