Here at Newborn Mothers we often discuss traditional cultural postpartum care, but equally important is looking at funding and systems of postpartum support available in countries today. Ruth is a German midwife and mother of three who has experienced the Australian maternity care system as a consumer and offers some really interesting insight about the values and differences between the two cultures.

Ruth Gray was qualified as a midwife in Germany in 2007.

Ruth provides support, care and guidance to new mothers in their homes after birth to ensure that they are loved, supported, nurtured and assisted in the beginning stages of motherhood.

She is trained and qualified in breastfeeding support, nutrition, homeopathy, acupuncture and ayurvedic babymassage,  pre- and postnatal yoga, and pelvic floor rehab. 

All of Ruth's services note are similar to doula-work, which means offering support and care, but  not administering any medical treatment.

She is a mum to 3 beautiful children, Martha, Henry and Frieda.

Ruth lives and works on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
