About the author

Gabrielle Targett is the author of the internationally very successful book A Labour of Love: A Guide to Natural Childbirth Without Fear.

As well as teaching, she has presented many workshops and courses in aqua fitness instruction and has been an assessor/examiner in the fitness industry for the past 12 years. Her outstanding ability to speak publicly with honesty, humour and passion came from her many years of lecturing at TAFE. Gabrielle has been working as a Doula since 1997. During this time, she has attended hundreds of births at various hospitals, at home with private midwives and at the birthing centre at King Edward Hospital, Perth. She has presented at many conferences including the Australian Midwifery Conference, the Homebirth Conference and the National Doula Conference.
