Holistic Doula Training

Thanks for your interest in the “Holistic Doula Training”. I am very excited to be offering this training for both birth and postpartum periods.

Run in North Lakes 3 times a year, this training will run over either 3 weekends or an intensive 4-day weekend. There is a workbook that will be sent out 1 month prior to the start of the course with about 15 hours of work to complete.  Following the course there are 4 supervised births required.

I am available for phone and email support leading up to and after these births and there is a written report due after each of them with some reflections

About Myself

I am a mum to 4 rambunctious kids – Anneke (13), Rico (12), Macey (7) and Harper (4).

I am a Homeopath, kinesiologist, Doula and Lactation Consultant. I worked many years in partnership with a midwife in New Zealand where we specialised in “high risk” at home. We also birthed in the hospital and birthing centres. Since being in Australia since 2014 I have attended many births in many settings including many “free births”, hospital, birth centres and home.

My passion really lies with supporting women to have the most meaningful empowering birth they can. To feel supported on all levels through the pregnancy, birth and early postnatal period.
