Sally is a mother of two lively and lovely boys. It was through her positive experiences of having a doula at her births and how well her doula supported Sally and her husband that she decided to train as a doula so she could help women to have a beautiful experience.
Sally is now a doula, doula trainer for Australian Doulas and child birth educator. She is also a trainee Birthing From Within Mentor.
Since training as a doula in 2008 and working closely with many couples it has become more and more evident that the father’s role at birth and postnatally is lacking the support and recognition it deserves. Men are expected to attend the birth yet are unprepared for such an event. Not only that but traditional prenatal classes don’t acknowledge the fathers role and how they can have a positive influence on the birth and support their partner well.
