Birthing on Country with Jame Telfer
On the show today, we talk to Jame Telfer, a proud Gumbaynggirr Nyami (woman), mother and founder of essential oil wellness brand, Earth Blended. Diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome at 18, Jame was told she was infertile, but at the age of 20 she gave birth to her first of four children. Jame shares her birthing stories, from the trauma of an emergency caesarian through to an empowering and healing VBAC birth on Country. Along this journey, Jame came to realise how this form of birth is healing not only for her, but for the women of her lineage.
