Doula ~Ancient Greek word meaning “a woman who services”.


Birth Doula
“As a mother, I understand how important it is to be supported throughout pregnancy, childbirth and immediately after birth. I believe it is also important for the partner and/or family of a birthing woman to be supported and assured throughout the birth and into the postpartum.

As a woman, I am passionate about being that support for other woman and their partners. You will never hear me say “all that matters is a healthy baby” because although this is, of course, what we all want, the journey into motherhood is extremely important and can have a lasting effect on how a woman feels about herself and her baby.

As a doula, I provide unconditional and non-judgemental support and encouragement to both the labouring woman and her partner and/or family throughout labour, delivery and after childbirth. I aim to help women cope during labour with the use of tools such as; massage, pressure points, Aromatherapy, Homeopathy, my trusty Rebozo and a TENS machine. Along with support and encouragement, these are just some of the tools that can help a woman manage the challenges of labour and delivery. I also provide information to aid in the decision making-process and can help to demystify many of the processes and procedures offered during childbirth. I work well with midwives, doctors and obstetricians and attend home and hospital births.”
