The story of my first child’s birth and my birth as a mother cannot be separated from the death of my own mother. She died on my due date, the 26th of December 2014. Of course it was tragic but fortunately it was a gradual process, and I was prepared for this event over manyContinue reading “The birth story of Yemaya Laluna”
My wish for the birth of my second child was to experience physiological birth, what I believed would be safest for me and my baby, but also because I didn’t get that experience with my first child. I sensed the best place to support this would be at home, and I found a beautiful midwifeContinue reading “The birth story of Sol”
I was recently motivated to share this photo. I am at my most bare, most powerful, most wild.

“I was lucky enough to have Carla work with me through my pregnancy and postpartum.
Carla is such a genuine caring and down to earth person, she has such a calming presence and is so easy to get along with. I instantly felt comfortable with her.
The way she cares and the passion she puts into her work is so inspiring. I will never forget the feeling of being cared for with so much love – from the friendly conversations to the hot nourishing meals after birth.
After spending time with her through my pregnancy I felt even more confident to birth my baby the way I wanted to. I felt a shift in my fears about labour just by talking it through with Carla. She also shared techniques with me for the few fears that i did still have and when the time came, it was so nice to have these techniques to draw on.
Carla played such a huge part in my pregnancy and postpartum. I felt SO held and cared for, something I did not have with my first born. It made an incredible difference and I’ll always be so grateful for her passion, wisdom and care.”

“Carla gave me the opportunity to plan & prepare for my birth and explore my options. Without her support I would not have had the skills/confidence to labour/deliver my daughter without fear. So thankful for your support’

I acknowledge the great disparity of care and birth outcomes currently facing the Indigenous mothers and babies of this country. Therefore, a percentage of my profits go to the Birthing on Country project by Waminda @wamindasouthcoast
