Bernadette (B)

Founder and Creator of all things Core & Floor

Hey! I’m B. And I’m here to support you through pregnancy, labour, and postpartum.

I’m a midwife, personal trainer, wife, mother, published academic and speaker. I’ve worked as a midwife in Australia and overseas since 2007, across homebirth, large city hospitals and in remote First Nations communities.

I hold a Bachelor of Midwifery (Distinction) with First Class Honours and a Master of Public Health. I was also awarded the Sidney Sax medal for best overall performance in my masters.

While continuing to grow Core & Floor, helping people like you through the mental and physical challenges of pregnancy, birth and postpartum, I’d also like to complete a PhD (one day ;-)).

I understand your pregnancy and postpartum challenges from both a professional and personal perspective. I’ve been through incontinence and have recovered from prolapse. I get what you’re going through, I understand the family juggle and can help you heal and feel confident in your body.

When I’m not connecting with amazing people the world over, or studying to learn even more in this space, you’ll find me out in the bush camping, hiking or splashing in the bath with my boys.
