My name is Kellie Hermes- I am a doula, body artist and mother of 4. Before I started my doula journey in 2012, I spent 16 years in the hospitality industry. Drawing from that experience and passion for being of service, combined with my newfound knowledge in holding space for women and families, I’ve expanded my role as ‘mother’ out into our community.

I had water births with all of my children. With lots of support from my own mother, midwives and partner, I found the experiences to be intense and profound yet calm and gentle. Now I bring my innate knowledge of the empowering nature of labour, birth and parenting to other women, partners and families.

I have developed sound knowledge of the roles that both natural and conventional medicine can play in pregnancy, labour and life and will support you to make conscious and informed decisions that suit you and your baby.

My journey into the doula world over the last few years has been a thoroughly enjoyable one. I’ve opened a door in me that feels right, accepting the ease and joy in my life. I hold a calm, joyful and safe space for women and families to welcome their babies into world. Being witness to each client’s perfect journey, I work with a sense of integrity and trust in the process.
