"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers-
Strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their Inner Strength".

-Barbara Katz Rothman

Welcome to my page

Kia Ora and thanks for visiting my page.

My name is Tere and I am a birth & postpartum Doula working in the beautiful Hawkes Bay of New Zealand.

I believe that every new family deserves to be loved and supported while they transition into parenthood. The proverb "It takes a village to raise a child" is still relevant today.


The reality of that now is, that many of us don't have our 'people' to help us navigate this new chapter and this can result in us feeling inadequate as parents. It is my role as a Doula to bring practical and emotional support back to those families whose village is not there to guide and love them through that transformational time.

“Our Tere Godmother! I don't think I could of survived this journey without you. When people ask if its worth hiring a doula?! Hands down "They are worth every penny and more..." Thank you loving me through this new season.
