It’s impossible to truly describe how wonderful the experience was with Jo there to guide me through my labour. With her love and support, I was able to deliver my baby in a calm, peaceful setting without pain medication - something I never thought I would be able to do.

Jo Arnott: Doula

My road to becoming a doula has been a very natural progression. The decision to enter this field from my previous role working with marginalized youth has been an innate and beautiful transition.

 As the mother of three boys my own birth and postpartum experiences have further propelled me. With the support of those around me I was able to achieve very positive birth experiences trusting my body and theirs to work together to bring them earth side. These experiences changed me not only into a mother but also that of a greater supporter of women and advocate of the birthing and postpartum process. 

As a CAPPA trained Birth and Postpartum Doula I have had the honour of supporting numerous families achieve positive birth experiences by providing continuous hands on support and guidance as they welcomed their little loves into this world. I have also had the honour of supporting families postpartum as they transition into parenthood by providing hands on and emotional support, guidance and information as they ease into their new roles. 

Parenthood is truly an individual and beautiful process. In the nurturing role of a Doula my hope is to work with you to provide the most positive transition possible.
