How do you find a birth doula? The right doula? A doula who is supportive, well educated and sensitive to your needs? In Susan Ross’s book Birth Right there is a list of questions you should be asking your doula at the first meeting. Contact Susan on 0419 606 171 to discuss the right doula for you.
A Birth Right doula undergoes comprehensive training with Susan – who has been a midwife, doula, creator of Inside Birth® Antenatal education program, trainer, hypnotherapist, mother and published author with over 35 years experience in pregnancy, birth and early parenting.
I am very proud of our Birth Right doulas. Each one brings her unique understanding of birthing. Our doulas are part of our Birth Right mentoring team. We work together and I offer continuous support, education and updates to all our doulas.
Every birthing woman deserves a doula to ensure she has the birthing experience that she wants. I am passionate about making sure women UNDERSTAND their choices and feel empowered about their birthing.
I feel very lucky to have (a) had babies at all (definitely thought that was off the table for a while), (b) had a Birth Right doula for George and, and I must say especially, (c) had Alice at home. A doula, in my mind, is ESSENTIAL if you’re considering a hospital birth but, even better, have baby at home with a midwife and doula in attendance. If I were younger and richer, I’d have more children for sure and would look forward to, rather than dread the births! So frustrating that our society turns such joy and pleasure into fear and morbidity.
Finding you was certainly the turning point for us in the lead-up to the arrival of George. Must have had some good karma back there somewhere….Amy

My Doula work has opened up my own journey of personal development and wisdom. I now fully understand the essential need to serve, support and empower the birthing mother and her chosen team. This will bring a birth, no matter what the outcome where you will feel informed and nurtured, birthing with confidence and love, ready to embrace the beauty of becoming parents.
I am a mother of 2 awesome children and three birth journeys that have all lead to my empowered birth mamma self! As a girl growing up on a farm I witnessed many births, I knew at this young age, the innate birthing wisdom and how these animals will birth in the right environment. From that I gained a great understanding of how safe and normal this process can be when they are away from stress. This is my drive to be the best Doula for your birth!
I will provide my work in a holistic way to support you as the mother, your partner or chosen birth team. I can offer a vast bank of personal experience alongside work in nutritional, emotional and post-natal support. I am always engaging with various short courses to enhance my skill set in the birth and human health world.
Available with love far South Coast, Bega, Merimbula, Cooma, Moruya & surrounds.

The birth process is amazing! And I truly believe that every woman is capable of having an amazing birth experience, whatever that may be.
I’m a mother of four and a step mum to one. All boys, including a set of twins. I have experienced 3 different labours and 4 different births, all natural, beautiful and empowering. I know firsthand what it’s like to be pregnant. There is an abundance of information out there, and sometimes there just isn’t enough. It can be so daunting.
As your doula I can help you make sense of it all, bringing my experience and knowledge to help you decide what you want, to enhance your own beliefs in the birth process and more importantly trust in your own body’s ability to birth.
I can also provide assistance with nutritional requirements for preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Birth is an amazing physiological and spiritual event and it is a privilege to share this life-changing event with a woman and her family. My passion for mothering and babies has led me to the beginning of a baby’s life where a calm, protected and supported birth is a great start for mum and baby. Birthing is a powerful and intense experience but it is also a simple, natural process that our amazing body is made to do.
As your doula, I will respect your choices and give you unconditional emotional and physical support through your pregnancy and birth journey.
I love labour and birth, it is an exciting and fulfilling experience. Both my labours were incredible, beautiful, fun, different and deeply moved me.
Every woman deserves to be an active participant in her birth and feel supported to make it her story. To be supported and well informed throughout pregnancy and birth will enhance your experience of labour and transition into parenthood. This is a wonderful journey to embark on and as your doula I will support you and your partner, throughout and without judgement. You will have access to a range of information and choices, enabling you to feel empowered. I will use my knowledge and experience to assist women in achieving the best birth possible.
I am currently expanding my training to include breastfeeding support and would love to offer any help in this area, if needed.
Pregnancy and birth are the most wondrous and life changing experiences a woman will ever go through. It should be an exciting, positive and empowering experience for all who enter this journey. I am passionate about pregnancy and birth and love to support others to feel confident and joyous on such a memorable occasion.
As your doula, I will work to build a positive and trusting relationship so I can fully understand your hopes and wishes for your birth. I will assist you to find information and help you to make informed decisions that suit you as a family and help you feel powerful in your choices. Having a doula protecting your space during the birth and helping to create a calm and relaxing environment allows you to focus solely on experiencing your moment of birthing. I truly believe that every woman deserves a doula to help her and her partner create their own wonderful birth story.
I am passionate about supporting birthing women and their families in becoming empowered through pregnancy, labour and birth. At a time where it can be difficult to find antenatal and birth care that is personalised and continual, I would be an important asset to your birth support team. My role is to create a safe and sacred space for a woman to embark on her birth journey, ensuring she is respected and heard. My hope is that my touch, energy and presence will support a woman’s own strength, and to trust in her body, her baby and her instinctual ability to birth.
“Attending births is like growing roses. You have to marvel at the ones that just open up and bloom at the first kiss of the sun, but you wouldn’t dream of pulling open the petals of the tightly closed buds and forcing them to blossom on your time line.” – Gloria Lemay
I am also a passionate babywearer and am expanding my birthing knowledge with the InsideBirth® childbirth educator training and AcuBirth acupressure courses.
I believe that no matter how your baby is born, their birth can and should be a special and joyful experience.
I have three amazing children, and it was their very different births that inspired me to first become an antenatal teacher, and then a doula.
As your doula I want to help you achieve the kind of birth you deserve – one where you feel calm, safe and in control. My aim is for you both to feel protected, supported, respected, strong, and above all else, empowered. I will be your advocate.
I would be honoured to support you through your most precious and unique birth.
Hi everyone, my name is Catriona and I’m a yoga teacher specialising in prenatal, a doula and mother of two gorgeous girls. I’m fascinated about birth and have a natural enthusiasm for helping women. I feel very strongly that empowering mothers and fathers with knowledge, support and love has a long and lasting effect on not only their birth experience but the life of their child and the newly created family. I engaged a doula for both my pregnancies. I had some complications towards the end of my first pregnancy and having my doula to speak with made a huge difference. I had a doula for my 2nd baby at home. I will never forget how it felt when she held my hand and reassured me in her calming voice. It was like an angel had walked into the room. I instantly felt safe, empowered, supported and cared for. I would love to pass this experience on to you.
I have over 30 years experience working in child and family health. I trained as a midwife in the early 1990’s, which fuelled a passionate interest in pregnancy and birth. I have birthed 2 gorgeous sons. There is no more important connection than between a parent and child, and this begins in the womb. I believe that enhancing this relationship in pregnancy and during childbirth gives a baby the best possible start in life. I strongly believe in the right of women to have choices in childbirth and that every birth can be a joyful and life enhancing experience.
As a Birth Right doula and Inside Birth Educator® I can help a woman trust her body and its natural ability to birth her baby. I will support a woman’s choices and advocate on her behalf. I will support her and her partner emotionally and physically. I will protect her privacy. I will help her and her partner create an environment to welcome their child into the world.
There is no greater honour than being a woman ‘being with’ another woman during childbirth.

Pregnancy and childbirth are precious and sacred human experiences, for the mother, her partner and their tribe of supporters. Having birthed 3 children, I know that each birth is a unique experience, where holding your baby in your arms heralds the start of an incredible life-long journey.
Your birthing experience will stay with you. That’s why I’m passionate about empowering women to trust their bodies and connect with their intuition to create a beautiful birthing experience and a positive start to parenthood.
As a born nurturer, I love all aspects of birth and babies, and wholeheartedly offer both birth and post-natal support. It would be my privilege and honour to be present in your birth space and provide practical and emotional support to you and your partner as you embark on this amazing season.
I live on the central coast and cover Upper Nth. Shore, Sydney – Lake Macquarie for doula service.
