Pregnancy, labour and birth top the list of life changing experiences. Once you’ve gone through it, you can’t change it so of course you want to make it the best experience possible. How do you see this experience unfolding for you? Do you feel that you have all the knowledge and information required to give you the experience you want?
Women were born to birth, however, in this day and age we are dealing with a multitude of distractions and decisions when it comes to birth, and it's important to ensure you are not only physically and emotionally prepared, but well informed and supported, in order to achieve the birth experience you are seeking.

"Alison was a fantastic support providing information and emotional guidance without being imposing, throughout our pregnancy and labour.
She quietly, calmly and confidently allowed us to go our own way through everything, just being a constant rock when we needed her, particularly when panic started to set in just prior to the transition period!
Her gentle coaching, driving us to the hospital and support for us all was beautiful and enabled us to look back on the whole birth with much love as we had felt empowered and informed throughout.
My husband Roger and I could not have asked for a better birth thanks to Alison! While Roger was a little dubious at the start, once he realised Alison was there to support him and help him to support me, he felt in control and able to be a fantastic birthing partner!
I can think of no higher compliment to give Alison than to say I would be very happy for her to be part of baby number two when the time finally comes!
Thanks for a great job Alison :)"

Doula Alison gets her first baby cuddle at the 1 week postnatal visit
Baby Jaeden was welcomed earthside on Monday 24th September 2012 by first time parents A and P. He certainly kept his parents (and doula!) on their toes with lots of contractions for 5 days before he decided to make his appearance. Of course, it's always worth the wait....
"...an experience of the phenomenal capacity of our birthing body can give us an enduring sense of our own power as women. Birth is the beginning of life; the beginning of mothering, and of fathering. We all deserve a good beginning." ~ Sarah J. Buckley, author of Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering
