Kia Ora!

​My name is Courtney, and I am the founder of Nurtured Families. I have a Bachelor of Midwifery and am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I am extremely passionate about powering families with evidence-based knowledge to help build confidence and reduce fear around pregnancy, labour, birth and parenting. I have found the most effective way to do this is by creating a space where I can help parents understand and connect to this wild, wonderful and natural process in a way that allows them to trust and honour their body, wants and needs. Throughout my Bachelor of Midwifery, I was able to witness many family units courageously work together to birth their little ones! The biggest thing I learnt was that the more knowledge a person had, the more control, power and satisfaction they felt over their experiences. This sparked a burning passion to ensure everyone has access to the tools and knowledge needed to make informed decisions and facilitate their own ideal experiences – whatever that may look like. Nurtured Families was created as a space to do just that!
