A Word from Wondermum’s resident Naturopath and Founder:

Hi there,

I am Sindy, the Managing Director of Wondermum. I am a qualified Naturopath,wondermum-specialist Nutritionist and Herbalist specialising in Pregnancy, Birth & Breastfeeding Health. I have had the honour of birthing and mothering two beautiful babies.
I am passionate about the well-being of mums and aim to assist expecting mums to have a healthy, empowering pregnancy and birthing experiences.

Wondermum really started coming together when I was pregnant with my second child, focussed on a better, more empowering birthing experience; which I believed would be best achieved at home in a La Bassine Made in Water Birthing Pool. At that time there were not many options available to us for hiring a birth pool in Auckland, so we ended up buying our birthing pool.

During this second birth I finally did manage to get in our birthing pool during my labour and I was not disappointed! The relief and calm that washed over me whilst in the water was immense. Now I understood why so many women swear by using a birthing pool as natural labour pain relief.
After the birth of our son, I had friends ask if they could hire the La Bassine birth pool. We are still hiring birthing pools today!

I have been in practice in the Natural Health Sector in Auckland, NZ since 2009. During and after both my pregnancies, I spent many hours researching natural ways in which to support my pregnant, birthing and post-natal body. I have since been using that knowledge to help other expectant mums in their quest for healthy pregnancies, healthy babies and better breastfeeding.

It is our vision to bring together all of the knowledge to you here, with Wondermum, so that you too will have access to everything you may need to support your Health and Well-being on your motherhood journey in one convenient place!

Wishing you all the best on this most amazing and sacred Motherhood Journey,

Sindy Hawthorne
