“Enjoy finding a great doula match for YOU!”
~ Natalie Meade
Here is a current, list of active doulas in the Newcastle/Lake Mac and Hunter regions)(if you are a doula, please message me and I will add you in!).
LOCAL DOULA LIST:
(myself) – Centrally located to JHH, Belmont and Maitland, and I am happy to attend births as far as Gosford and Singleton.
My style of doula-ing and birth education is to educate the family in a very informative, eye opening and empowering way to allow the woman to discover that she has ALL she needs, within her amazing brain and body, to birth her baby powerfully and passionately!
Ph: 0406 934 645
