“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.
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.
