“Lou has an incredible knack for providing intuition-based, grounding support, and this guided me as I moved up, over and beyond a series of hurdles faced during my pregnancy.
In working with her intuition, Lou honoured and brought to the fore my own intuition. She encouraged me to appreciate, tap into and realise my innate birthing power.
Deep gratitude to you, Doula Lou, for sustaining us on this very special birthing journey – a wondrous, uplifting journey from VBA2C aspiration to realisation.”M xx.
“Working with Doula Lou was wonderful. I felt loved and respected. Lou helped me to articulate the type of birth experience I wanted, and gave me some resources to be able to get it. She was very intuitive and was able to give me helpful resources without overwhelming me. She seemed to know exactly what to say, give and do at every stage, including during my labour. I remember a few emails that made me cry because I felt so understood and during labour thinking yep, this is exactly what I need (from suggesting positions, using light touch, and even the music that was put on at different stages).Tegan.
Lou never pushed an agenda, and really worked with us to empower us to achieve our dream birth.”
“My sweet Doula Lou, thanks for making me feel so safe and protected during my labour. You knew exactly what I needed before I even did from wet washers to chocolate. You’ve made me feel so confident as a mother to a toddler and newborn and have really lifted me up when l was feeling defeated. You truly are so special.”Lori – Water birth.
“My birth was empowering – a space that was filled with a beautiful energy and supportive people who all shared the same views of a birth that my partner and I chose to have.Elithia – 2nd Babe.
Hiring a Doula has been an amazing experience and a true gift to myself. Lou provided the support that I very much needed and what I missed out on with my first-born child. I loved being able to talk to someone that was calm, rational and comforting. She made me feel not just heard but inspired, in every aspect of my pregnancy, birth and post natal care. I always felt better after talking to Lou.
If you want the ultimate birth team, invite Doula Lou to support you, you won’t regret it!”
“Every Mum needs a Doula Lou in their life! From 34 weeks pregnant the support I’ve had from this lady has been incredible and life changing. So grateful I found you! From the calls, texts, supportive words, birth planning, birth support and all the post natal support including cooking, washing, cleaning, chats, cups of tea, shopping, food drops and most importantly love, it’s all been amazing. Lou supports women in Wodonga, Albury + surrounds and I can’t recommend her highly enough. Big love to you Lou!”Home birth Mum, during pandemic.
“We really can’t thank you enough for your support Lou. When I first contacted you, I was really stressed. We had some hopes for our birth that were starting to feel a little out of reach; I felt like a burden. Within minutes of talking with you on the phone, that changed completely. I got a strong sense that you were interested in us and our hopes, you completely validated our position and helped me to feel empowered in working towards whatever plan made most sense to us. You didn’t offer your opinion or your advice, instead trusting that we knew what we needed for our family. My anxiety dissipated throughout that conversation and I knew then that we couldn’t be without you!
We felt completely held in mind the entire time. You cared enough to remember what we spoke about and never wavered in your position; you provided us with stability, even when we had some changes in plans along the way.
Our birth was magical. It was everything we had hoped for. I felt your presence the entire time and when I really needed it, your strength was absolutely invaluable. You really went above and beyond, never leaving us feeling alone or unsupported.
After the birth, you provided us with beautiful birth photos that we will treasure.
There are so many more reasons to thank you.”E xx.
“Lou, I’d hire you to be my doula 100 x over in a heartbeat and will wholeheartedly recommend you to any other birthing Mumma’s out there. You rock!
Thank you for helping me bring my little boy safely into the world, it was an honour having you there.”Sarah.
“The labour and birth of my baby was blissful, magical and positively life changing. The whole experience of becoming a Mum was everything I’d hoped for, planned for and more.
I was able to achieve the birth I wanted as I felt so incredibly supported by my team. Lou specifically believed in me from the moment we met and having her there by my side, encouraging me, made my birth possible.
I loved discussing all things pregnancy, birth and newborns with Lou, she also regularly touched base with me in-between our visits which I really appreciated. I thoroughly enjoyed her company and benefited in many ways from the continuity of care.
Her endless, encouraging and soul enriching support, gave me the confidence in myself to know that I was on the right track.”Jessica.
“Thank you so much for your care and support as my Doula Louise. I first made contact at about 20 weeks pregnant and since then you’ve been tremendously helpful, non-judgmental and supportive. Always a person I could talk to and learn from. You helped me feel confident in my decision to have a c-section and helped me prepare by discussing and overcoming my fears.H.
You supported me in hospital and were present when I saw the lactation consultant. I found it helpful having you there to remind me what she said when it felt like information overload.
It was great to have the practical assistance of the home visits you offered. It was great that you came over and did some cooking, cleaning and take care of baby while I showered. Your support was essential, so helpful and just what I needed. Thank you so much!”
“Louise, our amazing Doula… Thank you so much for your kindness, knowledge and wisdom.
Midwives change shift, they come and go because they are providing medical care to a number of patients. Your peaceful, continuous support in the birthing suite is something I will be forever grateful for. You guided me on how to be the most supportive partner I could be and you were an excellent source of comfort and reassurance to my incredible wife.
You were the perfect person to help provide us with knowledge and support throughout the various stages of pregnancy, labour and post-natally.
Even though our baby arrived early, the birth was amazingly fluid and we were as prepared as possible, thanks to you and your support. Thank you!”Craig.
“From the beginning Lou held such a sacred and safe space for me and my husband to explore all the possibilities for our journey through pregnancy, birth and parenthood. Working with Lou felt like we always had someone in our corner, cheering us on, providing information and asking us the important questions, which would prepare us for our journey. Lou’s capacity to be respectful, listen and hear what we wanted was phenomenal and the continuity of care that Lou provided for our family, during the trying times of COVID, was crucial for us to achieve our outcomes. Lou was made for Doula work, her caring and compassionate nature, her passion to provide real and unwavering support for women in this space and her capacity to be truly present was and is inspiring. Lou has been such a huge part of our journey, we are so grateful to have chosen her as our Doula and we love her dearly.”Tamara.
