About My Blossoming Family
Meet Miriam Agnew,
The story of My Blossoming Family started in 2014, powered off of my desire to offer nurture and support. Helping people has always been a big part of my personal make-up, so becoming a nurse and midwife was a natural choice for me.
I love my role as mum to two beautiful children (most of the time). I also understand firsthand the emotional rollercoaster and many of the challenges that come with parenting babies and young children, as well as balancing siblings of quite different ages. I’m passionate about assisting families through the journey from pregnancy and birth, to the first steps on their parenting journey and beyond. I know in my heart that this is my passion and assisting families was my purpose.
I‘ve worked as a midwife in several private and public hospitals. Most recently I was very blessed to support leading obstetrician, Dr Sarah Woodbury as her midwife. During this time, I was able to work closely with women and families throughout the parenting journey. In the last 5 years, I have completed my Certificate in Personal Training providing me with more knowledge to assist my clients. I also hold a Child Sleep Consultant Certification from the International Maternity and Parenting Institute. This qualification opened my eyes to a holistic care model and the importance of addressing all parts of family life – not just one.
The expectation of parenting and the reality can be two very different things. Many times, I’ve had the conversation with parents around the complexity and sheer volume of information, and the inflexibility and pressure that sometimes comes with that information. This situation typically leaves families confused, upset and second-guessing the decisions they are making for their baby and family.
My diverse skills, experience and qualifications allow me to create a more complete, nurturing and flexible care model through My Blossoming Family. Every family is different. My goal is to create a tailored support program that will see families become more confident, informed and empowered. It is important to me that my clients feel supported, validated and cared for. I offer relevant and current information without judgement or assumption.
Through the many beautiful and rewarding relationships I have been blessed to develop through My Blossoming Family, I’ve seen families return to a place of harmony and embrace their parenting journey. I would love to celebrate the many wins you will have along the way and support you through the challenging times; and there will be some of these too.
