Birth Doula Services
Hi there !
I am a certified Mama Bamba doula and I am a non-medical professional who provides information, guidance, physical comfort and emotional support throughout your pregnancy, labor and birth as well as postpartum.
Being a doula is a calling and I am beyond grateful for every sacred space I can be present at. A birthing experience is truly amazing. A time when a woman’s body is allowed to become a vessel for forces infinitely greater than herself.When a mother has given birth she should be celebrated like the goddess she is.
My Birth Philosophy
Birth is a truly miraculous event and as a doula I bear witness to a variety of different and unique births. Our bodies are made for this beautiful natural process and this is truly a privilege to be a part of. I can help you, listen to you and give you a safe empowering space while supporting you through pregnancy, birth and beyond. My desire as your doula is to support you in such a way that allows you to have an empowering and positive birth experience. Allow me to bring calmness and peacefulness to your sacred birth space.
Our journey begins when we get together for a cup of coffee. This is were we chat and get to know each other, to see if we are a good fit. This is an obligation free consultation which means if we don’t connect, there is no worries ! Hiring a doula is a big decision and I encourage you to hire someone you connect with.
If you decide to book me as your doula I am available to you on whatsapp for any questions or concerns and I will also be on call 24/7 from 38 weeks.
My services include 2x prenatal visits at either your home or mine. This is when we will discuss your questions and concerns as well as any information you may need. A birth plan and postpartum plan also included. If you feel that you would like to schedule extra prenatal visits , it can be arranged at R250 per visit.
I provide continuous emotional support, comfort measures and so much more. I also stay up to 2 hours after birth or until you feel comfortable. We will discuss the labor process and my role during labor in our prenatal visits.
I provide you with immediate breastfeeding support as well as postpartum.
I provide one postpartum visit at home to check in with the new parents and just talk about their birth experience. I provide solutions to problems and can provide the relevant resources and care providers if/when necessary.Extra postpartum visits can be arranged at R250 per visit.

- Preform any clinical tasks. I only provide comfort, emotional and informational support.

- I do not speak to staff on your behalf.
- Project my own beliefs onto you
