When your doula is a registered health professional,
you gain the transformative experience of beautiful birth within the safety net of modern medicine.
As your doula, I’m here to help you have a positive birth experience. I provide emotional and hands-on support for you, holding space where you feel heard, respected and nurtured.
I help you and your partner to learn about labour and birth, communicate your wishes, navigate a busy hospital system and welcome your baby into the world as nature intended.
I’m a health professional trained to postgraduate level. I’m registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency as a chiropractor. I believe in evidence-based practice and think that modern medicine has many benefits.
I also think that we’ve over-medicalised birth and turned it into something that happens to you rather than through you in the middle of a complex, pressured health system where your medical team is also caring for many other labouring women.
When you hire me, you get the best of both worlds: a trained health professional who believes in supporting and empowering you through the transformative experience of birth.
I’m here to create a supportive nest for you, a key member of your tribe as you journey through an empowered pregnancy, birth and motherhood.
I’m here to connect you with mothers down the centuries who have birthed with the support and encouragement of more experienced women.
I’m here to help you get physically, mentally and emotionally ready for birth and to build your confidence in your body’s ability to deliver your baby.
I’m a registered chiropractor, qualified childbirth educator and birth doula with training in spinning babies, active birth and pre and postnatal yoga.
