Jo Hunter

Jo Hunter: Homebirth Midwife 

I believe that women should be placed at the centre of their own experience, supported to empower themselves with knowledge and skills, given time and encouragement from their midwife, as well as being surrounded by those they love and people who believe and trust in their ability to birth. It is the midwives role to have patience and trust in the innate ability of women and babies and to be comfortable and confident to support this process in any setting the woman chooses. Pregnancy, birth and postnatal care up to 6 weeks is provided in your home. I live in The Blue Mountains and service local families, inner west and western Sydney.

Geesje McGuire

Hi, my name is Geesje (pronounced Geesha) McGuire.

I have been a midwife since 1993 and a Lactation Consultant since 2011.

My Dutch heritage has instilled me with a healthy, physiological perspective on pregnancy and childbirth. If risk factors do arise I believe women and their significant other(s) should be fully informed about the immerging condition to enable them to make an informed choice regarding their maternity care plan.

At present I am following the Masters in Primary Maternity Care, part-time, which supports my passion in providing woman centred continuity of midwifery care.

‘Being Born’ is the name of my midwifery business. Upon the birth of a baby a woman transitions into motherhood, a father into fatherhood and a child becomes a sibling therefore a family is being born.

Servicing South West Sydney, Illawarra and the Southern Highland.
