Hi, I’m Carla.


I’m deeply passionate about women’s choices when it comes to pregnancy and birth and feel privileged to be working with women and their families in the way that I do.  Motherhood is very rewarding, but most of us experience difficult times along the way.  Supporting women through their own mothering journey, however that looks, is hugely important to me. Pregnancy and birth is the beginning of a life-long learning curve and sharing this with a community of like-minded women to learn from, grow with and support makes it all that much easier.

Additional information

Birth Boot Camp 2 Day Workshops

  • Birth Boot Camp is a 2 day intensive, interactive and evidence-based childbirth workshop.   We cover:
    • The natural process of labour and birth
    • How to minimise fear and anxiety through mindfulness
    • The role that pain plays and a wide range of coping strategies
    • Movement and positioning (Active Birth Techniques)
    • Partner support strategies (physical and emotional)
    • Your rights, choices and preferences in birth
    • Medical interventions, indications, risks and alternatives
    • Making a birth plan
    • Postpartum: breastfeeding, self-care, expectations and resources

HypnoBirthing courses

  • HypnoBirthing is a 5 week program for couples and an in-depth birth education course.  We cover:
    • How your body and your hormones work for you in birth.
    • Breathing, relaxation, visualisation & self-hypnosis techniques for labour & birth.
    • Partner support strategies
    • That fear is counter-productive to birth & how to manage this.
    • To advocate for your birthing choices, communicate with care providers and write a birth plan.

Sleep Support

  • I’m an holistic sleep consultant which means my approach considers all aspects of your child, your family and your lifestyle.  I take the following aspects into consideration when supporting you through sleep challenges:
    • Your child’s age, temperament, development and emotional wellbeing
    • Your parenting style, connection and attachment to your child
    • Family dynamics, optimal sleep environment and nutrition
  • I work with you to discover the reasons behind the sleep issues and provide support and solutions to address the cause of the sleep challenge using an integrative approach.   This approach includes applying the foundations of sleep, sleep science and if necessary, gentle sleep coaching methods.  Whether you are breastfeeding, bottle feeding, co-sleeping or not, I can support you to find suitable solutions to your current sleep situation.

Placenta Encapsulation

  • Placenta encapsulation involves carefully preparing the placenta after birth where the placenta is prepared, dehydrated and ground to a fine powder before being placed into capsules.
  • Why choose me?  You only have one opportunity to have your placenta encapsulated safely and correctly, so choosing a provider who is both trained and experienced is a must. I have been encapsulating in Brisbane for over 7 years, have personal experience of encapsulation and am an Associate Member of Placenta Services Australia. I hold the following qualifications:
    • IPEN trained and certified placenta encapsulation specialist
    • Certificate in bloodborne pathogens and infection control for placenta encapsulators
    • SITZFSA101 Food Handlers – Hygiene practices for Food Safety Certificate

    Carla is fantastic! I am not a fan of traditional 'sleep training' programmes and would say we are close to following attachment/gentle parenting styles. Carla really listened to our wishes and needs, and created a plan which suited our family and it really worked!! I would not hesitate to recommend her, she's a fantastic listener and really had such a passion for her work. - Jade G (26 May 2017)

    My husband and I have just completed the most AMAZING hypnobirthing course with Carla. We couldn't be more delighted with how it went. Carla is an incredible educator - full of passion and knowledge. There literally wasn't one thing we asked Carla that she did not know the answer to comprehensively. The one on one course was perfect for us. Carla created such a relaxed and open atmosphere. Dave and I felt very much at ease and looked forward to every session. The knowledge that we learnt was very practical and we are really looking forward to putting it into practice. I now feel very relaxed and excited about the birth and Dave now feels much clearer and more confident about his role in the birth and how important it is. This course also really complements the hospital ante natal classes we undertook. Thank you so much again. We loved every second of the course. Carla really is an exceptional educator. - Rhiannon B (8 June 2017)

    We just completed the private Hypnobirthing course and feel so much more confident and focused on a positive birthing and as new parents. Carla is a wealth of knowledge/wisdom and it felt like she really understood us and got to know us on a personal level. Will recommend Carla to everyone. :) - Brooke D (25 June 2018)

    We recently finished our private classes with Carla! We were impressed with how much we learnt over our few classes and the knowledge/understanding we took away. We felt very at ease with Carla and enjoyed the one on one environment! This will be our first child, so we walked in not knowing much at all. We feel confident for our birth and excited to meet our little girl. We could not thank Carla enough for her guidance and would highly recommend to anyone considering Hypnobirthing! - Shanae W (3 Sept 2018)
