Your baby, your birth, your way…
Can you imagine a peaceful birth surrounded by those who believe in your ability?
Imagine as you near your birthing time you feel deeply connected to your baby and partner. You have faith in your body to carry you through the labyrinth of birth, and you are relaxed knowing you have a supportive doula sister to lean on. You are comforted by the work you’ve done together to prepare you for the journey of labour. You spend time envisioning yourself and your successful birth. You are excited and at peace.
A doula maintains the role of the Traditional Aunty, as a helper to the women during birth, providing physical, emotional, spiritual and informational support to you on your journey through pregnancy, birth and into early parenting.
Whether you’re a first time mama or birthing again….
I know you are strong, capable and can birth this baby.
When it’s time to meet your baby, I bring a calming energy. I’ve been there, I’ve witnessed many births and have held many hands. You have a familiar face to look to for encouragement. A voice of reassurance and comfort. I take the expectation off mom & dad to know the answers to, “Now what? Is this normal?” So you can let go of worry and birth in peace.
