My Mission

"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers- strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength."

- Barbara Katz Rothman

I am ON A MISSION to share the message of POSITIVE and NATURAL BIRTH with the world!  The way we bring babies into the world and nurture mothers throughout the process is INTEGRAL to a HARMONIOUS WORLD.  So many women are experiencing traumatic births and they CARRY THIS WITH THEM FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.  


I am so PASSIONATE about helping women to prepare for birth because I believe that this can CHANGE THE WORLD. Women and babies DESERVE a joyful beginning!  A positive birth can set the mother and baby up for a beautiful relationship and better bonding.  Our current maternity system does not support mothers in the way they need.  Women who CHOOSE to get more support (like having a doula) are more satisfied with their birth experience, have more success breastfeeding and are less likely to experience postnatal depression - now that's what YOU want for your birth journey, right?! :)


My role as a doula and childbirth educator is to CONNECT you to information and support so that you can prepare for and HAVE a positive birth.  My idea of a positive birth is embodied in the quote above.  It is a birth where the mother feels powerful, supported and confident.   Every woman deserves to feel EMPOWERED and TRANSFORMED by her birth experience, no matter what course her journey may take.

Whilst I focus on natural birth (and parenting) perspectives, I recognise that "natural birth" means different things to different people.  Because of this, I use the term more as a symbol of "positive birth" rather than a reference to a specific way to birth.  Besides, there is no "right way", there are merely choices. 

I hope that the ensuing pages offer you GUIDANCE, REASSURANCE and INSPIRATION as you prepare for birth and motherhood.
