Birth Doula Services
“Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceros, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.”

Home Birth Support
“Labor is a Journey. The preparation has often been elaborate, conscious and consuming. There is usually an all-important ritual of Arrangement preceding the actual event. We call it nesting and Mother has moved about in a final flurry of activity, taking care of all last details…clothes are washed, food fills the freezer, house is ship-shape…all is in order. Nesting is part of Embarkation. Mother senses that labor is soon. Perhaps contractions and the loss of a bit of the cervical mucus has offered a hint that the journey is about to commence.” – Whapio Diane Bartlett
“As soon as I met Jenna for that first tea and walk by the beach, we connected so well that I knew I wanted her support for our family birth. She was a calm and positive rock throughout the night and made both myself and partner feel cared for during our birthing. Then as soon as our baby was born, she switched modes, she made me an amazing cinnamon tea to drink right after the birth of my placenta, made both my partner a warm meal, cleaned the house and made sure we were comfortable in bed with our new love (She even labelled and put my placenta in the fridge) before she quietly left us to bond as a new family. It was perfect. Then she came a week later for our “Goodbye visit” with some of her AMAZING food!! She is a part of our family, I still send her pictures of C a year after the birth!” -Xx

“Many parents-to-be plan for a natural birth and discuss their pain relief options with their midwife, doula or obstetrician well ahead of the big day. Labour TENS or Obstetric TENS is a safe method of pain relief that is recommended by medical professionals as it provides Mums with a wonderful source of pain relief during their labour”
