Why Birth Experiences?
Giving birth is one of the most transformative times in your life. It is a life changing experience. Women have always know to gather support and care around them self. This knowledge was passed from mother to daughter. It was the way it was. In these changing times you might not have family or feel it is right to invite them for this time. The Doula has always been here, she is as old as time. Planning to gather around you with loving hands and nurturing care. To hold and support your new family so that you can really drink in this precious and challenging time as a Newborn Muma.
My beautiful tailored birth experiences are created in a way to give you and your partner all the loving care and guidance for your journey. They range from me holding space for you as just a Birth Only Doula all the way through to the offering of being your Wonderlust Doula who can travel to you, stay and support you though out this new transition and care in any way you need. As your doula I bring my passion and knowledge of many years of caring for birthing and new mamas. It is something I am, not what I do.
