More about me
My intention as your doula is to help you get the information you need to enable you to develop your own clear and informed idea of your birth preferences and how they might apply to different birth scenarios, as well as supporting you emotionally and physically throughout your labour and birth.
I want you to feel fully informed, strong, positive, fearless, confident, and loved as you begin one of the most challenging phases of your life. We’ll also consider your post-natal recovery plan, and if you hire me as your post-natal doula, as well as or instead of as your birth doula, I will be there to support your sumptuous, healing fourth trimester. All of my support will set you up for your sustainable, joyful parenting journey.
I am flexible, adaptable and responsive to your needs in any circumstance. My own parenting experience has taught me many things, not least to bend, adapt, respond and take responsibility for the events that challenge me. I was not fortunate enough to know about doulas when I birthed my own children, but if I could turn back time and talk to the pre-parent woman I was in my early twenties, I would give myself three pieces of advice; Hire a doula, learn how to baby wear and find/get to know your nearest breastfeeding support group before your baby is born!
