"Our journey together"
"Let's create and nurture positive, meaningful experiences together"
I believe every woman deserves to be heard and respected especially during her birth experience. Being a part of their journey and helping them transition into motherhood is what I am passionate about.

We gave birth to our first little one in Singapore in 2020, amidst really unstable times for the healthcare sector, facing Covid restrictions for hospitals, doctor visits, etc. Bringing Chantel into our fold, to guide us through the pregnancy, delivery, and post delivery was the best decision we could have made. She helped us to be able to stay focused on what this incredible chapter of our life could offer, and on the experience as a family, keeping everything in a positive light. She was by my side every step of the way, checking in daily and helped me to confidentially and comfortably deliver our little one.
Even in the days after, I really don't think I could have had such a successful breast feeding journey without the support and insights she offered. Chantel is full of super helpful resources, very hands on if that's what you want, but also has the intuition to understand how her role in your journey fits seamlessly into your own family dynamic.
I had 36 hours of labour, and Chantel was there throughout, guiding us, hands-on with everything that we need, and tirelessly helping and being there for us. She guided us throughout on the exercises needed to get the labour progressing, and she was very well equipped for the birth, even set the vibe right in our labour room with candle lights and aromatherapy. It was not an easy one, yet she never stopped giving us the courage & support until baby Aqsa was born.
I cannot recommend Chantel and Blooming Births enough. I was lucky enough to get a recommendation for her and from the first moment we met I instantly felt comfortable. In the weeks leading up to my daughter’s birth she was so helpful, not just with me but also my husband! Making sure he was ready as well. My daughter’s birth was a bit traumatic and obviously not at all what we planned for, but her calm and collected self was exactly what I needed, as well as when she had to tell some nurses to back off she did!
