Currently, not taking any Birth Doula clients as I focus on my Counselling Practice. I am available for Birth and Postpartum healing Ceremonies & pregnancy therapy (details below). If you feel you may need or curiosity about additional support, please contact me early to ensure I have availability when needed.
A blessing away is a circle of loving women who gather together in a beautiful and unique way to honour, nurture, and support the process of transformation from maiden to mother.
This ceremony helps the mother to prepare herself for the birth, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. She feels 'held' and supported by those she loves and respects.
This may include her mother, sisters, aunts, daughters, best friends.

Mexican Traditional Care
A traditional mix of herbs and alcohol made by a Partera in Mexico, is gently applied into your abdominal area helping to the recovery of skin elasticity and to bring all the organs in place before pregnancy. After a deep massage, the tummy is bandaged to keep the firmness, better posture, and get back and core strength.
Followed by a whole-body massage with herbs infusion oils to promote healing, release soreness, water retention, detoxification and supports the uterus after birth.
Typically done the first week postpartum or as soon as possible for a vaginal birth, for c-section, it is better to wait a couple of weeks to let the scar heal.

“Remember, there is a natural time after childbearing when a women is considered to be of the underworld.
She is dusted with its dust, watered by its water, having seen into the mystery of life and death, pain and joy during labour. So, for a time she is ‘not here’ but rather still ‘there’. It takes time to re-emerge.”
