Why having a ‘Go with the Flow’ attitude can be detrimental to your birth experience!

Are you finding yourself saying things like: ‘I am just going to see what happens during my birth’ ‘We are just going to wing it’ ‘I don’t want to make any kind of plan because I don’t want to be left feeling disappointed if it doesn’t work out that way’ ‘I am just hoping for the best, the experts will know what to do' This, my friend, is what we call a ‘Go With the Flow’ attitude and as much as I love your lax vibes, this attitude can be detrimental to your experience.

Why I left Midwifery

Why I left Midwifery

I always knew I would leave midwifery.  I didn’t want to admit it, but deep in my core I knew.  I pushed through most of the degree, my body speaking at me so many times but I ignored it.  Because you need a qualification, right?

On the last placement that I did my period...

How the system can negatively impact your breastfeeding experience

How the system can negatively impact your breastfeeding experience

As a student midwife I vividly remember giving a newborn baby formula less than an hour after birth. Not only do I strongly disagree with this practice, but the mother herself was barely consulted/asked/included in the decision.

Acknowledgement of the land:

I acknowledge that I live and work on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nations. I pay respect to the elders past, present and emerging. I recognise their continuing connection to the land, water and community.

Language & Inclusivity:

I recognise that not all birthing people present and/or identify as women. For the consistency of equality of expression on this platform, the terms women and birthing people will be used. This is with the intention of all gender identities being celebrated, and in line with my personal philosophy of everyone having the right to feel safe/accepted.
