After nearly a decade of supporting women during the wondrous yet sometimes tumultuous time of pregnancy, birth and motherhood, I understand your need to be heard, your need to work through information to find a path that is right for you, and your need to feel nurtured. I am a certified Birth and Post-Partum Doula and a certified Childbirth Educator facilitating both breastfeeding and birthing after caesarean workshops. I specialise in working with and supporting women who have previously experienced a difficult birth.

Birth Support Package - $2,300

My Birth Support Package will provide you with unconditional emotional care, evidence-based information and practical support throughout your pregnancy, labour and birth, and into the early weeks after your baby is born. During your pregnancy, together we will identify your own needs and desires - find out what matters to you - and work towards ensuring you feel a sense of confidence and strength in yourself, your body and your baby.

​Birth Support Package includes:
* four visits during pregnancy (approx. three hours each)
* regular email/telephone support through your pregnancy
* access to my doula library and other book/video recommendations
* access to my peer support Facebook group “Positive Pregnancy | Better Birth”
* personal support in labour until after baby is born
* after birth visit, multiple times if required, approx three hours in total, during the first six weeks (additional support after this time can be negotiated if/as required for an extra fee)

In addition, as part of my Birth Support Package I’m thrilled to offer three expert bonus sessions to you. These optional sessions are designed to complement the time we spend together walking your path to labour and birth, and are available to you if you feel they will benefit your experience of preparing for birth and mothering.

Single Consult Session - $190 (approx. 3 hours)
In this single session we will work out together what is worrying you and find the right path forward, so you can feel relieved and hopeful. Or, if you would like to be introduced to a taste of doula support, this session provides an ideal opportunity for you to experience how my Birth Support Package will benefit you in your pregnancy and birth.

Additional Information

Exploring Birth after Caesarean Workshop - $180 (including partner)

Have you had a previous caesarean, and been told that for your next birth you should book an elective caesarean – but you’re not entirely comfortable with that? Or are you planning a vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC), and are worried you won’t find support?

​If you would like to find confidence, information and clarity about birthing after a caesarean, you are invited to participate in this innovative and unique two-session workshop.

In this personalised class, you will:
* Gain clarity about your options, by examining and easily de-mystifying safety statistics for VBAC or repeat caesarean
* Explore what choice is right for you, by learning valuable decision-making skills
* Learn how to talk with your care-provider, and what questions to ask them, to ensure you are supported
* Discover what helps or undermines how your body works in labour and birth
* Feel positive about your choices. Be confident and able to decide what you want in your birth

This informative, enjoyable and enlightening workshop has been carefully crafted after almost a decade of experience working with birthing women and their families. It focuses on ensuring women find a way to approach their birth after a caesarean feeling informed, calm and confident.

Confident Breastfeeding Class - $60 (including partner)

An informal class for women who are pregnant, newly breastfeeding, or wish to learn more about a previous breastfeeding experience. Breastfeeding with confidence is about more than knowing how. It’s about learning to cut through the clutter of ‘dos and don’ts’ in baby care, including infant sleep information, to understand what supports - and what can undermine - breastfeeding your baby. Cost of class also includes a follow up phone conversation within six months of class, for breastfeeding support.

Birth, Mother, Woman Retreat - $120
Join our lake house retreat, an intimate gathering of women, focused around our journeys into and through motherhood. For every mother, at any time.

​A respectful space to feel supported and uplifted by fellow women. Discuss and learn while exploring ideas, opinions and stories. Our Lake House is a beautifully appointed spacious cabin, with a deck overlooking the peaceful lake, situated about 80kms from Darwin. A delicious vegetarian organic lunch will be shared.
