Welcome to my page I am so happy you are here! Firstly Let me introduce myself. I am Cherene and I am a birth and postnatal Doula. After the birth of my first child I realised the lack of support I received, the lack of empathy, care and attention. It wasn’t right, and I wanted to do something about it. This led me onto breastfeeding courses, labour, birth and all things pregnancy and baby related. My passion grew and grew and I knew when I heard the word doula and what it represented, I knew I had found my calling.
After giving birth everyone naturally worries and fusses over the baby, but who fusses over the birthing parent.
After your body has gone through expelling a human being, it can be emotionally and physically draining, and sometimes you just need a moment to catch up with yourself.
My role as your doula is to be there for you, giving you all the support, encouragement and keeping your oxytocin flowing.
I will be there for you during your pregnancy giving you all the information you need and supporting you with your birth preferences. I will be there to guide you through your labour hold your space for you and be the positive energy in the room that you will need to breathe your baby out. Protecting your golden hour and making sure you are relaxed, content and happy. Allowing that time to be with your baby and bond with them in your own private space. Ensuring your dignity is respected and stepping in to be that voice if you or your birthing partner are unable to advocate for yourself.
I will provide my undivided attention and continuity of care towards you and will help you to recover during the days after you have given birth. Ensuring you are coming back to a clean, tidy house and your meals are prepped and ready for you to eat when you want them.
As a doula my main goal is to teach, prepare and empower parents so they have control over their body and their birth, making them informed about their choices and giving them knowledge on how their body works. I will motivate you and be there to help you have your birth environment as you wish.
I will be on hand to help with feeding, make sure the birthing partner is also well rested so they can be at their best for you, when you need them. As your doula my main priority is making you feel comfortable and confident with how ever you choose to birth.
I want my clients to feel special and be treated like they just birthed a human being. I want them to acknowledge their strength, how amazing their bodies are and the fact that they are great.
