Hi my name is Cara and I’m so excited you’re here and looking into options for your birth!
I am a mum to my 5 year old daughter Niyala, I’m a natural care-giver, an enthusiastic breastfeeding advocate, a fashion designer, and a lover of the outdoors. I live a plant-based lifestyle, love running and bush walking and experiencing little mindful moments in each day.
I have recently moved back to Perth after living in Tunisia and Zimbabwe for the last 10 years. Whilst living overseas I learnt a lot about myself, other cultures, and what’s really important in life. It was a difficult but transformative time for me. I felt isolated and often at times, unsafe. These feelings translated into the birth of my daughter in Perth in 2015 as I went into it just wanting to go with the flow and blindly trusted the medical system to know what was right for me. How wrong I was!
My experiences in Africa, and the experience of birthing my daughter taught me how important it is to have a loving, nurturing, encouraging support system around you that allows you to be yourself and to feel safe doing so.
It also reiterated the saying “knowledge is power” – it couldn’t ring truer for the birth space. An informed woman is a powerful woman! And that is my promise to you as your doula; to provide you with up-to-date evidence-based information so you can make informed choices about how you want to birth in your greatest power – however that may look to you.
I will give you and your birth partner a safe, non-judgemental, empowering, and nurturing space where you can feel comfortable and confident making the right choices for your birth experience.
My mission is to give you back your power in the birth space by informing you of your choices and options that you have before, during and after labour. I will work side by side with you and your partner in order for you to prepare mentally, physically, and emotionally which will allow you to birth without fear.
I will make sure you feel safe, held, nurtured, encouraged, listened to and explained to in order for you to achieve the birth you want. Whether that’s a vaginal, caesarean, home or hospital birth I will support you and nurture you through this important, life-changing rite of passage that you are walking through.
Women are such amazingly powerful beings- mentally, physically, and spiritually. We create and sustain life from our own bodies. You can’t get more amazing than that!
Whilst we have many superpowers, we are not robots, so it is fundamental to our wellbeing that we receive help. Creating a support system around you is one of the most important parts of preparing for your birth and postpartum period.
I would be so honoured to be a part of your support system and be truly present for you and your partner during this special time.
I am currently still working on my website and social media platforms, so if you would like to talk more about your birthing options, please phone or email me:
