Hi, I'm Alyssa and I live in Wollongong, Dharawal Country, one of the most beautiful areas of NSW. I live here my husband and 3 kids. I have a passion to see the current culture of birth changed, for families to own their birth and for the rates of birth trauma to be reduced. I am passionate about seeing people loved, cherished and to have a sense of belonging.
Why I became a Doula
I have always had a passion for mums and babies, this became even stronger after the birth of my own daughter. I was shocked at how disconnected I felt from my care providers and how much information I had to source for myself that really should have been coming from them. I had a beautiful birth, but it made me wonder, are other women getting enough information to have a birth experience that they are at peace with? Once I started researching options, I came across Doula’s and the work they do, and the service they can provide to families. I knew this was it!
