About me

I'm Amy, a Mama Bamba trained Birth Doula who passionately empowers and nurtures women through their birth journey.

I am in awe of the power and strength of our fearlessly and wonderfully made bodies and I love sharing with women that beautiful, positive births are absolutely possible and doable. I guide my clients to trust the process, trust their power and to stay present and loving however their birth unfolds.

Why hire me as your Doula?

In my role as your doula I will; 

Encourage, nurture & support you through out your pregnancy, labour & birth. During your pregnancy I am always just at the other end of the phone to answer your questions and offer emotional support. Throughout your labour I offer continuous guidance and attention to both you and your partner

Offer evidence based information. In my role as your doula I strive to offer you evidence based recourses and information. I encourage you to consider all your options and ask lots of questions to enable you to make informed decisions about your birth and to feel comfortable & confident advocating for the very best care.

Not replace your Birth Partner. In fact a vital part of my role as your doula will be to help your partner to recognise how important their involvement is in creating a satisfying and positive birth experience for you all.

Provide physical Support. I'm able to offer position suggestions for comfort and labor progression as well as hands-on comfort measures like comforting touch, counter pressure and breathing techniques. A doula’s skilled hands and positioning tools can often help a malpositioned baby find its way through the pelvis and into the birthing parent’s arms.

Give emotional Support. As your doula I help your family to feel supported and ease the emotional experience of birth, helping to create a space where the hormones of labor can work at their best. Whether a birth is completely unmedicated or medically very complex, every family can benefit from nurturing and connection at this tender, incredibly sacred time in their lives.
