I’m a Certified Birth and Postnatal Doula (Australian Doula College, July 2012), with an additional Certificate IV in Doula Support Services. I have further qualifications in Birth Hypnosis, Childbirth Education, Dancing for Birth™ instruction, Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage and Babywearing.

I’ve also completed a wide variety of courses to support women in labour and the early postnatal period, including: active birth, acupressure, aromatherapy, homeopathy and rebozo for labour and birth; optimal foetal positioning, pelvic dynamics and Spinning Babies techniques; patients’ rights in Victoria; early skin-to-skin contact; breastfeeding initiation and support; perinatal nutrition; attachment parenting, infant development and sleep.

I am well-versed in the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman and her partner before, during and after labour. I also speak Spanish and bring a broad, multicultural perspective to my work based on my experience living and working in seven different countries.

My experience includes supporting women through birth at home, in birth centres and in public and private hospitals as well as preparation for VBAC (vaginal birth after Caesarean).

I’m also an enthusiastic volunteer doula with Birth for Humankind, a non-profit organisation providing free doula support to disadvantaged women, primarily refugee and asylum-seeking women as well as young women in Melbourne.

As a doula, my role is to help you identify what a positive birth looks like for you – by providing the latest, evidence-based information; by giving you unconditional support; and by helping you access your inner wisdom. My place is not to speak for you but rather to help you nurture your own voice. By working together, we can create a safe and relaxed environment around birth, giving you confidence in your body and belief in yourself.
