"If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it."
I have been helping family and friends labour and birth for about 17 years and never had a title. The third birth I had with a family member with the same midwife eventually pulled me aside after the birth and wanted me to look into been a Doula, a very new word many years ago but I did and completely fell in Love with the Concept. Helping more women and families labour and birth, and every single one is different and unique. I did my course with Sacred Heart and started working part-time at Genesis Clinic and fell even more in love with this idea of Empowering Expectant families and Birthing their way. I myself have had a Natural Water Birth with Sue King many many many years ago and then had 2 Caesars 10 years later. I have been blessed to have experience both having my family around while I laboured and birth and then been in a room and feeling overwhelmed with ended in a Caesar. I am extremely passionate about Breastfeeding as well and believe that the support needed is very necessary and limited in many Health Institutions.
