Doula Matters"How You Birth Really Matters"
“Giving birth should be your greatest achievement!….NOT your greatest fear.
Doulas make a difference”.
Hi, my name’s Kelly Bardon and I’m a doula here in the Northern Suburbs of Perth. My role as a doula is to support women and their partners throughout their pregnancy, labour, birth and the post-partum period.
I originally did my training through Australian Doulas in 2016 and am currently a registered member of the national doula association Doula Network Australia Inc.
I also support student doulas as a mentor with the Doula Training Academy in Perth, Western Australia.
I’m currently completing my birth education training course through Childbirth International (CBI).
I’ve been married to my husband David for 38 years and 37 years ago I gave birth to the first of my 6 children. That’s when I fell in love with all things pregnancy, birth, women, babies and breastfeeding (I’ve bottle fed as well).
Fast forward to today and adding 15 grandchildren to the family, nothing changed. I’m still just as mad about pregnancy, birth, and babies as I was back then.
Why Should You Hire A Doula?
Because being pregnant and giving birth can be a huge whirlwind, both physically and emotionally, and as a doula I can help you through this experience to ensure you have an amazing, positive birth experience.

What Can I Do For You?
Provide childbirth education – so that you and your partner will know what to expect during pregnancy and birth, giving you confidence and peace of mind.
Build a relationship with you and your partner – So that you can feel free to ask questions, express fears or concerns during the pregnancy and in labour.
Help increase oxytocin levels and reduce stress levels – through relaxation, breathing and massage plus, helping you find the positions that are most comfortable for you to labour in.
Provide information regarding medical aspects and procedures – While I do not provide medical care, I do have knowledge in medical aspects, and can help you gain a better understanding of procedures and possible complications that can sometimes present in pregnancy and birth.
Stay with you after the birth – this way I can provide breastfeeding assistance and ensure you and your newborn family are comfortable
Certified in Pregnancy Massage – regular massages can make you feel relaxed as well as relieve pain and tension from any pregnancy discomforts.
So! If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, experienced, mature, down-to-earth person. Someone that you can talk too easily, then I know we can work together.
"Gave me closure on my last birth"
”Thank you so much for yesterday and support throughout the whole pregnancy. You helped me achieve a much more positive birth and also gave me closure on my last! I can’t thank you enough!
