Midwife Director - MAMA Services
Travelling around Europe in a Combi van with her husband in the early 70’s, Jan was one of the original flower children when she fell pregnant with her own first child, Emma. Such news put an end to Jan’s hippy lifestyle – they sold the Combi van and came home to Australia to raise a family. The disempowering childbirth that delivered Emma spurred Jan on to midwifery training, which she completed at the Queen Victoria Hospital in 1975, going on to work at Monash Medical Centre for many years. Jan has been in private practice as a midwife for 25 years now; she remains committed to avoiding disempowerment of the family during pregnancy, birth and beyond. She particularly enjoys working with younger midwives, and is passionate about helping midwives to take full advantage of the recent maternity reforms in Victoria.
