Birth and Postnatal Doula Completed training: 2017 I have been passionate about birth since the birth of my first child in 1981. I have ha 9 children and each was different, empowering and beautiful. I believe that childbirth is a life changing and never forgotten time in a woman life. After my own experiences with birth and mothering, I feel that supporting women and their partners during this time is very much a natural progression for me. I am excited to be able to encourage and help women during this momentous experience in their lives. I consider it a privilege ad honour to be a doula. I think that being asked by a client to support her during a time that is to be cherished and protected and that is so personal and life changing is the most rewarding part of my role. I would describe myself as compassionate, hard working, gentle, initiative, a listener, wiling to learn, supportive, passionate about supporting and empowering women through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
