Maternity Services Specialist and Lactation Consultant in the United Arab Emirates

Hire me

Hello I’m a Maternity Services Specialist, passionate about moms' and babies' birth and parenting experience.

I'm an IBCLC Lactation Consultant; a Pre + Perinatal Psychology Educator through APPPAH; Advanced Midwife with a Masters Nursing degree; Baby Massage Practitioner and Hypnobirthing Childbirth Educator.

Prior to coming to the UAE in 2010 I had my own Integrative Home Birth Practice in South Africa.

I worked at Corniche Hospital in Abu Dhabi, UAE, initially as a Midwife then as a Clinical Educator for 4 years.

Setting up Maternity Services for a Home Care Nursing Services company and Primary Health Care Clinic followed for the next 2 years. Then as a COO of an Home Care Nursing Company in Al Ain I learned about CARF, Daman and the challenges of this sector in the UAE.

I'm a certified Meta Coach & Executive Leadership Coach which underpins my interest in the development of peoples' potential.

I have over 30 years combined international, multicultural experience in management, clinical practice, education & training and QI (BFHI, Jawda, Tasneef, Daman, HAAD, CARF & JCI). I completed an MBA and MABR as a forerunner to a DBA.

I have an efficient and organized approach to my work, while being collaboratively creative and energetic as a proactive team player with sound organisational and communication skills.

I am passionate about the positive transformational aspects embodied in Pregnancy, Birth & Parenting.
