My earliest memories of growing up in Tasmania, are listening in to the conversations of my mother and grandmother as they debriefed the births they had attended as support women to birthing mums.
I have known since childhood all about the process of pregnancy and birth, it was a discussion that we seemed to continuously have. I’ve always known that the female body is incredible, it was celebrated with me as my mum shared how she had helped a woman find her inner strength, how she brought calm to the birth space and helped a mum believe in her body’s ability to birth her baby.
It was not at all unusual for me to have my mum as my doula right beside me for each pregnancy and when I birthed my five children. My mum taught me firsthand how the continuous support of a doula could make all the difference in believing in myself.
With my mums’ example as a guide, I began encouraging couples through their pregnancies and births in 2002 and since then I’ve been honoured to share the intimacy of birth with countless couples.
My mission is to provide women with the knowledge, support and resources they need to have positive and calm birth experiences, ones that will empower them as mothers and help them find the strength within themselves to not only give birth to their babies confidently, but mother them in the same way.
Each birthing mother has her own goals – different from the last, so my aim is to find out what’s important to you and what your birth desires are so I can support you to achieve them by offering continuous emotional, physical and practical support without judgement of your choices.
You can tell me what’s important to you and what your birth goals are and I’ll help you use and build your inner strength so you are ready for birthing your precious baby.
When you are faced with decisions or crossroads or curve balls, I will share evidence based information with you so you can make the best choices for your unique situation and I’ll guide you as you understand your options.
I spent the first 40 years of my life in Tasmania. I have been married to David for 20 years and we have 5 beautiful children. We now live in the Perth Hills with 2 happy dogs and 6 beautiful egg-laying hens. When I am not homeschooling the youngest 3 of our kids, I love bush walking and pottering about in my veggie and flower garden. I love food and different cultures and I love tea.
Please contact me and we’ll meet over a tea or coffee to chat some more.
