Benefits of a doula

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.

Benefits of a doula
  • Shorter labour
    Reduce your labour’s length by 25%.
  • Less need for drugs
    Syntocinon use reduced by 40%.
    Epidural use reduced by 60%.
  • Less surgery
    Reduce your chance of a C-section by 50%.
I can be with you for the entire length of your labour if you wish, unlike your midwives or OB who may come in and out of the birth room as they juggle other patients. That makes you feel much more supported.

Aren’t doulas a bit hippy-dippy?

Some are but I’m not.

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.
