Why did you decide to become a Doula?
I am a Doula because I believe it matters deeply how babies are born into this world and how their mothers come to be. Ultimately, I want to help contribute to better birth outcomes and more satisfied parents - so families can leverage from their birth experience (not just heal from it).
How long have you been a doula?
My Birth Doula training through the Australian Doula College was in early 2018 and I have been supporting births ever since. I suppose my real training started when I had my own children - a son in 2011 and daughter born 2014. They are my greatest teachers!
My role as a Doula is to inform, support and nurture women as they prepare to cross the threshold of birth. When families are educated and given options on the physiological process of birth, they understand that this is something we have been doing for hundreds of thousands of years. It is beautiful, it is natural, and there is no right or wrong way to give birth. Only your way.
It is a privilege and a gift to be beside a woman when she takes her first breath as a mother to the child being born. Whether first or last born, I love helping curate the space intended just for them.
In a few words, I would describe myself as:
Passionate, lover of spice, courageous, maternal, attentive, balanced, empathic, insightful, dedicated, earth-focussed.
I chose to study with the ADC specifically because…
I sought to specialise my prenatal yoga classes to include birth education and preparation because I want to empower women with these tools and also connect them with each other before they transition into motherhood land. I believe in the importance of continuity of care and being able to offer birth Doula and postnatal support aligns with my purpose and vision.
I chose to study with the ADC after hearing the founder of the college, Renee Adair, share her vision, wisdom and passion for resurrecting the lost art of ancient midwifery. I believe Renee is a pioneer and her team at the Australian Doula College will fuel a positive birth movement and drive doula’s into mainstream Australian birth practise. I am thrilled to be a part of this.
