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.

”There is no such thing as a perfect birth, but a present one comes close enough” – The Unelaborated Momma
Hi there, I’m a wife, homeschooling mom, birth doula and photographer. My heart is to equip, empower and support the ideal birth that you want to have, whether that be a home-birth, hospital birth, cesarean or VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). After having two beautiful home-births myself, I truly understand the impact proper support and informed decisions has on a birthing couple.
I provide the following support:
- Prenatal Appointments with a PowerPoint presentation on understanding all the necessary information on labor and delivery.
- Postpartum Appointments with a PowerPoint presentation on the first 6 weeks after birth and all necessary information.
- Breastfeeding Support until weaning
- In-House stay in Postpartum Support
- Additional Photography & Early Infant Montessori (0-18months) introduction

My Insight to Birthing is Sacred and Enchanting, because I also have gone through two wonderful natural births with my two boys. I believe with Compassion and Trust we can ensure together, that we do our best to reach your ultimate birthing desire.
My input and presence is here to create and hold your birth space sacred and still without fear, tension or any anxiety. I also believe that your partner” if present” plays a crucial role. I empower that because that can deepen and strengthen your relationship during this transformational time, in becoming parents entering a new dynamic family.
I love being involved in your unique special journey during your pregnancy, in order to give you all the information and support you might need. Being your shoulder and support and give you my special skills, experience and hands on training. Birth preparation and readiness to get rid of all worries or any uncertainty or fear, or trauma. To be completely ready and present for your ultimate transformation, at your sacred time of birth..
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.
Centurion Doula – Pretoria
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.
Hello, I am Sam. I’m 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.
