Shelley McClure – Manning Valley, Mid-North Coast, NSW, Australia
Postpartum doula, real food enthusiast and educator, home herbalist dedicated to the revitalisation of postpartum care culture. Largely inspired by my own growth and challenges of crossing the threshold into Motherhood. By practicing the ancient art of postpartum care culture, in a modern context, I believe we can nurture and nourish women, children and families to have a fulfilling and supported transition into motherhood. By caring for the mother we inherently care for the babies and children, creating a ripple effect into our wider communities. The core ethos of being an INNATE postpartum care provider is that maternal health is foundational to healthy communities and this is at the heart of my work and service. I offer nourishing meals, teas, massage, herbal support, breastfeeding guidance, referrals to other specialised practitioners and importantly, a safe space of emotional support to allow families to find their own unique innate wisdom amongst the glorious messy chaos.

Penny Burrows – Dorrigo, Mid-North Coast NSW Australia
I have worked for over 20 years supporting families through the postpartum time. For 17 of those years I have worked as a birthkeeper, trained by apprenticeship in the art of being with birth, herbal medicine for the childbearing year and craniosacral therapy. I am also an accredited Childbirth Educator. I support women to birth their babies at home and couples through the rite of passage that makes them a family. I am dedicated to reinspiring my community about the necessity of comprehensive postnatal care and deep rest at this time for the long term health and wellbeing of our women.
