Hello, my name is Celeste, I am a doula who specialises in the postnatal period.
I work with women who have just welcomed a new life into their family, maybe you are expecting a new baby too?
Some women worry a lot about how they will cope with the pain of birth or worry that they won’t get the birth they have been planning for, it’s hard to think about what comes after the birth. Most new mums can’t anticipate just how they are going to cope with the physical and mental healing that needs to happen after the birth of a baby.
Maybe you are worried about the sleepless nights or concerned about breastfeeding or maybe you aren’t worried about anything at all because you haven’t had the time to think that far ahead yet.
Up to 80% of new Mums say they feel anxious and overwhelmed after the birth of their baby and one in seven new mums in Australia suffers from postnatal depression!
What if I tell you it doesn’t need to be this way?
Rather than overwhelmed and lost would you like to feel overcome with love, confident and relaxed? Rather than anxious, tired and stressed would you like to feel nourished, supported and fulfilled?
I support my clients to have a beautiful, healing postnatal experience because as important as the birth is, it is only the very beginning of the story. The experience of new motherhood and the bonds of love formed at this time last a lifetime and set us on a path which is our journey through motherhood. Why not start that story with a smile?
