Hire a Doula
Become a Doula
Your Pregnancy, Your way
It is important to us that your memories from your pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period are happy, supported, proud and feelings of strength and joy. Your doula will support you as parents and your family through pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood.
Some of the support a Doula can provide:
establish the birth plan that is happiest and healthiest for your family
help you understand what is happening in an unfamiliar/clinical time
provide support to the partner and involve them in the process
be your advocate when you are uncomfortable
be an extra set of hands when your support is tired
assist you in learning how to care for your baby
help with house work or meal prep
assist you to regaining self confidence post labour
inform you of the services to aid you with physical recovery
care for baby so mother can care for herself
Every family is different, as is every doula. We believe it is extremely important that you find the right doula for you.
Baby shower gift idea
OUR VISION is to enhance the wellbeing for those pregnant and in early parenthood.
We want this for all New Zealanders and are working towards government funding/assistance.
There is pressure from society to give birth "naturally," to breastfeed exclusively, and to be the perfect mother but this is not matched with adequate support for most. It is my aim to increase and improve support.
My background is in Paramedicine where I work on a frontline ambulance. I have attended many medical emergencies, some being child birth or pregnancy related concerns. I have seen people excited to enter a new chapter of life with the miracle new life they have created. I have also seen too often the ambulance being called because families did not have the information or empowerment to make the situation the most comfortable experience possible for themselves.
There is a gap in the emotional support surrounding this time.
I have seen strong friends, whom have suffered post-natal depression. Childbirth although a very natural process, can be overwhelming. I see the need for advocacy for better mental health surrounding pregnancy and the first months with your baby.
By improving the mental health of parents we are aiming to have happy and healthy beginnings for babies to grow into good people.
I envision all family frameworks being able to make use of our Doula services from single parents, international parents, young parents, gay parents, surrogate mothers and parents with already busy families.
I desire to pair you with a Doula who is a good match with you and your support people. Use the contact section so I can know a bit more about you; I will contact you.
Love, Do Love (Kate)
