Welcome to Birth By Nature
The role of a doula...
The term doula comes from ancient Greece meaning “servant to women”
The aim of a doula is to enhance the well being of the mother during pregnancy, labour and birth. We do not clinically manage the birth but are employed privately by women to give emotional informational and physical support through the birth process.
Current research shows that women who utilise the services of a doula can expect:
- an epidural use rate reduced by 60%
- a 50% less chance of a caesarean birth
- syntocin use reduced by 40%
- narcotics use reduced by 30%
- forceps use reduced by 30%
- the length of labour to be reduced by 25%

Rachael runs the Beer and Bubs Melbourne sessions at the Limerick Arms
Hotel in South Melbourne. Beer and Bubs is a one night session at the
pub where expectant dads learn how to support their partner through the birth of
their baby. Childbirth is daunting for men too and this session prepares
fathers for an active, caring role. This session is designed to help men gain the practical knowledge they need to be involved in the birth in a positive, practical and useful way.
