I’m Mandi, a certified Doula, wife and mother to 3 adult children.


I have always been fascinated by the human body and how it works and have many years of experience with reflexology, massage and wellness. My passion for the birth process began through the learning I did during my own pregnancies and births. I quickly learnt that we all get our own unique birth story each time we birth.  


I was born in South Africa and moved to Sydney in 2003.   I had worked as a doula (I called myself a birth coach) for 2 years in Johannesburg and quickly realised I’d found my passion, but the immigration delayed my plans and I spent the next 17 years raising my kids and helping my husband build up and run our business. 


Now I am in the next chapter of my life and working as a Birth Doula in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs whilst also seeking to live a cleaner low tox and healthy life. 

As a Doula I honour the process and journey of birth and the impact it leaves on the family. It is one of the greatest transitions a person/family can experience.  

My intent is to be a great listener providing non-judgemental and continuous support before, during, and after birth.  All women should receive the continuity of care they deserve and this includes feeling supported, respected, informed, connected and safe.  

Healthy mums and babies are my objective while respectfully working alongside the midwives and other medical professionals in a supportive role to both the labouring mum and her partner.  


No matter how birth happens, it is our rite of passage into motherhood and we deserve forit to be an empowering, amazing and transformative journey.


I will share my knowledge (not opinions) and offer comfort measures such as relaxation techniques, effective breathing techniques, massage and positioning while we manage labour using all the tools at our disposal!


I hope we get to partner together and create a safe and nurturing space in which you and your partner feel supported, secure and held through this life changing time.

“Mandi and I clicked from the very beginning on our first meet and greet for a coffee. I was excited to have a doula to support me through such a massive milestone in my life and being from Ireland with no family here I needed someone to hold space for my partner and Mandi did more than that. She is a very kind, loving and supportive doula. She doesn't just tell you what you want to hear she really cares about doing the right thing by you and your family. She will support you to make informed decisions in respect of what you need and will step in when you need her to navigate a situation. I found Mandi very educated beyond her qualifications and has many interests in surrounding areas of birth. I would highly recommend Mandi to my friends and any clients of mine. Not only is she a beautiful person she also has an amazing spirit. She is one to have by your side for such a special time on your journey to birthing your baby and birthing into motherhood. “

"Having Mandi as our doula was the best decision me and my husband made for the birth of our second baby boy. She helped me plan and set my goals for labour and delivery as well as address my worries. She was very easy to communicate, and very compassionate and understanding. I was able to communicate and ask questions from time to time from when I first met with her until the delivery of my baby. I actually had the delivery when I was 36 weeks pregnant due to early rupture of my membranes. While in the hospital, Mandi has been following up with me regarding my condition regularly. When I knew that the baby coming out would be inevitable, I called Mandi at 11pm, informing her that I’m going to have the baby that night and after 20mins, she arrived in the hospital. My husband wasn't able to come right away as he was taking care of our son, but having Mandi there was more than enough. She was very helpful in making me feel comfortable, while alleviating my pain during labour. She helped me deliver my bub with ease. After, the delivery of the baby, she made sure I was settled in my room before heading back home. She even made a follow up visit at home and made sure I was fine. I highly recommend Mandi as a Doula. She gave me the peace of mind and motivation I needed throughout the pregnancy up to the delivery of my second child."

It’s difficult to put into words how incredible Mandi was and is to me. A fiercely independent single mum who very rarely asks for help, Mandi was referred to me having been told by enough professionals, family and friends that I really should have a support person with me for my pregnancy and birth. From the day we met I felt an immediate sense of calm. Mandi understood me beyond comprehension. She was the calm, steady sounding board I needed some days, a gentle ear when a fear would suddenly hit, the voice of reason and experience with so many parts of the journey I had no idea about. She pumped me up and calmed me down and on the big day, took an absolute beating while I squeezed the life out of her limbs through my contractions. I never in my wildest dreams imagined bringing a total stranger into the most intimate and vulnerable parts of my myself. It took one meeting with Mandi to know I was going to be safe and protected and cared for during the most important journey of my life. I thoroughly enjoyed my pregnancy and becoming a new mother felt so natural and perfect and I truly believe it was Mandi who led me into this role. Astrid xxxx , 2021 Mandi was a wonderful doula! She is a natural nurturer and made a special effort to get to know me and understand my birth preferences so she could be as supportive as possible. She went above and beyond to check in with me and provide helpful info before and after my labour. In addition she was also a maternal figure for me as my partner and I have no family in Australia. Would highly recommend :)
