About / Bio
Hi I am Kellie, a passionate, committed, qualified and experienced Doula and Counsellor with over 4 years experience and attendance at 50+ births. I work together with you in designing a package that best nurtures and supports your needs throughout pregnancy, birth and the early parenting period. Optimal birth outcomes, a smooth transition to parenthood and healthy wellbeing are important to me and the women I support. I welcome your call to explore your desires for birth, Doula support and any other questions you may have. Please feel free to visit my website for more information.

Student Doulas:
I also offer Doula training and have a beautiful group of student Doulas available to support you as part of the Pickles and Ice Cream Student Doula Mentor Program. Please feel free to visit my website and be nourished by what you find.

More........
My personal philosophy as a Doula is one of holding the space for women to feel empowered and supported wholeheartedly throughout their experience of pregnancy, birth and early parenting. I provide personal attention, respect for your choices – along with a little laughter – to create the optimal birthing environment. I work hand-in-hand with midwives, doctors and other health-care professionals when care is needed that is outside of my role as a Doula. Sometimes circumstances arise when you least expect it. You can be assured I will remain available to support you throughout these times.

Initial appointment is FREE.
Testimonial
"The birth of our first child was amazing, but this time we wanted to see if we could get through labour with less medical intervention. Kellie's support and encouragement throughout the journey helped us achieve this. Kellie embraced us with her whole heart. She was professional, caring, respectful and true to our wishes. Visits from Kellie during the pregnancy allowed us time to discuss openly our fears and hopes around the birth and made us feel comfortable with her gentle manner.

Knowing that I had my husband and Kellie advocating for me in a hospital environment meant I could focus all my energy on birthing my baby. I felt very safe and supported, and this gave me a deeper sense of strength and positivity during Nate's birth.

The postnatal support Kellie provided was amazing. Her visits ensured the wellbeing of our entire family and nurtured us into the next stage of our life".
