Owner/Founder of Beyond Birth Collective
Proud, wholesome mama of my two boys.
Here at Beyond Birth, I aim to nurture growing families by providing them with the tools, support and knowledge they need to flourish throughout pregnancy, labour and beyond. Whether that be in the means of Placenta Encapsulation or Doula Support
After the labour and birth I experienced with my first born son, a rebirth happened in me. I made it my mission to encourage women everywhere, that they too hold the power. That they are strong and fierce warriors who can't and won't be tamed.
At Beyond Birth Collective, I offer unique and tailored Placenta Encapsulation and Birth Worker Services as I believe a mother will thrive if she has her tribe.
My aim is to be a piece to your puzzle via encapsulation or birth support (or heck, maybe even both!) so that you and your family can transition to postpartum life as smoothly and as positively as possible - all while feeling empowered and confidently strong!

In the womb with your baby, nature has created the perfect organ that supports baby until birth. The placenta makes oxygen diffusion, excretes baby’s waste, supplies nutrition, and more. It is also beneficial for the mother during the postpartum period.
Placenta encapsulation is the process of taking a a placenta, after it has finished its job of nourishing your baby, and safely preparing it in a way that allows it to be put into capsules, so that they can be swallowed like a pill.
Consumption of the placenta, also known as placentophagy, is a practice that dates back to ancient times and is still common in certain cultures today.
Placentophagy, is the act of mammals eating the placenta of their young after childbirth.
The placenta contains high levels of prostaglandin which stimulates the reduction of the uterus - bringing it back to pre pregnancy size. The placenta also contains small amounts of oxytocin which eases birth stress and causes the smooth muscles around the mammary cells to contract and eject milk. Proponents also believe it can help prevent postpartum depression, may help with pain control and replace depleted iron.
I ACKNOWLEDGE THE WURUNDJERI PEOPLE, TRADITIONAL AND TRUE CUSTODIANS OF THE LAND ON WHICH I LIVE AND WORK,
AND PAY RESPECTS TO THEIR ELDERS PAST, PRESENT AND EMERGING.
