Registered Nurse & Registered Midwife
Newborn Mothers Postpartum Professional
Cass Stephens – Registered Nurse/Midwife, Childbirth Educator & Postpartum Doula
I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Nurtured Birth where I will be working as an educator and postpartum doula.
I currently work at Cabrini Health as a postnatal midwife where I have the opportunity and privilege to provide midwifery care for many women and their families, helping them transition into their new roles as parents.
This dream of working with mothers and babies began in 2005 when I became a registered midwife, after five years of being a registered nurse. I have worked as a midwife in antenatal clinics, birth suites, postnatal wards, home visits, and public hospitals.
After I went on to accomplish my life’s greatest achievement, giving birth to my first baby, I was inspired by my calm and empowering birth to become a Calmbirth practitioner. This led to me successfully run my own Calmbirth business for five years.
After many years of working with mothers, along with my own personal experience as a mother, I deeply understand both the joys and challenges of motherhood.
I also recognise the lack of support available for mothers in the postnatal period. I hope to provide mothers with the nurturing care, support and education they deserve during their unique journey after birth.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality family time with my husband, two daughters and our cavoodle. I love natural health, Pilates and am always studying something to do with mothers and babies!
