I work with Sydney families during their first year after having a baby who want to avoid feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, and who want to find confidence, support, health and love in their transition into parenthood.

I provide tailor-made one-year transformational programs to suit the individual needs of the families I work with. My services include support for physical and emotional recovery from birth while adjusting to your new role (including support for partners, grandparents and siblings), building confidence in your parenting style and skills, in-home cooking, breastfeeding/bottle feeding support, sleeping tips and advice, belly binding, village building and assisting with setting up systems to support your family.

I am a mother of two beautiful little people and live in the inner west of Sydney. I am a member of the Newborn Mothers Collective – a methodology that is the foundation of my practice.

After a rocky start to motherhood, when my daughter was 4 months old I was introduced to Julia Jones and her Newborn Mothers approach to postpartum care. My family’s life changed instantly for the better. My journey, along with my partner, in parenthood has since become one of the most rewarding, enriching and most enjoyable rides (with plenty of challenges along the way!)

When our son announced his impending arrival, we started to plan our perfect postpartum period using what we had previously learnt. However, as much as I looked I wasn’t able to find a doula in Sydney that focused solely on postpartum support. Although my son arrived in one of the most stressful years of my life by following the Newborn Mothers approach, the 10 weeks after his birth, was the most peaceful time of my life.

I now want to share these secrets and provide the support I’ve learnt along my journey with you and your family to ensure you have your perfect postpartum experience.

Feel supported and confident as you enter the world as a new parent with my transformational packages. I’ll walk alongside you and support you so, you can achieve your dreams of being a confident and healthy mum and feel the love and support all new parents need.

Each month I offer free workshops in Sydney for expectant parents to learn about how they can prepare for a peaceful (and rejuvenating) postpartum period. At my workshops you’ll discover simple, practical ways to get the support, confidence, health and love that all new mums and parents need.

As part of the Newborn Mothers Collective, I am committed ensuring all new mums and parents are empowered with the tools and knowledge, so they can feel supported and confident in this new chapter of their life. In my workshops I’ll share with you the secrets I learnt when I became a mother (and that no one ever talked about!)

Home Visits
I’ll visit you in your home during the first twelve weeks. I’ll cook for you, run you a rose petal bath, creating for you an in-home spa experience and help you connect with your needs.

Home visits are flexible and will be tailored to your needs on the day. Most mothers choose to use each home visit for a rose petal bath, meal and a chat.

The in-home spa experience is about 30 - 45 mins long (to fit around your baby's sleep.) If you don’t have a bath (or your baby is unable to settle without you), I can create the in-home spa experience with a beautiful foot bath.

Each visit will vary based on your needs of the day but may include: a rose petal bath – an in-home spa experience, meal preparation, baby massage instruction, support for physical and emotional recovery from birth, strategies for coping with sleeplessness, emotional support as you adjust to your new role (including partners, siblings and grandparents), breastfeeding or bottle-feeding support, managing visitors (including family), understanding the unique personality of your baby, and building confidence in your parenting style and skills.

Group Support
You’ll be able to meet with our online mothers group weekly where you will find connection, support and friendship. We’ll also do regular meet ups around Sydney. The fathers and partners group meet monthly and we also have regular picnics throughout the year for all the families to come together.

The group support element of this program allows you to meet like-minded families in safe spaces. You’ll have the opportunity to connect to your needs, and the ever-changing needs of your baby, and find a beautiful balance so you can truly enjoy being the mum and dad you want to be.

Group support continues until your baby turns one, but you’ll continue to be invited to our family picnics so you can stay in touch.
