Deb and I share being on call for you from 38 weeks until birth. Depending on who is on call at the time your labour begins, you will have one of us by your side, as needed, throughout labour until you are comfortably settled with your new baby. The beauty of our partnership is that we can relieve each other if labour is long! We will visit two times during the first four to six weeks to assist you with feeding, settling, bonding, physical and emotional self care and to debrief your birth experience.

At each pregnancy appointment and at the postpartum debrief visit, we give you a relaxing 30 min shoulder/foot massage with essential oils or a reiki treatment. During pregnancy, reiki assists with ailments such as morning sickness, back aches and excessive tiredness, plus enhance bonding between mother and child. Reiki can also be given while you labour to enhance the natural flow of birth. Afterwards it has been known to speed healing.

Testimonials

 

When I first met with Kellie, I knew immediately she was going to be the doula for me. Her eyes spoke of a calm and gentle person, and I didn’t realise how true it was until she helped attend the birth of our daughter.

In the lead up to the birth Kellie provided amazing information and resources. She helped put together a birth plan which was highly valuable as it let my partner and I prepare and be able to make informed decisions if needed during labour & birth. Along the way she listened to me, she reassured me and supported me so that I could have trust in myself and my body.

She was attentive and encouraging with word and action throughout the entire labour. This was the biggest help for me, through the wonderful techniques to help ease contractions, to the beautiful essential oils & essences she would offer at different stages, to the powerful words of support. Kellie definitely holds a calm, loving and positive space for your birthing journey.

I cannot thank Kellie enough, she helped me welcome my baby girl with confidence and joy. I would highly highly recommend Kellie to any mumma who is looking for a beautiful support person. 

 

Tegan, first time mum

“I would love to thank Kellie for her unconditional love and support. Not only was she my doula, she was there for my husband and son. Kellie made some amazing ayurvedic meals with ingredients perfect for healing and nourishing, simple and easy to heat and eat for mother post birth. Thank you for your open arms and open heart.”

Kerri, second time mum

I had a wonderful experience with Kellie. She came to my blessingway and did some beautiful henna art on my belly then some smaller pieces on the hands/feet for my guests. They were all beautifully done and I miss mine already.
I'm so glad she was a part of such a special day and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her in the future.
