Education and Training

Birth services including doula work and placenta services are currently unregulated in Australia so it’s very important to make sure that the person you choose to assist you with your birth is appropriately trained and experienced.

I completed my Doula training with the Australian Doula College in March 2012 and have been a certified Birth and Post-Natal Doula since 2013 and, as you can see below, that was just the beginning of my training.

I’m a big believer in continuing my education and am constantly investing in expanding my repertoire of skills and knowledge in my work.  There are so many aspects to pregnancy and birth (and beyond!) and each of the courses and trainings I have done have contributed to my skills and resources and help me to provide the best possible service to my clients.
