Passionate Birth and Postnatal Doula, Placenta Remedy Specialist, Mindful Hypnobirthing Practitioner, and Yoga-Doula

Hello and welcome! If you’re here, you’re probably wondering who I am and how we can work together. I’m originally from Cape Town, South Africa, and my husband is Catalan. We are blessed with two gorgeous children. Our eldest was born in Bangkok, where my husband and I met.
During my pregnancy in Bangkok, I struggled to find women-centered care. I was on the hunt for birth workers who had me and my baby’s best interests at heart. While discovering that there is no such thing as a midwife in Thailand, I stumbled upon a lovely and supportive group of doulas.

Seeing and experiencing the changes they made in women’s lives in Bangkok, was one of the key motivations in me becoming a doula.

I’ve been mesmerized by pregnancy and birth from an early age. As a child, I watched in awe when animals gave birth to their babies, fascinated by how they always crawled into a dark, hidden spot in the middle of the night. As I grew older, my interest in birth grew immensely. The first birth I attended was in 2009, I was still young and unaware of what was really happening to the woman in labor. My intuition told me to make her feel safe and cared for. I then realized that birth is such a unique moment in a woman’s life.
