Hello, I’m Laura Lee and I’d love to support you through your pregnancy, birth and early postnatal period! I believe birth is a transformative occurrence in a woman’s life, a sacred rite of passage that deeply affects her on many levels.

Our birth experiences stay with us for a lifetime and have a ripple effect on all our relationships; thus, it’s essential to make birth as positive as possible. As a doula, my role is to help you identify what a positive birth looks like for you – by providing the latest, evidence-based information; by giving you unconditional support; and by helping you to access your inner wisdom.

My role is not to speak for you but rather to help you find and nurture your own voice. By working together, we can create a safe and relaxed environment around birth, giving you confidence in your body and belief in yourself.

I’m a Certified Birth and Postnatal Doula based in Melbourne with additional training as a Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator, Childbirth Educator, Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage Therapist, Birth Hypnosis Instructor, Dancing for Birth™ Instructor and Babywearing Consultant. I’m a graduate of the Australian Doula College and have completed a Certificate IV in Doula Support Services. I’ve had the privilege of supporting women through birth at home, in birth centres and in both public and private hospitals.

To complement my training described above, I’ve completed additional courses to support women in pregnancy and labour, including: active birth, acupressure, aromatherapy, homeopathy, optimal fetal positioning, pelvic dynamics, patients’ rights in Victoria, rebozo work and VBAC preparation. To support parents in the moments to weeks after birth, I’ve studied Ayurvedic and Western nutrition, breastfeeding initiation and support as well as infant development, attachment, settling and sleep.

I’m currently completing a year-long course with the Association of Pre and Perinatal Psychology and Health so that I can better support parents from pre-conception through the first year after birth to optimise their baby’s physical and emotional well being. In addition, I’m pleased to provide Trauma-Informed Care in all aspects of my work, bringing a sense of felt-safety to my clients.

I am well-versed in the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman and her partner before, during and after labour. I also speak Spanish and bring a broad, multicultural perspective to my work based on my experience living and working in seven different countries (Spain, US, Switzerland, England, India, Hong Kong and Australia).

I’m also an enthusiastic volunteer doula with Birth for Humankind, a non-profit organisation providing free doula support to disadvantaged women, primarily refugee and asylum-seeking women as well as young women in Melbourne.
