Birth and Postnatal Doula Support

“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it”

– Dr. John H. Kennel

  

“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers- strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”

– Barbara Katz Rothman

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. You can book a no- obligation coffee and a chat HERE

Where do you attend births?

At homebirths from Nowra to Batemans Bay and Shoalhaven Memorial Hospital.

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.
