More Info
  • I am a private Antenatal Educator, Birth & Postnatal doula. I offer Breast Feeding Support, Labour massage, Baby Massage, Prenatal & Labour Rebozo, which promotes trust and ease through Optimal Foetal Positioning and more.
    I also work with other Doulas offering shared care and back up support.

  • About Me:

    I provide invaliable information, physical support and practical help. to over 70 families during my eight years in practice and have enjoyed helping women and their partners through the birthing process, helping to build confidence in the mother to be's natural abilities to birth and supporting choices in preparation to have the birth experience desired.
    I believe women should give birth where they feel most comfortable, whether it’s a home, water birth or a medicalised one in hospital.
    I have been an advocate for single women, have partnered women during caesarean section, nurtured women who have suffered trauma in previous births, support the father to be, making the journey to parenthood a positive and rewarding one so that the birthing process remains one of the most cherished memories.
    I regularly attend Home Birth Meetings, courses, workshops, and training sessions. I feel it is important to improve on my skills and stay current with related topics. This enables me to provide a true understanding of parent’s hopes, fears and expectations of birth and beyond.
    I travel up to an hour and you would be surprised at the area's I cover.
    Callie was an incredible support to me at the birth of my third child. I had experienced two quite difficult births and wanted to try to do things more naturally and have someone to hopefully support me and reduce my anxiety. Callie over exceeded my expectation in what a di=oula could offer me. She had huge empathy and was such a calming influence during the actual birth process. My experience was totally different this time and i was able to have the natural birth I had really hoped for. Callie has a wealth of experience and so many ideas and pearls of wisdom to help in every situation. I consider myself very lucky to have had her support and my husband is also extreemly thankful
