A Word from Wondermum’s resident Naturopath and Founder:

Kia Ora!

I am Sindy, the founder of Wondermum (2014) and a mother of two. I am a qualified Naturopath,wondermum-specialist Nutritionist and Herbalist (2009) specialising in Pregnancy, Birth & Breastfeeding Health. 

I am passionate about the well-being of mums and strive to assist expecting mums to have a healthy, empowering pregnancy and natural birth experience.

After a less than satisfying first birth, I was determined to have a better experience with baby #2. I researched the best nutrition, herbs, aromatherapy & supplements to use during pregnancy. I came to the conclusion that if I wanted an empowering experience this will be best achieved at home, with a midwife, a doula and of course a birth pool!

I finally managed to get in our birthing pool during my second labour and I was not disappointed! The relief and calm that washed over me in the birthing pool was incredible. 

After the birth friends were asking to hire our pool. I soon realised there was a great need for this service. And the rest, well it’s history!

Wishing you a birth your way!
