Natalie Burgess (Principal and founder of belly flower)
Natalie has been a Midwife since 2000, and is involved in promoting and supporting natural birthing choices in the South West of Western Australia. The birth of her first son was difficult Finn's birth, and it was this experience that led to the discovery of BirthSkills. Her second son was born recently, without fear and was birthed naturally. Jay's birth story.
Natalie’s focus is to provide support and education for expectant couples, and new parents. Natalie is passionate about gentle birth, and aims to provide a safe, nurturing and empowering experience through belly, birth and baby.
"Belly flower first started with private pregnancy yoga sessions in lounge rooms in Margaret River. Today I live, breathe and sleep birth as I work to do all I can to help create the ripple to start the wave for natural birth, beautiful birth and birth with choice. My aim is to educate women to give them the confidence to birth the way they wish, with beauty and with power.
I am passionate about birth and I am dedicated to providing as much evidence based information and education, along with practical and emotional support and to women (and their families) as they experience pregnancy, birth and early motherhood."
