Postpartum Doula Services

We provide an array of holistic and nurturing services, supporting Womens health and wellbeing. 

Mothers With Doulas Experience Lower Rates of Postnatal Depression.

Mothers With Doulas Report Greater Satisfaction, And Have Greater Confidence In Their Ability To Be Good Mum

My journey as a Postpartum Doula evolved after spending many years travelling abroad to foreign countries and immersing myself in their cultures.  I fell in love with the way a New Mother was celebrated and nurtured after a child was born.  It was then when I started researching and studying these cultures.  Over time I thought,  how could I help nurture and support Newborn Mothers here in our Western culture.

Personalisation is very important to us, as every body is unique. Mel takes the time to understand your body to best help and support you and your babies journey.

What is a Postpartum Doula?

Postpartum doulas help parents and new infants adjust and grow in this new phase of becoming a family. We provide insight and emotional support in the postpartum period and offer another set hands to help adjust to a demanding new schedule.  Empowering newborn Mothers to have the confidence as they make this transition.  

In the past, a community would come together to support new mothers. Now we live in nuclear families and culturally don’t have much understanding of women’s needs after childbirth. Sadly many new mothers feel isolated, overwhelmed and exhausted.

Postpartum doulas are non-medical professionals designed to fill this gap with emotional and physical support during the life-changing transition to motherhood. Postpartum doulas help women step into their roles as mothers with confidence and satisfaction.
