What’s Different About Aimee?

 

Lived, personal experience of giving birth in hospital, at home, via caesarean and vaginally (after caesarean).

 

Capacity to understand and interpret current scientific research (thanks to a doctorate from my ‘past life’ as a researcher)

 

I am passionate about women’s birth choices and rights. Consequently, I volunteer with the Australian Breastfeeding Association, Maternity Choices Australia and Doula Network Australia, and coordinate Homebirth New South Wales and Homebirth Australia.

 

Heavily involved and connected within, the pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting world.

 

I’m a Blue Mountains local and therefore have connections with a range of birth workers and practitioners.

 

I’m passionate about informed choices and thus believe every woman should be supported to birth where and with who they feel safest! Additionally, they should be supported to feed their babies how they decide, and held to raise their babies their own way.

Wherever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body and your spirit for the rest of your life.

How can I help you?

As your doula

I can provide you with support in different ways:

Physical

Massage, counter-pressure, acupressure, positioning, breathing, hypnosis…

 

Emotional

Listening while you talk; we’ll laugh and cry together and I’ll be there with you!

 

Informational

Current research, hospital policy and procedures, contacts, reading materials, options and alternatives. We can map your preferences so you can advocate for yourself.

 

Spiritual

I can help you feel held and connected, and will be guided by you as to how best to integrate your own beliefs into these experiences.

 

Cultural

I  can support your cultural needs and traditions, guided by you in how to best support you.

 

I don’t take your partner’s place! Instead, I facilitate an environment in which your partner can be more involved, providing you both with necessary support.

Birth Doula Nepean and Blue Mountains

I support your goals for birth and beyond. Above all, I envision that every family will feel informed, supported, empowered and connected as they grow, birth and nurture their own babies.
