About / Bio
My name is Briony and I am an experienced birth and postpartum doula covering the Wollongong Region. I am also a nutritionist, yoga teacher, massage therapist, placenta encapsulator and birth and new motherhood photographer.

I have 3 children of my own and was fortunate enough to have had the support of an amazing doula, who I believe made a great difference to my birthing and new motherhood experiences.

Being very passionate about all things pregnancy and birth, I am excited about this wonderful opportunity to support both yourself and your partner to feel reassured, confident and at ease during your pregnancy and into new motherhood.
Testimonial
"Briony was born to do this work! Her kind and gentle nature and support during my transition to motherhood made my experience the best it could be. I highly recommend the New Mama's Package, with weekly home visits, massages, nourishing food and reassuring chats. She also helped my partner and I plan our postpartum period, giving us the knowledge and confidence to create a calm and loving environment to bring bub home to.
Special mention also goes to the newborn photography session Briony did in hospital, we will cherish the photos forever." - Rachael, Mum to Eloise

"Your warming support has been a valuable asset in all aspects of my motherhood journey. I have enjoyed pregnancy yoga, birthing classes, massages and now mums and bubs yoga. I thank you for getting me this far, your holistic care has allowed me to learn, grow and be confident in my new role. Briony you are a god send and I hope many other Mother and Fathers-to-be are able to share the same experience in a personalised and safe environment." - Mel, Mum to Molly

"We still can't thank you enough for being there with us and experiencing such an awesome moment in our lifes. You were such a great help and we will treasure that moment forever. We will definitely recommend you to friends & family in the future. Thanks for your help!" R&C, Woronora NSW
