I am a mum to two beautiful children aged 22 and 20. They fill my life with joy, and it would be my privilege to partner with you and your family as your start your own joyful journey.
I have always had a passionate interest in the magical process of conception, pregnancy, birthing and bonding and the unimaginable beauty of breastfeeding. Although I cherish the memory of my two beautiful births, I feel that I would have made different choices had I trusted my body more, and had I been more educated about these choices. I breastfed successfully, but would have continued for much longer if it was possible and if I had had the support and confidence that I needed.
I am in awe of our beautiful bodies and the miracle of childbirth and it would be my honour to support you through the birthing experience of your choice, whatever that might be. I believe that a woman should be informed and educated about her choices throughout the pregnancy and the birth of her baby, so that her and her partner can make the most informed decisions during this sacred time. I believe that the father needs just as much support during this time as he will be your strength during this time of beautiful transformation.
To bring your baby into this world knowing that you have been loved and cherished should be a truly empowering experience.
I have been so honoured to be asked to share this unbelievably special time with a number of beautiful families. I have loved every minute of the time I have spent getting to know each mum and family. I have found a passion for supporting single or mums in a FIFO family, and visiting their homes to pack a bag, feed the pets or water the plants, is all a part of my service. Learning about their desires and forming a relationship, and often a friendship has been the most rewarding experience , and I would love to support you as you begin this incredible journey!

Services and Pricing information

Hi and congratulations.
As your Birth Doula, I would meet with you and your partner or support person, so that we could get a better idea of what you were hoping for in your birth. We usually meet up for a cuppa at a cafe or somewhere mutually convenient. If we decide that we would make a great team, then your due date would go in to my calendar and we would begin this incredible journey together.
My services would include 2-3 visits with you, usually in your home, before the baby arrives, where we would discuss everything from your birth wishes and your expectations and hopes for your birth to how you think you are going to cope when you bring your baby home.
Help with writing out a birth plan, optimal foetal positioning, hormones in birth, natural pain relief techniques etc.
I would be on 24 hour call, (which includes as many calls, emails and texts as you need )from 38 weeks.
Physical support before and during labour. Emotional support with as many chats and massages as you need.
A small lending library of fantastic books and the recommendation of helpful and interesting articles and videos .
Information handouts
I would be with you from the beginning of labour, or when you wanted me to join you, until after baby is born and you are both comfortable and well.
Essential oil massage during labour
Photos of the birth taken on your camera.
A visit in your home after the birth. If you'd like a debrief of your birth, this is a great time to catch up.
I am part of a lovely network of local Doula's and can put you in touch with any that offer other services like hypnobirthing and encapsulation.
