I'm Hayley

Defence wife & Mother of 4 amazing daughters (two born at Kaleeya Hospital and two born at home) - from toddler to teenagers

 

 We live in an old treehouse in the Perth Hills with our dog, cat & chickens and will soon be relocating to a farm in the great southern region of WA where we will be rehabilitating an old apple orchard and running livestock 

 

 I have never had any fear around birth - I watched my Mum give birth to my brother when I was a teenager & from then on was always in absolute awe of the raw power of birth. This is where it all began!

I have a Bachelor of Science (Midwifery) and have been attending births since 2008, though after years of practice I decided that in order to truly be able to support families holistically, the best way forward was as your Doula. I certified as a Doula through the Doula Training Academy, which complimented my Midwifery training extensively. I have also been a Birth Educator since 2011 after completing the Childbirth Educators course at the Royal Women's Hospital in Victoria. I have been a hospital-based birth educator and also offer independent birth classes in the comfort of your own home or via Zoom

 

 I love being able to fully focus on the wellbeing of families from pregnancy, during birth & as they navigate their parenting journey - filling in the gaps that are often left wide open in maternity care today. I have attended all manner of births and at the heart of it all is a drive to help you become central to your birthing experience and for you to feel completely supported by someone who you can trust, and someone who is there to keep you at the centre of, and the expert of your experience

If you are looking for an experienced birth mentor then look no further, let me help you navigate the system I know so well & give you the tools to find your power, harness it and have the best birth and postpartum possible!
