About / Bio
My name is Kellie Hermes- I am a 33 year old Doula in training and mother of four. I have spent 16 years in retail and hospitality working with a vast array of interesting people. I am excited to put that experience of service, combined with my newfound knowledge, to good use in the world of pregnancy, birth and parenting.

I had water births with all of my children. With lots of support, I found the experiences to be intense and profound yet calm and gentle. I would love to bring my innate knowledge of the empowering nature of labour and birth to other women, partners and families. I hope to be involved in and learn from all possibilities that arise from the birthing process.

I am interested in the roles that both natural and conventional medicine can play in pregnancy, labour and life and will support you to make conscious and informed decisions during this wonderful time of transformation. However and wherever you choose to birth, I will hold the space for you and your family to feel nurtured, calm and confident in your journey.
Testimonial
We will meet three to four times before the birth so that I can get to know you and your partner. All of my services listed below are available during these appointments for mental, spiritual, physical and emotional support. I also provide education on the physiology of labour, optimal foetal positioning, conscious conception, pregnancy and parenting and relaxation. We will work together to create a birth plan, talking about comfort measures and pain relief during labour. Then I will support you from the onset of established labour (or whenever you need my support) until a couple of hours after your baby is born. In the week after the birth I will visit 2 -3 times to check in on you and your family regarding emotional and physical wellbeing, feeding, settling, to facilitate relaxation through breathe and foot massage, debreif on the birth experience and answer any questions you may have. I am always available for a chat on the phone or by email. As I have recently begun my Doula journey you will find my services very affordable.

I have just begun spreading the word that I am available to take clients and will post testimonials as soon as I can!
