About / Bio
I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls who are my inspiration and joy! Their calm and positive births are what has encouraged me to train with Childbirth International to become a Doula and Birth Preparation teacher, with future anticipation of full lactation support. It is my hope to see every mother and expecting family to remember their babies births with no regrets and positive memories of achieving the birth they dreamed of - however they may choose. I am passionate about birthing mothers. their partner and their sweet anticipated arrivals. Most of all I am passionate about seeing women fulfill their desires to have a birth experience that leaves them feeling empowered and liberated as mothers and as a woman. My goal for each family is to custom design a care plan that focuses on relieving as fears or concerns that a mother and her partner may have. We will work together to educate on choices and options that suit the type of birth you want to achieve in a safe and healthy way for both mother and baby. It will never be my intention to interfere with your birth in a negative manner. This is your birth, My role is to support you, your partner and your choices. I look forward to sharing your precious arrival and journey with you.
After having quite a clinical and traumatic emergency C-section for my first birth, I wanted to take a different path for my second. So, I started to research and look at different methods. Shaya was such a huge help in so many ways. Helping me come to terms and grieve my first birth experience whilst opening my mind and calming and preparing me for my next birth, which was a drug free successful VBAC. And continued to follow up and check in with me post partum which was very comforting. Would highly recommend Shaya! -Michelle B, Gold Coast
