Hello, lovely one.
My name is Marley Blunt. I am wife to Tyron, Mama to Jamie and slave to my Pug, Frankie. Alongside these roles I am a heartfelt doula who is hopelessly obsessed with all things pregnancy, birth, post part and being a mother in general.
I had my son in 2021 and truly wish I had connected with the person I aim to be for women today.
Being true to my star sign, we Scorpios are all about that deep, vulnerable conversations. Surface level chit chat is not my thing! I love to get to the nitty gritty and love getting to know people on a soul level.
Without sounding too much like a Bachelor episode, my ‘journey’ to being a doula was the pure emotional transformation my own birth bought. If there is one thing we shouldn’t have a ‘go with the flow’ attitude towards, it’s birth, yet here is me thinking ‘naaah, it’s just another day of the year’.. WRONG. It is a deeply empowering experience that should be honoured with the upmost respect and educating yourself is vital.
After really reflecting on my own birth, it made me realise how much work we have to do when it comes to birthing women and the environment around them. Becoming a doula came to the fore front to me and played around in my mind for a few months – it was important to me that I was serious about doing this for a career and not just swept up in the high that is childbirth. Safe to say, I knew it was for me when my little one was 9 months and I enrolled in the Doula Training Academy with Vicki Hobbs. This course was incredible and filled me with the tools and skills needed to be all of the things for birthing women and I aim to continue growing my studies to offer women more services in the future.
It is my purpose, as a doula, to help you feel advocated for, nurtured, seen, heard, and supported. However you want to birth, whether that is a hospital birth, home birth, in a shopping centre (jokes, let’s not do that!) I got you. I have taken time to make sure I have up to date resources for your viewing and here to help guide you to the birth you desire.
Drawing on my knowledge about the process of birth and how the maternity system works, I am here to hold space for you in your chosen birth environment and help create a space where you feel safe, and your voice feels amplified. Having a doula has been statistically shown to lower intervention while helping women feel overall more satisfied with their birth, which is what we are a society should be working towards.
Also, dear reader, you are about to embark or perhaps have already embarked on the most incredible, consuming, empowering, hard at times, beautiful season of your life and as a fellow mama, I know how special it is and it would be a total honour to be your doula and guide you into this season or if you are a mama already, provide nurturing support while you navigate another baby.
After your birth, I am here to nourish you, listen to you debrief and be an extra set of hands to whatever jobs you would like help with so you spend less time cleaning and more time with your beautiful new baby.
If you are looking for a doula who is non judgemental, loves a bit of lighthearted banter but is absolutely serious when needed and who honestly worships the ground mothers walk on, then please press below to arrange a non-obligation consultation to see if we are the right fit.
It is so important to me that you feel comfortable and safe with your chosen doula.
My name is Marley Blunt, and I am a doula who has completed extensive training at the Doula Training Academy with Vicki Hobbs. I am based in Adelaide and if you would like to discuss using my Doula Services, please contact me:
