doula newcastle

Prior to birth we will do Hypnobirthing together and work in your home too (all part of your package). During birth, I am your steady rock that completely believes in you, I am calm in the space as I completely believe in birth (I “free-birthed” my last baby and have experienced, first hand, how powerful instinct is). 

During your birth you can look forward to being supported to be intuitive and allow your body to do it’s special work.
