How do you find a birth doula? The right doula? A doula who is supportive, well educated and sensitive to your needs? In both my books, ‘Birth Right’ and ‘Doulas’ there is a list of questions you should be asking your doula at the first meeting.
A Birth Right doula has comprehensive training and is mentored by me. I have 40+yrs experience in pregnancy & birthing, with a background in midwifery, doula trainer, creator of Inside Birth® Antenatal education program, published author, Hypnotherapist, NLP Coach, Time Line® Therapist.
Please give me a ring on 0419 606 171 with any questions or to organise a trainee doula for your birth.
Qualified doulas contacts are listed below by their state or territory.
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
