Adding another baby to your family can be filled with anticipation and joy!
And for those considering a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) in Brisbane or Gold Coast, having a doula by your side can transform the experience.
I’m here to offer warm and friendly support, tailored to your unique needs, whether you choose a hospital or homebirth to help you ROCK your VBAC!
VBAC Expertise and Personalised Support
As a doula based in Brisbane and Gold Coast, specialising in VBAC, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to support mothers seeking a vaginal birth after a previous cesarean section.
I understand the intricacies and concerns surrounding VBAC, and I am dedicated to guiding you with empathy, care, and a focus on your personal preferences.
I have been in the VBAC space for 7+ years now. I’ve had two c-sections and had a VBA2C at home. I’ve walked the path you are about to walk, and I understand how it feels.
As host of The VBAC Homebirth Stories Podcast and working with VBAC mums, I have learned that often it’s a challenging path to navigate.
I’m here with you every step of the way to help bring more ease and build your self-confidence and birth knowledge.
Mindset Shift and Empowerment
Addressing fears and nurturing self-belief are crucial aspects of preparing for a VBAC.
Through discussing your previous birth experience and unpacking it, we will unblock any hidden or lingering fears.
Together, we will work on shifting your mindset, building confidence, and embracing the power within you.
VBAC-Specific Birth Education and Planning
Knowledge is key to making informed decisions.
In our 2-3 antenatal sessions before the birth, we will delve into VBAC-specific education, equipping you with the tools and resources to navigate the process more confidently.
We collaboratively create a personalised birth plan, ensuring your wishes are respected, whether you’re at a hospital in Brisbane or Gold Coast or the comfort of your own home.
Continuous Support, Every Step of the Way
From support as soon as you secure your date with me, to in-person attendance during your VBAC, I provide unwavering assistance.
Through ongoing communication via text and messenger, I remain a reliable source for questions, concerns, or just to offer a friendly chat.
My commitment is to be there for you, ensuring you feel supported and empowered throughout the entire journey.
I understand how fears can pop up almost out of nowhere and take over your thoughts.
You will always have someone to bounce these off of, so you are never stuck in that fear.
Giving you the ability to tap back into positive and calm feelings towards your birth – creating a sense of peace.
Postpartum Planning and Holistic Support
The journey doesn’t end with birth; postpartum planning is a crucial aspect of my doula services.
Together, we navigate the post-birth phase, ensuring a smooth transition into this new chapter of your life.
As a trained postpartum professional I have been supporting mothers to create more peaceful and supported postpartum for over 7 years.
You may have heard the saying “It takes a village to raise a baby”, I believe it takes a village to support a mother.
