I expcept you are excited to be welcoming a new baby-human-being into your arms and into your family, but I am sure you have your doubts and fears too.   Whether its your first, second, third (or more baby) having a birth doula has huge benefits for you, your baby and the whole family.

You want your baby to be born into love and for him/her to feel safe, connected and well.

You want your birth experience to be one that you cherish for years to come.

You want more than to survive birth but to have support for your birth experience from someone who knows, respects, cares, listens you and your whole family!  Support that honours who you are as a whole person, that sees birth as the rite of passage it is, not a medical procedure.   To  be able grow in love and connection through this amazing time!

Hurray!

I believe in you! …. Birth is an inner journey of transformation, it is sacred and it is the unravelling and remaking of a person.

We birth ourselves as new mothers at the same time as we birth our babies.

I believe that a doula is loving guide through this transformation… the doula lights the path and holds the new mother’s hand as she walks her unique path.

 

Birth Doula - You can get birth support with me both in person and via online packages ... read more here:

You may know deep in your bones that this process is deeply imprinted in your body wisdom, but how to access that wisdom?

You may know that with the right support and the right internal and external environment, birth can be an amazing experience!   This is actually your birth-right and your power.

Having a doula doesn’t guarantee a certain type of birth outcome but what I can offer you is continuous care throughout the process. The research shows that not only does continuous care actually improve outcomes for mamas and babies, it also increases how the mamma feels about the birth for the rest of her life.
