G'day and Welcome to babybumpCare!

 

How We Came To Be

During pregnancy I was amazed how difficult it was to find reliable sources of information on the internet and an easy to use website that offered a Preventative/Complementary approach dedicated to pregnant women, and this was how the idea of babybumpCare began.  Our beautiful baby boy Jacob is the inspiration behind babybumpCare.  Jacob had a rocky start, at 2 days old he had a stroke, he underwent lots of tests whilst being cared for in NICU the reason for which was never found.  He has an increased risk of seizures and has had a number of prolonged seizures since requiring regular medication as prevention, and thankfully has recovered well. This experience combined with being a Midwife with a background in Western and Eastern Medicine, and the support of a good husband and family has enabled babybumpCare to be born! babybumpCare is an information service and shop with high quality, natural products to suit you and your baby's needs. On our search for products our focus is to promote Australia's amazing biodiversity, and Australian made world class products for you and your baby. All of our Mother and Baby products have been hand picked and tested by myself and my baby and other mums and baby's for their quality and effectiveness. We understand that becoming a parent is huge in its self and we would like to share what we have found helpful through babybumpCare with you.

 

My background

I am a Mother, a Midwife, an Acupuncturist and have a background in Nursing since 1995.  I am very passionate about Women's Health and Complementary Medicine. My understanding of Western and Eastern philosophies of Healthcare has enabled me to adopt a Preventative/Complementary approach to Health.  I have been very fortunate in my career to have met many inspirational teachers along the way and wish to share this knowledge with you.
