I offer support to women through the different phases of their lives. My primary focus is on women and couples in pregnancy, birth and beyond. In this space you can get to know me better and see what services I offer.
Thank you for being here, I am looking forward to hearing from you.


The first year of motherhood

"The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail – when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her. The emotional labour pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pangs of birth; these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred."

–Joy Kusek


“Looking back at my pregnancy and birth, I feel so grateful to have had Louise as our doula. Knowing that I wanted to have a home birth, I really felt it necessary to have a woman in the room who was there to support my partner and I through the process. Although we didn’t end up getting to give birth at home, I still don’t regret hiring Louise at all because we got so many hours of private birth preparation and I could always reach out to her for any doubts or questions.
Having Louise as our doula allowed my pregnancy, labor, and first few days of postpartum to go so smooth, and I am so thankful for that.”
