Come and join the Natural Birth Conversation and learn from a panel of speakers who will discuss topics such as:

* Is there a role for home birth?

* The role of Chiropractic and Acupuncture during pregnancy and preparing for birth.

* The role of a birth support person (doula) in birth.

* Q and A with our speakers.


Our Natural Birth Practitioners are:

Dr Stephanie Willis (Chiropractor)

Stephanie has been a chiropractor since 2003, and in those years of practice she has developed a passion for pregnancy, paediatrics and complex case management. She has completed a postgraduate diplomate in Pediatrics and pregnancy, as well as a diplomate in Functional Neurology.

Stephanie has 2 young children of her own, and understands first hand the demands of pregnancy, birth and motherhood.


Dr Irene Prantalos (Chinese Medicine)

Irene has been practising Chinese Medicine since 2003 after a challenging adolescence in trying to manage her severe psoriasis. It was after using Chinese Medicine for 2 months Irene finally experienced relief. As soon as going into private practise, Irene's focus centred around women's health, fertility and pregnancy (as skin issues felt a little too close to home initially). This initiated further study in this field focused particularly around pre-natal and post-natal care. Irene is a mum of one beautiful, energetic little toddler.


Juliana Brennan (Midwife)

Mother of three children

Midwife in private Practice offering home birth and hospital birth services including shared care. Calmbirth Educator.


Liz Varney (Doula)

Liz is a trained and experienced Doula who has attended births in both public and private Melbourne hospitals, and homes. Liz understands the complex needs of birthing women and their partners, and the positive impact of individualised, continuous care during pregnancy, labour and the early months of parenting. With five children of her own, Liz knows that having the right support is invaluable in ensuring a satisfying birth experience for all members of the family.


Shalome (Rockstar Birth Educator)

Shalome Stone has a stimulating desire to shift the birthing scene from it’s focus on statistics and fear-mongering, to a place of respect, integrity, and woman-centered sacred encounters. With the creation of the Rockstar Birth Magazine and the Rockstar Birth Radio podcast, Shalome shares rich stories and power-packed insights that inspire questions, agitate for change, and cause her audience to pause and reflect on their own unique birthing journeys.
