Jo Spies is a mother to 4 busy children. Jo's journey began with a very difficult birth of her first baby in London. Jo is eternally grateful for this birth as it really changed her direction in life and was the beginning of her new career. Jo began her training as a Doula, Childbirth Educator and Lactation Consultant and after moving back to NZ in 2007 set up a private practice. Later commencing her studies in Homeopathy and Quantum Reflex Analysis.

Jo is passionate about all areas of health and educating others on this subject. Jo has a wide knowledge around allergies and gut issues from personal experience and healing 3 of her children from allergies. Jo also has a keen interest in pregnancy, babies and children's issues and is an advocate of women being supported during the birthing process in a gentle and caring manner.
Jo has assisted many women over the past 10 years while preparing for birth and motherhood, during the birth and in the early days of parenting. Jo is confident to support women in labour and birth in a hospital, birth center or in the comfort of home. To honor and hold space for a woman in labour is such an privileged and a job that I truly love. Watching and supporting a woman to surrender to birth, to trust fully in her body and to meet her new baby is the most exciting and beautiful thing to witness.
Jo has supported breech births, twins, VBAC's and high risk pregnancies in both the hospital and home setting. If you would like to chat about babies, birth or parenting give Jo a call.
