I want to be your doula because I believe in your instincts to birth your baby.
Birth is beautiful. Birth is raw and primal.
Navigating our maternal health care system can sometimes be confusing. I’m here to take out the confusion. To help you make informed choices. To make your voice heard. To support you with complementary therapies. To make sure that when you have birthed your baby you remember the experience as positive and full of magic.
In addition to birth doula services, I offer a 3 hour antenatal session for those who do not want a doula present at their birth, but who would like support preparing for their birth.
I am also working with newborn mothers and mothers who have travelled the path of parenthood before in the postpartum period. The postpartum period is such a delicate and opportunistic time for nourishment, replenishment and rest – see below for more info.
For more information please contact me.

- support with breastfeeding
- talk about oxytocin factors – how to make sure you have lots of this beautiful hormone in the postpartum
- how to combat isolation and find your village
- letting go of expectations and accepting the right kind of help
- baby wearing, why you might want to consider it and how to get started
- me cooking you delicious vegan meals specifically designed for the postpartum
- brainstorming challenges that you may be experiencing and helping you discover how to overcome these
- simple self care rituals that you can integrate into your new mama life
- walks out in the sunshine
