About Us

Hi, I'm bec

I’m a Psychologist, HypnoBirthing Practitioner, and mumma to two beautiful girls, Stevie and Aubrey.

When I was pregnant with Stevie, I was terrified of giving birth.  

My plan was to have all of the drugs and I assumed birth would be painful and traumatic. After I discovered HypnoBirthing, my beliefs and approach to birth completely changed – I started to feel confident, empowered and excited about giving birth, and I went on to have an incredible birth experience. 

Cue motherhood. 

My early motherhood experience was extremely challenging, and possibly one of the hardest times in my life. It was exhausting, isolating, and confusing. I threw myself into being a mother and I completely forgot to meet my own needs. I often felt like I was failing and struggled to trust my instincts. I could feel myself going through an intense transformation, but at times I felt like I’d lost myself and didn’t quite know my place in the world anymore.

Motherhood is the best journey I have ever been on, but unfortunately we need so much more support than we are provided. When a baby is born, so too is a mother, and she deserves to be honoured and nurtured as she goes through this intense transformation.

I created my business, The Mindful Birth Movement,
to
support women through their pregnancy, birth and motherhood journey

To help you experience the beauty and strength of a natural, positive birth experience, and to nurture you as you become a mumma.

Steph is a mother of two boys, a wife & HypnoBirthing Practitioner for The Mindful Birth Movement. 

She has such an intimate understanding of the birth process and what a woman needs to do to prepare for the most amazing day of her life. She loves supporting women on this beautiful journey and teaches HypnoBirthing with passion and deep knowledge from her own personal experiences

Motherhood is hard!

We have been told a lie about motherhood – that it should come naturally and easily, that we should be able to do it all and love every minute, that we should be completely selfless and live for our children. We have been conditioned to believe these things, but they are unrealistic and unachievable…

I can help you stop:

And start:

I want to support you on this journey… because I know you probably feel like there is something missing. 

I want to help you to let go of the guilt and anxiety, move past the dark cloud that’s over your head, the busyness and overwhelm you might be experiencing. 

I’ll let you in on a little secret.

The difference between where you’re at now and getting to a place where you feel calm, confident and empowered on your motherhood journey, is taking the leap of faith and reaching out for support.
