Hi. I’m Angeline. I am new to being a birth Doula and post natal Doula but so very excited to start this new journey. I’m definitely not new to births though. I have had 8 of my own and been the support partner to my sister. I have had plenty of support with my first 5 births but after moving from Nz to Australia my 6th birth was very scary with a different set of birthing ‘rules’ and no family support. I would have loved to have known about what a doula was back then and had the reassurance of a doula and the support to make my wishes known, even though I thought I was so experienced and empowered.
I want to be there for the women who need another voice, to birth with your preferences up first, regardless of what might happen in birth. I want to make this passage of rites a time of calm, empowerment and confidence for you. Birth isnt fearful but amazing and natural. From a planned homebirth to a planned/unplanned C- Section I’ll be there for you!
And as a post natal doula, knowing how crazy it is with a new born, especially with other children, I would love to help out. With establishing breastfeeding, helping get meals up and running, general cleaning, supporting you in this emotional time after birth and less sleep, helping you get some rest even a massage with Essential oils. Need a shoulder to cry on and vent! Seriously I get this time, it can be hard and lonely please don’t be afraid to reach out for help. There was a time we had a village to help out but now we need to bring the village to us.

I can’t wait to meet you and be apart of this amazing chapter of your life! Extra bonus, my husband is a photographer for pregnant, birth or newborn photos and has seen his share of births as a very hands on birth partner to me.

A bit about me. I live in a bus, with my husband and 8 children. We travel slowly and homeschool/unschool. We meander wherever we want to go so I am happy to travel to you. This is our lifestyle so I’ll go where I’m needed. I regularly blog of where we are and what we are doing. Can’t wait to hear from you.

What to expect from me as your Birth Doula..........

Free Meet & Greet

It's purpose is to initially meet each other, talk about your specific needs and expectations for a doula, and confirm that we are the right fit. You need to be comfortable having me as your birth Doula. This is about you not me.

Anenatal visits

These meetings are individually customised to you and your family and are for us to get to know one another and for me to learn how I can best support you. Here we will discuss and celebrate your pregnancy, and the journey of growing your little baby. We may address concerns you have surrounding the birth, discuss previous birth and pregnancy stories, talk about your preferences for this birth, and answer any questions you may have. We will have the opportunity to learn and practice labor management comfort measures and techniques. Help get your birth plan written up so everyone knows what you want and need to happen. Partners are welcome to every meeting and are encouraged to attend!
