Melbourne Doula

Welcome to 'Melbourne Doula', the place where I share what birth work is teaching is me, and what I am learning from the wonderful families who have invited me to share this most special season of their lives. Here you will find information about me and the doula services I provide, birth stories from remarkable women and their loved ones, as well as all kinds of resources to enrich your own journey of discovery. And welcome also to BLISSFUL HERBS, the home of beautiful herbal teas and bath herbs to support wellness through every season of life.

Another Submission to the Senate Committee

Some people just have a way of calling a spade and spade and getting right to the point. This submission, composed by a much-loved mate of mine, would be funny if the situation wasn't such a debacle:

Dear Fascist Bully Boys,

I don't know why I am bothering to write this, because it made no fucking difference the first 8 times I wrote it.

I want the right to make my own decisions about where and with whom I use my vagina.

I don't want your input on whom I sleep with nor with whom I choose to birth with.

Do you really honestly think for one minute that you care more about the outcome of my birth than I do?

How much have you invested into my birth?

How much has Pesce?


I don't want your medicare. I don't want your insurance. I don’t want your idea of collaboration.

I just want to be treated like the highly intelligent person that I am and given the basic human right to choose homebirth with a midwife for myself and my family.

Please keep your laws off my body.


Angry tax-payer.
Amen, sister!
