Private Doula

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step."

I have always been passionate about babies and birth.  I prefer the more holistic approach to pregnancy, birth and post-partum care and therefore chose to study through Childbirth International.   I started studying to be a doula after my firstborn little girls' birth.  She very sadly passed away during labour, but I was blessed to birth her gently into this world at home with my midwife, doula and mom by my side.  It was a really beautiful birth experience and we got to spend so much time with her.  I have subsequently had a little rainbow boy - my little miracle!  I thoroughly enjoy helping moms-to-be make informed decisions about their birthing options and seeing how empowered they become when given all the facts without bias. I believe that birth is a normal physiological process and an important journey in a mother and father's life.

Training

I worked with the notorious midwife - 'Sue King' for the past 3 years as her assistant and attended numerous births with her as a doula. I have also completed Midwife - Jacky Bloemraad-de Boer's 'Advanced Doula Training', as well as doing rebozzo and cupping workshops.  I have also attended Midwife - Ruth Ehrhardt's Helping babies breathe course.
