Birth and Postnatal Doula Completed training: 2016 Other modalities: Hawaiian Shamanic Body work, Red Tent facilitator and Transpersonal Art Therapy. I chose to become a doula because birth has always enchained and fascinated me. I picked up a copy of Spiritual Midwifery in my early 20's and it opened me up to a whole new perspective on motherhood, birth and female power. It took me another 8 - 10 years to follow the call, and realise that not only could I do this work and help women regain their power in this exquisitely transformational area of life, but I could also advocate for positive changes within the current medical system and lovingly support the women who utilise it. I believe in a woman's ability to birth her baby naturally, but also believe that no matter how a woman chooses to birth her baby, she should be fully supported.
