Labour & Birth Doula Support
The ancient art of caring
It goes without saying that our modern and fast paced world is forever changing and evolving. These changes are seen within your birth culture, with both Midwifery and Obstetric practices. All of these changes impact the choices now available to you.
Therefore, you maybe searching for additional emotional support during birth preparation, birth and the postpartum years. This additional support is now presenting in the form of a Doula, which is an ancient custom. A Doula is a non-medical support person who assists you and your family emotionally prior, during and after birth. I’m unique, in that I’m offering a doula service with the skills and knowledge of a Registered Nurse, Certified Lactation Consultant and ‘Birthing From Within’ Mentor. Research suggests that, in having added support in the form of a doula improves maternal and infant health and lowers intervention rates, to name a few.

Yes, you still need a lead maternity carer...
Although I have these added skills as a Registered Nurse and Certified Lactation Consultant, my sole tie and primary responsibility is to you, as you hold the power at birth. Therefore, my role is directed by you dependent on what you require. I will collaborate with your Lead Maternity Carer as you wish. I do not take the role of your Lead Maternity Carer. The support that I provide for you is designed to assist you emotionally to find the skills to navigate through birth preparation, birth and parenthood as it unfolds for you.
