How would it feel to have the positive and inspiring support of a woman who is experienced in giving birth and parenting and passionate about sharing her knowledge? How would it feel to know that this woman is just a text or phone call away any time you need to chat, vent, debrief or feel more confident at any stage on your journey? Maybe you want someone to be 'your person' that you can go to for anything during pregnancy and in those early weeks postpartum.
This woman is a doula, in this case, a virtual doula!
Perhaps you want the support of a doula but don't have one in your area, don't necessarily want an extra person at your birth or can't quite afford the cost of an in person doula. As your virtual doula, I will ensure you receive all of the emotional support, information and reassurance a doula is able to provide.
As your doula, I understand that you want to be heard and your desires valued on your journey through birth. I know that birth is a hugely transformative and powerful time in a woman's life and it is my wish that you are supported and nurtured through this time, emerging after your birth as a strong, confident and whole woman who believes in her body's innate ability and trusts her intuition as a mother.
As your doula, I will work with you to feel confident and informed on your journey towards birth and parenting. I will provide emotional, and informational support in pregnancy, during labour and in the early weeks of parenting. I will provide support to your birth partner so they are better able to support you.
I will help you plan for the birth you desire and plan for other possibilities to help your birth experience be as positive as it can be, regardless of the path it takes.
I will walk with you on the spiritual journey of pregnancy and preparation for birth and motherhood and provide as much support, guidance and focus on this area as you desire.
I will help you plan for the days and weeks following the birth of your baby so this time is as joyful, peaceful and nourishing as possible.
I will assist you in your communication with one another (if you are partnered) to help your relationship move into parenthood as a strong and secure partnership.
I will provide support to your birth partner so they are better able to understand your needs and support you - this is key. Ideally, everyone in your birthing space should be unconditionally supportive of how you wish to labour and birth. To have the consistent and positive support of your partner can make your birth a significantly more positive experience as well as strengthening your relationship in preparation for being parents together.
As a nutritionist, student yoga teacher and exercise physiologist, I will provide nutritional and herbal information for a healthy pregnancy and postpartum as well as suggest alternative remedies to support labour, birth and postpartum. I will provide guidance around exercise and physical preparation during pregnancy and for your postpartum recovery.
I utilise components from Hypnoirthing, Active Birth and other birth education methods to give you the best combination of tools and techniques to assist your labour. I can help you unpack your fears and doubts, allowing you to approach birth feeling calm and confident.
