I have two amazing sons, and two amazingly different birth experiences. This made me appreciate just how much the right support can impact a birth experience. I discovered the wonderful role of doula in march 2013 I took this journey after being asked by family and friends to be their birth partners and found myself falling in love with the birth process more and more. I learned and experienced something new and wonderful every time I supported a birth with them and am still learning. We are all forever students in life after all and birth is a great example of this! I instantly felt very connected to the role of birth companion. I have had the honour of being present for the births of many of my nieces and nephews and I am so grateful for the path these wonderful women and births have led me on!
I truly feel that the birth is as much of a right of passage for the mother as the baby, as a mother of two I understand first hand the importance of respect, compassion, encouragement and support during and after the birthing process. As a doula I am dedicated to helping every woman I support feel safe, empowered and in control of her birth no matter where or how she chooses. I respect that every woman,baby and birth is different so take the time to get to know you and the energy of your birth and work with you. My aim is simply to help you meet your baby in the most loving way possible.
I am always updating, improving and building on my skills by attending training days and workshops.
Postnatally I am passionate about nurturing and caring for the new mother. I believe that birth is a rite of passage, sacred and precious and should be treated as such. This is why I love to offer simple acts of caring such as massage, good food and lots of listening and compassion. I support you in your baby moon and can offer breastfeeding support.
