A bit more about Allison…
I am extremely excited to join the Coastlife Midwifery team. I have been a midwife for over 25 years and most of that time I have spent working at the Bundaberg Maternity Unit. I have relocated to the Sunshine Coast to be able to work in a continuity model of care and to be able to support and empower women and families through their journey of pregnancy, birth and transition into parenthood. I have a supportive husband and three grown boys who all live independently and who all know a lot of midwifery and breastfeeding talk.
I have felt privileged to be able to work with women and families over the last 25 years and to observe the growth and development of the many wonderful families I have encountered in this time. I have been qualified as lactation consultant since year 2000 and have worked in various settings since I gained the qualification. Initially I worked privately as a lactation consultant and then established a clinic at the maternity unit. I have supported many women with feeding their babies and am in constant awe of the strength women have to succeed.
I am looking forward to meeting new families from the Sunshine Coast and to support you in your journey through pregnancy and beyond.
