I want you to have an amazing pregnancy, birth and post-natal experience!
You Are Strong! Powerful! Capable! Worthy! A Badass! Radiant! Beautiful! Safe! Awesome! Amazing! A Warrior! Incredible!
I'm so glad you're here!
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Whether this is your first, second or fifth – it is a time for excitement, celebration and love. I am a pregnancy & post-partum doula & physio and I LOVE how amazing the female body is!
If you’re a planner or a go-with-the-flow kind of girl, you have the right to have an input and an opinion to your pregnancy and birth management.
If you’re used to a good, hard gym workout or just enjoy a casual stroll to get your morning coffee; you can prevent aches and pains, prepare your body for labour and decrease your recovery time.
I was frustrated with hearing that women were not enjoying their pregnancies and birth experiences, so I created the Birth Sweet to ensure all women had access to the tools they need during one of the most exciting and joyous periods of our lives.
I love to help women and their partners to be strong, confident and love bringing their babies into the world! You’ve got this. Trust me. I’ll support you to come into your own and birth you baby like your mind and body know how – it’s in there.
My secret? You! You know how to birth your baby, you are the centre of your baby’s world and only YOU can make the right choices for you, your baby and your partner.
- You have the right to the birth you want to have.
- You have the right to be treated with respect and love.
- You have the right to make the decisions for yourself and your baby.
It’s your birth. For your baby and for your motherhood journey!

Nicky had a plan and knew what she wanted her birth to be like. She is the perfect example of why making a plan is not about getting exactly what you wish for, but knowing how to advocate for yourself and make the right choices for yourself when things don’t go to plan.
Steph is a friend of mine and I interviewed her for my doula training to find out about women’s experiences with caesareans. We talked mostly about her first birth; an emergency caesarean that she found very traumatic. I needed to know how her second caesaren birth helped her heal and she was happy to share her positive caesarean story.
I’m sick of hearing this phrase. This phrase makes it seem like the woman needs to put all of her needs and wants aside to make sure their baby is ok and that her desire for a particular experience is selfish. I can guarantee that she does not want anything to go wrong. She already has her baby as her first priority, no-one needs to remind her or try to justify it.
