Christine is a proud mum of two whose interest in maternity services reform was sparked after she was unable to access her preferred model of care due to it being restricted by a ballot system. Her own experience with prolapse and abdominal separation has also provided her with intimate insight into the challenges women face navigating the medical system for postnatal care and the emotional hurdles that may need to be overcome when adjusting to the physical changes that occur due to pregnancy and birthing.
Christine’s desire to support women through their motherhood journey is evidenced by her volunteer work with Friends of the Birth Centre Queensland and her training as a pelvic floor and diastasis recti friendly postnatal trainer. Christine holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with experience in human resources and project management, a Bachelor of Leisure Management and a Cert IV in Fitness along with a number of courses related to pregnancy and postnatal exercise.
Christine’s focus is to combine her knowledge and experience to create positive change for future generations of birthing women.
