“The knowledge about how to give birth is born within every woman: women do not need to be taught how to give birth but rather to have more trust and faith in their own body knowledge.” Birth Works

My name is Sarrah Jayne

I support women and their families through the journey of birth.

I am a qualified Doula, Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher in Island Bay, Wellington. Birth and pregnancy is such an incredible journey and women should be nurtured, supported, affirmed and celebrated during this transition. Many woman who I doula for are looking for the added comfort of having a person on whom they can call upon to help them relax, unwind and understand the constant changes that happens throughout pregnancy.

I offer a range of services including pregnancy massage, yoga, breath work, relaxation and belly dance to prepare you, your mind and body, for birth.

I can be a companion if you require, for antenatal classes, appointments with your midwife and or obstetrician and work with your birth support professionals to help create a cohesive birth team. I trust wholeheartedly in the ability of women to birth their babies in whatever way feels right for them. In their home or in the hospital, I can be on-call to work with you and your partner until bubba is bundled up in your arms. I also provide postpartum massage for new mums in their homes.

My approach is supportive, affirming and nurturing. I love what I do and would love to be of support to you and yours during your birth journey.

If you are in the Wellington region and would like to know more, I offer the first consultation for free. I also run a Wellington “Meet the Doulas” group where you can come and meet a few of us and learn more about having a doula for your birth. See here for more details.
