Jo Spies – Helping Your Better Tomorrow Start Today
First and foremost I am Mum to 4 busy children. My journey began with a very difficult birth of my first baby in London. I am eternally grateful for this birth as it really changed my direction in life and was the beginning of a new career.
I began my training as a Doula, Childbirth Educator and Lactation Consultant and after moving back to NZ in 2007 set up a very busy private practice. Later commencing my studies in Homeopathy and Quantum Reflex Analysis. In 2014 I moved to Brisbane from New Zealand to support my husband in his need for more sunlight and a warmer climate, and have set up a private clinic in North Lakes.
I am passionate about all areas of health and educating others on this subject. I have a wide knowledge around allergies and gut issues from personal experience and healing 3 of our children from allergies. I also have a keen interest in pregnancy, babies and children’s issues and am an advocate of women being supported during the birthing process in a gentle and caring and empowering manner.
I have assisted many women over the past 11 years while preparing for birth and motherhood, during the birth and in the early days of parenting. I am confident to support women in labour and birth in a hospital, birth center or in the comfort of home. To honour and hold space for a woman in labour is such a privilege and a job that she truly loves. 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.
I have 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 me a call.
I am available to support mothers with lactation support both in my clinic or in your home.
