About / Bio
I am the mother to 5 beautiful children, and feel like I have been a mother forever . Originally a registered nurse, I am passionate about the work that I do. I am passionate about informing couples about their birth choices but ultimately I am there to guide and support them in THEIR choices. I love developing close relationships . I love watching and supporting the couple as they become a family. I believe that birth is a normal physiological process and that a woman's body knows exactly how to give birth if she is given time, gentle support and a team around her which creates a safe environment .
Hiring Linda as our Doula after the birth of our 2nd son was the best decision i have ever made. After having post natal depression in the past and with little family support i was worried about how i would cope being at home with my busy toddler and new baby. Linda has helped me in many ways from getting sleep to preparing meals and playing with Jack my 3 yr old. Linda is warm, knowledgable, supportive, practical and brings wonderful energy into our home. Highly recommended!!
My birth work has taken me to many different care settings including birth centres, private and public hospitals and also home births. I live in the N.E. suburbs but am happy to travel to meet couples, either at their homes or an agreed meeting place which is suitable for both of us. I have been privileged to work with families from different cultural, spiritual and religious backgrounds. I am experienced with both calm birth and hypno birthing techniques, supporting women through inductions, c- sections, water births, vbacs, and instrumental deliveries. I am also a
