My belief around birth has always been that “when a baby is born, a whole family is born” it is for this reason I feel that the birthing space is an extremely sacred space and I am always very honoured to be allowed to hold that space for the family. My role is not there to take away from anybody but rather to empower those around me to be involved and part of the process as much as they are comfortable with. I believe that any mom has the strength within herself to birth her beautiful baby in whichever way she chooses and I am there to help her find that strength within that has been waiting to be awakened all along.

I offer my doula services in Pretoria.
My role is to support parents in their journey towards parenthood.
As a birth doula I believe in the power of being informed and educated throughout a pregnancy.
I believe women can and deserve to have an empowering and fulfilling birth experience, no matter what they choose.
Being part of the birth team during this time in a couple’s lives is a gift and a privilege.

My passion for Pregnancy, Birth, Post-Partum Care and Breastfeeding evolved after the birth of my 3 sons, and the differences in each of their births, as well as the supportive care I received from my midwives and doula during my pregnancies and births.
Taking care of many infants over a period of 20 years, I have listened to many new parent’s experiences and the difference, continued support can make. The magnificent benefits for supportive births and care are evident in my direct experience with the parents I have worked with over the years. It is with great pleasure that I would love to support new families during these most exciting but also most vulnerable changes.
Based in Melville, Johannesburg
At quite a late stage in my pregnancy my husband and I made the decision to move from a gynae to a midwife, I had never heard of a doula before this, but knew I wanted a mother and baby led birth, in an environment that was not fear driven. My midwife suggested a doula, we went with her guidance, and were so grateful we did. My birth experience was incredible, I felt supported and empowered. I joke now and say I would have a baby everyday just to feel that way over and over again…
My experience led me to want to be there to support other women through their pregnancy journeys and hold space for them as they birth their babies and themselves as they birth into the role of mother. I experienced first hand how important the right doula support during pregnancy, birth and postnatally is and so studied to become a doula…I would love to be there to support you in creating a safe, supported and empowered birth experience.

As a doula I support and guide women and their partners through pregnancy, birth and beyond in the greater Johnnesburg area.
I am a mother of two amazing boys, and partner to my best friend. I love supporting couples in their choices and seeing the wonder and awe of parents as they hold their newborn in their arms for the very first time.
My doula career and training started in 2008. I keep current by attending births at various hospitals and homes, attending courses and interacting with care providers, as well as listening to my most willing teachers – my clients and their babies.
