I do not empower you.
I recognise that you are powerful.
*I am not taking on birth doula clients until my current nursling ages somewhat. I will keep you posted. If you are interested in persuing any pre or postnatal support or planning please get in touch*
After falling pregnant with our first child in 2012 I soon realized that pregnancy and birth are two of the biggest transitional life events that a family will experience. The experience of which is long lasting and far-reaching.
Pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood, each as their own right of passage, offer a gloriously unique opportunity for profound transformation.
As a doula I provide women and their families with emotional, educational and physical support throughout their journey through pregnancy, labour and birth, and the postnatal period.
Lets dive deep!
I understand that every woman and her family have different desires and expectations surrounding birth and I see it as my role to help you discover what your ultimate experience look like. We then work towards making that happen whilst also acknowledging that birth in all its messy, crazy, beautifulness can be unpredictable; so we simultaneously prepare for all possible outcomes.
We will delve as deep as you are willing to go into all dimensions of pregnancy, birth and the post natal period. We will explore the emotional, spiritual, physical, physiological and shamanic dimensions and look at how they all weave together to create your complete experience.
Knowledge is power.
I will be a constant, trusting support walking beside you throughout your journey, available to work through any fears, answer any questions and provide evidence based information.
Wherever you choose to birth, what ever your circumstances or wishes, I am here to journey beside you on this transformative adventure.
I am present, flexible, calm, respectful, transparent, trusting, connected and compassionate.
