I will provide emotional and physical support throughout your labour and into new parenthood. You can lean on me. I will back up your choices and help you have the birth you desire.
It’s my job to stay up to date on the latest research about best practices in pregnancy and labour. I’ve read all the books and can recommend the ones you’ll find the most enjoyable. I regularly attend workshops and conferences to learn all I can to help you have the best birth experience possible.
With over twenty years’ experience caring for newborn families and seventeen years as a birth doula, I have seen if not it all quite a lot. I have been where you are now and made it through, and I know you can too. I remember what it’s like to be scared, excited and nervous of birth and what comes next and can empathize with you as you move through your labour into new motherhood.
I will help you sift through all the conflicting information out there about birth and beyond and lay out the risks and benefits for you with no agenda of my own. I don’t practice aromatherapy, I won’t try to balance your chakras and I don’t expect you to eat your placenta. But if you want to do those things, I know who to call.
