  • I am a mentored birth doula and mentored postnatal doula.

  • About Me:

    I am a mother to two beautiful children and my fantastic experiences in becoming a mother have led me to where I am today. I discovered my own passion for birth through having my own children and the more I learn the more passionate I am about the care women receive and the part I can play in this. I feel so privileged to be able to spend so much time with my children, we love being out in the sun or muddy puddles, we love baking, creating and being with friends.

    I am amazed by how incredible women are and want to share with everyone that birth shouldn’t be something to fear but to be embraced. I am saddened by how our culture undermines women’s ability to give birth; I believe women are more than capable to carry their baby, give birth and raise them. I have trained to become a birth and postnatal doula as I am so passionate about the care women receive and being able to support women in their birth choices as every woman is entitled to give birth in the way she feels most comfortable. I love to be able to offer continuous support from pregnancy, throughout labour and birth and then postnatally. Understanding that subtle differences made during birth can have a huge impact is something I passionately want to share with new families during their journey into parenthood.

    I hope to be able to help couples prepare for birth so they can be clear about the decisions which may be needed and release any anxiety which may inhibit birth. I feel very privileged to be able to share with a couple as they become a family. I am a breastfeeding peer supporter and am able to support and offer help where needed; I have breastfed both my children into toddlerhood. As a postnatal doula I love the ability to mother the mother and meet her needs as she transitions into motherhood.
