How I became a doula

About Blissful Births

Hi there! My name is Bere, and I’m a registered nurse and certified full spectrum doula trained in Australia, currently living in Indonesia with my husband.

Growing up in the small coastal town of Byron Bay, often referred to as the “hippie” town of Australia, I was surrounded by holistic medicine and healing from a young age.

This upbringing not only shaped my career but also ignited my passion for motherhood, pregnancy, and birth.

I am the youngest of three girls, and my mother’s experiences with childbirth have had a profound impact on my journey.

She often shares the stories of my sisters’ birth, in which she attempted to birth twins naturally at home in 1994…

My Story

“Empowering women and families through their journey of pregnancy”

At that time, this was considered unacceptable by hospital standards, and after successfully birthing one twin at home, she went to the hospital where she was thought “crazy” for not having the second twin via c-section. 

My mother’s experience with my own birth was healing and empowering, as she felt the power of birthing a baby naturally “in 33 minutes”. 

These stories have stayed with me and fuelled my passion for supporting women and families through their unique pregnancy and birth journeys.

Although I don’t have children of my own yet (I don’t think my husband goes a day without hearing about baby, pregnancy, or birth-related topics!), I am extremely passionate about empowering women and families through their journey of pregnancy, birth, and beyond – whatever that may look like for them.

Combining clinical and alternative birthing

As a full-spectrum doula and registered nurse, I believe in the importance of combining modern medicine with alternative therapies, and in supporting each individual’s choices during this special time.

So if you’re looking for someone who understands both the science and the heart behind pregnancy and birth, you’ve come to the right place. 

I would be honoured to support you and your family during this incredible journey, and I look forward to getting to know you better.

Warmest regards ~ Bere
