Birth and Post Natal Doula
Every woman’s experience is unique and not every journey is ‘perfect’ but a positive birth is beyond price.
Hi, My name is Erika, wife, mum and positive birth advocate providing doula services and that’s me in the picture!
Birth to me is not just about having a baby, it’s about the journey. About inner strength and the power, a woman can find in those final moments, becoming ‘untouchable’ as she births. The confidence she discovers in her body and in its ability to birth will stay with her forever. With a Doula, you too can be supported to have a greater chance to achieve the birth you wish for.
I listen, hear your needs and together we can explore and create the birth space you would like to create.
When I think of birth I feel ….energised ….inspired ….in awe ….full of expectation ….and confident in the mother’s ability.
I hope that you too will feel the same way when it is time for you to birth positively.
My experiences as a Doula have allowed me to be confident in supporting but not limited to;
Gestational Diabetes in pregnancy and at birth
Dealing with Rhesus Negative blood group
Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU)
Labouring at home
Births at many hospitals and including water births both at home and hospital
Use of gas & air, Pethidine, Epidurals and C-Sections
