FAQ

Can we meet you before we sign up?

Absolutely! It’s important that we’re a good fit and that I’m aware of your expectations so I can ensure I can meet them. I suggest a coffee and a chat at a local cafe.

Which hospitals do you attend births at?

Both Shoalhaven and Moruya. 

When do you start working with us?

I recommend from 35 weeks onwards so we can develop a relationship and build trust so I’m a familiar face at your birth.

Is a Doula only for women who want a natural birth?

Absolutely not! I’ll help you prepare for a positive birth- regardless of how your baby comes into the world. If you get induced, have an epidural, elective cesarean or emergency cesarean I’ll help you use the tools you learnt on the Hypnobirthing Australia Positive Birth program to remain calm, relaxed and empowered.

Your question hasn't been answered?

I can educate, love, respect, listen, embrace, advocate for and assist you during pregnancy, labour, birth and after either in person or virtually.
