DOULA AND CHILDBIRTH EDUCATOR
The most incredible event in the life of a woman and a man is when this couple become a
family. Its an exciting time filled with emotion and sometimes fear.
As a doula it is my privilege and honour to work with families in waiting to educate,
support and nurture their journey.
