About / Bio
I am a Mum to 3 boys, Doula and Registered Midwife. I have personally experienced 3 very different births from traumatic right through to ecstatic. The birth of your baby is one of the most amazing and empowering moments of our lives. Pregnancy and Birth is also a very confusing time, with so many choices. My philosphy is centered around ensuring each and every birthing woman has enough information and support to make informed decisions about HER care. This is my driving motivation to be with birthing women, to make sure that every woman is respected, heard and supported in her choices. I am amazed everytime I have the honour of being present to witness a new life into the world. Prior to becoming a Doula I was a Assistant Private Bank & Business Banking Manager. I work All over South East Melbourne, from Brighton, Caulfield, Malvern over to Mitcham, Waverley, Berwick, Narre Warren and down the Mornington Peninsula.
Testimonial
Tina & Frank ,May 07 Relle was an amazing support for not only me but my husband during the birth of our son. She showed great compassion and was a huge emotional support. She encouraged different ways to minimise the pain. I would highly recommend Relle to others wanting birth support. Noe` & Michael, Sept 07 You were amazing, strong and supportive. You were there for me - before, during and after the birth. The support you provided us with was priceless. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are an amazing and compassionate woman who has been born to support women in labour. Beth Jan, 07 Relle, you were a fantastic investment!The ante natal visits were casual and allowed us time to work on areas that were important to us. I am so grateful to have had you through our birthing journey - it was more than comforting to have my own birthing expert - and one that was totally supportive of my hopes and aims. Mark, Jan, 2007 Relle, it was so reassuring to have you as our Doula and as it turns out, friend. It would be scary to go into a birth/labour without the trusted help and dependable presence. You were both those things for me.
