I’m not going to lie and say that this is your stock standard kind of doula service.
Hell, you may not even know what that is. And if so, that’s probably a good thing because the kind of dynamo doula support I weave into our intimate life-long relationship isn’t something that can be found elsewhere.
You pick me and I pick you, as two women invested in the same kind of revolution. That’s what makes what transpires so damn special.
As your doula through pregnancy, birth and postpartum (or solely through one of these stages if you choose), consider me the curator of your heart’s most fulfilling experience. There’s no promises of specific birth outcomes or scenarios (I’m no God Almighty), but what I can promise is this -
With me as your doula, you will be given every opportunity to feel the way you want to feel, no matter what transpires.
You will be well and truly cared for within a system where continuity of care is dire, no matter how much money you’re laying down.
Whether that be in the bathroom as you have your crisis of confidence, in the tears of sleepless nights postpartum, in the heated family conversations about your birthing choices, or in the crowded room filled with hospital staff that you never intended on having at your birth.
Whatever you choose, I’m in your corner.
Perhaps the first woman who has truly ever been.
Perhaps the only professional on your birth team who has the capacity to be.
Ready to catch you, carry you, caress you, in all the ways you’ve been dying to feel safe enough to receive.
I’ve got you. All of you.
Here’s a summary of what you can expect at each stage of the journey -
My ultimate intention during this time is to make sure you enter your birth space feeling so unwavering in your connection to yourself, your body, your baby and your power.
Yes, this involves the practical intricasies of birth and postpartum (like choosing a care provider, deciding on comfort measures, birth planning, knowing your rights and risks, and planning your 4th trimester and parenting intentions) but there’s no way I’m letting you navigate this sacred window of time all up in your head.
We dive deep into your body, explore core wounds and any ancestral or past birth trauma, we navigate your body’s relationship to surrender with embodiment practices, and use sensory play and visualisations to anchor into and alchemise what’s potentially going to stand between you and your dream birth.

As your birth doula, I am on call for you from 38 weeks (or earlier if needed), and am the ultimate birth doula wingwoman by your side through the whole birthing experience. This is the stage for your own rhythm and ritual to steal the show, and I’ll be there to bring you back to trusting that flow of yours, over and over again. Whatever you move through, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, I am there to coach you back to the heart of your power, your baby, your potent truth.
I’ll also be performing my sacred juju magic on your birth space, keeping you in your body and connected to your intentions, keeping my hawk eye open to the energy surrounding you and anything that may deter you from your true focus, and meeting you and your family's every need through the whole process. I also make sure you’re well fed, stress free, loved up and feeling clean and comfortable in your space in the hours following the birth, before I leave you to melt in all those new baby cuddles.
Whilst no two postpartum sessions are the same, and I strictly use my intuition to carve out these sessions in alignment with your truest needs (even the ones you don't even know you have yet), it’s important you know that they are not bound by any timeframe, nor are they simply a combination of ‘services’ that you could outsource. Yes, the basics are absolutely covered - your home will be cleaned and nurtured, you will be connected with the best referrals for any specialised support, your fridge will be filled whilst I get a warm pot of something cooking, and the showers you have whilst I cuddle your baby will be the best you’ve had in years. But our time together post partum goes way beyond that.
This is about revisiting and rewiring how you now receive as a mother. This is about feeling incredibly held in your reclamation and co-creation of your own uniquely crafted motherhood identity. This is about restoring the foundations of womanhood in your life as you navigate matrescence and rebirth yourself.
