What people say
Lorraine is an amazing doula and a wonderful person - not only is she very knowledgeable, she has such a positive energy that brightens any situation. I experienced a number of unforeseen complications during my birth (including a very long / slow labour and the sudden onset of preeclampsia) and Lorraine was so supportive and stayed the course with us through 40 hours of labour! As new parents, we underestimated how intense and emotional the birthing experience can be and having Lorraine with us to steer us through it was invaluable. We could not recommend her enough to anyone who is looking to have a doula!

Lorraine is a fantastic doula! I achieved a beautiful gentle birth with the help of her emotional and physical support. My husband and I really benefited from her calm approach during my labour. If you are looking for a kind, supportive and well informed doula, I highly recommend Lorraine.

I wanted a drug-free delivery and I can honestly say I only managed to do it with husband and doula power. Lorraine was the perfect advocate for me, my spiritual, mental and emotional cheerleader. She will not leave your side and really wants the best for you. I’m so grateful she was my doula. I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends or family.

"My husband and I started the hypnobirthing classes with Lorraine when I was circa 30 weeks. After the first session, we decided to also use Lorraine as our doula (I had started my pregnancy with the "give me all the drugs" mantra and I didn't really know what a doula was until I met Lorraine). This was hands-down the BEST decision that my husband and I made for my pregnancy. The hypnobirthing class content predominantly gave us the confidence to question and push back on things that didn't feel right, which I believe saved me unnecessary interventions (and money!). It also gave me the tools to be able to breath effectively at the different stages of labour and to calm myself during quite intense surges. Not all the relaxation techniques resonated with me, but you take the best bits for you and practice them as much as you can in the lead up to the birth so it becomes second-nature when you need to draw on these skills. That being said, the real value of these classes was the relationship that my husband and I were building with Lorraine. Even after the classes concluded, Lorraine would check in regularly via WhatsApp and she dropped in several times. This meant that when it was show-time, we were very comfortable with Lorraine, she knew both my husband and I very well and she knew exactly what to do and say to get me through. She honestly went above and beyond- for example, during phase 1 of my labour at home, she got into the shower with me fully clothed with electric candles and essential oils in hand to assist with my surges (which we found out were very far progressed as we went to the hospital about 30 minutes later and I was fully dilated). This was my first child, my labour lasted for 7.5 hours and my little girl arrived into the world drug and intervention free. I also have a relatively low pain threshold and my mum had long and arduous labours- so there is nothing unique or special about my circumstances- I honestly believe it was the combination of the hypnobirthing classes and Lorraine's doula magic that allowed me to have a birth we could have only dreamed about. Since the birth, Lorraine has continued to check-in on me and bub- she genuinely cares and loves her clients.
Don't think twice about it- book Lorraine! If you can combine the hypnobirthing classes and her doula services, even better. She was honestly a God-send and there is no way we could have had the birth we did without her. "
