where you have your baby often dictates how you have your baby.

Amy Gillies and Helen Barrington started Eastside Midwives and Counselling to support the families of Melbourne through their journey of pregnancy, birth and early parenting. Between them, they have over 20 years of midwifery experience, including public hospitals, birth centres, private hospitals and nearly 10yrs in independent practice.

Helen and Amy are committed to supporting women in making informed decisions regarding their care and empowering women to achieve their choices in childbirth. Eastside Midwives & Counselling offers a range of services to families helping them to become more educated about their pregnancy, birth and parenting. This care is complementary and independent to the hospital you choose to give birth in.

Amy and Helen believe that pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding are natural life events. Yet like a lot of things in life, we believe preparation, education and support are vital factors in achieving a happy and healthy experience. Eastside Midwives and Counselling provide that support for your family.
