Vida Rye is a passionate advocate for physiological
birth and her home-based business, NurtureNZ, has
grown organically from the paid and voluntary work
that she has been doing since 2002 amongst the
birthing community within Wellington.
Her journey with birth so far, she says, has taught her so much. From her first training as a birth and postnatal doula back in the UK, through to the wonderful birth experiences of having her own two baby girls here in New Zealand at home, in water with the support of fantastic midwives, family and friends.
Vida sells and hires La Bassine birth pools to mums-to-be and midwives within NZ.
Vida also offers calmbirth® courses to women and their partners/birthing partners. As a calmbirth® practitioner she feels she has finally found her true calling. Vida says that it brings together all that she has learned and experienced in birth and she feels compelled to spread the word!
Through her work sharing calmbirth® techniques for pregnancy, labour and birth and by providing quality birth pools to her community and across NZ, Vida knows that she is enabling women and their partners to experience the true joy of childbirth.
