I am birth and postnatal doula and a mindfulness and childbirth educator, as well as a mother who has had two challenging yet empowering births, so I feel passionately about supporting women and their families to have a positive experience through pregnancy, birth and early parenting. This includes a holistic approach promoting both physical and emotional wellbeing to fully embrace the innate wisdom of calm, instinctive birthing, where a mother feels that she is informed and confident in trusting in her ability to birth her baby and overcome any challenges. My most important role as a doula is to listen, inform, support your decisions and hold the space for you to have an incredible birth journey on whichever path you may choose to folllow.

I completed my training at the Australian Doula College, and I am also a certified Childbirth Educator with HypnoBirthing International. My support is flexible, individualised depending on your needs, and can include face-ro-face and/or virtual doula meet ups throughout pregnancy, during labour and birth, the fourth trimester and beyond. I can help to prepare you and birthing partner to feel at ease and confident by working with you to develop a comprehensive plan for the support you need at home as well as in your chosen birthing space. I also offer HypnoBirthing childbirth education in private or group sessions.

I am happy to travel up to 60 mins within the Mornington Peninsula, central/south eastern and bayside Melbourne areas.
