As a mother of two I found myself completely lost and in need of support and guidance that was unavailable in our current system. Unaware of what pregnancy was outside of eating well. I found countless mothers had little idea of how to prepare for a smooth natural birth, how to prepare their mindset for the birthing process or how to take advantage of our natural and powerful ability to give birth keeping happy and relaxed in the process.
I now work with expecting new mothers to guide them through the pregnancy journey offering evidence based information and step by step support to achieve a smooth and empowered pregnancy.

Why do i need a doula?
A doula educates and provides a service in which many moms are in need of during this time, as there is a lack of antenatal sessions and someone to ask the "is this normal" questions?
There is no support in anyone to turn to for evidence based information, or anyone to teach you how a baby is actually birthed and about your hormones during birth? A lack of support in teaching you how to write different birth plans for different situations or what to expect in a c-section. We help overcome your fears and
We explain the pathophysiology of birth so you and your birth partner understand exactly how birth works, we teach your birth partner how to advocate for you and teach them how to support you during labour and birth to help ease your pain.
What are the benefits of having a doula?
Studies have shown that with a doula present;
40% reduction of oxytocin use
40% reduction in forceps and vacuum
25% labours are shorter,
60% reduction in epidural requests
50% reduction in cesareans
Confidence in birth comes from knowledge and a positive strong mindset.
How do you deliver this support?
This support is offered virtually, 4 x 60 minutes sessions.
What do the sessions cover?
Sessions cover a range of topics including the science of why the mind sees birth and how to take control. Fears and how we can overcome them using this technique. Education on what to expect and how to nurture your body. How your birth partner can physically support you during your birth to help ease any pain, breastfeeding and newborn care. Labour stages and birth physiology. Knowledge decreases fear which decreases tension- which leads us to an ideal birth.
