The calling for me to become a doula was loud and clear. I am so deeply happy and humbled to be holding space for you during this transformative time.

Doula support begins in pregnancy, in constant during labour and birth and continues into the postnatal period. Through my training as a birth doula, I have learnt how to best support you, your partner and family throughout this special journey.

With continued support, you can access your most powerful and resilient self. You can then create the most satisfying, positive experience for the birth of your baby and beyond. 

By choosing a doula and having a trusted team supporting you, this continuity of care can have endless positive results for you and your baby, which will be immediately present after birth and continue into your lives together.

Throughout my life, people have come to me for support and placed their trust in me during challenging times. I would describe myself as warm, social and emotionally sensitive and I have good sense of humour. I have been pregnant four times, experienced two pregnancy losses and given birth to my two little bundles, Sonny (aged 7) and Cosette (aged 5). I approached their births with curiosity and excitement.

As your doula, I promise to openly listen without judgment, be present and support your choices. I take on the role of doula with pride and joy and I am honored to be invited into your life at this very special time. 

I so look forward to supporting you on your journey.

Doula Lou – Albury, Wodonga, Yackandandah, Wangaratta and surrounds.
