Hello all! I’m Carlie, proud mum, Certified Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum Doula, & Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner based in the Western suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria.
I love a good brunch, or my favourite activity is a day at the beach, so you’ll mostly find me down the coast over summer, rocking that salty hair or chasing the hot sun up the river. My children are a huge part of my life and I have been on this wild ride called motherhood since my first pregnancy at nineteen.
Pregnancy and birth are a very sacred, transformational process that I believe can change the rest of your life and the generations to come. In my experience of both hospital and homebirth, I learned it’s important to feel informed and safe during your journey in order to get the best out of your experience. I am a lover not a fighter, I operate best when I move in delicacy and love. My softness is my power.
My calling for birth work is like a FIRE – waiting to light up the whole world. I am dedicated to bringing light to physiological birthing in a modern world.
I protect postpartum by guiding you to truly believe in the beauty of birth and how to follow your basic instincts throughout pregnancy, so that you can continue to do so in parenthood.
I will set you up with techniques to ease both physical and mental pain, whilst navigating this often-challenging journey. I love watching women birth themselves into mothers and I know that all women deserve for this to be a positive experience where you are supported to rest, recover and replenish. I am here to guide you to not just survive but to THRIVE!
Let’s break this negative pattern that western culture provides and start getting back to the basics, getting informed, supported, heard, held and nurtured. Medical treatment and modern technology is fantastic and should always be an option – but the divine energy and intuition that this birthing journey brings should not get lost! We must set mothers up with the tools and techniques for THEIR best journey and prepare them for a smooth transition from maiden to mother.
My goal is to make all women and partners EXCITED for birth and to make postpartum recovery a solid part of your birth plan.

I look forward to hearing from you.
