“ Support is unconditional. It is listening…. not judging, not telling your own story. Support is not offering advice… it is offering a handkerchief, a touch, a hug…caring. We are here to help women discover what they are feeling… not to make the feelings go away. We are here to help a woman identify her options… not to tell her which options to choose. We are here to discuss steps with a woman… not to take the steps for her. We are here to help a woman discover her own strength… not to rescue her and leave her still vulnerable. We are here to help a woman discover she can help herself… not to take that responsibility for her. We are here to help a woman learn to choose… not to make it unnecessary for her to make difficult choices.
The ADC proudly provides an affordable, personalised service for our clients who choose to have one of our beautiful students walk beside them on their journey.
When a client makes contact with the College, they work with the capable and experienced Bronwyn, our Doula Services Manager. Bronwyn has mastered the daily management of our Doulas and the job board and makes it her mission to match our clients with a Doula we know is available over their required dates and meets the clients needs.
We do not send our student Doulas unless we believe they are ready and the College provides a 24/7 on call service for our students, so they can speak to a qualified, experienced College educator/doula anytime they need the support.
