A doula is a professional trained in childbirth who provides emotional, physical, educational and spiritual support to a birthing woman in pregnancy, birth and beyond.

The doula’s purpose is to support the birth giver to have a safe, memorable and empowering birthing experience.

What is an ayurvedic postpartum doula?

The postpartum period is a critical moment for both mother and child.

Why have a Birth Doula?

Giving birth is one of most transformative experiences in a woman’s life and every woman deserves having the right and best team by their side.

The evidence shows that when a Doula provides continuous support in labour, the birth outcomes for both mother and baby are more likely to be better and the post-partum period more healthy. 

In ancient cultures women used to birth with a doula, or an elder who were able to support them in this sacred time due to their knowledge and wisdom of labour and delivery, and because of their capacity to create safe space for them to be confident and trust themselves to birth their baby.

"Sole was 100% present with me.  It felt very natural to have sister energy to support me. I don't think I would have been able to be as vulnerable with another as I was with Sole. I felt seen, safe and loved.

She was insightful with the procedures that women are encouraged to have by standard healthcare providers. She has a very good eye for quality herbs, Ayurveda protocols, diet and lifestyle for pregnant and postpartum women. She is someone who lives what she does, honoring her own body as a clear channel. That's the kind of person I want to receive physical and spiritual guidance from during a sacred time. 

My wish is that all women have the support, love and presence during their pregnancy as I was given by Sole."
