About / Bio
Hi I'm Jess and I am a doula living in Townsville, QLD. I was inspired to begin my training following the birth of my second daughter earlier this year. I have seen firsthand the difference good support and care can make and would love to help other women have a birth experience as positive as mine was.

Testimonials coming soon!
I will meet with you and your partner 2-3 times during pregnancy to get to know you and your goals for your birth. I will provide assistance in writing your birth plan. I will then support you in labour at your place of birth and at your home before transferring if you feel you need me. I will stay approx 1 hour following your birth. I am also happy to stay longer to assist with showering etc if you prefer.
I have a fairly small but slowly growing library of books for clients to borrow. If there is something specific you are searching for that will be beneficial I will probably be happy to order it in for you. I am a member of the Australian Breastfeeding Association and a trainee Breastfeeding Counsellor. I am more than happy to research any particular options you would like for your birth that I am not already familiar with. I am also happy to take family photographs with your new baby.
