About us


Eleanor Currie
Co-creator + Filmmaker

Eleanor Currie is a documentary filmmaker, videographer, photographer and mother of two beautiful children.

She has a passion for telling stories about the human experience. Her newest film 'Born At Home' (created with long-term friend, Amanda Banks) explores the emotional journey of homebirth.

After a long and difficult first birth in hospital with many unwanted interventions, Eleanor became pregnant with her second child whilst filming.

Following the interviews with birthing experts, midwives, educators and filming a homebirth first hand, Eleanor decided homebirth was the best choice for her and went on to have her second child at home in a birthing pool. The magic of this experience gave the film a deeper meaning and brought another level of authenticity to the project. 

Amanda Banks 
Co-creator + Producer

Amanda is mother of two children, both born at home. She has always had a passion for health which led her to complete a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) and now works as an Acupuncturist in Brisbane, supporting families through fertility, pregnancy and beyond for over 8 years. Amanda was the former Convenor for Homebirth QLD for 2.5 years until mid 2023 and worked as a maternity consumer representative on the QLD Normal Birth Strategy.


Empowered by the homebirth of her second child in 2020, Amanda together with long term dear friend Eleanor, set out to create a film exploring Homebirth in QLD.

She is the co-creator and Producer of Born at Home.

Supporting women has always been a passion of hers and after absorbing current research on the mainstream maternity system working with Homebirth QLD, she was driven to advocate for evidence based maternity care, women’s rights and access to safe birthing options and education. Amanda believes in the physiological process of birth, that birth is a rite of passage and a positive, supported birth experience can create a mother who feels confident in herself and in her parenting journey, amongst many other beneficial maternal and infant outcomes.
