PREGNANCY

Congratulations on your pregnancy and choosing to have a doula to care for you throughout this wondrous journey.  I would love to meet you, and your partner, to hear your dreams and wishes for your pregnancy and birth.

BIRTH

The day has finally arrived, you're in labour, how exciting!! All the meetings, chats and time together preparing for today has led us to this day feeling ready, prepared for whatever the day brings as we've discussed all the options in your "birth wish list", excited and calm.  Let's meet your beautiful baby

POSTNATAL

Your precious bundle is here.  Your amazing journey as a mum, and as parents, has begun.  I will care for and support you as you and your little one get to know each other. This is a very special time and it’s always a joy to help, support and teach you, as new parents, the tips and skills needed to care for your beautiful new bub, and to see your confidence grow day by day. You have a beautiful journey into parenthood ahead, and it’s a huge privilege to be part of such a beautiful transition in a couple’s lives.

FERTILITY

During my many years working as a nurse at the IVF clinic in Auckland, I cared for and supported hundreds of couples during their infertility journey. I recognise how tumultuous this time can be for hopeful couples, as they embark on a myriad of tests, examinations and meetings, and experience the highs and lows of receiving results of treatments or tests. I would love to hear from you, and to meet you to hear your story and where you are in your journey to becoming parents.
