My name is Emma and I am mum to two beautiful children who ignited my passion to leave the corporate world to become a postpartum doula.
I struggled with the change from individual, to ‘mum’. It was a change of pace, a change of identity, and a real struggle to find how this new role of me, and the responsibilities and expectations that came with it, would work. So, during many nights sitting up with sick, sleepless, or just plain needy children I thought about all the ways women are left to ‘fend for themselves’ once children are born. All around me it appeared that at a time when new mums are at their most vulnerable, they are left tired, unappreciated and struggling to cope with the day-to-day.
So began my journey to become a Postpartum Doula. It is my desire to help new mum’s trust their instincts, learn to ask for help, prioritise what is most important, and become confident mothers, happy and ENJOYING life with a newborn, and beyond.
I have completed Postpartum Professional training recognised by the Australian College of Midwives, completed COPE Basic Skills in Perinatal Mental Health, Breastfeeding Information courses and am a member of the Doula Network Australia.
