“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers – strong, competent capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”

In 2002 I read an article about doulas and I really felt it was something I could do. The seed had been planted and began to germinate. In 2004 I left my corporate job and became a doula. I have never regretted my decision and have never looked back. Over the years I have learnt so much from the birthing process, the parents and each individual baby. They have all taught me that there is no right way – just their way. My aim has always been to empower the parents with knowledge that they need for the birth process and to build confidence in their abilities to labour and birth the way they wish to. My greatest joy is seeing a happy family taking their first confident steps into parenthood.
