"Laying the foundations to nourish and preserve what we innately are - good humans"
work with me
Firstly I love what I do, so I don't feel like its work! Supporting women and families through pregnancy, birth and the postpartum adjustment period is exactly where I am am supposed to be of service. I want to get to know you, your families, your fears, your birth wishes, where you are being challenged so that my time with you can be put to the best use.
I have a range of options available that can be fine tuned to suit where you are at! This journey is all about you, so let's figure out where I can support you. What are your immediate needs?
Positive Mindset and Fear Clearing
Doting Dads Support
Whatever your need is, its important to find the right person to support you. I would love to have a call with you and hear about where your at and what your needs are!
I am currently based in Ubud, Bali. I support local women in birth and work online supporting women all over the globe!
My name is Steph a Mother, Doula, Couples Coach and Pre-natal yoga teacher. I come from a hardworking middle class Scottish family in Aberdeen, at 7 I relocated to Perth, Australia. My childhood was fairly run of the mill - I was always provided for with basics and my parents really did the best they knew how for me, I did however feel a deep disconnect and lack of affection. I can’t remember us being a particularly openly loving family although we all loved eachother…I remember bottling emotions up and being the “strong” one. Throw in a family breakdown, a mother that worked so hard to provide for us, a manipulative/aggressive step dad, my father passing away and none of this really being talked about too much - I ended up disconnecting severely and in my early 20’s turned to drugs, alcohol, relationships, stripping, travelling as forms of escapism.
I don’t share the above to get pity, I share as after hitting some fairly huge rock bottoms I found myself on a spiritual journey of unraveling “my story” I learned that our story really begins at conception. How we are birthed into the world has a HUGE impact on our ability to connect, love and trust. Providing support, education and love for mothers and families, working with couples on how to understand each other’s needs in this time of transition and creating a framework for communication and understanding in the family dynamic has become my life’s work. These are the foundations I am passionate about preserving, nourishing and growing.
I would love to be part of your journey through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
"Steph was there to guide me thru the birth of my second child. She was a calming and strong presence who gave direction when needed and was my voice when I couldn't speak. She made my experience a more peaceful and steady journey and I highly recommend her. She was made for this kind of work" C Tehrani
I truly believe that is every mothers right to have support and education during this time regardless of age, race or financial status. I volunteer with a couple of birthing and maternal health organisations. Knowledge is empowerment and by sharing what I have learned with mothers, midwives and health workers it begins a small ripple as the information is passed by word of mouth out in to the wider community.
