SUPPORTED BY CARLA, TRADITIONAL BIRTH ATTENDANT AND JODI CERTIFIED DOULA

Our home birth service is for women who want an empowered birth experience.

The birthing woman " leads ", trusting her own body and following her instincts throughout the process of pregnancy and birth.

You will have the freedom, and responsibility to make your own decisions while being gracefully supported by two traditional birthworkers who understand the art of trusting life and birth.

Jodi and Carla have both been working with women and babies for the last 25 years.

You will receive education, care and support during your pregnancy, labour and birth and for the first few weeks afterwards.

As birthworkers we practise a "hands off " approach, empowering you to make the decisions and supplying you with our advice and expertise gained in our many years of watching birth unfold and families grow.

Our practice does not include medical care or intervention, we bring herbal knowledge, hands-on bodywork and our deep understanding of the unfolding of natural birth to you.

This birthing service is for the woman who trusts in life and wants to experience birth as an opportunity for growth and an invitation into new depths of love and joy.

Carla and Jodi made me feel safe, confident and relaxed during my pregnancy, birth preparation and labour. 

I remember thinking their Home visits were such a lavish time for me.  They made me feel so special.  Their support was free-flowing and my husband and I had their un-divided attention. They honoured me; my decisions and my body.  

I had the luxury of having all birth preparation visits held at home. Never once was I required to travel in the summer heat to an appointment. Jodi would make herbal foot baths for me and we’d talk about all things birth and the power of women’s bodies. Carla would bring fresh herbs/flowers picked from her garden and I’d learn more about practical and traditional birthing practices and the mechanics of birth. 

I felt empowered and ready for Birth. 

Just as I wished, I was able to labour freely. I never felt pushed or rushed to progress through my long labour. Jodi and Carla never left my side and sat with me through every contraction.  I laboured in my backyard, at Currimundi Lake and finally in my bathroom where my husband was ready to catch our baby boy in his arms. 

Birth is awe inspiring!

Post Birth, I feel like I’m the luckiest woman in the world. I’ve been given a Gift and that was made possible because of Jodi & Carla.
