The support you need to be the best mama for your baby
As a qualified birth and postpartum doula (aka mama nurturer), I wholeheartedly believe that it’s vital to ‘mother the mother’.
I work one-on-one with mamas of new babies in the Wollongong region, to ease the transition that comes with the addition of a new baby to the family.
Traditionally, around the world, all women are supported by their village for forty days after childbirth. In Australia, we’ve lost this tradition along the way and my mission is to be that support for you and your family
If you love massage and delicious food, and you’d like to invest in the best possible first few months with your baby, this package is for you.

nutrition & wellness advice
As a postpartum doula I give you the emotional, physical and informational support you need to create and implement your own self care plan. I will help you to feel confident in trusting your own instincts and intuition. We’ll work together to make sure you continue to get the support, confidence, health and love you need long after I go home.
A lot of new Mamas tell me they feel:
overwhelmed by all of the conflicting advice they receive on new motherhood
stressed because they don't have the support they need
pressure to get back into 'normal' life soon after having a baby
unsure of what to do and if they are doing a 'good enough' job
lonely and disconnected, without connections with other Mums
Would you like to feel:
nurtured, cared for and loved as a new mother
supported to parent in a way that feels right for you and your family
able to enjoy and bond with your new baby without additional pressures
confident in your choices and abilities as a new mother
connected to other like-minded new mothers and part of a 'community'
I’ve been working with pregnant women and new Mamas since 2008 to help them feel supported, relaxed and happy in new motherhood. I would love to help you too!

Briony was born to do this work! Her kind and gentle nature and support during my transition to motherhood made my experience the best it could be. I highly recommend the New Mama’s Package, with weekly home visits, massages, nourishing food and reassuring chats. She also helped my partner and I plan our postpartum period, giving us the knowledge and confidence to create a calm and loving environment to bring bub home to.Rachael, Mum to Eloise 2017
I feel so blessed to have found Briony and have her support me during this new stage of motherhood. Knowing she is coming every week has made such a difference to me feeling relaxed, empowered and confident as a woman and a learning mum. I am very supported by my family and friends but their visits are all about baby and Briony comes for me. It is my time to talk to her about how I feel, what I am worried about with no judgement. I feel so cared for in the best possible way with good healing food, magic massage hands and amazing knowledge and reassurance. Briony is truly an angel and a beautiful guide for motherhoodMichelle, Mum to Aneira 2017
