About Me
black and white bio image of maree

With over 20 years as a health professional, I bring a world of knowledge and clinical experience caring for families from pregnancy through birth and beyond. Whether you’re a first time mum, or you’re experiencing issues with your second, third or fourth baby, I aim to empower parents and support you on your breastfeeding journey.

Coming from a family of Nurses and Midwives, the importance of quality and personalised care is something that shaped my values. I started my career as a registered nurse and found my passion in early childhood health and development, women’s health and education. I completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Midwifery in 2004. A Graduate Diploma in Child and Family Health qualifying as a Maternal Child Health Nurse in 2013 and in 2018 became an International Certified Lactation Consultant with the IBLCE.

My career has seen me work in a number of public and private practices across Melbourne and regional Victoria. In 2006, I relocated from Melbourne to the Macedon Ranges, with my young family.

As a mother of 2 myself, I understand the ups and downs of breastfeeding and raising tiny humans.

I am passionate about removing the pressure and guilt around learning to breastfeed, as well as clarifying the conflicting information that so many new mothers are faced with. It can be difficult, emotional and overwhelming navigating the “correct” approach through books, online content and Mother’s Group conversations. You are not alone!

I support all women and family units – offering a safe, non-judgmental space for straight and same-sex couples. Since 2006 I have serviced the greater Northern Melbourne region, supporting many mothers from refugee and migrant communities, with an acute understanding of cultural, religious and language considerations in a home environment.

Drawing on my extensive health knowledge and own experiences, I take a holistic approach. Breastfeeding is more than assisting you with lactation. I aim to help you gain a broader perspective, understand your parenting style, assess your individual challenges and work with you to both overcome them and unveil your confidence to be the parent you want to be.

My aim is for you to uncover your own confidence and become your own baby’s expert.

Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn’t know you had and dealing with fears that you didn’t know existed.
