Like all women, my birth journeys are vivid memories and mine have traveled with me through time and across countries.  My three children are grown and were born on two continents but my experiences shaped my belief that there was more and better for birthing women and their partners.
Looking for a way to support younger women and their partners I become a Certified Doula through DONA and I am a believer in a women’s ability to birth, calmly and with confidence, to trust in her innate ability.
As a Doula my role is to support and encourage women and their partners to be fully informed of their choices about the type of birth they truly want.  To give emotional and physical support, to encourage and guide.
I am honoured to work with women through natural birth, inductions and caesarean sections – and believe that being invited into this private and intimate experience is a sacred trust.
