I support expecting parents in the Canberra region, who are worried or would like more support for their upcoming birth. My continuous, emotional, physical and educational support is a way to create confidence going into birth, unlike other types of professionals in the birth space I am with you every step of the way, just like a best friend or a personal cheerleader, who knows their shit.
It’s hard to find the words to express the gratitude my husband and I hold for Kayla.
During my pregnancy I was in a place of feeling such a strong need to feel held on a more emotional level. Kayla was so warm and approachable from the very beginning and I knew her presence was exactly what we both needed on our journey.
Kayla conducts herself with such integrity and passion, always leading with love, kindness and transparency.
The information provided to us in the lead up to the birth was so detailed and informative, with nothing off limits.
When things became complex during my labour, Kayla was the calm and loving energy we both needed, holding us and guiding us through the process with such intention and tenderness.
We both would have been lost without her and she is hands down the best investment we could have made to help us prepare for the birth of our daughter. We cannot recommend her enough and will be forever grateful to have had her there with us.
Kayla is magic in human form. We were open to having a doula for our pregnancy and birth but weren't sure what exactly that entailed. When we met Kayla, we knew she was the one for us. The main question I had about having a doula was whether she would support me having pain intervention during labour. Kayla explained that she was 100% there to support whatever we wanted through every step of the process. This was proven over and over as my pregnancy was incredibly difficult and our birth plan changed multiple times. Kayla was a complete godsend through the pregnancy as she came to our house and taught us everything we needed to know and everything we didn't even know we had to know! We didn't have to go to any classes at the hospital which was really important as I had hyperemesis gravidarum and struggled to leave the house. After every meeting with Kayla, we felt so empowered and excited about the birth process. She answers every question; big, small and super personal with knowledge and judgement free.
When our little baby came, we got to witness Kayla in her true element. She has an innate way of just knowing what you need before you need it. Having Kayla in your house is the opposite of what it feels like to have a "guest". She truly takes care of you without you having to ask or delegate. She takes away the mental load and lets you rest and relax in a time when you are running on adrenaline. After every visit with Kayla, I felt strong, empowered and able to keep going through the newborn phase. She fills your cup with positivity, knowledge and personal strength. She is your own personal cheerleader.
I believe that everyone should invest in a doula for their pregnancy and birth. It makes the biggest difference from feeling lost and overwhelmed, to feeling excited and prepared. Kayla is incredibly passionate about caring for mothers and does it so well. She is a true angel and made our experience so much easier and more enjoyable.
I first moved down to Canberra when I was 18 weeks pregnant with my fiancé. We had no family, friends or support network down here and as you can imagine it was absolutely daunting being pregnant with my first baby. I stumbled across Kayla only by chance and sometimes I think there was someone watching over me that day because from the second we met, I felt an instant friendship and connection. I felt safe knowing Kayla would be on this journey with us.
From our first in person meet, I knew it was the right fit. We went over so much, birth education, my preferences, my mental space going into birth and being a mother - all of it. There wasn't a time I felt even if I was scared or anxious, I couldn't reach out to Kayla to express my concerns. My whole concept of birth and the female body changed the more sessions we did leading up to the birth of my baby boy.
As expected, I went well over my due date, and although getting pressure from the medical team to be induced, I decided against it because there was no reason. If I hadn't work with Kayla, I wouldn't have known my rights as a woman and that I'm in control of my own body and can say no to anything that I don't want. When I tell people I felt empowered going into labor, I really mean it and I can only thank Kayla for that. Birth didn't go as planned, but the whole time I had my beautiful doula by my side, and it just made that day a lot easier. I felt safe, and that's all I ever wanted to feel. From the moment I went into labor to leaving the hospital with my new baby, she was there for us. (Even picking my mum up from the airport, what a legend)
Seeing the look on Kaylas face when she held my beautiful boy for the first time had my heart exploding. The love she had for my son was incredible. It's a moment we will never forget.
So, thank you, Kayla. Thank you for all your postpartum visits, your runs to the shops for me, the constant checkups and support I always received from you, but most of all your friendship. I cannot express my gratitude to you enough, how can I ever repay someone for being there on the best day of my life and making it just that easier.
If there is one thing that has been missing from the home birth scene, it is aesthetically pleasing birth pools… until now.
Thoughtfully and lovingly designed by a doula and home birth mum of four, this stunning off white professional birth pool has it all! Earthy tones (goodbye blue pools!), ripple pattern on the floor, handles right where you need them, strong and sturdy walls to lean on, a cup holder for your water bottle, and a handy QR code to look up the instructions…
We also have an optional seat which can be used under one of our disposable liners, giving you all the options you could need to customise your pool. Made from eco PVC, this beauty is free from harmful chemicals such as lead, cadmium and pthalates. It also has plenty of space for your partner or kids to join you in the pool as you labour and birth your sweet baby.
Our birth pools have handles on the outside only, which means that the liner doesn’t have to try to awkwardly fit over inner or top handles making them unusable, and it means the outer handles anchor the liner in place perfectly. The round shape means beautiful symmetry and makes this gorgeous pool even prettier. The floor inflates just enough to cushion your knees perfectly (once full of water) but not so much that it is too unstable to stand on safely.
