I have a nursing background of three years. I always had the intention to move across into midwifery, however, I just had a strong feeling at that time that it wasn’t the right fit for me.

I ended up traveling overseas with my husband. After our return to Australia and I completed my postgraduate studies in Montessori primary school teaching.

After I completed my first year of teaching with the most magical bunch of little people. We then discovered that I was pregnant and I began the magical yet incredibly challenging journey in becoming a muma. After a very difficult pregnancy, I somehow managed to pull off a completely wonderful birth. I had the incredible support of my beautiful husband but also my own amazing muma who also attended our Lamaze childbirth classes with us. She basically filled the role of a doula. I had so much love and support, they held the space for me in such a beautiful way I felt so supported and empowered to birth my little girl. It was through this experience that I also birthed myself as a mother. Feeling empowered, supported, capable and loved.

From this moment I knew that I somehow wanted to get back into this magical world of birth. I began furthering my yoga teaching practice to specialise in pre and postnatal pregnancies. I am now a fully qualified doula working towards my registration with DONA International. I have also almost completed my Placenta Encapsulation Training through APPA. I still also provide relief work from time to time for our local Montessori primary school (which I still most definitely love).

I am now a very happy muma to my 2.5-year-old little ray of sunshine. I have to pinch myself as to how lucky I can be to have all of these wonderful little passion projects that I get to call ‘work’ and to be able to fit it all around the most wonderful and important thing in my life … my family.

Additional Information

I am so lucky to be fulfilling my dream job in supporting mumas and partners during the most wonderous and transformational time in their lives, the birth of their child.
Whether you are a first-time muma or your family is growing, my objective as a birth doula is to provide emotional, physical and informational support throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period.
Pregnancy can be really hard and so very unpredictable. In a way of easing some of that stress and sometimes even fear, I will work with you and your partner to build your confidence in making decisions by helping you gather accurate information and facilitate communication with your birth team.
During labour, I will calmly guide you and your partner in using a variety of different relaxation techniques and comfort measures tailored to your personal needs. This will allow you to stay focused and confident in your ability to birth your child.
I would be honoured to support you in creating the positive and memorable birth experience you deserve.
Please contact me for a free initial meet and greet.
