Birth Doula Service
If your heart's desire is to truly open to birth as a transformational experience - to fully embrace this rite of passage.... welcoming your precious child into loving, waiting arms.... I invite you to explore wise woman birth doula care with me.
Support and Guidance for a Safe, Healthy, More Comfortable, and Pleasurable Birth Experience
My commitment as your birth doula is to be fully present for you - trusting in your innate birth wisdom, so you can meet uncertainty with conviction and embrace labour with love, to experience the joy of giving birth!
Birth is a normal healthy experience in a woman's life, yet women's births involve more medical technology and interventions that they've come to expect. This over-medicalization of birth is being questioned. Implementation of new recommendations is in effect, which recognizes a doula's continuous one on one care as beneficial to birthing women.*
When you venture into the unfamiliar territory of birthing, having a solid, grounded presence to anchor to proves invaluable. So both you and your partner feel secure, I create a calm, centered 'holding' space. In my client's words a ‘been there, seen that’ presence which gives reassurance that all is normal.
I know that kind words inspire... warmth and humour encourage.... tender touch and intuitive guidance strengthens resolve. I've seen soothing comfort measures bring much needed physical relaxation so a letting go into the birth process happens, enhancing the body's release of pleasure hormones!
Birthing energy is a force to actively work with. It's instinctual. Women don't need to be taught HOW to give birth, but to SURRENDER & BELIEVE.
As a chosen member of your team I also enhance the support of your partner and care providers. Together we form an integrated, unified support system encircling and holding you at the center.
Service includes 'Hypno-Babies' and 'Hypno-Birthing' doula support for those who are studying those approaches.
