Would you like to share your Birth Story on my blog? As a doula, I always tell Mums that it’s a good idea to write their birth story down. You may have loved your birth… this is a great way to re-live it! It’s also beautiful to be able to read back over your story […]

What exactly is HypnoBirthing? Anyone who’s spoken to me in the past two years has heard me go on and on about it, but what exactly is it? To help people understand it, I thought I’d answer the most common questions I get asked about HypnoBirthing. If you have any questions which aren’t answered here, just […]

HypnoBirthing – My Journey

When I was about 15 weeks pregnant with my fourth daughter, I completed my training to become a HypnoBirthing practitioner. (I may as well make the most of the spotlight while I’ve got your attention… yes I do have spaces available if you’re in the south west of Western Australia and would like to learn […]

Does everyone need a doula

Today I thought I’d write about something that’s been on my mind for a while. Every time I hear the sentence “Every birthing mother needs a doula”, I cringe a little bit. I think what that person is trying to say is “If I was going to have a baby, I would need a doula”. […]

As a doula I see birth in everything apparently

I saw this, and my doula mind worded it slightly differently… Doctors restricted birthing mothers. They stopped birthing mothers from being able to move around and change positions during labour. They gave them all sorts of drugs. They told them they couldn’t follow their instincts and instead had to do as they’re told. The birthing […]

My back is soooo sore today… So I made up my own version of a belly support using my Rebozo. I can’t say I knew exactly what I was doing as it’s the first time I’ve ever tied a Rebozo around myself (it’s much easier to see what I’m doing when it’s on someone else’s […]

I always seem to have my “doula hat” on… Regardless of what I read, in my head it always seems to relate back to birth… Including this quote, which I saw on a page that (as usual) didn’t have anything to do with birth 🙂 I think I’ll be printing this pictured quote and sticking […]

My kids crack me up 🙂 I had a funny conversation with my 4 year old & 6 year old daughters while I was getting ready to go and visit a pregnant Mumma this week. Here’s what happened… Miss 6: Mumma, why are you going out again? Me: I’m going to go and talk to […]
