Claire Heenan Doula
Blue Mountains, Penrith and Hawkesbury doula support
Every woman deserves continuity of support, every woman deserves a doula.
I trust deeply that women are the experts when it comes to their babies. As your doula, it's my role to guide you with transparent information, emotional support and physical comfort so that you have the best possible chance of having an empowered experience. If you are birthing in the Blue Mountains, or Western Sydney, I will be by your side before, during and following birth, helping you to make informed choices about the care of you and your baby. I also facilitate Women's Circles in the beautiful Springwood MoonCourt temple, providing a sacred, safe space for women to connect, share and build a tribe full of support and encouragement.
Dear warrior woman,
I’m Claire. I’m glad you’ve found me!
The sisterhood. The divine feminine. The power of women to raise each other up. That’s my jam!
I’ve always believed in the magic created when women support women and this is at the heart of my work as a doula. I am lucky enough to live and work primarily within the beautiful Blue Mountains community but I am passionate about powering with women from all over Sydney through the most
transition of their lives.
Whether it’s advocating for a pregnant mother when it is hard for her to advocate for herself, being a source of unbiased information, or simply being a sounding board, I work to enrich every mother’s experience of birth…
Because, sometimes doctor’s forget...sometimes family forget…and sometimes you forget...your experience of birth matters. It’s something that will resonate through the rest of your life. I often think to myself, we put so much energy and thought into weddings and other big life events, it seems strange that we as a society don’t put the same investment into bringing a tiny human into the world.
Now, if you’ve read this far, I might be preaching to the converted but some people see a doula as something a bit new-age and a little bit woo-woo, but to me, it seems like the most natural and logical thing in the world. Who doesn’t need a little extra knowledge, guidance in making informed choices in a confusing and overwhelming system, and a bit of extra support? So, if it makes sense to you, get in touch! Our first meeting is absolutely obligation free but hopefully we can work together to rock your birth, your way.
