Hey there, I’m Hailey Johnson, owner of Doula by Nature. I’m a doula, a menstrual coach, a mother, and a keen advocate for women. I live in Forrest Beach, but I service a large area of the southwest of Western Australia.
I am a doula because women have been deprived of a voice in the birthing world. I want to re-educate women on all the wonders of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. So, I aim to be giving you the confidence to stand up for your choice and feel comfortable with all forms of birth even if it deviates from your birth plan because you were able to make confident, informed choices. This is important to me because women are born with the gift of birth, reclaiming their rights to their birth should be higher on everyone’s agenda. Birth and postpartum are milestones in a mother’s life, and these need to be supported with village alongside accurate and current education.
My strengths are my drive to always be learning and that I have a nurturing heart, I will always strive to do my best for my mums.
I can hold beautiful ceremonies such as a mother blessing or a Matrescence ceremony. I also hold a monthly mothers circle which I would love you to be a part of. My love of yummy food also allows me to be able to provide a Ayurvedic postpartum meals service! There are so many other services I provide but in the end they all aim to help make you feel loved, supported, cared for, and heard in one of the most significant times in your life.
I have done extensive training to be where I am today. Here is a list of my ever growing pool of knowledge:
- In-person doula training with Vicki Hobbs of the Doula Training Academy
- Further online study through Doula Training Academy
- Postpartum doula course with Julia Jones from Newborn Mothers
- Amberley Harris Breastfeeding Course
- Julia Jones Breastfeeding Course
- Milky business best feeding for professionals
- Conscious Conception by Women’s Wisdom
- Cyclical School – the Menstrual Cycle Coaching Course by Jema Lee
- And SO many more!
As a doula I am a key part of your birth and postpartum preparation. I will be supplying you with the most up to date information so you can make confident, informed decisions. I will be there to give you and your partner skills to achieve a more comfortable labour. I will be the shoulder you can lean on emotionally and physically as we go through the changes and rites of passage into motherhood.
