Jacqui recently relocated to Hong Kong and plans to establish Calmbirth Classes in Hong Kong
Jacqui is passionate about encouraging women to have positive and empowered birth experiences. Jacqui views birth as a key life event and believes that how a woman feels about her birth experience can have a profound effect on her transition to motherhood.
In 2003 a chance meeting introduced Jacqui to the term “doula” and the concept of emotional support, wisdom and encouragement for an expectant couple. This resonated with her and she trained as a doula in 2003 and has been supporting pregnant women and their partners since. Through her work as a doula Jacqui became familiar with the calmbirth® programme and was ultimately inspired to train after witnessing first-hand how the calmbirth® techniques helped couples prepare for labour, birth and beyond.
In 2011 Jacqui qualified as a Certified Calmbirth® Practitioner. Jacqui also holds a Certificate IV in Breastfeeding Education and was a volunteer Breastfeeding Counsellor with the Australian Breastfeeding Association for over 6 years. Jacqui completed a Bachelor of Nursing in 2016, and moved to Hong Kong in early 2017. Although she is still settling in she plans to establish Calmbirth® Classes in Hong Kong.
