EXPERIENCE AND SERVICE
During my work as a Perth doula I have supported women in both the public and private hospitals, including the family Birth Centre. Every birth has been unique and I've helped women from low-risk pregnancies to what are now considered high-risk such as twins, gestational diabetes, vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC), Advance Maternal Age mothers (I hate that term ), inductions and caesareans.
Keeping up to date with current research and training is how I benefit you.
· Provide ongoing birth education, taking the mystery and fear out of birth.
· 1 - 2 prenatal visits so that we can explore your birth preferences, labour positions, how partners can help, answering questions, etc.
· Unlimited phone, email, Messenger and text support.
· Help you write your birth preferences.
· Accompany you to antenatal/scan appointment if you feel the need warrants.
· 24/7 on call period from 38 weeks, until you birth.
