I help guide women back to their power during pregnancy, birth and postpartum, so they remain present, intentional and in-charge of their experience.
In order to do that, you need guidance recognising your options and making choices aligned with your needs so that you remain the centre of your experience.
And I get it, declaring your needs (and what feel right) can feel super uncomfortable! Especially if you’ve spent a lot of your life pleasing others.
But you know that giving up your voice & truth in order to make others more comfortable, will remove you from being the active-participant of your journey – and that just feels so wrong, doesn’t it?
You deserve so much more than just ‘going with the flow’. I believe you deserve the space to understand the needs of your body, your baby while being bolstered by INFORMED decisions, and then being trusted & respected by your support team!
I know how it feels to no longer feel in charge of your birth. To feel as though the experts want to be the ones leading, and you just willingly follow along (even though you don’t understand). To sense a longing to speak up and choose what feels most right for you, because deep down, you know you’re capable of that.
Yes, there are experts who have knowledge you don’t – but their role is to provide that to you, and to then TRUST you’re capable to take what you need and land on actions & decisions that truly serve you and your child.
I want you to feel strong in your voice & connected to your inner-knowing so that you can boldly step forward on your journey.
(Remember, the way you felt during your birth will be with you for the rest of your life)
Working with me is not just about ticking off boxes in your childbirth prep. It’s about activating your voice, amplifying your trust within yourself, and committing to making supportive decisions that feel right.
So, how do we do this? Each journey is SO individualised, and my gift is understanding your unique needs and formulating guidance to suit.
We start with your Vision for Birth, which acts as your guiding light. It’s not about how it looks, but how it feels, which is something you can rely on regardless of how your birth unfolds.
It helps direct your considerations when presented with options or pathways to ensure it remains in total alignment with the needs of yourself and your baby.
From there, we do all the things like understanding the energetics, biology and physiology of birth & postpartum, and mark these with how you want to experience it, and then I’m there to guide you (using my experience, knowledge and gifts) to keep you plugged in to your power.
And during all this, I am right there with you, allowing you to take up whatever space you need.
I validate, I listen, I activate and I guide.
Feeling safe during pregnancy, birth and postpartum is PARAMOUNT. And I am committed to being someone who elicits this feeling.
Your birth is about YOU, not just your scrum-diddly-umptious baby. You are more than just a vessel.
You are a life-creating goddess and you have the right to be an active participant in your birth. This means YOU make the decisions and you deserve nothing less than support and validation through your journey!
I’ll be there to guide you, inform you, answer your questions, prepare you to expect the unexpected and continually check in and make sure…
You remain the center of your experience.
I’ll hold your hand, back you up, validate you, permit your tears, listen to you and guide you. I’ll hold space for you and honour you. I’ll witness you. I’ll hear you. And I will create a container of safety, free of judgment and shame.
With a listening ear, comforting touch & gentle words, I’ll soulfully guide you to find your own unique path, and to navigate it with strength and alignment.
I’m not here to give you the answers, but I’m damn good at helping you find the answers that feel freaking right within yourself!
Your experience with me as your doula, will leave you feeling safe, supported, loved, heard and acknowledged. And a bit (ok, A LOT) like a birthing-badass.
Know you are not expected to navigate this alone.
You are not expected to immediately agree (if at all) to every recommendation from your maternity care provider.
You are not expected to be a martyr, and sacrifice your needs & desires in order to make others feel more comfortable.
You are entitled to be supported. You are entitled to question and even decline. You are entitled to be lavished with encouragement, food, treats, gifts and treated like a goddam birthing queen.
Preparing for birth is so much more than getting your checklists ticked off.
The most IMPORTANT & IMPACTFUL work you can do, is continue to choose what makes you feel most safest & right….even if that means making others feel uncomfortable.
This radical commitment to your own needs & desires (which naturally consider the needs of your baby too!) is what it means to step into your power.
Your baby is not the only thing being born. You, Mama, are about to be reborn too.
And I’m here to graciously guide you through this transition, nourishing your body, mind and soul.
