Pregnancy, birth and post partum services for Canberra and it's surrounding regions
BIRTH DOULA SUPPORT
A personalised care service for you and your partner through pregnancy, birth and your first 6 weeks of parenthood. We will get to know each other well during our 3-4 pregnancy appointments and will focus on your unique needs. I provide information and education on self care during pregnancy, the physiology of birth, birth skills, comfort measures and how to increase confidence. You will have me by your side, as needed, throughout labour until you are comfortably settled with your new baby. I will visit once a fortnight for your first six weeks to assist you with feeding, settling, bonding, physical and emotional self care and to debrief your birth experience.

BELLY ART, PAMPERING AND BLESSINGWAYS
To celebrate your journey into motherhood I invite you to treat yourself to a few lovely hours of belly art with henna or body paint. We will create a beautiful memory with a professional photo shoot if you wish. Optional extras include a reiki treatment and foot massage. All provided in the comfort of your own home or mine.
I also have packages available for baby showers and blessingways.

"Kellie stayed calm and smiley and present during my labour, a positive presence in the room. She had a nice balance of offering support and advice without interfering. This meant it felt special between my partner and I, it was intimate and also comforting for us to have her there. She offered practical support by giving us water and food and talking to my family. During my pregnancy it was nice having Kellie sit with us and discuss pregnancy and birth, especially as it helped my partner to be more involved and learn more. We enjoyed the birth map about our intentions and her help with preparing a birth plan was vey valuable. She reminded us to prepare for birth in our own way. I would recommend Kellie to anyone if they felt they needed more support." -Kaya, first time mum
"I had a wonderful experience with Kellie. She came to my blessingway and did some beautiful henna art on my belly then some smaller pieces on the hands/feet for my guests. They were all beautifully done and I miss mine already. I'm so glad she was a part of such a special day and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her in the future." -Amy, bereavement doula and placenta encapsulator
