Do you feel like you need extra support on your birthing day ?

Or does your birth partner feel like they need support, to be able to best support you? 

In a society where birth is often deeply feared and considered as a medical event that sometimes happens naturally, I have found my calling in supporting women to reconnect, trust and love themselves throughout this sacred and often challenging time of giving birth and becoming a mother. I can provide continuous support throughout labour and birth, helping to create a sense of consistency and stability during a time that can be stressful and uncertain.

I believe that anyone coming into your birth space will have a significant impact on your birthing day (positive or negative) and that is why I choose to only support those clients in birth that I have already formed a relationship with throughout The Positive Birth Program. I want to ensure that our values align and that I can only add benefit to your birthing day.

While I choose not to identify as a “doula” in the traditional sense of being your advocate, my role as a secondary support person aligns with providing physical and emotional support, as well as holding space for your as the birthing mother and your primary partner. By offering tools, techniques, education, and confidence-building exercises, I empower you and your primary birth partner to advocate for yourselves, make informed decisions, and when you own your choices and advocate for yourself, that is where true empowerment happens.

My role will also involve supporting the other parent (or birth partner) as they may have their own concerns, anxieties, or uncertainties about the birthing process, especially if they are experiencing birth for the first time or have experienced previous birth trauma. By providing reassurance, education, and emotional support to partners, I help create a calmer and more cohesive environment for both of you.

Supporting partners can involve helping them understand the stages of labour, offering techniques to assist with comfort measures, guiding them in providing physical support such as massage, acupressure and addressing any questions or concerns they may have, all of which will also be covered when we do The Positive Birth Program together.

It’s important to recognize that birth is a team effort, and supporting the emotional well-being of both of you contributes to a more positive birth experience overall. By fostering a sense of trust, empowerment, and unity within the birth space, we can create an environment that supports the physiological and emotional process of birth.

If you do not have a partner or primary support person, then I can step into that role and be your primary support person too.
