BIRTH COMPANION + PREGNANCY & POSTPARTUM DOULA

I am a keeper of sacred birth and postpartum, a photographer. and a mother of two boys. I am humbled by witnessing women and birthing people step into their power and view their body for how awe inspiring it truly is. I form circles of safety for you to delve deep within, holding the space to clear the way for your greatest transformation. I am a birth guide who can show you how to take responsibility for your birth, bring light to the ways the system can work against us and help prepare you for the rite of passage that birth is. No matter how you wish to birth, it is your choice, I just want to see you running your own show, as the strong, independent and inspiring being you are.

Abi Smissen

Birth and Postpartum Keeper

I am a wife, mother to two and a Birth and Postpartum Keeper. I believe deeply in the power of being held and heard during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. A time of metamorphosis, transformation and surrender. I know, firsthand, the power of a sovereign and empowered birth. One that can exist in homes, in birth centres, in hospitals, in operating theatres. I am a witness to the sanctity of postpartum, the raw beauty and brutality that sits side by side as you become the mother or the parent that you need to be. You are the expert of your birth, your body and your becoming, and I am here to support and not assert as you lean into your intuition and make those decisions. It is your story to write.

Since the first time witnessing the primal, goddess-like strength harnessed by women during labour and birth, I've been in total awe.

From pre-conception through to postpartum, I will be by your side, celebrating and loving you every step of the way.
