I am a mother of three adult children and granny to 3 beautiful babes. From a young age I have loved babies and the birthing experience, over the years I have gained a wealth of knowledge by attending births and actively listening to the birth stories of family friends. During my training as a doula I became excited by not only the physical aspects of the birthing process, but also the physiological aspects of birth and have been encouraged to further my knowledge of hypnobirth and calmbirth. I now embrace the opportunity to join you on your birth journey.
As your Doula I will meet with you twice prior to your birth enabling us to discuss birthing options available to you and help prepare a written birth plan.
I am available to you 24/7 during your estimated due month to take that call to join you in your birthing space. Following the birth we will meet again to debrief your experience. I will also give you my written journal of your baby's birth.
Statistics show that the continuous support offered by a doula is likely to decrease the likelihood of caesarean and various other interventions by as much as 60%
Statistics also indicate that doula support increases the chances of successful breastfeeding and enhanced bonding.
