What I am 'do-ulaing' right now

People often ask, "What does a doula do?" So here are just some of the things I am currently doing in my role as a doula.

Updated April 2024

Doula (doo-lah) noun

"A doula is a trained companion who is not a healthcare professional and who emotionally, practically and informatively supports another person through a significant health-related experience, such as pregnancy, childbirth, early parenting, miscarriage, induced abortion or stillbirth, or non-reproductive experiences such as dying."

Here are some of the amazing clients I am currently working with...

Supporting People

Being present at birth is such a privilege and this month I was reminded just how much so by being able to witness an empowered mama bring her baby here in the way that she wanted. After a traumatic first birth experience that lead to an emergency c-section, this mama knew that she wanted a birth that was different. She wanted a birth that made her feel like she was in control and one that would allow her to enter her postpartum period feeling able and ready to thrive. Working and walking alongside her as she navigated (and often battled) with the maternity care system to be heard and supported in her choices, together we did the work that allowed her to feel as prepared as she could for the VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section) she desired. Despite all of the work she did, even during her labour she still had fear that her body could not birth her baby physiologically. Holding her in this space and reminding her of all that she had done to reach this point was a blessing I could offer her as she gained strength and belief with each surge and wave that took over her body. It was so magical to then see her advocate for herself and her birth and bring her baby into this world in the way she wanted. Easing into the postpartum fully present in her body, with her baby and overjoyed by the birth experiences she had.

I am not just a doula...

My photographic storytelling

Photography has always been a passion for me and something I developed during my time at university studying fashion. To now be able to use this skill and creativity in my doula work is the perfect balance of service and creative output. And now I am increasing my capacity to do more of this work outside of the birth space.

Focusing on the whole journey, my photography services have always included pregnancy photography and postpartum photography as well as photography during birth.

Now I will be offering personal photography sessions. These sessions are for women at any point on their journey through life. Whether they have had children or not, these sessions are about embracing who they are right now. There is something so powerful about images of ourselves that reflect us in our most real unfiltered form and I want to offer the same opportunity of being empowered to women outside of the motherhood journey. If this sounds like something that you would be interested in, check out the new photography packages on my website.

Working to make positive change in the pregnancy, birth and early parenting world.
