Holistic Doula Support - Birth & Postpartum

I have had the honour and privilege of being both a Birth and Postpartum Doula.

Sharing the amazing environment that we create together with the new parents and baby is truly magical. Experiencing a life within another, and the unconditional love and joy this brings are all miracle moments. Observing and assisting in the process of birth, and witnessing the crowning and the entry into Mother Earth is indescribable.

After delivery, the support I provide the vulnerable mumma is sacred. Assisting with lactation, nutrition and nourishment on all levels during the healing and recovery journey in the confinement period is a true blessing. Observing the bond between mumma and bubba is a gift. Gratitude.

In our Asian culture and tradition, the doula lives with the new family for 4-6 weeks and offers assistance where needed. After this time, a celebration of the new mother and her baby/babies will be held where gifts are offered - usually money and/or gold.

"Mothering the mother", doulas enable women and their loved ones the most gratifying pregnancy and birth experiences possible, from pregnancy to birth and into parenthood.

A Doula (Greek word) is "a person, usually a woman, who is not medically trained but who gives help and support to a woman during pregnancy and during and after the birth of her baby" Cambridge Dictionary

Corrine Brown is a certified Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula and Death Doula.

Postpartum Support Testimonial - New Mother:
Corrine came to visit us twice after the birth for Postpartum Doula services. We spent time chatting over my birth experience and meeting our baby again. Corrine's daughter Maegan also joined her as our photographer for the day. Maegan is one very talented photographer and took some lovely intimate photos. It was so beautiful to witness their connection together. Corrine brought some delicious home cooked meals, snacks, goodies and facilitated sound healing to both myself and my baby. Belly aromatherapy massage, hot stones massage, belly binding, sitz bath and yoni were part of my postpartum sessions. In between the visits, Corrine kept close contact and was there for support when needed. Thanks very much Corrine for your tremendous guidance and support from the very beginning till the end. Iím so pleased to have had you as part of my experience!

Birth Doula & Postpartum Doula Testimonial - New Father:
I had never even heard of a Doula until my fiancť explained it to me. I wasnít sure to begin with but with all the pre-birth sessions that my parter had gone to with Corrine, I knew Corrine and her treatments were definitely helping and I was all for it. Every time my fiancť came home from having one of Corrine's sessions, I could tell that her whole mindset and energy had shifted to a more positive and powerful state, ready for her next stage. Then came the birth ... I like to think of myself as someone who is independent and strong minded but I was truly out of my depth here.
Having Corrine as our Birth and Postpartum Doula, supporting my partner and myself, was by far one of the best decisions we have ever made. From start to finish, Corrine was our backbone and with her experience and knowledge, she gave us the confidence and strength to push through and maintain focus. I can genuinely say that without her positive energy and support, I donít know how we would have managed. I am forever grateful to Corrine for caring so much for the woman I love. Thank you so so much and we wonít forget what you did for us.
