Pregnancy, birth and the fourth trimester…..Sounds overwhelming huh?
I’m sure your mind is spilling with information and you feel like you don’t know where to start or who to trust. You feel lost, a little lonely and maybe even a tiny bit scared (or even a lot scared. No judgement because it’s a minefield out there).
That’s where I come in.
Hi. I’m Emma;
Wife, mother, doula in training and ocean fanatic. I grew up in Lennox Head and now reside on the Gold Coast, I enjoy cheese and wine, and I swear far too much.
My calling towards becoming a doula started well before I become a mother myself. You see, I’ve always been that woman that curates a baby shower gift with helpful resources for the mother, because a mother is also born when a baby enters this world. I’ve always filled friends freezers with easy to manage meals for post birth and I visit my sisterhood postnatally, not because I want to cuddle their baby and smell their head (although there is nothing quite like the smell of a newborn) but, because I want to support the new mother.
Since then I’ve become a mother myself. I filled those 40 weeks of pregnancy with as much research as I could get my hands on. My appetite for stories, experiences, research and knowledge was, and still is, insatiable. And I’ve been part of the support networks for many birthing women around me.
Once I entered motherhood myself I realised just how important birth work is. This season in a woman’s life is transformative. It’s messy, scary, beautiful, empowering and awe inspiring.
So why me? I want to support you. I want to help you navigate pregnancy, prepare for your birth and support you as you enter your own motherhood journey. I want to provide you with a non-judgemental support system that empowers you to travel through this season of life the way in which you chose to.
Does this resonate with you? If so, I’d love to sit down with a cuppa and chat about how I can help guide you through the birth of your dreams, or nurture you while you nurture your new baby. Get in touch below:
