Every new parent needs a helping hand. Fortunately, there are two types of experts who can help expectant families make the transition from pregnancy to parenthood: doulas and midwives.

Pregnancy, birth, and parenting are one of life’s greatest journeys.

I became pregnant with my first baby whilst living on the west coast of Australia when all my family and friends were back home on the east coast. When pregnant with a second baby, at home, and surrounded by loved ones, I still felt something was missing. I wanted to laugh and enjoy being with family and friends, not be leaning on them.

I believe that having a doula with informative information, unwavering support, trust, and respect for your wishes, leads to more fulfilment and joy in your birth and post-partum journey.
