Doula Type: Birth, Postnatal
Mobile: 0414 954 732
Hello, my name is Emma but you can call me Em. I have four amazing little boys: Xavier, Angus, Hudson and Cooper. All very different birth experiences so I know just how hard you have to focus at one of the most amazing, empowering, emotional, and vulnerable time in your life. I have been a Doula for 9 years now. I never stop marveling at how amazing a well-supported informed woman can trust and birth.
I would be honoured to share that with you and help you understand the changes that happen to you, your baby and your body. Ever since I can remember I have been interested in pregnancy, labour, the birth process, breastfeeding, “women’s business”, and anything else that involves a woman making her transition into motherhood.
In today’s society so much of birth has been medically charged which in my personal view shouldn’t be. Birthing your baby is the most natural thing you can do and women have been disempowered.
What I will help you do is trust your extremely capable body; find that awareness and knowledge that is in your DNA; build that confidence in which you and your partner can make the decisions that feel right for your baby’s entrance into the world. In doing so we will talk about your birth plan and discuss all your options and what it is you want before, during and after the birth of your baby.
There is so much we can do to make your birth as empowering as it should be. In saying this, I will strive to support you and you partner/family. I believe that dad/partner should have just as big a role in the birth of their baby. Something I am also very passionate about is making sure that the men in our lives aren’t forgotten about. I like to inform them as much as I possibly can about things that will happen as I know it can be very daunting. I will try to help make them feel a lot more relaxed as this should be just amazing for them as it is for you.
My role as a Birth Doula is that of a professional non-medical birth companion. I provide continuity of care during pregnancy and the birth process, Informed Choice birth planning, reassurance and encouragement, breathing and relaxation techniques, massage, help with labour and birth positioning and so very much more. My aim is to be the best support to you and your family on this journey.
'The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.'
I would love to meet with you so send me an email or feel free to call.
