I live in the Blue Mountains, NSW with my super hubby Dan (the Husbinator) and two children who were both born at home. I have been a midwife in private practice, and providing homebirth services, since 2009.
I truely believe that womens bodies work and are beautifully designed to give birth (most of the time) uninterrupted and with minimal intervention.
In 2015 I also completed my PhD, called "birth outside the system: wanting the best and safest" (you can read a copy below if you are game!). This work sprouted a few academic publications. This work in academia has also allowed me to work as a researcher and midwifery lecturer at Western Sydney university, as a peer reviewer for academic journals and as a project officer at the Australian College of Midwives and motivates the work on my social media and youtube channels.
I also have a degree in Naturopathy and, although I don't work as a Naturopath anymore, I incorporate alternative therapies and nutritional guidance into the care that I give my clients.
I also have a passion for growing, preparing and eating whole nourishing food and we farm on our 5 acre property with the intention of feeding our bodies and minds. You can see our farming and life endeavours @frankie.farm and @wildmothergoose on instagram. Our family maintains a permaculture homestead in the Blue Mountains where we grow food, keep goats for milk and chickens and quails for eggs.
