My name is Moran and I am a mother to three healthy, smart and beautiful girls. My journey into the world of birthing began when I had my first child Isabella. Isabella’s birth was one filled with fear, intervention and post partum anxiety, the way all births are not meant to be. I really doubted whether I would have any more children after her birth as I felt the power within me was taken away. However when I did finally summon up the courage to try again I decided to have a doula support me through this important time in my life and support me she did! My daughter Portia’s birth was a moment of pure empowerment and joy. I birthed her in my bath tub at the time when I was scheduled to go in to a private hospital but I was going so well and felt so confident in my body’s abilities that I decided to have a last minute unassisted birth at home with just my husband and doula present. At the moment of transition I remember my fears creeping up on me as I gazed into my reassuring doula’s eyes which gave me the strength to keep going and keep going I did! With my third child I had a very long back labour as she was posterior but again I had my doula that stayed with me for the whole time making sure that my confidence in my body’s abilities weren’t diminished in any way and I birthed her naturally with no intervention needed. I was so inspired and fascinated with the strength and confidence having a doula there gave me in comparison to my first birth and became inspired to want to give other women that same belief in their bodies and their ability to birth naturally that I got. My aim is to give my clients the trust to believe in their bodies and their abilities to handle anything and to let them gain the knowledge to the array of choices that are available so that they can make informed decisions when it comes to their birth.
I have attended many births now as a doula and it is such a rewarding experience to be present for the parents that I work with in aiding them enjoy the birth experience which will leave an imprint for a lifetime. I work in births in any setting and all circumstances, from home birth, birthing centre to hospital births and have witnessed the most AMAZING births imaginable.
