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 40yrs 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 1717 with any questions or to organise a trainee doula for your birth.
Qualified doulas contacts are listed below.
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

Through my own journey of Birth and Motherhood, an even deeper connection to women and their own paths has grown within me. The sacred experience of Birth is a transformational, nurturing and empowering time for women, their partners and who they choose as their birth team, and having the right support is an invaluable part of it.
As your Doula I will empower you to make the right informed choices, to be your advocate and to support you through your whole experience from pregnancy, birth and postnatal. I am a qualified Inside Birth® Childbirth Educator.
I will help you understand your rights and ﬁnd the information you need to choose what you believe is best for you and your baby, to trust in your body and your ability to birth and to hold your space so you can have the vision of your birth come true.
It is an honour and a privilege to be a part of your birthing journey, and creating a Tribe that surrounds you in love, acknowledgement, truth and wisdom is my passion for every woman. This Self discovery of who you are and who you will become is a beautiful awakening of the soul, it is your Rite of Passage from woman to Mother, and it is a time you will remember every day of your life.
Our pregnancies are times of gestating not only our babies, but also ourselves.

Qualified Birth Doula
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.

Qualified Birth Doula
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.

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.
