Passionate about providing doula support to families during pregnancy, birth and early parenthood, and I feel incredibly privileged to positively contribute to their experience. I have 4 teenage children and had a doula at each of my births – so I know first hand how valuable doula support is! I understand that this journey is one of conflicting emotions - excitement, fear, hope, overwhelm, love…. with my support you will be listened to, cared for and guided through it all.
Originally from the UK, I’ve lived in 3 countries and understand the challenges of birth and parenting without much family support. This is why I host regular coffee mornings and what drives my involvement with the Positive Birth Movement, I love connecting women and building community - what's that phrase.... 'when women support each other, incredible things happen' - it's so true!
I love learning and continue my professional development by attending various courses, seminars and professional meetups – adding skills to enhance my service and making sure that I keep my information and practice up to date.
I am intuitive, calm, practical and nurturing. My approach is to support my clients with an open mind, delivering impartial, evidence based information and support.
I bring a ‘bag of tricks’ to each birth but my favourite tools are my heart and my hands…
I am a Certified Hypnotherapist and undertook my doula training with the Australian Doula College here in Sydney.
I hold certificates in Aromatherapy, Emergencies in Childbirth, Acupressure and Spinning Babies techniques. I firmly believe that food is medicine and am currently working towards a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy.
I am a proud Member of the Doula Network of Australia and am familiar with the content and teachings of She Births®, Calm Birth and Hypnobirthing Australia.
I have spoken at a recent Doula Conference and regularly present a workshop called Confident Birthing on Sydney’s North Shore and Inner West.
