A Doula… Empowers, Educates, Nurtures, Listens, Respects, Supports, Advocates
As a Birth Doula
I accompany women during the birth of their baby offering supportfor a safe and satisfying birth experience. I draw upon my childbirth and pregnancy knowledge and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and clear information to women and their partners.
I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labour progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort.
As a Doula, I do not perform clinical tasks, such as blood pressures, fetalassessments, vaginal exams etc. I am present to provide for your physical comfort,emotional support and advocacy.
In addition to having a medical care provider it’s essential that you also have someone holding space for you and acknowledging your unique personal transformation to becoming a mother.
My role is to help you have a satisfying birth as you define it. The more we explorethis in advance, the better I will be able to fulfil this role.

“Giving Birth can be the most empowering experience of a lifetime- an initiation into a new dimension of mind-body awareness.” ~ Ina May Gaskin.
“Thank you Tenille. We couldn’t have done it without you. You are an incredible Doula. I am so lucky to have met you. You were there for us all the way and that’s what makes it so special. I felt really supported.” ~ Fernanda, Sam & Baby Luah.
“I was lucky enough to have Tenille as my Doula, she immediately made me feel emotionally safe and listened to on our first meeting. Due to Covid-19 I was unable to have her at my birth however the pre-brith visit she had with my partner and I was great and there were 2 tips she gave us that were critical to my successful positive birth, she showed my partner a massage technique on the hips which offered more pain relief than the gas and she also suggested nipple stimulation as a way to create oxytocin and help bring on contractions. after 4 hours of trying everything we tried the nipple stimulation and it worked within minutes. I was so relieved to not have the dreaded drip. without Tenille’s words of wisdom and knowledge my birth would have been completely different. I would recommend her to anyone wishing for a more supposed and positive birth experience.” ~ Amber, Tatum & Baby Koa
“Choosing my birth team meant a lot to me, to have women around that were clear, strong, soft and present… I could not have been gifted with a more confident goddess Doula to help hold the space I needed while I unleashed and birthed our incredible Baby Boy. And not only did she support me but all involved. I will Thank you for a lifetime Tenille.” ~ Ellie, Carlos & Baby Sol
