Hey there Mama, 

I'm so glad you are here

I'm Grace - a VBAC Mother of two and doula here in Hawkes Bay, NZ

Nothing lights me up more than helping Mums to feel confident, prepared, informed, valued and cared for doing the most important work in the world - growing, birthing and raising babies!

 

Now, I’ll be honest - Mothering is hard work.

 

After 9 months of pregnancy, then labour and birth your baby has been born and so have you.  There's your physical recovery, the lack of sleep, relationship dynamics changing, learning feeding + settling on the job, the domestic load.

It's A LOT.

 

"Birth is not only about making babies.  Birth is about making Mothers...  strong, competent, capable Mothers who know themselves and their inner strength"
Barbara Katz Rothman

Mothers need support, support, support.

I’m talking a warm meal, reassurance, a hand with the house. 

You need someone who gets it and can make sure your needs are met so you can rest, feed and bond with your baby just as nature intended.

How do I help?

First, PREPARATION for the road ahead.

Your wellbeing is just too important to wing it. 

Having realistic expectations and knowledge about everything from birth to feeding to sleep will be the difference between surviving and thriving.

Next, SUPPORT when you are in it.  

In need of a safe and validating space to debrief your birth experience...

In need of a nap after a sleepless night...

In need of some meal prep...

It is my joy and privilege to fill the gaps and join your modern village.

Grace was amazingly helpful!

I loved being able to talk through different aspects of postpartum life.

She gave me great tips as well as practical questions to discuss with my husband so we felt on the same page. Grace has a lovely encouraging nature and made me feel at ease to ask questions.
