About / Bio
I am a student birth and postnatal doula. My work as a birth-keeper has been a long time coming but it’s taken some good-old life lessons to shape me into a doula who can truly serve families at the level that they – you – deserve. I consider it an absolute privilege to support families through pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period and I am constantly working on myself so that I can be an abundant resource for my wonderful clients.

I am available across Sydney for homebirths, birth centre and hospital births in areas such as the Eastern Suburbs, Inner West, Kogarah, Hurstville, Southerland, Bankstown, Liverpool, MacArthur and Campbelltown.

I have just one more birth to attend as a student doula – could that be you?

Contact me to arrange a complimentary meeting (I’ll come to you).

P.S. Congratulations on the coming of your precious little-one! May you have all the support you desire.
