“A child gives birth to a mother” - Vithal Venkatesh Kamat

The birth of your baby is a deeply profound and life changing experience. I work alongside you and your birth partner to support your unique needs leading up to the birth of your baby, during birth and beyond as required

My aim is to foster a nurturing and compassionate relationship with you and your family to enable me to provide practical and emotional support as you empower yourself in your transition to motherhood and as parent

My offering as a Doula is further complimented by my work as a Birthlight Yoga teacher, Holistic Massage therapist and KGHypnobirthing teacher. My support aims to come full circle and I offer you a Closing Ceremony usually booked at the end of the fourth trimester to close our time together. All of my offerings are complemented by a holistic approach and a myriad of skills from trainings, personal study and generously imparted knowledge from a sisterhood of wise women. Please see ‘About Me’ for a comprehensive list of my training
