Pregnancy can be such a precious and tumultuous time – but it can feel less stressful with good support.
Earth & Womb Offerings
I support pregnant women and expecting parents to make the pregnancy and postpartum transition with as much ease and joy as possible. Prenatal counselling sessions meet you wherever you’re at emotionally, and can include a focus such as: help to reduce fears or concerns about birth; debriefing a previous difficult birth or postpartum; feeling unsure about your pregnancy options.
I support new mothers and parents to feel confident and connected to their baby and their intuition, and to explore ways to make their postpartum as joyful as possible.
Sessions often focus on: identity changes and adjusting to being a parent, relationship challenges, coping with stress and anxiety in the postnatal period, or coping after a difficult or traumatic birth.
Holistic, Trauma-Informed Counselling For Women
I support women to overcome challenges and struggles to live a more joyful and meaningful life. This includes support to manage and heal anxiety or depression. I also work with survivors of childhood or adult abuse or trauma (including sexual violence and domestic violence). If you're searching for a body-mind approach to recovering from trauma then please reach out.
Handmade Ceramics & Art
For small batch, handmade ceramics and sculptures or functional pieces please see my Earth & Womb Art Insta page. I also share textile art and eco-dyed pieces, and other creations as they emerge.
Mentoring & Professional Supervision
Are you a doula or midwife starting out? Or a seasoned doula, birth worker or midwife looking for safe space to be held and heard to debrief this intense and amazing work? Are you a social worker or counsellor who works with families in the perinatal period and would like professional supervision? You deserve support too.
Growing Your Village
I co-facilitate a women's circle for mothers in Brisbane, at It Takes A Village Midwifery centre in Kenmore, Brisbane. If you are pregnant, a new mother, or a seasoned mother- or anywhere on the spectrum of mothering, and are looking for an intentional, sacred space to be held and heard, please join us.

What was it like having Anne support you at your birth?
“She was my rock. Anne was there without being obviously present. Her support was complete and gave me strength. I don’t know what I would have done without her! .. Anne, our doula … was instrumental in Lily’s birth being drug and intervention free and an amazing and positive experience. It’s lovely to continue our connection with this wonderful woman and have her in our lives. Xo”
