Gurjeet S Minhas is a registered nurse in the birthing unit and university nursing professor with master’s degrees in Nursing from Mumbai, India and Sydney, Australia. She uses her 30 + years of experience, helping over 4, 320 women have healthy birth experiences and her wisdom, gathered from India, Australia, New Zealand, U.S. and Canada, to assist pregnant women with valuable, useful information and techniques for a safe pregnancy and childbirth.
She is a distinctive authority in the field of prenatal education with over 57,600 hours of experience and has an unusual ability to calm even the most stressed pregnant woman, while substantially increasing her confidence in giving birth. She identifies patterns that limit and restrict the woman’s ability to give birth, and subsequently facilitates the implementation of strategies and techniques to assist her in preparing for an easy childbirth. To minimise the rising C-section rates, Gurjeet started the Joyous Childbirth movement that teaches pregnant women how to maximise their own strengths and build their capacity to have an easy childbirth.
Every Birth is a unique and significant milestone in your life that deserves thoughtful and advanced preparation. It is natural to have concerns and fears of things you have not experienced before.
