I would recommend Jodi’s services 110%
In the lead up to my birth Jodi was there to provide me with all the knowledge I needed to make my own informed decisions and was there to help with any worries that mothers are faced with today about size of babies, inductions etc.

On the day of the birth I was so mentally and physically prepared from the lead up sessions we had with Jodi. As a first time Mum I completely surrendered and trusted my body and had the confidence knowing Jodi was there to guide me through when I needed it. Instead of rushing to the hospital I was able to go through the first part of labour outside in the garden at home where I felt relaxed. Jodi walked through active positions with me and guided me through those waves of contractions.

My husband Ryan was able to leave me to have a well needed rest knowing that I would need him well alert later on. I am so grateful and blessed that my wish for a water birth was achieved and our beautiful daughter Mali was born with only one big push at the end.

Thanks Jodi for everything.
