What is a Doula and what to look for when you are seeking one -

Traditionally, a doula is a woman offering non-medical support and information to other women and their partners during labour and the post natal period. 

‘Doula‘ is a Greek word that came to mean “woman’s servant”.

A Doula believes in the entire process that you take for your labour and birth.  She believes in your so greatly.  She has got your back.

*  She is a great advocate for birth

*  She is a great listener

*  She doesn't judge or impose her own beliefs

*  She will teach you and your birthing partner how to cope with        labour and birth (Child Birth Education Classes)

*  She will work alongside medical professionals as a team

*  She trusts your instincts

*  She offers non-medical support

As the leading Doula in Brisbane and Sunshine Coast I promise to respond to your deepest emotional needs, stay with you throughout labour and birth and to create an atmosphere in which the birth can be as positive as possible.

A doula is also there as a support for the father/birth support/friend and will help the couple work together according to their wishes.

Birth is such a personal journey so we need to make sure we are a good match.  A connection of calm and trust between Birthing Mother, Birthing Partner and Birth Doula is very important.

If you engage me as your Birth Doula, we will be chatting a lot, emailing, texting and meeting for coffee. This is a life changing journey you are on, and only you know what you need, I'll provide information that unlocks feelings and emotions within you so you know how you want your birth to play out, what you do and do not want. We work through any fears and concerns and work around them.


Inclusions         

Two Prenatal gatherings at a coffee shop or my studio filled with love and everything birth related.

Exciting times ahead as we meet for a Spinning Babies ® Parent Class and Active Birth Class that  entails invaluable information for you and your birth partner.  This includes labour positions and breathe work, how to make you more comfortable.  This is a 3 hour class and be prepared for lots of laughter as we have a great time in every class.  Click here to enquire for more info.  


I am always here for you – call, text, email, my phone is always with me, ask me anything.

Creation of your birth plan is an exciting time, we write down everything as we discuss what you do and do not want, put it all together and when you are happy with it pop it in your labour bag.

I am honoured to be on call for you from 37 – 42 weeks. 

My role is emotional and physical support (non medical) I encourage you all the way. 

Labour and Birth attendance, I do not leave your side from when I am notified of established labour to when you are ‘all’ comfortable and settled in your ‘bubble of baby bliss’.

One post natal visit to debrief your birth and pre selected choices of meals that i will prepare in my Thermomix.


First in line for attendance in Pregnancy Yoga and Mums N Bubs Yoga class - when availability arises and costs do incur. 

I am that wonderful, nurturing, loving person with knowledge, wisdom and trust. I am the ‘glue’ that helps keep it all together. 

Your birthing partner is very important to me and they will be supported in every possible way. A Doula enhances your experience, working alongside your Midwife. We work together to help you, in life's most beautiful experience. 

I travel to wherever i am needed, hospital, birth centre or - home birth (with your private midwife present).

My promise to you is that i will support you in every way, you will not get lost in the system, i won't leave your side, you will have everything you need and i will continually tell you 'You've Got This!' 

There will be massage, breathe, movement, comfort measures, a whole lot of nurturing, love and expertise. 

I promise to respond to your deepest emotional needs, stay with you throughout labour and birth and to create an atmosphere in which the birth can be as positive as possible. 

A doula is also there as a support for the father/birth support/friend and will help the couple work together according to their wishes.
