Have you ever wondered why some women have positive births and others don’t?
Hi, I'm Cheryl a Brisbane doula working with couples to achieve their Ideal Birth.
As Brisbane's most experienced pregnancy, birth, and postnatal doula, I share my knowledge and wisdom from over 1,000 hospital births with you.
Currently 33 - 45 per cent of women perceive their births to be traumatic (Beck, Driscoll & Watson, 2013) This is not acceptable and a less than optimal way to begin your life as a new family.
During my 30 year career as a midwife and Brisbane doula, I have identified three major challenges couples face during pregnancy and childbirth.
Firstly: More is expected of first time fathers than ever before. They are often the only support person for their partner. How can they possibly know what to do?
Secondly: Couples lack the knowledge and skills to cope with the unknown intensity of pregnancy, labour, birth and the early days of parenting.
Thirdly: Positive hospital birth may be difficult for you to achieve alone in our risk- averse hospital environment.
Together we identify your individual needs, and meet them. I'm here to help and I have solutions that contribute to positive birth outcomes for your family.
I will be there with you every step of the way.
